Little League University Coach Training Program

The Little League? Coach Pitch Program was created to provide volunteer managers and coaches in the Little League Minor Baseball Division with the appropriate direction to organize and efficiently operate practices throughout the season. 

This 12-week program focuses on the fundamentals of baseball, and is designed to build a solid foundation for becoming a successful ballplayer, including the ??emotional fuel tank,?? as described by Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA). The program assumes that the volunteers who have accepted the responsibility of coaching children in this age group have a limited background in baseball and the leadership and teaching acumen that is inherent with coaching Little Leaguers? at this level of the program. 

Each week??s lesson offers extensive review, while continuing to tout the importance of team-building and chemistry. Coaches can use the opportunities provided in this program to engage with the children on your team and grow their self-worth. It's important for coaches to remember that Little League is a fun activity that has as its prime objective nurturing and growing well-rounded and productive people, not developing elite ballplayers. 

A great resource for a first-time or veteran coach, Little League??s Coach Pitch program includes: 


  • Detailed practice plans for each week of the 12-week program

  • Quick practice plans for each week of the 12-week program

  • Detailed diagrams explaining each drill and activity

  • Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) Tips for each week of the program
