Quick Tip #14
Instructional cues are keywords that can communicate a proper technique and do it quickly. Instructional cues are short phrases and sometimes can be comprised of one word. The beauty of these instructional cues are that young kids will absorb them. T-Ball can be considered “instructional cue heaven” for coaches and parents.…Continue

I’ve already given some t-ball non-playing tips such as a team newsletter. Here’s something to try. A no cell phone day! I live outside New York City and frequent there a lot. I like many people are amazed with the cell phone craze and social media, texting etc. It has gotten out of hand. And in many cases rude. When I would be in New York City stopped at a red light, most people that looked to be under 30-years …
