Quick Tip #6

Shorter practices are more beneficial than longer ones. This is especially true for kids playing t-ball. Longer practices can produce both physical and mental fatigue. When I first began coaching youth baseball with the 10, 11 and 12 year olds, I was obsessed with producing the most effective practice possible. I learned over a period of time if I integrated skill drills with fun drills I would get the best results from my team. And the fun drills would also touch upon different skills we either learned or were new. In t-ball shorter practices are even more important because of the young age. T-ball coaches have to understand they are not doing a bad job by having a practice of say 45-minutes if it is productive.  Don't confuse activity with accomplishment. If you work at it, any new or experienced t-ball coach can run an effective practice from 45-60 minutes.
