How to Communicate to the Coach About Playing Time

Playing time is an interesting thing in youth baseball. Somebody is never happy. Players get frustrated if they are not getting field time. Parents become agitated if they are paying money for their son to be on a team but yet he is sitting on the bench more than he is playing. However, when all is said and done, there will always be hitters who sit on the bench. It’s a numbers issue since no team can run solely on nine players for an entire season.

Most coaches are fully aware of the playing time issue and do all they can at the younger levels to get all players in the game. But, what is truly frustrating to a head coach or a coaching staff is how most playing time concerns are communicated by players or parents. Because many communication 먹튀검증. problems spiral out of control and cause more damage to all parties involved, I’d like to explain a few thoughts and guidelines on the topic of communication.

Leadership lessons are all around if you know where to look. And sometimes they show up in the most unexpected places!

A few months ago, we did something we’ve never done before: we went to see a NASCAR race.

We have a friend who works for one of the big racing teams, and he got us tickets to see the “Bank of America 500” event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.Okay, so Danica Patrick notwithstanding, those four words make up the magic phrase that starts the action. And like most situations, this was very different in “real life” than what we had seen on TV.

The cars are loud. And when 43 of these cars come around the turn at an average speed of 146.194 mph, it’s really loud-even with the protective headphones we were wearing.The problem we had wasn’t so much the noise, as it was keeping track of the cars that were from our friend’s team. We started asking him questions about strategy and tactics, and about the fans and their team loyalties.
