Invest in your Coaches

 Coaching Certification

Now included in the Coaching 4-8 and 9-12 programs.

When your league invests in a League License, your coaches get access to Big Al’s rich set of online resources, your league also gets access to Big Al’s NEW Coaching Certification program.

Coaches who take their certification will be guided through the 5 sections of the online coaching program and will interact with the comprehensive set of resources also available all season long.  They will learn how to get ready for the season and how to teach skills and game strategy. They will learn how to work with every player on their team and will see how to access to hundreds of drills and games videos. They will learn how to design effective practice plans and get tips on how to get organized for game day and more.

We understand the challenge to find a qualified trainer to run a coaching clinic every year.  We know it is not possible to make it a requirement for every coach in the league to attend on a specific date.  Some coaches legitimately cannot make it, and in many cases, leagues don’t have all their coaches even selected by the date of their clinic.

Now you can make Coaching Certification a requirement for all your coaches. It takes about 60 – 90 minutes to go through the process so a relatively small investment of their time to become a better coach.  Every coach can and should fit this requirement into their own schedules as they prepare for the season.

We have included a way for you to track the progress of your coaches through the certification process. Your League License includes an online Presidents Report where you will be able to log in and see when each of your coaches have completed their Certification.

We know that leagues who use this approach and make training and development of every coach on every team a top priority create more fun and improvement for all players and have happier parents.  Ultimately more players develop a passion for the game and come back to signup and play next season...and you have a much healthier league!
