Little League Baseball Canada is pleased to present The 2017 Teaching for Tomorrow Roadshow
The Teaching for Tomorrow Program offers quality coaching resources and materials to Little League coaches right across Canada. It is also designed to help to teach the game of baseball to their local Little League players in an efficient and effective manner as well as develop qualified coaches with the confidence to mold our young Canadian ballplayers on and off the field. The program is packed full of quality coaching information, and baseball specific drills to incorporate with your own Little League team. There are 14 Teaching for Tomorrow clinics scheduled from coast to coast in 2017. Little League Baseball Canada’s National Coach, Jesse Sawyer has assembled a committee of coaches from across Canada to help him deliver coaching clinics in each region. Each of the 14 clinics will be hosted by at least two members of the National Coaching Committee and they will present to the coaches who attend as much information about the program as possible including all the resources, and materials that will help them become more confident on the field whether they have been coaching for years or they are just starting to coach in 2017.
