MSLL Coaching Methodology

MSLL’s past Coaching Director Steve Armistead drove an initiative to standardize coaching methods across all teams in MSLL. These manuals cover the goals and expectations for each division, as well as detailed instructions on teaching skills and drills that can be used during practices. Teams are strongly advised to read and follow the advice given in these manuals so that all MSLL players can expect to receive consistent coaching direction regardless of their team placement each season.



Coaching Courses

MSLL recommends the Little League coaching courses for all our coaches. These courses are run each Spring shortly before the season starts and are hosted by different leagues in the Greater Vancouver area. These courses are free and any MSLL parent (whether planning to coach or not) is welcome to attend.

Little League University

Little League International recognizes and appreciates the challenges that come with being a Little League coach, so it has developed a free on-line coaching resource that coaches can turn to for reference, education, or to stay current with the latest drills and coaching techniques. This website includes drills, practice plans and detailed videos designed for coaches of all baseball levels. This is an excellent resource, and we thoroughly recommend all our coaches to make regular use of this website.
