A Personal Letter from Dan Keller

Dear Coach,

This online training program was launched after 20 years of hosting in-person coaching clinics. Being 2020, the offering was just in time for in-person instruction to completely cease! Wow, what an opportunity.

It is comprised of six sessions of skill training videos, diving deeper into the how and why behind coaching each skill. There’s also six sessions of Q&A, recorded from questions submitted by coaches like you. Finally, we’ve compiled supporting drill videos and resources to support your role as coach.

The feedback has been awesome and the experience has been fulfilling for all. I’m excited to extend a personal invite to you, a challenge to be your best, and an opportunity to step your game up as a positive influence on your kids.

Following below are high-level details and an invitation to join me as a trained coach. I commit to giving you my absolute best to help you make this the greatest year of your coaching life.

Play hard, have fun!

CEO ~ DK
“Dan's blend of baseball knowledge, training techniques, communication skill and love of teaching kids is captured in this well-designed course. He teaches baseball from fundamentals to complexities in a manner that coaches, novice to expert, can grasp and use effectively”
- Abe KeyPresident & CEO, PONY Baseball & Softball, Inc.

WHAT IS A COACHING CLINIC ONLINE?

In this course you'll learn HOW TO COACH all major baseball skills - Hitting, Pitching, Infield, Outfield, etc. Coaching 101 best practices and the Mental Game are also covered, as well as tangible, practical tips for running better practices. All classes are available online, immediately accessible in a special members-only area.

The purpose of this course is to help you coach better baseball. To assist you in maximizing your fulfillment on the field, as measured by your impact on, and the development of, your players. We will look deeply into the skills, the practices, and, perhaps most importantly, the attitude and actions of amazing coaching. Remember, true fulfillment in coaching is found in the relationships with athletes and their families. Communication, psychology, management, delegation, discipline… these are the attributes of a truly special leader.

Coaching with a TRUE plan differs from traditional coaching in some very important ways:

  • When we coach with a plan we are more fulfilled. With predictable and measurable steps, you’ll now when to move on and when to stay put.
  • When we coach with a plan, athletes are happier. Expectations are clear, they understand what is being asked of them.
  • When we coach with a plan, families can train at home. Parents can hold athletes accountable, supporting you, and improving their athlete’s skill.
  • When we coach with a plan, athletes improve. Not much more to say beyond that, these training plans have been developed over years and years of bumps and bruises!
