A Personal Letter from Dan Keller

Dear Coach,

After a great experience in the fall of 2019, we are ready to expand the Dan Keller Online Coaching Clinic to a second “class.” This group will kick off with a full delivery of coaching-the-coach video training mid-February!

After nearly 20 years giving in-person coaching clinics, Fall 2019 was THE TIME. We launched the first webinar based baseball coaches training program we’ve ever heard of :) An intimate crew of coaches was enrolled to participate in this first-time event, and what a blast we had - six sessions of live video, six sessions of live Q&A, drills, resources, shared community… it was awesome. Based on the feedback from those coaches, Session II is locked and loaded with several key improvements. I’m excited to extend a personal invite, a challenge to be your best, and an opportunity to step your game up as a positive influence on your kids.

Join me personally, as we prepare you to have the best spring season EVER of your coaching career. New for this session, I’ll deliver six training videos at the onset of the program. Following, we’ll schedule six interactive Q&A sessions over six calendar weeks. Each session will involve live interaction with our community, as well as the answers to questions submitted to the site. To support each clinic session, we’ll connect and share a suite of professional drill videos in partnership with Dugout Captain.

I found the experience of connecting live with this online community to be an inspiring (and fun!) way to support our most passionate coaches. And I’m committed to this program as a focal point of my work/life in 2020. As we expand Session #2 to include coaches outside of the DC community, we’ll grind, laugh, compete, and share… together! I look forward to meeting you on our virtual ballfield.

Here are some high-level details and an invitation to be among the very first to sign up and join me as a trained coach. I commit to giving you my absolute best to help you make this the absolute 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 are covered, as well as tangible, practical tips for running better practices. All classes are available online (upon program start date) in a special members-only area, and is organized on the How-to-Coach Plan for a particular skill.

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!

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO WITH YOUR COACHING?

Whether a young father, an experienced veteran, or a coach looking to make a buck, there is room for you in the baseball world! The required MUST to coaching is overflowing families with value - that happens then their athlete improves. You may have had some success, but true coaching success must come from an individual that is positive, confident, fun, and magnetic! A family must recognize you as a positive influence on their athlete.

In response to the challenges and needs of our time, many of us are called today to mobilize our talents and express ourselves in immensely creative ways.

What are you being challenged to do?

  • Coach better rec ball?
  • Start a club or travel team?
  • Give lessons or private instruction?
  • Open a training facility or batting cage center?
  • Create an educational program for underprivileged kids?

All of us can do extraordinary things. With the teachings and practices in the Coaching Clinic Online course, you'll train in the art of better coaching, so that you can serve others while thoroughly fulfilled. You will learn to Play free!! Free from anxiety, aggression, and stress. You will learn how to lose yourself to the coaching process, enjoying every practice and every rep along the way.
