PowerChalk CEO Chaz Henry has been coaching his sons’ baseball teams since they were 5 years old. With his oldest son soon to graduate high school, it’s safe to say that Chaz knows a thing or two about coaching. According to Chaz, a good baseball practice is “having fun while repeating good form in order to advance your skills.”
Chaz uses creativity in designing his practice sessions. He teaches kids not be afraid of the ball by tossing bean bags to gloveless players. He hits soft rubber baseballs high into the air with tennis racquets to maximize tracking skills and minimize the space required for the drill. Chaz gets parents involved regardless of their baseball experience level. He emphasizes keeping kids engaged and moving so they don’t end up in the fetal position.
Watch the video below to view all of Chaz’s strategies for running an efficient baseball practice.
