Adapting our Sports Leagues
During these rapidly changing times, coaches and parents need to address the needs of the players and kids in our community. Our League Retreat emphasizes proactive solutions to the current obstacles that could be hindering team performance. Aaron Locks, CEO and founder of the NAofA believes,
“These times require additional guidance to help create a safe space for kids, parents, and coaches to return to youth sports. Through our Coaching Retreats, we have been able to give guidance to coaching kids on a variety of different topics. These include their social & emotional health, return to play safety protocols, as well as, sports specific coaching skills and drills.”
The Softball Commissioner at Pleasant Hill Baseball Association, Gary Chang, attended this League Retreat. He commented,
“The social and mental health of sports cannot be overlooked. It is essential to the success of the athlete and team. I came away wanting to hear more.”
This program presents updated drills to enhance individual skill development. In addition, there is an emotional and social component of this event that, in turn, will shape a more well-rounded, healthy athlete.
