2015 DOUBLE GOAL COACHING.
Rye Little League is a partner with Positive Coaching Alliance, an international organization that helps train coaches and reinforce positive coaching strategies to keep youth sports both positive and constructive even as it embraces competition.
As a partner, Rye Little League requires that EVERY manager, coach, and assistant coach take an on-line course to earn a Double-Goal Coaching certificate. The course takes about an hour and can be taken at your convenience from home.
If you are a coach in A, AA, or AAA, or if this is your first year coaching in the Major League, you should take Course 1. This course teaches some of the essential elements of Positive Coaching (E.L.M., R.O.O.T.S., dealing with mistakes, setting proper goals, etc.). If you’ve taken the course before, this will be a quick refresher.
If you have coached in the Major Leagues for more than one year, you should take Course 2. This course builds on the elements of Course 1 but offers strategies for building a team culture and creating team unity. It will involve some review, but will provide a good deal of new ideas, too.
