Big Al's Baseball Coaching Program

Hello managers, coaches and parents:

Calgary North West Little League has purchased Big Al’s online Program for all the Managers, Coaches and Parents in our league for 2022.

The coaching programs include… videos on how to teach the skills, lots of drills to incorporate into your practices and help in identifying and correcting common mistakes. There are ready-to-go practice plans for the pre-season, during the season plus plans to help prepare for the post season. The strategy section covers positional play and roles and responsibilities of players in game situations.  It also has tips and plans to help you be effective as a coach on game day.  Big Al has designed these Coaching programs to help you all season long! 

The parent programs include… videos and instruction on all the skills that your coach will be teaching this year.  It also includes lots of fun drills, games and challenges that you can practice at home so you can get stronger and improve your skills all at home. There is also a section on strategy with roles and responsibilities for every player on the diamond.  Finally Big Al has created a set of Backyard Workouts for every skill.  Go to the Big Al Way section for each skill and print off the Backyard Workouts checklist and keep track of the workouts you complete during the season.

For Minor divisions up through Senior, if you are cancelling/postponing a game, you must notify the NWLL Umpire Scheduler  umpirescheduler@nwll.ca.
