Ballard Little League is excited to announce its Pre-Season Skills Classes that are being run by Baseball Positive, the area’s top instruction organization for players and coaches at the 12U level of play. Many of you know BP Director, former professional player and NCAA D-1 Head Coach, Mark Linden and BP Lead Instructor and former player at Seattle U, Sean Narby from the many camps they have run in North Seattle over the past eight years.

In these classes, players improve their skills, increase their confidence, and retain what they learn through Baseball Positive’s approach to instruction that is specifically designed for this age group. Kids excel in these programs because the teaching uses language that is meaningful to them, follows a step-by-step, building block approach and provides the most important factor in skill development - massive quality repetitions.

Please join in and learn right along with the players!
Baseball Positive demystifies and simplifies the teaching of skills. These classes are designed for Coaches and Parents to participate and learn “How to Teach” kids effectively; the hands-on experience is invaluable. The more knowledge we have in our league, the stronger our league.

Each participating coach and parent receives a Coaching Manual that includes all the program’s content. The manual contains video and pictures illustrating key points. Teaching these skills to kids is quite elementary, when following the Baseball Positive approach.

Coaches and Parents who do not have a child in the program are welcome and invited to participate and learn the content. Contact Mark Linden of Baseball Positive about the teaching process and the coaching information: 206 714 5276;
