Teaching For Tomorrow
Little League Baseball Canada (LLBC) launched the Teaching for Tomorrow education program for managers and coaches in the spring of 2010 through the generosity of the Little League Foundation of Canada. With AI Herback as the author and presenter of the program to Districts throughout Canada, it was the beginning of a very successful program.
Over the past four years more than 4,500 participants have attended clinics hosted by Districts from coast to coast. On average, sixteen clinics have been requested from year to year. As well, these clinics have had two initiatives by LLBC as major highlights. All attendees are offered a Level I Technical for their participation at either session and the Food Bank has received thousands of pounds donated by the managers and coaches over the years.
Through the generosity of LLBC and the Little League Foundation of Canada the clinics have been funded to those hosting, thus allowing for the inception of the Food Bank initiative to the program. The only voluntary cost to attend is to bring a perishable food item.
As 2014 will be the fifth year of the program, and with AI leading the way as National Coach, everyone from our fine District Administrators, local boards, and league presidents, to our valued managers and coaches on the fields.
And let's not forget the players who will be the beneficiaries of this unique program. Children will only learn to play this wonderful game with the help of those leaders. Take advantage of the clinics being offered for the Learning and Playing the Game Programs.
Please feel free to get in touch with AI at any time and book your clinic for the spring of 2014. He can be reached at (403) 273-4656 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As well, you may contact the Ottawa office directly for information.
From LLBC, thank you so much to everyone for your past support and I look forward to serving you again.

Teaching for Tomorrow 2012 Clinics
October 13, 2011
One of Canada’s greatest attractions in minor sports is Little League Baseball. It has given our children the opportunity to learn this great game when the first league chartered here in Canada in 1951! The excitement for Little League Baseball Canada for the coming season will not only be to have our children return for another challenging and fun year but to enhance the training of coaches and managers. The 2012 baseball/softball season will continue the three components put in place last year as they were extremely successful and we thank you for that! The Board of Directors is extremely pleased that with these initiatives in place communities, families, managers, coaches, and players will all be winners. The Teaching for Tomorrow program is very proud to focus on the community and the lives of the children as well as teaching them how to play the game.

Little League Canada has launched a new program in 2010 that appears to becoming a huge success in training of the managers and coaches working with our children throughout the country. The program, Teaching for Tomorrow, not only has a focus on teaching our children the ethics, rules and skills of baseball, but has included working on the life skills necessary for the future of each child.

I had the pleasure of attending the Canadian Little League Championship held in Ancaster, Ontario, which began on Friday, August 6, 2010 with the final game completed August 14, 2010. As I had arrived in Ancaster on Wednesday, August 11, many of the preliminary games had already been played. The teams involved from the 5 regions in Canada were Little Mountain from Vancouver, the Prairies were represented by Fish Creek out of Calgary, Ontario had two teams with Ancaster being the host along with Windsor South, Quebec was represented by Notre-Dame-de-Grace and Glace Bay, NS came out of the Atlantic region.
Teaching for Tomorrow - Questions and Answers
June 28, 2010
It has been almost five months since the launch of the new education program for Little League Canada, Teaching for Tomorrow. There has been a tremendous amount of effort making the program available to all teams in Canada in both English and French. No matter the program, no matter the sport, there will always be ways to improve the logistics and information distribution to the local leagues year by year.
