Teaching For Tomorrow
In 2010, Little League Baseball Canada, with the generous support of the Little League Canada Foundation, introduced the "Teaching for Tomorrow" educational program by having our National Coach, Al Herback, present clinics across the country. These clinics became an instant hit!
We are very pleased to be able to offer these clinics once again in 2013. Al will attend your area to put on the clinic and Little League Baseball Canada will cover all the expenses with the exception of a venue. The local district will need to provide the venue, such as a gymnasium, and every league can send their coaches to the clinic. Most districts or leagues can gain access to a gym at little or no cost. Don’t delay as the season is almost upon us and many clinics have already been booked.
Training manuals and DVD presentations are available at special rates when purchased at a clinic.
For more information, check out the coach section of this website. You may also contact our office at Canada@littleleague.org or 613-731-3301 or Al Herback directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-273-4656.
Little League Canada has some new instructional resources available for purchase. To place an order, please call 1-613-731-3301 or send an email to Canada@littleleague.org. Order form below.

Teaching For Tomorrow - Positional Play (Second Base)
March 20, 2012
Spring is slowly approaching and baseball season is just around the corner. I see many signs being displayed throughout Calgary advertising Little League Baseball registration dates within the different communities. Clinic dates have been completed throughout the country with Windsor, Ontario already completed.
With this March newsletter as was in February, I will be concentrating on another infield position, second base. As you read on, you will see there are many responsibilities required to play second base. You need to be a good fielder, but not necessarily possessing a strong arm. It is ideal for a smaller player. As each position is not written to directly, much of this is not covered in the Playing the Game manual.
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.
Teaching For Tomorrow - Creating a Positive Experience
February 27, 2011
Coaching baseball is a topic that has been written about for nearly a century. Effective coaching techniques and desired outcomes are written about all of the time. When I read a book on coaching or listen to a successful coach speak on baseball, I'm always excited about learning the techniques they use to achieve the desired outcome of building a great experience for kids.

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.

It is hard to believe that it's August! How quickly summer is passing us by, and I'm sure in most areas you had weather that hampered many games and events. The regular season has come and gone and we are now into all-stars and the completion of the championships.
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.
Here what they are saying about Training for Tomorrow!
May 5, 2010
Our National Coach, Al Herback was in Ottawa recently to run his clinic on the new "Training for Tomorrow" coaching program. This event was a great success and here is an email sent from one of the participants.
The Better the Practice, the Better the Team
May 4, 2010
It goes without saying that every practice should be conducted in a safe, caring environment. Safeguarding the health and well being of every child far exceeds anything else that may happen at a practice. Practices should also include a wide variety of fun filled activities and drills. As we all know, fun is the main reason children play any sport.
