Hello from CoachDeck!
It's hard to believe we're already getting close to the end of another baseball season. It seems we were celebrating Opening Day just last week!
There's so much new here at CoachDeck it is hard to fit it all in. Our new CoachDeck for Softball is scheduled for release this summer so finally the girls get their own deck!
We've established relationships with two new and growing companies. One provides online registration and communication tools; the other allows us to build you a custom online sporting goods store you can link to from your league website. This unique fundraising opportunity is being used by hundreds of organizations and it's FREE! Best of all, no one has to sell anything and no one on your board has to manage it. If you'd like more information on either or both: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also believe you'll enjoy the new way we're presenting our informative and interesting articles, which enables you to share your viewpoint and read feedback from others. We know you have some great ideas for hitting drills. Read Dan Gazaway's article on improving bat speed
and pass along your favorite tips. And, do you think sports today are too structured, too serious, and ruined by crazed parents? Or do you believe the times in which we live dictate more supervision, and that heightened parental involvement is a good thing? Brian Gotta's article
presents both sides of debate. We'd love to hear from you so we know what you think.
