Make out a written practice schedule every day.

• Pass out practice schedules to your assistant coaches before practice each day. Post your Practice Schedule on the fence or wall of the dugout.
• Post your practice schedule for players to see. Let players know what is going on and that you have a "Practice Plan".
• Make sure to document or write down each drill covered each day. Keep these practice schedules in a book as your "practice log". You can go back to see if you have adequately covered all fundamentals or if you need to put more time into a particular aspect of your game or practice. K
• Keep a log of how many pitches pitchers throw in practice and when they threw. You will also want to make notes on each day's schedule regarding strong points, weak points or any behavior exhibited by a player that you want a record of.
• You may also want to set "TEAM DAILY PRACTICE GOALS" such as...."Every player will take 300 practice swings today!", "Our middle infielders will turn 50 double plays today!" "Every outfielder will field 50 balls today!” These are just examples.
