Coaching Kids Sports

  • Proper lifting — We’ve all seen the bags of bats, baseballs, gloves, bases, soccer balls and nets that our kids’ coaches lug with them everywhere and considering the weight, coaches should be sure they are using proper lifting techniques. Either get down on one knee, or squat and use the strength from your arms to lift heavy bags. Keep your back upright and stand up using your leg muscles to provide the lifting force. Hold the bag as close to your body as possible when lifting so you can use your muscles most efficiently.

  • Stretch — When you get the kids out to warm up with drills, batting practice, kicking or catching, it’s important to loosen up your muscles and stretch out beforehand, too. Not only will you be limbering up your back muscles, but you’ll be setting a good example for the kids.

  • Stand tall — If you’re standing for a long period of time, be sure you’re moving around and not just planted on the sidelines or in the dugout. If you are standing in one place, you may want to shift your weight now and then, or stand with one foot elevated (occasionally switching feet) and take a moment to stretch your back every few minutes.

  • Kneel, don’t bend — Whether you’re offering one-on-one advice or bringing the kids in for a huddle, remember to kneel or squat instead of bending over.
