Westwood Little League - Kalamazoo Michigan

Coach Training and Quiz

We want to have the best prepared coaches in Kalamazoo Little League so we are continuing something we started in 2017.

There are many Little League resources to help you learn to coach, to plan and lead practices, and to understand the rules. We have put a few of them together and ask that you read them and then take a 10-question quiz. This should take between 30 and 60 minutes total. You can take the quiz as many times as necessary until you get at least 8 correct.

Strategies and teaching methods differ by age and baseball vs. softball, but these are fundamental and foundational. They also line up with what we want to promote: teaching the game, having fun, knowing the rules, being fair.

Once you complete the reading, you can take the quiz (updated in 2023).

This training and quiz should be completed before your first practice. Please contact us if you have questions. There are a number of other resources available on our website under Resources on the For Coaches page.

Thanks for taking the time to prove we have the best prepared coaches in the area.
