Coaches Corner

Welcome to 2018 Eagan Baseball!

We are all looking forward to a fun and rewarding season where all the Teams in the program can improve their skills, expand their love of the game and make new lasting friendships.

 

Baseball is a challenging and wonderful sport. It is individual-based and it is team-based. It is very humbling yet can be very rewarding just moments later.

 

All of us at the EBA hope you take the responsibility as their baseball Coach very seriously.  So before the season begins please review the following Eagan Baseball objectives.

 

Coaching Introduction

 

  • We believe that kids gain confidence and a love for the game through positive feedback from parents, coaches, and other players. Skill level develops at different rates for kids, but you can always provide the team positive feedback for effort and hustle.

We also believe in trying to make practices as fun and entertaining for the kids as possible, while providing the repetition and instruction that they need to improve. Attention spans can be limited so strive to keep them moving and active.
