By Lori Soard Cheer Coach If you are a new cheerleading coach, you may be wondering just how to coach cheerleading. Organizing tryouts, coming up with practice schedules and creating fresh cheers can seem like overwhelming tasks to a first-time coach. There are some tried and true checklists that can help keep you on track.
As you gain experience, you will add to and take away from these lists, of course. How to Coach Cheerleading: Helpful Checklists One of the most important elements in coaching is being organized. Nothing will frustrate parents and cheerleaders more quickly than a coach that doesn’t offer important information such as upcoming practices or when to arrive for games.
Checklists can help ensure you don’t miss anything important. Before Tryouts If you are chosen to coach before tryouts, then you will also be responsible for organizing the actual tryout practices and tryouts. Depending on the school or gym you are coaching for, you may or may not have a say in how the cheerleaders are chosen for your squad. This is a good time to show cheerleaders and parents that you are organized and on top of things.
Young cheer coaches may find that coaching teen girls can be a challenge as there is not much age difference. Respect can be an issue.

For the past 10 years I’ve been a parent, coach and administrator in youth baseball leagues. I started this blog to share thoughts and experiences as well as interesting stuff I find along the way. My hope is this blog will help kids, coaches and parents get the most out of the youth baseball experience.

If it weren’t for the television camera panning to the runner at first base who’s expected to steal, people would probably forget there is a first base coach. However, there is a first base coach and his duties are important. He is a cheerleader, keeping the runner on first and the batter focused. I could have substituted “mental alertness specialist” or “personnel awareness specialist” or any other important sounding title for “cheerleader,” but in essence he helps maintain focus of the players on the field.

Gameplan Baseball The Management Each team has a large and complex management structure, as the running of a Major League ball club and its minor league teams is a huge task. The management can generally be divided into “The Front Office” the “suits” and “The Coaching Staff” who look after the players day-to-day, and during the game. The Coaching Staff The Coaching Staff are the most visible of the team’s management, and are the people you see making the decisions during the game, on the field of play.
The “Manager” has overall responsibility for running the team, and generally will be seen sitting on the team bench. It’s the manager who decides which players will play each day, when to rest players, when to make a substitution whether a pitcher, a pinch hitter or a pinch runner , and when to come out and argue with an umpire fairly common, particularly for some managers. It’s the manager you’ll see walk to the mound to remove a pitcher.
The manager will be assisted by a number of other coaches. The “First base coach” reminds any runner at first base of his options, and will warn him about pickoff moves and so forth.
