Clinics

It is MANDATORY that ALL NESLL coaches and managers must attend a coaching clinic leading into the upcoming season.   (It isn’t enough to have attended a coaching clinic leading into last season.)  This is a requirement of Little League International.  NESLL is investing heavily in coaching (better coaches produce better players) providing some superb coaching opportunities this year.  NESLL invites you to attend AS MANY of these free coaching clinics as you can and these are for everyone including the seasoned Majors coaches to the new Tee Ball coaches.

All Divisions:

  • All Managers Meeting is Monday, Feb 29th from 7-9 pm at One Life Community Church.  The address is 3524 NE 95th St.
  • Rijo Coaches Clinic on Friday, March 11 from 6-9 pm at Concordia Gym.  NESLL is bringing in Jose Rijo-Berger to run a coaching clinic for all league coaches.  Rijo Athletics is the #1 attended clinic running in the northwest 16 years, and their clinics offer much more than the skills and drills that coach’s need.  Rijo has trained over 8,000 coaches over the years and have a passion to help coaches be a positive influence on the field.  New this year, Rijo will be offering free practice plans to each coach who attends through its mobile app (Rijo Athletics).  Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1t9EA592OB0e2lPXOpRVE2xlPDyXe8O1XGY0xz8lvk2A/edit#gid=0
  • NESLL is partnering with Baseball Positive to offer batting and pitching clinics on Sundays starting March 6.  Each clinic lasts 5 weeks and goes for 1 hour on Sunday.  These clinics cover fundamental batting and pitching techniques that every NESLL player should be taught.  This is strongly recommended for all coaches and assistant coaches.  NESLL is offsetting the cost of these clinics, which is $79 for a 5 week session.  Register here: https://northeast-seattle-little-league.korrio.com/programs/.  More information on the clinics can be found here:  http://www.baseballpositive.com/new-page-2/
