This clinic is designed for the coaches of Youth Baseball Programs in Little League, Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken, among others, who bring great excitement and enthusiasm to coaching kids but need the tools to teach the game properly. Our clinic will energize your coaches by showing them simple and time-proven techniques to help teach the fundamentals of the game that coaches can then share with their players. This results in more enthusiastic, efficient and productive practices for coaches and improved performance of the players.

Volunteer coaches with great energy and positive intentions will benefit from experiencing time proven expertise to help make the youth baseball experience a positive one for all. Teaching the game properly will make coaching fun and more importantly benefit the young players under their leadership.

What prior attendees had to say about this program:

"I thought this clinic was great. Great price as well! Kevin was professional and on time. I think the best part of the clinic was that it was kept simple and short. I also loved that the coaches actually had to participate with the drills. Our kids in Town will benefit greatly from our coaches attending this 2 hour clinic. I believe we were able to get many more coaches there because we were not asking them to give up a whole day!!"
Steve Talbot
President, Dracut Baseball Association

"The Sweet Swing "Coach the Coach" clinic was one of the highlights of the Hingham Little League Season for over 80 coaches who attended. Every coach who attended provided rave reviews about Kevin's passion for coaching and the energy level he maintained during the 2 hour interactive coaching clinic. The clinic was so well received by coaches that we already have Kevin on the calendar for next year and will be asking Kevin to provide skill sessions to our players next year."
-Matt Elio (Hingham Little League Coaching Coordinator)

"Sweet Swing has been the core of Newton South East youth baseball training for many years. Each spring and fall Kevin O’Brien brings his Sweet Swing Coach the Coach clinic which provides both our veteran and our new coaches with the tools they need to run an affective practice where the players are having fun learning to master the fundamentals while developing the advance skills needed for success, reaching their highest potential. Sweet Swing coaches always arrive with energy and an infectious enthusiasm that makes the clinics fun and inspirational. Never a dull moment. Proof is that year after year our veteran coaches return to the clinics to be recharged, reminded of what they already know and to pick up new drills and techniques. Sweet Swing sets the pace and ignites our teams."
Kevin G. Flannery
Newton (MA) SouthEast Little League – VP of Baseball

"Kevin O'Brien brings an excitement that is truly contagious and inspiring. The energy that he brought to the clinic was amazing. All of the participants came out feeling good about what we learned and how to teach it. He filled in all the holes in what we thought we knew and broke it down into teachable examples and drills. Even someone like myself who'd been coaching children for over 30 years was truly inspired and re-energized and frankly, I learned more than I care to admit. We are seeing the results in the children that we teach in less than a year. Truly an amazing man!"
