2017 CCLL Intermediate House Team
- Raj Roychoudhury
- 6 years experience coaching in CCLL, including experience with current 13 year-olds, 6 years of relationships and training experience with local professional baseball trainers
- Additional youth coaching experience – 6 years soccer and 5 years basketball
- Positive coaching alliance certified
Our goals are to (1) teach the positive life lessons that best come from sports (positive attitude, desire to be better, work ethic, focus, being self-motivated/drive) that will (2) help them master the baseball skills to compete at a high level. So, regardless of their skill level now, we can help (3) increase their confidence in themselves and (4) increase their love for sports (75-80% of kids drop out of sports entirely by age 15, including those that are in travel ball and more intense leagues). The final goal (5) is to win (which will happen a lot if we do 1-4 correctly) but by putting that as the final goal, we avoid the negative "win-at-all-costs" influences that limit our kids' definition of success, model bad behavior, hurt teamwork and shake a player's confidence by focusing too much on the outcome vs. the process of working to be their best.
