Coach & Player Development

Pacific Little League (PLL) is deeply committed to being a developmental league. One key aspect of most sporting activities is winning. Even if the scores do not matter, even five year old kids will consistently ask their coach, "who won?"

Final scores are not our primary goal, but rather focusing our attention on "high success". As a league, PLL "wins" when we:

  • Maintain environments (games and practices) where children can win or lose, succeed and fail, and maintain self esteem, integrity, and joy.
  • Provide opportunities for kids to develop baseball skills (physical and mental) which are appropriate for their age.
  • Seek that every child's team experience at PLL is positive. Ultimately, we want kids to have such a positive experience that they look forward to playing another year.
  • Equip adult volunteers (coaches and beyond) to joyfully serve and have a positive experience investing time in the development of our children and community.

PLL pursues this commitment by equipping Coaches, Parents, and Players to join us in creating an environment which is positive and healthy for the development of children.

  • Coaches- First and foremost, coaches create and guard the environment of their teams. Additionally, they commit time to help players develop to their potential and playing ability. Though obviously a high calling for a volunteer position, we are committed to equipping and supporting our coaches toward success.
  • Parents- We desire to support parents in their unique role and provide quality team dynamics for you to "release" your child into for their baseball continued development. We love working with parents who volunteer as a coach or assistant team coach. Ultimately we encourage all PLL parents to encourage the players on your team and play that role for your team to its fullest.
  • Players- Every child is different. They all come with different athletic abilities, drive, and discipline. It is our desire that kids will be able to continue developing solid skills year after year. As a youth recreation league, we do not expect to develop every child to be an All-Star player. We are committed to helping all players advance in self confidence and skills, however the final outcome includes the drive of each child, commitment, and support of the family, and athletic ability.

We are very proud of the community which is Pacific Little League. We believe it is one of the best programs in our state and are committed to learning and being more intentional in our support of families and equipping of our kids.

Thank you for your partnership in this great adventure!
