31 - Butch Chaffin; Cookesville HS (TN) "Guardian of the Game"

Better Men, Better Ballplayers

Bio Current HC at Cookeville HS in Cookeville, TN. 34 years in baseball Has spent the last 14 years with USA Baseball Spent 4 years as an assistant coach at Tennessee Tech 3 years was a special assignment scout for the Kansas City Royals National speaker/clinician Truth spreader of the game Just a dude!!! Preacher of the game Show notes I yearned for consistency  “Rebuilding year” insults everyone in your program We are going to work as hard as we can, we will find that line, and then work a little harder I am going to try and find a way to get everyone in the game except the next game starter The other team is just feedback to see if what we are doing is working or not If you are talking development, and about development, then your seniors as coaches! You cannot rush athleticism.  The secret sauce to development is maturity. We push maturity A LOT! Maturity is a decision.Make your bed When you go in the classroom you be respectful When you get done with lunch throw trash away Raise your hand and be responsible Teaching manners Best gauge of your culture is behavior Players only offer words of encouragement, not criticism Mature kids learn faster, so athletically they will take off The elite guys loved being coach!! No wasted reps, and guys who make national teams don’t waste reps. They don’t make them accidentally If you don’t have success, how will you recover? Recover after the strikeout.  Parent manual given to my parents at first meeting Need to be ok with people not liking you and being on your side Systematic approach to how we develop Make it more than an activityAs a coach I can’t strike out  Simple is a skill chaffinb1@pcsstn.com Great follow on twitter (when he gets it figured out) @Gawbage29 It's not about me, but it is about me leave fingerprints all over the place Guardian of the game!

We get a lot of kids whose parents use to carry their bags to games, so we want to mentally challenge kids.  If you’re a coach, and you aren’t learning about your guys every day, you're not coaching.Your leaders have to be the guys that say things. He has to tell it like it is. We don't have rules. We have standards that you need you need to live up to.
