The Steel Sports Coaching System guides how to coach for maximum positive impact: winning on the field and in life. Achieving success is more than winning championships, and that’s why our coaches play a valuable role in building character and teaching life lessons along with the Xs and Os. Your child will have a positive and fun experience while developing as an athlete and as a person through the Steel Sports Coaching System.
BUILDING CHARACTER &
TEACHING LIFE LESSONS
OUR UNIQUE APPROACH
Our Kids First Philosophy
We put kids first meaning their rights and interests are our foremost concern. We also believe our athletes are kids first and athletes second, and they need the opportunity to be kids first before emerging into adulthood.
Teaching Life Lessons Through Sports
Sports is an incredible vehicle to build character, mold future leaders and teach life lessons. The Steel Sports Coaching System teaches kids there is much more to gain from sports than winning and losing.
THE LASORDA WAY
POSITIVITY & FUN
Baseball legend and Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda was the inspiration behind developing the Steel Sports Coaching System. Coaching “The Lasorda Way” is Tommy’s belief in providing kids a positive and fun environment, an essential part of keeping them in sports so they can gain the character traits and life lessons that will make them successful in all walks of life. Tommy’s teachings of how to be part of a team and playing for the name on the front of the jersey are engrained in the Steel Sports Coaching System.
