        Many times a coach or a team will have areas of concern and will need an experts help. Mike will come to a scheduled team practice or provide a private lesson created on reshaping a team trouble spot. Some examples of team instruction might be focusing strictly on the pitching staff, getting them all learning the same basic mechanics and skills needed for their team. Other instruction might be to help coaches design new team drills to maximize their practices. Any skill can be isolatede for instruction or a general team lesson could be designed to make a team perform better on the field.        Team Instruction clinics are valuable to both players and coaches, everyone gets involved. Coaches will be asked to teach their players under the supervision of Mike Scott. Practices are created to bring all players and coaches together. Everyone is busy learning which produces team chemistry and a team philisophy as well as improving team skills.

        Coaches Clinics are very popular among the Little League programs. These clinics are designed to get the coaches performing the same basic fundamentals as their kids will encounter during practices and games. It is important for coaches to see instruction from the players point of view, this way they get a better understanding of the pressure, nervousness, and confusing communication that can be found in most young players.         Coaches Clinics are also given to coaches entering the full sized field. The coaches are still involved in the drills and instruction but here they get a further education of the new rules and strategic differences from the small field. Clinics can also be personalized for any age or specific needs of the league. Most of these clinics are scheduled indoors before the season begins, this gives the coaches a chance to take notes and prepare for their season.
