Coaching & Training Resources

PONY Baseball has partnered with Dugout Captain to provide assistance to coaches in practice planning, drill selection and workout planning.  This is free to all Newcastle Coaches!

Pony Baseball's objective and the mission of Dugout Captain is to ensure that baseball is fun for our participants by supporting a positive, safe, and developmental environment for ballplayers to grow as athletes and individuals. Dugout Captain helps coaches do that through drill videos, practice plans, and training lessons, all built upon the philosophy that we can train champions and prepare them for the big leagues, while also ensuring that they have a smile on their face.

It is our belief that the pressures, experiences, and adversities faced through sport teach life skills and character traits that will help players throughout their lives.  This program, which normally costs leagues hundreds or thousands of dollars is free to PONY leagues. Newcastle Coaches can sign-up for their account here: Dugout Captain
