Give your children a head start on the field and off with The Hometown All Stars books
It all starts with a bedtime story!
As a coach, I see kids showing up at their first practice not knowing what home plate is. They don’t even know which direction to run. The Hometown All Stars series helps children learn beginning sports skills with real-life coaching techniques, combined with an educational and FUN storyline. The books encourage kids to get out of the house and get moving, giving them (and their parents) the tools to do so with confidence. Besides the obvious benefits of physical activity, The Hometown All Stars series includes important concepts, like sportsmanship, leadership, playing by the rules, motivation, winning and losing, teamwork, and strategy, helping to re-enforce many important life lessons.
