John Wooden once said, “A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.” It’s easy to lose sight of the incredible influence that we as coaches have in a young athlete’s life. There’s much worse things than losing a game, like losing a player who falls out of love with baseball. But players can learn, grow, and become the best versions of themselves as a direct result of their coaches.


We at Mint understand all too well the ill effect that a negative coach can have on our young men because we’re coaches. We’ve seen it. We’ve experienced it. It’s the reason that too many players no longer play the game. However, it’s also the reason why we aspire to show the great power and impact of positive coaching. We all remember that one coach who inspired us as a young athlete, and we all have the ability to do that for our kids too. That’s why Mint’s Member Portal is curated by coaches for coaches, complete with a comprehensive collection of videos, resources, and educational templates, along with access to coaches’ roundtables and 1-on-1’s with JA. If your goal is to empower your players and support them on their journey, Mint is here to support you on yours.
