Some coaches use certificates on a regular basis to motivate players;
other coaches use certificates, instead of trophies, at the end
of the season.

There is an award certificate in PowerPoint you can download from
examples). Almost everything on it can be modified to suit the
team or player.
The head coach and assistant coach(es) sign the certificate and
give it to the team captain (for that game) along with a new game
ball signed with their name, team name, number, and date of game.(If
you plan ahead, you may award a different player at each game).
To create certificates for future games, change the date on the
computer and then open the file. It will then automatically fill
in that date on the certificate.
I thought about buying some gold seals to put in place of the one
on the certificate but I ended up not doing that.
Hope this helps the other coaches.
Thanks, Coach Bruce

Coach Walker added -----based on my years of experience
and drawing from the information I have received
over the years---------as best I can remember.
- Best team leader
- Best team member
- Best team attitude
- Best team builder
- Best team motivation
- Best team worker
- Best team runner
- Best team batter
- Best team player-coach
- Best team player
- Best team base player
- Best team fielder
- Best team Catcher
- Best team first base
- Best team second base
- Best team third base
- Best team pitcher
- Best team influence
- Best team influence in the dugout
- Best team influence on the field
Or start the title with "Most improved" and the list
would go something like this;
- Most improved team leader
- Most improved team member
- Most improved team attitude
and so on-------I think you get the idea
Pick what you like from all these suggestions.
Of course put the team name and year on all certificates.
