    Over the past three years, I've seen Dustin work with my godson, Logan, on all aspects of baseball - hitting, pitching, fielding - but where he had had the greatest impact is helping develop an honest love of baseball and a positive mental approach. Make no mistake, compared to other kids his age, Logan exhibits better fundamentals than most, due in large part to Dustin's efforts. But where many kids with professional guidance lose their joy of the game, Logan's has only grown under Dustin's tutelage. The game isn't a chore. Because of that, there exists a genuine commitment to improvement. I would recommend him to teach kids of all ages and skill levels.

    Dustin is fantastic and has been working with my son for three years now. The results on the field are really impressive, but more importantly my son is learning and loving the game. It really is a lot to learn, and a team coach just can’t give each child the time that is needed. If you are serious about helping your child get good at baseball, individual lessons are the way to go— and a teacher like Dustin, who played at such a high level and knows how to teach, is the smart choice. Thanks, Dustin!

    Thanks to Dustin Williams, my 8 year-old son is performing at a high level in competitive programs. If you are looking for an elite one-on-one coach— be it for hitting, fielding, pitching, baserunning, or all the mental aspects of baseball— there is no choice better than Dustin. What impresses me most about Dustin is not just his own baseball talent, or his having played pro in two countries. It is his ability to TEACH. To connect with kids— especially young ones. That is a highly critical and VERY RARE skill that not every instructor possesses. As we all know, getting through to the younger kids is a unique challenge. Another sign of an elite instructor is that he does NOT have a "cookie-cutter" approach, in which he makes every pupil do the same things. Rather, Dustin treats each and every athlete/student as unique; he analyzes what that particular kid needs, and then tailors a specific program for that client. This, I believe, is why Dustin gets such strong RESULTS. By paying close attention to his lessons with my son, I also understand the game of baseball and all its mechanics better than ever before. Ultimately, for anyone of any age who wants to learn and improve— especially younger children— I could not recommend someone more than Dustin Williams. I also find dependability and punctuality to be very important, as often instructors cancel or delay lessons, even at the last minute. Dustin is always prompt and can be counted upon. He will even go the extra mile to analyze game video of my son to prepare specific drills for him. I feel compelled to give credit where it is due and acknowledge such a talented teacher, which is why I am writing this— yet part of me thinks I am letting out a huge secret when it comes to this outstanding instructor! Dustin, thanks so much. Find a slot for us next week, please!

    Coach Dustin is the perfect balance of mastering skills and having fun at the same time. My 8-year old and 5-year old sons love getting lessons from him, and always look forward to their meetings. Dustin sees beyond their potential and expects excellence, but also reminds them to have fun. He has a keen baseball sense that is amazing, but it is his rapport with our boys that is so impressive. He has a wealth of knowledge with all aspects of baseball, and my boys love having their “player to player” talks with him. He is incredibly knowledgeable on skills and techniques, but also reminds the boys about developing good work habits/ethics. He’s very patient and comes up with creative ways to teach baseball. We feel very lucky to have met him.

How did you get started teaching?

Growing up I didn't have a lot of proper coaching so I would record my own videos of big league players hitting in order to analyze their swing as well as study YouTube videos to compare their swing to mine. Once I graduated high school I promised myself that I would get as far as I could in baseball in order to seek and gain knowledge that I could then pass on to youth players, high school players, college players, pro players, adult league players etc. with the will to learn the game of baseball. It went from studying videos to playing with ex big leaguers and current big leaguers to actually listening to hitting coaches and players talk about what works for them and other players.
