About this pro

My Coaching Experience includes all age ranges from 4 to Adult.  I am a High School Coach, as well as a player/coach for the semi pro team I play with in the AUBL in Miami. I have my Coaching Cert from the State of Florida Dept of Education to teach/coach kids K-12.  I can cover a wide range of ages and levels of play. I prefer motivated individuals that really want to improve their game.  With the younger kids...this is sometimes hard to find, however. This is where i try to make it as fun as possible, while learning the basic fundamentals of the game.  I specialize in Batting, Pitching, Catching, and Infield.  I pride myself on helping players in slumps and working on the mental aspects of the game as well. 

Im known as an Individual Skills and Development Coach.  

I Can Coach Teams, Groups, or Individuals.  If you have pitcher/catcher combos, outfielders, or middle infielders that play together...group sessions are encouraged.  If you are in search of a fresh point of view or a different way of looking at things, you've found it.  

First Session is an evaluation, mixed with drills and game time situations to begin improving right from the start.  A discussion with the parents/players will help customize the session plan(s) to the individuals certain needs and goals.  From there we progress aggressively into catered training that utilizes traditional and non-traditional practices per individual.  I prefer to not waste time and get right to the point in our sessions.

TRAVEL:  Yes, but charge normal mileage rate of .55 per mile.

I have 3 fields that I train at that I dont charge to travel to.  

All located on Miami Beach from South Beach to North Shore.

BOOKINGS:  you must pay half up front to reserve your spot/reservation for training.  I primarly use Venmo App for payments.  This also serves as a cancelation fee if clients dont show up to an appoinment.  Non refundable.

PRICE: 60$ for 60 or 90min session.  Same price no matter what.

What I enjoy the most is watching the student(s) learn and grow with the game.  Getting a chance to teach young people not only about baseball, but also about life..is the most rewarding.  Lessons such as: how to overcome defeat, how to win with gratitude, and lose with honor.  Learning from our mistakes, and understanding how to turn failure into success. One of my favorite quotes is: ..."there is no losing, there is only winning, and learning."
