Professional, Dedicated, Honest, Compassionate, Demands effort, Detail-Oriented. Understands Individual Athletic Potential, Extremely Committed to Developing Athletes by Utilizing various Tools & Methods Enhancing Performance - His overall Focus & Ideology is refreshing with-in the baseball coaching community. As an MLB writer & filmmaker, Masters in Sports Science (ACSM)- I saw "more" than a coach but a "expert" at his craft. To have the opportunity for best the possible training, I would recommend every pitcher train with Rick. After seeing his unique training strategies & results, in a short amount of time, the improvement in my son's pitching ability, I have recommended Rick to many (Elite Youth-Collegiate & even Pro players)- Whatever level your at, you'll be surprised how much you "Don't" know after experiencing training with Rick Wolfer. Play Hard or Go Home :-)
Rick Wolfer is very patient and extremely professional. He doesn't watch time during lessons, he breaks down everything to the simplest way. I would give him 10 out of 10b
Rick has not only coached my twin boys since they were 10 but he has been a great mentor as well as a friend. He is a huge advocate for arm care and strength and conditioning. He is a coach that really cares about the whole player, mind, body and spirit. He takes the time to send training videos for practicing in between lessons. He also encourages his players to send him their game videos to review their progress. You know he is something special when his players come back from college to get a couple of workouts in with him.
Wolfer has a deep understanding of pitching mechanics, when it comes to his lessons, he is able to figure out exactly what should be improved in order to make you the ball player you strive to be. My fastball jumped 8 mph within weeks of his training. It wasn’t just my fastball speed that began to improve, it was also location and consistency. I remember the first time I met Wolfer, he wanted to make sure I was serious about the game, he wanted to make sure I was passionate, he wanted to analyze first where I was in the mental game of baseball, so he could then improve my game as a whole. Wolfer is a people person, who is more passionate about the game than any other pitching coach I know. Coach Wolfer doesn’t just teach mechanics... he teaches ballers how to become a student of the game. He is constantly sending videos of pitching mechanics that may help his students better understand their current mechanical error, or how to improve their mental game. A truly inspiring coach!
