About this pro

I am a U.S. special operations veteran and former collegiate baseball player. I played at the Division 1 level at Saint Joseph's University prior to enlisting in the Army and becoming an Airborne Ranger. I have a passion for teaching  both fundamental and advanced baseball methods while simultaneously encorporating mental toughness and leadership lessons learned through military training and experience. 

My LinkedIn profile can be found at: https://www.linkedin.com/in/douglass-licitra/

I specialize in hitting, infield, and baserunning technique with players ranging anywhere from little league to professional skill level. The facility that we will train at is state-of-the-art and will provide a great experience for both player and parent(s). I believe that it is important that all clients have tangible goals in order to aid in the player development process. I look forward to aiding all players achieve their fullest potential both on and off of the baseball field!

    Doug coached my son in travel ball this summer. In the short time he worked with my son I noticed a change in his approach to the game as well as how he grew as a young man off the field. I believe Doug’s work ethic had a large part in my sons growth this summer and I would highly recommend him to parent who wants there child to grow both on and off the field. An experience I’m sure this years travel team will always remember him.

    I liked that Coach Doug did not sugarcoat anything. He is straight to the point, and gives clear directions. He is supportive and pushes athletes to their full potential. His energy is infectious and is a true leader. Overall, Coach Doug is a very good coach and understands the limits when coaching an player.

  • Dylan Desiderio

    Coach Doug taught the fundamentals of baseball as well as the value of work ethic on the next level. He was also a lot of fun to work with and I learned a lot.

  • Blaise Martinez

    Doug was my assistant coach for our 16u team, he was the best assistant coach I have had since I started coaching 7 years ago. He was very helpful with organizing the team schedule and managing communication from coaches to players and coaches to parents. He was a fan favorite with the players and parents. He also brought a very effective practice plans that help developed sports specific skills, team building , and overall great team atmosphere. There’s much more Doug did, overall he’s going to impact any player who he coaches, and he will bring the best out of them.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

The most important aspect of a first session with a new client is two-fold. 1) Get acquainted with each other. Learning environments are most productive when both teacher and student are relaxed and understand each other's goals for the process. 2) Observational. Players are not going to become more talented simply after one training session. I will observe the current skill level and technique of the player prior to correcting or drastically altering anything. Improvement is a process!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

From an academic standpoint, I have a Master's degree from Georgetown University in Sports Industry Management.

Athletically, I played collegiate baseball at the Division 1 level at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA. I have also been employed as a baseball coach and instructor by numerous organizations. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
