I am a veteran teacher and travel baseball coach who subscribes to several training programs and simplified and combined most of them into a simplified, bottom up approach. I specialize in players 10-14
Jim and his son, JB, are a great teaching team. Just what my 11 year old son needs to advance in skill level. They are very knowledgeable about how best to train players that are ages 10-13, which is an age range that can be hard to find experienced coaches for. We are already seeing the results payoff at games with more confidence and more hits at the plate for our son. We look forward to continuing private training with JBW Baseball!
Jim is a great coach. Our son is 9 (almost 10) and plays travel ball. He really needed some guidance/reinforcement to ensure he has good batting technique and how to overcome his fear at the plate. Our son also wanted to work on his pitching and catching - so Jim worked with him on both of those positions as well - not only good mechanisms (e.g. for pitching) but also ways to move while catching, throws to 2nd, 3rd, etc. Jim's 13 yo son came with him, which I think was a nice addition - tips from a kid to a kid, and allowed my son to have a target to throw to while the coach could coach. Very pleased with Jim's coaching style - very patient, likes to assess a child's ability first and then refine, and very positive. We will definitely work with Jim again.
Whether we're pitching, hitting or fielding, I first diagnose what my client is doing right before making any suggestions or corrections. I believe in simplifying complex processes--like fielding, throwing, hitting and pitching--and building confidence by building off what a player already knows
