Baseball has been a huge part of my life ever since I was 4 years old. I have been providing skill lessons since 2016 with my main goal for my clients being to reach their full potential in all aspects of baseball. I have experience giving lessons to all kinds of skills, such as hitting, pitching, fielding, baserunning, and catching.
My experiences have been great so far with many of my clients seeing huge improvements in their game. I have worked with clients on the Northwest side of Chicago and on the Northshore (Northfield, Winnetka, Highland Park, Deerfield, Libertyville, Lake Forest, and Mundelein).
I graduated from Niles West High School in 2012, where I played 4 years of baseball (3 on varsity); I was an All-Conference selection in 2011 and 2012 as a 3rd baseman/Pitcher. Shortly after high school, I played collegiate baseball at North Park University in Chicago, Illinois where I pitched for 4 years; during my 4 years, I started in 28 games with 15 wins, 207 innings pitched, and 109 total strikeouts; I was also a 2nd Team All-Conference Selection in 2016, and in 2015 was ranked nationally in division 3 baseball in "Walks Allowed Per Nine Innings" (4th) and "Strikeout-to-Walk Ratio" (6th).
Upon graduating in 2016, I have been a head coach for New Trier Feeder baseball at the 14U level for 2 years, and just recently was an assistant pitching coach at North Park University for the 2019 season. I also have high school baseball coaching experience at Slammers Baseball Academy in Lake Forest where I coach over the summer. I am currently an elementary physical education teacher in Des Plaines.
What I enjoy most about the work that I do is seeing the progress happen. I enjoy seeing how my students have developed over the course of various lessons; it goes to show that they have really taken their training seriously and that they are getting something out of their experience with me.
Over the years I have worked with Jason personally and I have nothing but amazing experiences on the field. He is able to pinpoint exactly what I needed to work on to get my swing correctly through the zone. Hats off to Jason! Definitely recommended!!
My typical process would be starting out with getting to know them as well as learning what their strengths and weaknesses are. I will then use the time to work with them and assess what I see that they might need extra work on.
I have been an instructor and coach through New Trier Feeder Baseball and Illinois Baseball Academy since 2016.
I also have experience doing baseball strength training, lessons, and coaching through Slammers Baseball Academy since 2017.
