I am able to pass on my knowledge of baseball to each individual I work with in an effective manner, yet keep it enjoyable so they want to come back for more. I will hel p your athlete reach their goals by teaching them not only "How?" but "Why?" to ensure the student is prepared in all aspects of the game and has a better understanding of what they are learning.

I am meant to work with kids. I build off the energy and enthusiam that each unique individual brings to the table. I thrive off helping kids improve their fundamentals and mechanics as well as setting a positive example by being a good role model for them.
Coach Trey is awesome with kids he has excellent baseball knowledge.
The overall approach to coaching. They are always very patient balanced with a firm understanding of the sport. Also, they have an unique ability to focus on the positive while improving on the deficiencies of the athletes that the athletes all seem to respond to quickly.
Trey Capers is very good at communicating his baseball knowledge to kids. I've seen alot of baseball guys with a ton of knowledge and experience but who can't effectively teach it to youngsters. Trey has the knowledge and a unique ability with kids.
I bought my son to Trey when he started playing baseball this past spring, which was his first season ever. Since he has been working with Trey he is a totally different player, you cannot tell that this is his second season of baseball. He is hitting better, fielding better and most of all his confidence is out of this world. Trey has a lot of patience and he knows how to get through to the kids. Best coach my son has had to date.
I would first have the player go through the motion a few times to really get a glimpse of what he is doing incorrectly as well as what he is doing right. Give him constructive criticism on what he is doing wrong followed up with positive compliments with what he is doing well. Alot of times, there is going to be multiple things wrong with a players mechanics. I will make them aware of these imperfections but tell them only to really focus on 1 maybe two things at a time(you cant fix multiple things at one time, it is a process) and let them know that they will not fix them, "just like that" and that it takes "correct" repetition and being coachable. I like to incorporate drills during a lesson to fixate on certain habits that the student may have. I do like to video on my phone in order for the player to visually see and go over there mechanics in slow motion to point out certain specifics. I like to make the lesson as "gamelike" as possible because sports isn't just about drills. It takes situational, mental, and mechanical understanding to get the maximum potential out of the player.
