Be A Better Catching Coach

Coach Todd is going to teach you everything you need to know about the fundamental skills performed by catchers of all skill and experience levels.

He will cover, in detail, the fundamentals of proper stances utilized by catchers, receiving technique, throwing mechanics and blocking form.  As well as all of the "specialty plays" performed by catchers including tag plays, force plays, bunt plays, pop ups and retrieving wild pitches. 

Improve the performance and success of your catchers

The tips, drills, exercises and techniques Coach Todd teaches will help your catchers block everything, understand what "mitt magic" is and how to do it along with helping develop quick hands, quick feet and arm strength to maximize their throwing success along with improving their performance during specialty plays which are rarely taught.

Understand how to select the player you want to catch for your team

There are important characteristics a player needs in order to be a successful catcher.  Coach Todd will cover in detail what tools and personality traits to look for when deciding who to put behind the plate for your team.

Yes, I want to work with Coach Todd online, and help my catchers be the best they can be!

Happy parent and catcher...

My son attended your camp in November and something you said really hit home. He has always been a hard working kid when working with coaches and instructors, but rarely took the initiative to work on stuff on his own. You told the boys to try to spend at least an hour a day working on something "baseball" related, if they really wanted to see huge improvements. Well, he took that to heart and made it a point to get his work in everyday. As a parent it is great to see that kind of work ethic. For him it is paying off.

While he sees the payoff now in the sport, we as parents see a huge life lesson...hard work, perseverance, and dedication pays off.

Thanks for being a role model with great advice for these younger guys! Keep up the great work.
