Friends from high school in Washington, DC, and college roommates at Brown University, Dan and Brendan are joining forces to provide a platform for all parents to easily coach their kids. We won’t promise 90mph fastballs, 200 yard pitching wedges, or the ability to bend a goal kick 15 yards. We’re huge believers in dreaming big, but honestly, how many athletes under the age of 12 can actually identify with those goals in their day-to-day sports activities?
What we can promise is an easy to navigate site that will provide simple yet effective and powerful drills, techniques, and methods that have been proven to help parents become better coaches while their kids have fun improving their skills.
How do we know our methods work?
Simply put: we’ve spent more hours coaching young athletes than almost anyone else alive. By choice, we don’t coach in college, professionally, or even at the high school level. We’ve made our careers in under 12 year olds arena, and want to share what we know with parents who are motivated to provide their kids with best possible coaching material. After 15 years working exclusively with youth baseball players, we know how they think, the common mistakes and why, and how to best prepare them mentally and physically for their future – both on and off the field.
