"The decline in enrollment numbers for youth baseball is alarming. To think kids will miss out on all of the wonderful things baseball teaches including teamwork, dedication, striving to reach a common goal, keeping your body strong and fit, etc. has inspired me to do my part to put a halt to this decline. That is why I started Get Coached. Sandlot Sports was my first project and I took it to a level that most couldn’t foresee happening. But I wanted more and I wanted a bigger audience, so 2017 brought forth change."
- Russ Cohen, President
Our mission at Get Coached is to provide quality baseball instruction at the most critical time in a players development.
HITTING, PITCHING, FIELDING & CATCHING
Hitting or pitching instructors are a dime a dozen. But if you want a company that offers any type of baseball instruction in an organized, efficient way, Get Coached is the only choice. And most importantly, WE WILL COME TO YOU! While we still offer clinics and practices out of a few convenient, designated facilities, we are also able to come to YOUR facility or field and provide exactly what you need. You get excellent instruction wherever you train.
GC Catching Academy is designed to give catchers an all around approach to getting better. Classes will consist of a flexibility and lower half strength program as well as learning techniques in all areas of catching, most importantly stances, and receiving, blocking, and throwing. Classes give players a chance to learn on a weekly basis, but most importantly to get high volume repetitions that allow them to take what they have learned and apply it. Repetitions allow catchers to feel comfortable behind the plate and trust the work they have put in. Until we have reached a level comfort behind the plate, we cannot expect the best from ourselves as SHUT DOWN catchers and, more importantly, as LEADERS!
