WP Baseball Coaches
Finding the right coach for your player can be a daunting task. At WP Baseball we have put together a team of professional coaches who have dedicated their lives to coaching young ball players. This is how they make a living, not something they do on the side for fun! Each of our coaches has unique experience as both a player and a coach and has also identified their area of expertise. Upon meeting your player and completing a player evaluation, Coach WIlson will make some recommendations to help your player achieve their baseball goals by taking an honest look at their current measurables and what areas they most need to improve to reach these goals. Coach Wilson will also help your player develop attainable goals for training and discuss good practice habits. Below is a list of our coaches with their biographies and a brief description of their coaching theory and methods.
