More About Coach Jason

I am a former professional baseball player in the Minnesota Twins organization. I am a firm believer that hard work and determination are the most important factors in success, whether it be athletics or otherwise. I bring this philosophy to my game and to the athletes I coach.

I have experience coaching middle and high school aged athletes, and this age group gives me the greatest opportunity to impart real, immediate, and positive change. I preach a natural, organic approach to the game that allows the athlete to learn not only from me but also from himself. I specialize in offensive and defensive skills. My goal is to make the athlete a smart, competitive, and focused baseball player that will excel beyond the competition.

Good coach

Jason did a great job with my two boys. We are looking forward to our next session.

Coach Jason is great! Kayson can't wait for his next session.

Coach Jason is an excellent coach, he worked with my son to fix his swing, He and Jason where on the same page, really knows how to communicate with the athlete to get them to understand what he is seeing and what needs to be done, after the session was over, my son wanted more, and I can attest that what I saw in the cage and how fast he corrected the swing was just outstanding, so we are now regular clients with Jason and we are excited to see how much more development he can get out of Caleb. If you are looking for a great coach look no further, you will be very pleased.

Coach Jason was great coaching my 7 year old son. He picked up on some things right away that I had been trying to fix myself, but I didn't have the tools or requisite knowledge to do so. Jason did a great job of communicating the fixes to my son in a way that he understood and could apply. I love that he teaches the mental side of hitting and doesn't not try to over complicate the swing process. We'll definitely be headed back for more sessions. My son loved it and is already asking when we can get back to work.

Jason did a great job with my son.

Jason has done a very good job of breaking down my son's (7) swing and correcting flaws and creating a plan to establish a repetitive stance and swing.

He also relates the concepts in clear and concise language with visual examples for a young player to understand.

Coach Jason has been nothing less than excellent. He is very patient and great at what he does. My son enjoys him very much. My son seems to understand very well his coaching techniques. I would recommend him to anyone. He is awesome!!!

Jason is a great coach! He was extremely patient with our 7 yr old who is transitioning from t-ball to coach pitch. We saw a huge improvement in his batting in just one session. Our son had a blast and is excited for his next session.

Coach Jason is the perfect Coach for my son. My son over thinks the game of baseball and Coach Jason explained the mental side of the game and how to breath and relax and visualize right centerfield. It worked and my son has improved in just one lesson. Coach Jason also worked on some drills and advised him on his pitching that are safe techniques for his age.

Thank you so much!

Great session. Jason is patient even when my son is challenging him and comes prepared with great ideas.

Coach Jason was absolutely amazing. He took the time to first listen to us and walked us through what he can do and how he can help. Listened to my son's goals toward baseball and told us how, with discipline and guidance he can do it. Coach Jason, for it being our first visit left a lasting impression and thank you so much, my son learned alot just the first visit, so I can only imagine where coach Jason can take him with each session. Shows true character when you can take home a lasting impression the first visit.

Coach Jason was real patient with my 7yr son. After one session I saw a quick improvement and saw what he was doing wrong as my son is coming up from t-ball to coach pitch . My son really had fun and wants to go back tomorrow . I see my son is happy and has more confident . We'll continue to going to Coach Jason . If you can pick a coach he's the man . Again thanks a lot

We were lucky enough to work with Coach Jason for 6 sessions. He is so patient and skilled with small children; we were so impressed with how much improvement we saw in our 5 year old son in such a short amount of time. Our son really took to Coach Jason and stayed focused and interested for hour long sessions at a time (which is amazing for our very active son). I would recommend Coach Jason to anyone I could - he is a great coach with a real plan and theory for practicing baseball - and a great person. We will miss working with him as he heads off for spring training!!!

Jason is an excellent coach. He's very patient and has an amazing ability to engage a child for an hour long session. We booked for an hour each lesson and my son was moving the entire time (yet surprised when the sessions would end). In other words, time seemed to fly for him when he was with Jason.

Jason had my son running through different drills at each lesson, though still covering all of the basics. My son improved exponentially in terms of his focus and ability due to his lessons with Jason. Jason was able to teach my son different cues to remember when batting, pitching, etc. that really seemed to resonate vs. just going through the motions of baseball basics.

For point of reference, my son is 9 years old and has played tee-ball (4,5) and coach-pitch baseball (6, 7, 8). We've tried several other coaches through Baseball USA over the years and as recently as this Fall and I feel that my child responded 10x better to Jason. He was sad for his lessons to end due to the coach's spring training schedule.

I would 100% recommend this coach. If your child is old enough to truly focus on each lesson, they should make great strides each time with him as your coach.

We took our son for an evaluation with Coach Jason and was very impressed with Coach Jason. His attention to detail is incredible. I loved the way he studied my sons swing and analyed his mechanics. My son loved the way Coach explained what he needed to change and really felt a connection to coach in his very first session. We have hit with Coach Jason over the last 6 weeks and have seen a complete change into sons swing and approach to the game. What he has struggled with over the last 2 years and other coaches didn't recognize or know how to fix Jason did in these short 6 weeks! It has been a pleasure getting to know you and I can't thank you enough for the work and attention you have shown Tracy. We will be in touch and if we could give you more than 5 stars we would give you 5 million! You are awesome!

Coach Jason is nothing shy of amazing. He did things in a short period of time that my son's coaches and I couldn't do in 4 years. He's a completely new player and my son absolutely loves him. If your thinking about hiring a coach, look no further!

Jason is a fantastic coach. I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about the game of baseball. He has excellent knowledge and the skills to communicate them to the player. My son is an advanced high school age player. They worked in all the main areas of batting, fielding and even pitching though my son is not a pitcher. His opinion was that Jason’s coaching was some of the most useful he had received to date. I can definitely see the results in the batting.
He provides very good value for money.
As a parent, I really appreciated the detailed and thoughtful feedback Jason provided at the end of each session and at the end of the series of sessions I booked. The next time we are back in the USA we will be seeking out Jason for more coaching.

Jason is a very committed athlete and baseball player. He has an excellent work ethic and is very easy to get along with. His baseball skills are excellent. He works very well with kids and teenagers. Jason is very knowledgeable about the game.

In just one session with my sons, he provided very good observations and adjustments to improve their throwing and hitting. I would definitely recommend him to others.
