More About Me

I have 15 years playing experience as a pitcher, catcher and outfielder. I have been a pitching instruction mechanics coach for youth to adult aged players for 2 years and for a 10 yr old select team and a 12 yr. old elite level tournament team. I have a simple balanced approach. ABC Hitting approach taught by professional baseball player Reggie Sanders, which is easy approach to teaching youth baseball players the right mechanics involved in swinging a bat. I feel with my pitching experience and knowledge of specific pitching drills I can increase velocity, control and simplify a pitching delivery. Reduce strikeouts at the plate and increase contact and hits for power.

I have successfully coached a 10 year old select baseball team and assisted in coaching an elite 12 yr old select and premier tournament team in the Cypress area. I have 15 years playing experience playing baseball in the Houston area as a pitcher, catcher and outfielder. I helped run an open infield practice every Friday for youth-high school students in which we hit ground balls and gave fielding instruction on defense. As a student of the game I have successfully helped many youth ballplayers in improving their playing skills offensively and defensively.

Each session starts with an evaluation of the players assets and skills, from there I like to focus on areas of improvement and correcting any flaws or mechanics that may be hindering success. I value giving positive reinforcement and explain why a certain thing is done a certain way. Every player is different and I feel should have their own comfortable way of doing things. Be it, fielding, hitting or pitching I let the player dictate the session and we perform repetitions and practice the optimal way to receive the best results.

Client Reviews

Justin has covered batting and fielding skills with my 10 yr old and we are seeing improvement from the lessons. He has been patient and encouraging and always spends the extra time to make sure my son is learning the new skill.

I would absolutely recommend Coach Justin to anyone looking for help to improve or fine tune their skills. By the end of our first session, my son was sweating profusely (he worked him hard!) and we already saw improvements in batting and fielding through the tips and drills provided by Coach Justin. Thank you!

Justin has been fantastic with my 6 year old son. He is patient but keeps my son focused (not an easy task). After four sessions I have seen improvement in my son's swing (dramatic), fielding and throwing. Most importantly, my son "chooses" to go and practice -- and enjoys it.

We had a great first session with my son who is 6. Coach Justin has a ton of energy and relates well to kids.

My son is 6. I was a bit concerned that he could be too young for instruction. Now thinking it was a good decision. Coach Justin does a great job of keeping my child focused. He understands the physics of a baseball swing and conveys it well. Definitely happy to have found him.

We love Coach Justin!! He is very knowledgeable and works well with my young son. He has many unique drills to help build skill and confidence while being encouraging and keeping the lesson fun. I've seen my son grow by leaps and bounds as a batter and fielder as a result of our lessons! I would recommend Coach Justin to anyone!!

Saw a significant improvement in my son's swing after just one session. Son really enjoyed working with Justin. Looking forward to future sessions.

Coach Justin is a great coach who really relates to the kids well and has great phrases that they relate well too that communicate the concepts and give them easy keys to remember his techniques. He is pushes the kids along in a very positive manner that gets results very quickly and leaves the kids super pumped up after their lessons.

Great 1st session!

Coach Justin has trained my twin 14 year old boys on several occasions this past year. His lesions are always helpful, educational and are sure to go a long way to help both my sons make their high school baseball team next year. After watching how Coach has helped to dramatically improve my son's game, I would definitely recommend Coach Justin to any player who aspires to improve his game as well.

Justin works very well with my 7 year old. Very effective and professional from the scheduling through the session. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding baseball coach.

Coach Justin has been great to work with. Not only has he helped my son but he picked up on some of the mechanics that he was doing wrong. Justin made sure to explain to my son why he should be doing this vs that. I have seen major improvements in my son's execution and continue to help reinforce what coach Justin has taught him so far.

Coach Justin is a great trainer. Has drills and exercises that make his boys work, and is able to keep them practicing with a passion and love for the game!

Coach Justin did a GREAT job with my son. It was hands down the best private lesson he has ever had. Coach Justin worked him hard the entire time. He is very positive and knows how to teach the proper technique. My son can't wait for his next session!

I know we have a perfect match with Justin. He is extremely thorough with player's needs. We had our first session with him. I left excited about where we are headed.

Justin was great and made our son feel confident and comfortable right away. He pushed him hard but encouraged him all along. Our son's skills were greatly improved after just 6 sessions. In particular, his swing is profoundly better. Our son loved his time with Justin and we are considering more sessions with him in the future.

Justin was everything I wanted and more. He helped my son who had never been introduced to baseball feel confident and assured. We will be using him for the remainder, and my son looks forward to it.

Coach Justin has done a tremendous job getting my son to the next level. He pushes Jake to another level. Making him dig deep to find the drive and determination to not give up and battle at the plate. He's an excellent coach and we would recommend him to anyone!

Coach Justin is a great coach!

Coach Higgs has been awesome with Jake. He is really building his confidence. His progress in pitching and hitting the last 2 sessions has been amazing! I strongly recommend Justin for any player looking to improve their skills and understanding of the game!

Justin is very knowledgeable and during out first session reminded me of some basics that I had forgotten to remember. He is also very enthusiastic and provides a lot of encouragement. I will sign up for multiple sessions - I recommend Justin highly!

I would recommend coach Justin. He was very educated in the mechanics and basic thing you need to do in order to have a good powerful swing. Explained everything very well and knew what to fix and how to fix it. I will definitely be back for more lessons.

Justin is very knowledgeable about the game of baseball and is very patient as well. My son needs some training to improve his batting skills and I think that Justin is the person to do that. We look forward to working with him again.

An amazing coach. Had a coach prior to Justin, and the old coach didn't do near the job Justin did. Justin tells you what you are doing wrong and tells you how to fix it. He really knows what he's doing and notices everything you do. This was my first time using CoachUp and I was a little skeptical using this website to find a coach but it was worth it. If you live in the Houston area, no need to search further for a coach because Justin is it. Definitely will rebook for another perfect session

Justin is very patience and extremely helpful in developing my son's baseball skills. After the first lesson, my son's confidence and batting skills made a big jump forward. It is a worthwhile investment to see my son's skills improve week by week. We just played out first game of the season and everyone could see improvement since last season. I strongly recommend Justin's training sessions to anyone interested in learning the game of basketball or looking to improve and take their game to the next level.

Solid coach. Very pleased with his attention to technique.

Coach Justin is an outstanding teacher. He is very serious about his training and really works with my son to get him where he needs to be. My son has already made an improvement after two sessions. My husband and I are extremely happy we found Coach Justin, and we look forward to future sessions. Coach Justin is highly recommended.

Coach Justin was fantastic! Our son was a bit nervous but after the hour long session he couldn't wait for next week. I would strongly recommend coach Justin for any player that want's to improve there game.

I really like his style. I like how he uses things around the gym to assist my son every whichever way possible. Although other coaches we've worked with were also good, I wish we would've started with coach Justin Higgs from the get go.

We continue to be very happy with the coaching experience with Justin. My son has improved so much in the last 6 weeks and looks forward to his lessons each week. Justin is patient and truly enjoys teaching the game. We would highly recommend Justin!

Coach Justin was great with my son. After just one lesson I could honestly see a huge difference in his swing speed and fielding. He used several drills that really helped Hayden understand what he was supposed to do. My son really enjoyed the lesson. Five minutes after we left the facility he was already asking when we could go back. His patience and ability to work with kids is unmatched in my opinion. I highly recommend Coach Justin to anyone who is serious about improving their game.

My son got so much out of the first session I'm booking more! He learned allot and was very excited about learning more!

Coach Justin was great with my son. He really took the time to explain everything to him and the best part was that my son loved him and he can't wait to go back.

I was really impressed with the feedback given to my nephew by Coach Justin. He is patient with the young man and not only instructs him on pitching mechanics but takes the time to get know his kids. If your a parent/coach I highly recommend getting the proper training for your kids. The fundamental mechanics behind pitching is crucial for young arms and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND COACH JUSTIN to give some of the best Pitching and basic baseball training.

Coach Justin has really made a difference with my son's game in a short time with him.

He has the skill set, the right attitude and mix of push and patience it takes to provide a positive impact.

I would definitely recommend Coach Justin to any parents looking for improvement in their child's game.

My son Caden (7) has been coming to Coach Justin for over 2 yrs now with exceptional results. Coach Justin tailors his workouts to get the most out of Caden on each lesson and really focuses on areas of improvement while re-enforcing stronger aspects of his game. Caden currently plays on a 7UAAA select team and we will continue to use Coach Justin on a consistent basis to allow Caden to be taught the proper mechanics while improving and learning in a positive environment.

Justin's focus on mechanics, both hitting and pitching, for my 14 year old son Zach, is exactly what he needed. After 4 lessons there is a big difference in his batting. Pitching will require more time to "unlearn" some bad habits and adapt effective ones. Highly recommend Justin

Coach Justin is a great hitting coach! My two boys enjoy taking lessons with him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Coach Justin is a great coach. I learned more in one session with him than any other coach I've been coached by. He has great teaching techniques. I am looking forward to my next session with Justin.

Coach Justin is a vary patient coach with great skills. Keeps working the whole time and my son really enjoys his lessons.

Nolan is really making strides as a hitter. Coach Justin is the coach for several players on our 8U team. It's very easy to pick out the players. They are focused and know exactly what to do when they are up to bat. We're excited to be working with him. We have and will continue to recommend him to baseball players that are serious about getting better.

Justin has been giving lessons to my son, Jack (10), for about 8 months. Jack has improved in all aspects of his game. Justin is patient with Jack, yet he expects him to leave each lesson better than he started it. Justin is the perfect balance of fun while expecting discipline and excellence. I highly recommend Justin to my friends and will continue to do so.

Coach Justin was great with my son.He is patient and is a joy to work with, In just a few sessions my son feels more confident, his approach is better to the game, and he loves working with justin, would recommend him to anyone with small children 10 and under.

Fantastic instruction. Lots of mental work supported by sound fundamentals. Coach works very hard to make sure that players get the most of every minute.
The best instruction I could have found for my son! If you want someone with a true passion for the game, look no further, this is it!! Worth every penny and then some.
