More About Coach Richard

I have always been passionate about sports, fitness, and my community. Over the past 10 years I have worked with athletes of all ages to get more out of life by encouraging personal development through sports and fitness. During my career, I have helped athletes increase their athletic and academic performance, physical fitness and overall well-being by developing a program that is both challenging and creative.

Prior to starting my company, I was a high school head baseball coach and athletic director. I have experience working with Major League Baseball's Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) program through DC RBI.

More recently, I have coordinated camps and clinics and worked with athletes 1-on-1. I have also worked with different collegiate coaches and programs.

I seek to continue my passion for sports and community involvement by offering community members fun and creative sessions that will improve performance, reduce stress effects, and elevate expectations.

No two athletes are alike and neither are any of my programs. I work with athletes to help them do their best, be their best, and get more out of life from and beyond their sport.

4 year Varsity starter in high school, recognized as MVP and Most Dedicated Player.

Played Division I Baseball at Howard University until the program was cancelled. After the cancellation of the program, I started Howard University Club Baseball which was a participant in the NCBA.

In 2011, after years of not playing, I joined the Carolina Kakalacks, of the CNCMSBL. In the years I have played, we have won the Championship in 4 out of 6 years.

My coaching style focuses on the long-term development of the athlete. First, information on the athlete's background is shared. Next, a training road map is created based on goals that have been identified. After this, we connect the road map and the information to implement an action plan for development.

Most sessions include:
- Active Warm-up
- 2-3 Training Topics/Activities/Drills
- Active Cool Down
- Road Map Review/Preview

At the end of each session, the athlete will be asked Did you learn something new? Did you get better? Did you have fun in the process?

Learn. Grow. Enjoy.

Client Reviews

Coach Richard is a great coach. After the initial assessment, I knew he was a perfect match to coach my son and immediately signed up for the 4-week program. He provides a thorough evaluation of my son's progress after each session and is committed to his ongoing development.

Coach Richard has been a great coach for our son. We were referred to him by a friend who had worked with Coach Richard for several years and highly recommended him. Coach worked with our son to be more athletic in the game and increase his overall knowledge and confidence levels both on and off the field. We look forward to continuing with Coach Richard for quite some time!

This is a great coach from what I have experienced so far he reads my actions very well which helps him establish what to say and what to work on. This is a very intelligent coach that has a lot of energy and I enjoy working with him.

Coach Richard is a great coach, he is very knowledgeable, patience and most of all encouraging to my daughter. She has developed a new love for softball because of the increased skills gain and confidence as a result of Coach Richards expertise. Thank you Coachup and Coach Richard we look forward to continuing with the program.

Great coach

He was great. My son responded very well to what he had to say and show him. We are looking forward to working with him more!

My son enjoyed working with Richard. He appeared knowledgeable, polite and was communicative. My son was injured so it is hard to know how much progress he made under Richard’s tutelage but we enjoyed the work they did together.

Richard is very patient, engaging, funny...a great coaching experience. I'll be signing up for more sessions.

Our first lesson couldn’t have been better- Ben loves Coach Richard’s style, enthusiasm, and sense of humor! He worked with him on pitching and hitting, and made it informative and fun- we are looking forward to working with him again soon!

Even though it was my son's first session with Coach Richard, it was very productive. He used this session to evaluate my son and see what he needs to work on to improve his speed and agility. Coach Richard is not only knowledgeable, but took time to discuss with my son his intentions and really listened and cared for my son's input. We will continue to work with Coach Richard in the future. Furthermore, I coach my son's tackle football team and will probably have Coach Richard hold a speed and agility clinic for my entire team.

Our 11 year old son had an amazing 4 sessions with coach Richard, which addressed exactly what he needed most in a very engaging manner. Our son visibly loved it, consciously learned a lot about technique and especially mindset that helped him develop a focused and mindful approach to the game and his play. We cannot wait to be able to have more sessions in the future and would recommend coach Richard to anyone.

We've been receiving lessons with Coach Richard for over 2 years now. My son really enjoys it as Coach Richard helps improve his skills by pushing him while still keeping it fun. He helps in all aspects of the game including what you believe you need improvement in as well as coaching in areas that he sees as areas of improvement. He also coaches through positive reinforcement which is great if my son is feeling a little bit down. Overall, we highly recommend Coach Richard!

Great with my two boys! Looking forward to other sessions.

Richard is great coach for the baseball. My son (13) really enjoyed his sessions that full of interesting stuff and fundamental skill development, etc. He also pin points areas of improvement throughout the sessions which helped my son to focus on. I recommend Richard for people who looking for baseball skill improvement.

Coach Richard makes baseball fun for my son and that in itself is worth the cost.

Coach Richard really set the tone for our team of boys. He was organized and provided a great workout that would carry over to the field!! I am looking forward to seeing more of what he has to offer our guys on the field!

Coach Richard was just what my 7 year old grandson needed 1 lesson seemed to build his confidence up & he really absorbed his lesson I would love to do more future lessons & highly recommend Richard to anyone

Richard really seems to know what he's doing. I appreciated his fast responses as well as his feedback from his session with my son. Will definitely be booking more sessions!

Coach Harris is a great coach. Each session is planned ahead of time and builds on the previous sessions. Coach Harris has extensive knowledge of the sport of baseball, as well as the athletic skills needed to be a quality player. His teaching style is simple, yet challenging.

It has been a great experience for our family working with Coach Harris.

Richard is an excellent teacher! Our son learned a lot from his instructions.
Great program. Richard did a great job. I felt he tuned the instruction well to my son's needs. It was a fun learning environment. Definitely plan to recommend to others.
Coach Richard Harris and Get Ready Athletics have provided our Youth Baseball League with various clinics that focus on the fundamental stepping stones players need to improve their games. His core values match up well with the goals of our program in that we focus on fun and fitness first. Richard is a consummate professional and has been extremely easy to work with.
