More About Coach Todd

I worked for nearly a decade with the football, swimming, basketball, volleyball, and softball programs at Indiana University where I was exposed to collegiate athletics at the very highest level. My coaching experience is high school varsity softball where I coached for three years prior to stepping away. At Wheaton Academy, I inherited a program in 2009 that had eight players in the entire program and next year Wheaton Academy will have three softball players playing Division I softball. While I have primarily worked with high school age athletes, I also enjoy instructing youth softball players.

I worked in the NFL and at Indiana University for more than a decade. I played club lacrosse for three seasons Indiana University and was a seven-time high school letterwinner in football, baseball, and swimming.

My specialty is teaching high-level hitting and catching techniques. I have helped develop multiple catchers who have earned all-state and all-league honors. With catchers, we begin with things as simple as how to properly wear equipment and progress to stance (signal, primary, secondary), receiving, blocking, and throwing. In addition, we coach the mental approach for top-flight catchers, including leadership, signal calling, and handling pitchers. I have attended many different catching clinics (online and in person) and subscribe most closely to the methods of Jerry Weinstein and NLCA (Justin Duarte). As a hitter instructor, I do not believe there is a difference between high-level baseball and fastpitch swings. My hitting instruction starts with mental approach, to stance, and comprehensive high-level hitting concepts. We spend most of our time with a variety of "T" work, front toss, and live pitching.

Client Reviews

We were apprehensive at first about CoachUp. But when we meet with Coach Todd about coaching our daughter in batting he made us, as parents, feel very comfortable. He was very informative, friendly, and took his time instructing our daughter. We actually saw an improvement in her stance and swing almost instantly. We were very pleased with our experience and will definitely continue.

Coach Todd is a fantastic coach. In just one lesson he helped correct my daughters swing and start hitting the ball with power. She loves his techniques and how he really focuses on her without criticism. She can't wait for her next session and to continue to work with him.

Very knowledgeable and helpful

Coach Todd was great! He took the time to explain everything he was teaching Maggie and ensure she understands it. I think his coaching will help her dramatically improve her softball skills

After just a few sessions I have noticed a drastic improvement in my daughter’s approach and confidence at the plate. Todd has also started tapping into power that she didn’t know she had. Most importantly, she LOVES working with him. I would (and already have) highly recommend Todd as a hitting coach-it’s been an excellent experience so far and I am sure we will continue to rely on his expertise.

We are so thrilled with the time and attention Todd has spent with our daughter. He has only worked with her twice but has such insight already about her as a player and the best style of coaching for her. We look forward to continue working with him!

Very impressed with his swing knowledge and his ability to articulate his knowledge with my 13 year old.

Would definitely use him again and recommend him.

We are very pleased with the results we see in our daughter from her working with Coach Todd.

Coach Todd was great on the first session with our daughter. He right away addressed some hitting techniques we had always wanted her to work on. We are looking forward to more session and can't wait to see our daughter improve.

I am so glad that we chose Coach Todd to work with. He individualizes the instruction so that he gets his point across to my daughter (a HS sophomore). She has had several sessions over the winter and I have seen tremendous improvement, not just in her batting, but in her confidence. She has always been a good hitter, but Coach Todd is taking her to the next level to be a great hitter. Today the high school started working in the batting cages to get ready for tryouts and the Varsity Coach said to my daughter, "Wow, our first varsity game isn't for 2 months and you are hitting like that already?".

Todd is excellent at coaching. Especially in regards to hitting. My daughter has become more confident after working with Todd. I would definitely recommend him!

My daughter has had only 2 sessions with Coach Todd, but already she had learned some new skills and has been able to apply them in her middle school games. Also the lessons have helped her gain CONFIDENCE. We have scheduled her lessons right after games, and even though shes tired she looks forward to them.

Coach Todd is very thorough, attentative and caring. Provides great feedback. We're already seeing improvements and could not be happier!

Claire got in the car after the first session and said (with a huge smile on her face), "That was so much fun! Coach Todd is awesome!"

Coach Todd has provided excellent instruction for my daughter. He took the time to break down he swing and build a strong foundation, as well as made sure she understood the importance of each part. Results were seen in her game performance after only a few lessons. Her confidence has improved, as well as her hitting.

So far my daughter has had two hitting lessons with Coach Todd and both my daughter and I are very happy. He is very knowledgeable about hitting and has an ability to explain the concepts in a way that is easy to understand and put in to practice. I would highly recommend Todd.

Coach Todd has gone above and beyond our expectations. Sam in just a short time has greatly improved both her mental and physical game play. She loves softball and is excited to work with Coach Todd each week. His knowledge of the game is exceptional.

My daughter has had many coaches in her six years of playing travel softball. However, none of them have shown the selfless attention that she’s experienced with Coach Starowitz. My daughter’s hitting and catching skills have grown immeasurably due to his instruction, and her confidence has improved equally. And while his coaching expertise alone would be enough for me to promote his coaching, his behind-the-scenes advocacy for my daughter has been the amazing icing on the cake. I highly recommend Coach Starowitz to any family looking for individual coaching.
As an athlete at Indiana I worked with Todd nearly every day for five years. I trust him and I know his heart for young people.
I've known Todd for nearly two decades since we worked together at Indiana University. He will make every effort to ensure that parents are receiving the service that they desire, and that young people will be the ultimate beneficiaries.
