About Todd Coburn

Our mission is to provide youth athletes with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the position of catcher in a fun and safe environment.

Our goal is to improve their levels of understanding and skill which might, in turn, improve their performance and increase their success.

It is hoped that through these successes our athletes will gain more confidence in themselves and develop a greater self-worth, on the field, at home, in the classroom, and in life.
