Are you the parent of a catcher? Or, are you a coach looking for guidance in coaching your catchers?
Do you want to learn how to coach your catcher (even if you’ve never caught or played baseball before)?
As a parent or a coach, do you want to connect with your catcher around a common purpose (and learn how to navigate the tricky parent-player coaching dynamic if you're a parent)?
Do you want to create lifelong memories (and still talk about those memories with your child when you become a grandparent)?
If you answered yes to even one of those questions then you need to keep reading because Catcher University's Parent’s Guide to Coaching Catchers is exactly what you’ve been hoping for…
Have you ever asked yourself...
If you find yourself asking some (or all!) of those questions, don't worry. You are not alone. I have heard questions like these from too many parents and coaches to count.
You have the opportunity to be the most important coach your catcher as ever had. But, to be that coach you also know that you need some guidance when it comes to coaching your catcher.
Why is that exactly?
CATCHING IS HARD
The reality is that catching is hard. In fact, catching is not only the most important position on the field… it’s also the most challenging. Here’s why:
Catching is the most important position on the field. It impacts winning and losing games more than any other position.
And yet, it’s not only the hardest position to play… it’s also the hardest position to coach… why is that?
WHY IS GOOD CATCHING INSTRUCTION SO HARD TO FIND?
It’s hard to coach catchers because it’s WAY TOO hard to find good catching instruction. The reason it's so hard to find good catching instruction comes down to simple math...
... There are fewer catchers than there are any other position on the field, therefore there are fewer people that have played catcher.
... Since there are fewer catchers than any other position, there are also fewer people who have played catcher at a high level (like collegiate and professional) than any other position.
... Because so few people have played catcher at the collegiate or professional level, the pool of potential coaches is smaller than for any other position.
... Then, even out of the few people who have played catcher at the highest levels, even fewer are willing/able to teach catching.
… Finally, hiring expert catching coaches can be extremely expensive and you can only afford so many camps, lessons, and clinics.
CATCHING IS ALSO THE BEST OPPORTUNITY IN BASEBALL
Catching the hardest position in baseball. Anyone who argues otherwise doesn’t understand baseball.
But, catching is also the greatest opportunity in baseball.
EVERY team needs a good catcher to be successful. You’ve probably experienced the difference a good or bad catcher makes in the outcome of a game.
With that in mind, every coach is going to be looking for good catchers. Catching is the best opportunity for any player to make any team they are trying out for - anywhere from the youth levels to high school varsity teams to collegiate/professional teams.
Catching presents unique challenges and is the hardest position to both play and coach. But, for those who have the resources and put in the work, its also the best opportunity for a player to make the team they are trying out for and contribute to that team’s success.
YOU COULD BE THE KEY TO YOUR CHILD’S SUCCESS
I know first-hand how powerfully a parent’s coaching can change a child’s life…
My dad is the most important coach I ever had. My eyes start watering every time I think about everything that my dad has done for me. My dad wasn’t a catcher. He didn’t even play varsity baseball. But, he was absolutely essential to every ounce of success I experienced as a player.
I know how much my dad meant to my career as a player. As a parent, I also know what it feels like to want to do absolutely anything to help my son succeed. And, as a coach, I know what it takes to help a catcher at every level - from learning how to put their gear on the right way all the way to excelling at the collegiate/professional level.
That’s why this Parent’s Guide to Coaching Catcher’s exists…
Because this guide is PACKED with all the information you need. Here’s what you’ll learn:

BUT WAIT, WHO AM I AND WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO ME?
My name is Matt Williams and I am the Founder of Catcher University. I started catching when I was 8 years old because I was the only kid who showed up to my little league game wearing a cup.
Since then, catching has allowed me to…
