We are LEARN.StoutCatching

A community of passionate coaches and catchers

We are an online school based in the United States committed to providing and continuously improving the player development of baseball catchers everywhere.

My story

I believe in you

I started LEARN.StoutCatching after meeting many coaches and programs that were struggling to find the information needed to develop their catchers. A lot of teams don't have the luxury of a dedicated catching instructor on staff, leaving a pitching, hitting, or defense coach to work with the catchers.

That's why I wanted to create a community where coaches of all backgrounds could come to learn about catcher development and share in our collective passion for this great position.

The catching community is one of the best! Filled with tons of great coaches willing to share their experiences, thoughts, and struggles. Outstanding people who just want to see the position progress.

Whether you're brand new to coaching catchers, or you've been doing it for years, I hope you'll give us a try and find out for yourself just how awesome this community really is!
