Zac Stout

My name Zac and I work in the private sector as a catching researcher, consultant, and instructor. I help players and coaches from little-league to professional levels navigate the intricacies of the catching position and skill development.

If you're looking to get into the weeds on catching, challenge the status quo, think differently about player development, and unlock your full potential, than my courses are perfect for you!

I love to talk catching, so feel free to reach out to me on the community page and let's discuss catching!
