Private instruction is an essential part of the developmental process for any baseball or softball player trying to take their game to the next level. Baseball and softball are difficult sports, and understanding, regardless of level, that no two players are the same and at different point in their development is the consideration that guides our staff. Players can expect their instructor to appropriately assess the player’s current ability, and thereby instruct and advise on what may or may not be best for him or her going forward. Whether you’re 10 years old, a high school player, whether you desire an off-season routine, or mid-season tune ups, our experienced coaches can provide a road map for your development.

My name is Chirstian Metz and I have a vast experience and knowledge of coaching; I have coached athletes of all ages from youth to players that have played college Baseball at the Division I, II and III Levels.
As a baseball coach I have over twelve years of coaching experience. In 2005 my coaching career started as a youth and high school coach in Pickerington, Ohio. While coaching for area high schools and baseball clubs I found my passion and love for coaching. In 2012 I relocated to the East Coast where I had the opportunity to coach at the high school level for Person High School in Roxboro North Carolina, Stafford High School in Stafford, Virginia TC Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia and Herndon High School in Herndon, Virginia.

In 2005 I ended my collegiate career playing Division II at The University of Findlay where I was a outfielder and then asked to attend a professional baseball tryout for the Cleveland Indians. Currently I am working on earning my Masters in Coaching from Ohio University.
As a coach I strive to create a fun and enthusiastic learning environment. It is my philosophy to ensure that all players have a solid fundamental skill set and then build on their technical skills. I tailor all instruction to the individuals needs and abilities.
