Why Learn From Jeff?  

  • My passion for maximizing human sport performance in elite sport started in my university years. In my spare time I would volunteer to work with varsity teams, olympic athletes and national teams training at the university facilities.

  • In the last 30 years as a Strength and Conditioning Talent Development Specialist, I have worked with professional sport organizations in baseball, football and the NHL, including my time with the Toronto Blue Jays as their Strength & Conditioning Specialist as well as the former Edmonton Eskimos.
  • I am proud to have been involved at the global game development level working with the MLB International programs supporting organizations across Europe, Africa, Mexico, the USA, New Zealand and with Baseball Canada.
  • Now pro teams all over the world fly me in to speak to their organizations, players fly in to meet and I do consulting with agents.
  • Not to mention the 16 years we have broadcast the Krush Performance Radio show and now the podcast is on most streaming platforms.

Have You Ever Wondered Why the Injury Rates in Sport Are So High?

Right now, we are experiencing some of the highest injury rates ever recorded in every single age group - INCLUDING the professional levels. 

Have You Noticed the Drop Out Rates in Sport?

We have historically high drop out rates especially at some of the most critical periods of development.

Or have you ever wondered - have we maxed out human performance?

There are incredible things going on in sport right now but I don't think we are even close to maxing out human performance. In fact I am sure of it! And if that is the case where does the next level of performance come from?

I've studied this for years. I've broken it down, reversed engineered it, put it back together and there are a couple of common themes that always makes an appearance. Coaching and Long-Term Development.
These are massive themes with countless moving parts. But if you trace it back to a starting point - it all begins with an understanding of how to prepare your players to be coached.

 Here is what we know...

This is one of the most exciting times in the history of sport.

  • We can raise the ceiling of potential for each of your players,
  • Push your team to new heights of performance,
  • And set your organization up for continued success.

I know we can do this because I've been a part of it. I've seen it first hand and I have helped put it all together time and time again.

And that is exactly what I want to share with you right here in "Creating Coachable Players" Key Strategies for Player Performance and Injury Prevention in Baseball
I created this course to help fill a HUGE gap that exists in the sporting landscape.


It's important for coaches to understand the ebb and flow of athlete development and how it links and supports player development and in game performance.

Before we go any further I want to talk about who this course is for:

  • IF you are volunteer coach who like so many others out there wear all the hats - this course will be invaluable.

  • IF you head up a more advanced program and have assistant coaches or a performance team this course will give you an understanding that will allow you to better delegate & guide your entire athlete/player development program.

  • IF you are part of a major High School, University or College program this course may get you thinking about things you have never thought of before - pushing the performance of program to new heights.

  • AND there is no question in my mind the information covered in this course will benefit anyone involved at the professional level.

  • THIS course is for ANYONE coaching in the game of baseball
    at any level.

  • IF you are looking to Improve Your Players performance
    - Short Term & Long Term

  • IF you are looking to REDUCE your players risk of Injury

This course is for you if...

You are looking to learn the key strategies for athlete/player development.

Coaching is one of the most noble forms of leadership. As a leader you are responsible for many moving parts of your team/organization along with creating the "culture", the environment, leadership and goal setting just to name a few. By the end of this course you will have a deeper understanding of all of the above, as well as, the fundamentals of the Top Priorities and Key Strategies for Athlete/Player Development and Performance to take your coaching to the next level.

You want to expand your knowledge and learn how to prepare your players for the game.

As a coach there is one thing you must understand, the athlete comes first. By the end of this course you will understand why 'The Athlete' must be addressed before before 'The Player' if you want to maximize development and performance while at the same time reducing the risk of injury and raising your players ceiling of potential both short term and long term.


You want to run a GREAT program and truly contribute to the development of each and every player you coach.

The best coaches know: WHAT to do, WHEN to do it, for HOW LONG and with WHO it best applies. As athletes grow, mature and develop there are "critical periods of development" we should focus on in terms of athlete & player development. By the end of this course you will understand why the big picture is so important to coaching & player development.


I Want To Make It Clear 

-this course IS NOT-

about hitting drills, fielding drills or pitching.

As Coaches we are often limited in how much we can help our players 
because they can't do what we need them to do.

This Course Is About:

  • Helping YOU create more adaptable, more robust, more durable... and ultimately more coachable players for you to coach.

  • Getting your players ready for those drills

  • Getting your players ready for the game of baseball.

  • Improving your players athleticism and reducing their risk of injury.

  • Preparing them for the game as athletes so you can coach them to new heights as players!

Key Strategies For Player Performance & Injury In Baseball

Why I created this course...

I have been asked for years by coaches to put together a resource like this and I have finally been able to do it. It's been a huge commitment and I am proud to share this important information with you.

And second, I created this course to fill a huge gap that exists in the sporting landscape. The absence of proper athlete preparation for the game of baseball that has resulted in historically high injury rates - at every level of the sport - and a lower level of overall talent development. I've seen it first hand - globally. 


Choose Your CCP Course Level

Understanding the levels of development and what your responsibilities are as a coach at every level of the game is crucial to overall player development.

No Matter What Level You Coach
, you are part of a bigger picture of long term development.

How and What you coach today not only impacts your players and their performance right now but it can impact the next level of coaching as to what can be coached and developed next, from grassroots and youth to developmental and elite to the professional levels.

Coaching is like building a pyramid, you need a strong base before moving to build the next level.
This is why I found it so important to build course levels to "Creating Coachable Players".


CCP Level One 
New & Grassroots Coaches

Level one helps to support coaches who are new to the sport and for those coaching grassroots or youth baseball. The topics covered will be invaluable to start you off on the right foot.
Recommended for coaching 6 to 12 years of age


CCP Level Two
Dedicated & Development Coaches 

This level is for coaches who are dedicated to coaching. Coaches who have been involved in coaching for a number of years and plan to continue coaching players at the developmental levels and into the high performance pathways of the game. Coaches who may be coaching their kids team year after year or who are passionate about giving back to their community and the game.
Level Two will help guide you through the growth and development of your players from year to year and it may just get you thinking about things you may not have thought of before – pushing the performance of your program to new heights.
Recommended for coaching 12 to 16 years of age


CCP Level Three
Career & Professional Coaches

There is no doubt in my mind, level three will benefit anyone involved at the elite levels of the game, . Level three is the Master Class of "Creating Coachable Players" designed for coaches who work full time in sport or for any coach who seriously wants to provide the greatest opportunities possible for their players and athletes.
Recommended for coaching elite players, high school academies, College levels or Pro ball


"Creating Coachable Players" is for anyone coaching in the game of baseball -

just choose the level that is right for you at this moment. You can always take the next level as you expand your coaching knowledge. We will be adding to each level of the program continuously as we work together to solve problems and help our players develop and perform.
