About the Coach
Dave Weaver founded The New England Catching Camp in 1994 after realizing that instruction for the toughest position on the diamond was generally unavailable. Weaver teaches at numerous facilities throughout New England and conducts group clinics, team workshops, coaches clinics, and private sessions with catchers of all ages. Dave has coached athletes in a variety of sports for over 30 years, and has been a coach for catchers from youth through professional levels.
"A Coaches Guide to Training Catchers, Volume II, by Dave Weaver is simply the finest catcher’s training DVD on the market today. Dave takes the art of catching to a level few coaches are able to reach during their regular season. His techniques not only teach players how to become great catchers, they teach catchers how to become great leaders. As a head high school coach and director of New England’s largest Little League coaches’ clinic I have not found anyone who compares when it comes to knowledge and passion for the catcher’s position." - Joe Lindley, Director of the New England Little League Coaches’ Clinic
"Coach Weaver's drills are in depth but easy to understand. With repeated practice, these drills lead a catcher to have FAR fewer passed balls, accurate and consistent throws, and a pitcher with full confidence in his backstop. Every coach, from T-Ball to College would do well to learn how to develop a catcher from Coach Weaver. A solid catcher is a leader on the field that a team can be built around. Any coach that desires to have full confidence in their catcher should buy the DVD." - Tim Creamer, Head Coach at Melrose High School (MA)
