Deven Morgan - Using Youth Sports to Encourage Athletes, Biological Development is Not Linear, Defining Your Value Proposition as a Coach, and More.

Coach Forward is an interview-style podcast hosted by Jason Mejeur (Coach J), accomplished Coach, Mentor, and Founder/CEO at MaxOne.

Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach Deven Morgan. Deven is the Director of Youth Baseball and the Founder of the Driveline Academy.

Driveline Baseball is the premier data-driven baseball player development organization in the world. They train players through state-of-the-art motion capture assessments, physical therapy evaluations, and specialized assessment-retest based pitching, hitting and high performance coaching.

Deven is responsible for creating the Driveline Academy team program, which consisted of 108 players across 8 teams in their first year. The program retained 90% of our players in year one, and now has 220 players across 18 teams in year two.

Deven also created the Youth Baseball Development certification course in January of 2020 to broaden his, and his student’s approach to developing "Skills That Scale" in youth baseball, and to date has more than 1,800 members.
