There are several ways for Coach Xan to help improve your catching game. Outside of the many resources in the store, you may want to get some one-on-one time with Xan Barksdale. Coach Xan is available for lessons, camps, clinics, and speaking engagements. See below for some of the upcoming opportunities to get even more time with Xan.


One-on-One Private Instruction

*I am currently COMPLETELY BOOKED with private lessons and am not accepting new clients.  If you would like to get on my waiting list please contact me.

The reason I became a coach is because I love working with players and sharing what I’ve learned about catching with players who are looking to become the best they can possibly be.

I currently give lessons in Nashville and Cincinnati, OH.  The hourly rate is $175/hour with a minimum of 2 hours.

In our time together I will evaluate your skills, help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, work with you to improve your mechanics, and leave you with an action plan so that you continue to get better after you leave the lesson.
