Director of Instruction
Chris Cauthorne has over 25 years experience playing, coaching, and developing boys and girls in Baseball, Softball, Basketball and Wrestling at many levels! Chris prides himself in the fact that along with his vast experience he constantly studies and learns from the best coaches and instructors around to stay current with skills and training from Cal Ripken Coaching, a member of Paul Reddick’s 90 MPH Club and one of the few in this area to instruct the Kinetic Chain for Hitting. On top of that he is one of the only staff instructors for Tincher Pitching in this area! All of these experiences and qualities allow him to pass on lessons and experiences to take your child to the next level.
Chris understands that there are many different games in sports and in life and teaches that we must take the skills that God has given us and use them to succeed on and off the playing field. He emphasizes that a winner is not judged only on wins but also on how he or she tackles the game and life. He also realizes that coaches & instructors are role models and that kids learn by our example.
Chris’ passion has been to open up a sports academy where athletes can develop in a positive but competitive environment and where they learn how to play the game and how to succeed in life. In addition to managing the Instruction for CSA Flames, Chris is available for training activities for individuals and teams but specializes in Softball Pitching.
