Meet Duke Baxter and Steve Nikorak
Your Course Instructors
We’re glad to have you as part of our Dominate the Diamond community. Coach Steve Nikorak and I created this community and our courses with every youth coach (and parent) in mind. We live and breathe baseball. We’ve played in elementary, high school, college and pros and we’ve been coaching for years. Our goal is to help fellow coaches teach the game that we love and keep the kids playing.
We want to equip parents and coaches with all the tools necessary to become great coaches and get the absolute most out of their players. Building team chemistry, formulating drills and practice plans, keeping the game fun and communicating effectively with players are just a few of the qualities a coach must possess.
Each day, we’re fortunate to coach and train kids of all ages and skill sets. We dedicate our lives to being good role models, mentors and leaders–on and off the field. We fully understand that as coaches, we have an obligation to lead by example because our impact can be life-changing. We’re constantly trying to better ourselves and recognize that coaching is a never-ending self-development process. Just like the players, we must strive to be better each day. We must educate ourselves and work hard to improve. That is why we have created this community. So, again Welcome! We are truly glad you’re here.
