DSA High School Coach – Duane Alexander

Coach Duane says: “I have had the wonderful privilege of coaching for 15 years in high school, 3 years in college; I have coached 14, 16 & 18U travel ball. Twice my teams have cracked the sweet 16 end of year “Nationals” tournament. I have over 30 years of coaching experience in youth baseball, football and softball. I truly believe serving the families in the community is a privilege and want to help build the DSA softball program.”

This game is vastly different from baseball and when coaching his girls, he focuses on developing the fundamental skills so as they grow they have a solid foundation to achieve success.

He primarily uses positive reinforcement as it is proven superior in developing life long skills.
