I began working with central Texas athletes back in 1997…Since then I have been fortunate enough to train more than 500 athletes in the art of hitting, defense and other aspects of the game.  Former students include Division 1 standouts, All-Americans, Team USA and NPF (professional fastpitch) players. I transitioned into coaching full time in 2008 after starting the current Texas Blaze program in 2003. I have a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Austin

FOR THE TEXAS BLAZE PROGRAM I serve as Director/President of Softball Operations & Recruiting as well as Team & Player Development coach

I mostly train athletes out of Austin Fastpitch Academy in Round Rock but am available to train other places as well.

JBS & MULTI-MEDIA PRODUCTION: In addition to coaching I really enjoy multi-media production which includes creating Recruit Videos for athletes, graphics work including uniforms, t-shirt design, and web design, and finally music production in various genres.

FAMILY: I am blessed to be married to Tatyana Slimp for more than 20 years --- we have three amazing kids together; Brittani, Rylee, and Jaxon
