| Development First Sports Academy is Atlanta newest state-of-the-art baseball, softball, and sports performance training facility located in Tucker, GA, just inside I-285. We seek to provide a superior travel baseball and softball experience, world-class sports performance training, and unmatched coaching in a diverse yet challenging environment that focuses on developing the whole person. We seek to enhance the lives of all players we interact with while offering a solid foundation for life, college, or entry into professional-level play.
A D1 baseball coach is responsible for the rigorous development of our youth baseball players, must embrace diversity, and embody our core values of hard work, self accountability, respect, and humility. They are able to communicate with each other, players, parents, and officials in a manner that reflects these values. While we all have a passion for the game and love winning, D1 coaches seek first to build mechanics and the foundations of proper play. Development First Sports Academy is the only model of its kind in the Atlanta-metro area.
