Scheduling Manager

I believe Defense Wins Championships.

My lessons are designed to combine fundamentals, agility and game-speed reps into each session for a quality weekly workout.

Girls participate in group instruction based on age & ability. Concepts covered rotate between glove work, posture, footwork, throwing mechanics & more.

The effort you put in is what you will get out of being a "regular" lesson. You will be expected to practice concepts outside of your lesson time in order to get better.

Lessons FAQ

How much are lessons?

$50 per player. Friday workouts are 1.5 hours and will be priced higher.


How many girls in each session?

The maximum I allow in any weekly class is 12 girls. For clinics and team workouts, more players will be allowed, but I’ll always compensate by hiring more coaches to help. There are many options for fielding lessons or classes in Southern California—what sets my lessons apart is the attention to detail and the small class sizes.


Do you have special pricing for sisters?

If you want to come regularly every week, each girl would be $40/hour when paying in cash. Every other week: $45/hour.

Do you do private instruction? 

No privates are offered at this time!


What is the Defense Lessons Membership?

For $8/month, you have access to my Drill Library and other members-only perks! Learn more here.


Can I bring my team?

There are options for team workouts here.


What days do you teach?

Monday-Wednesday at The Workshop in Anaheim.

Do you give hitting lessons?

Not anymore! I am 100% focused on defense, but I can give you great recommendations.

What if I have to cancel a lesson?

We have a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you need to cancel within 24 hours, you will be charged the price of your lesson. Rescheduling a lesson is subject to my availability.

"My daughter has been going to Morgan going on 4 years now. She has taught my daughter so much about fielding. She pays attention to the little things and has the girls make the adjustments in the moment. She instills confidence in the girls. Anywhere where from being more vocal, to quick feet, to glove placement. She covers all aspects of defense. This is why my daughter is in love with defense. The 2 biggest things she has strengthened my daughter with is short hops and without a doubt back hands!!!! I love to see my daughter make plays during her games from what she has learned and practiced in lessons with Morgan."
