Martin Rubinoff

My name is Martin Rubinoff and I am skills acquisition teacher/educator of the mastery of skills of baseball and softball. My teaching motto is: "People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care. To coach/teach the skills of baseball you need to build a “learning relationship,” built upon trust, awareness, discovery and curiosity and a growth mindset filled with grit. All the talent, knowledge and experience one has must be backed by discipline, judgement commitment and awareness. You can reach martin at Rubinoff University
