Casey Medairy has been playing and coaching baseball for a combined 24 years. He is the founder of Coach COA, a company that specializes in practice management in youth sports with a focus on baseball. Casey strives to help coaches across the country become managers of their time in practice planning to maximize the time spent developing their players. He began his coaching career at Atholton HS in 2012 and is currently the head varsity baseball coach at Hammond HS (since 2013).
Casey has seen success at every level of youth baseball. He was part of the 2002 National Amateur Baseball Federation (NABF) World Series Championship team in Hopkinsville, KY. Just a few short years later he was named the 2005 NABF Batting Champion after going 9-for-13 (.692 BA) at the World Series in Detroit, MI. He was part of the 2006 Maryland Oriolanders Fall Team and the 2010 Takoma Thunderbolts in the Cal Ripken, Sr. League. Casey committed to UMBC his junior year of high school where he played outfield his four years there earning a starting spot as the centerfielder. Medairy played in 99 games at UMBC between the 2008-2011 seasons. His senior year he led the Retrievers with a 0.386 OBP with 39 hits, 20 runs, and 12 multi-hit games.
He has since coached at the Crabfest Showcase, Battle of the Counties, the 17U Rawlings A’s Prospects summer team, and is currently the 3A East Regional Director for MD State HS baseball. When Casey is not on the baseball field, he enjoys spending time with family, visiting national parks, and teaching chemistry in high school.
Casey built Coach COA with the coach in mind. He knows how rewarding of an experience coaching can be but, from year to year, more and more coaches stop coaching after a season or two. Coach COA is designed to cut back on all the time preparing practices and putting the fun back into coaching. He acknowledges that there are always ways coaches can get better, and encourages new and experienced coaches to further their understanding of their sport and find what works for them.
