Chaos Instructional Staff


The Chaos coaching staff is made up of highly skilled volunteer coaches who pride themselves on teaching the game of softball to generations of young girls. Not only do the coaches do this for the love of the game – they coach the game the right way.  Their success speaks for itself.

For individual hitting and pitching lessons, there are many good options available. We do not require any of our players to use any one instructor. Any fees paid to an instructor for individual lessons are not part of our Chaos team fees.

Our recommendation for our players are the following two outstanding instructors - both of which work out of Club Chaos (and other facilities as well):

Russ Cooper - Pitching  314-807-4544

Lindsay Benck - Hitting 314-221-9268

Rachel Gill - Hitting & Catching 314-623-2460

Will Bradley - Hitting     314-537-4105
