TC347: Donnie McKillop, The Loomis Chaffee School

Trying to ensure that all bases are covered when it comes to the coaches we interview for the Top Coach podcast, and having covered every type of organization from D1 Power 5 to junior high school, we’ve represented nearly every aspect of amateur baseball coaching. In this episode, however, we drive down the private school road just a bit further as we explore the world of exclusive New England prep school baseball with the head coach at The Loomis Chaffee School, Donnie McKillop.

In this episode, Coach McKillop discusses what life is like at Loomis Chaffee, why so many of their students play sports (and play multiple sports), how coaching in two sports helps him develop as a coach, the prep school league, his other duties (Assistant AD, among other things), facilities, and staff.
