The full hour lesson for pitching is for players that are seeking a comprehensive pitching experience. The hour lesson allows us the time to completely explore both throwing and pitching mechanics in full detail. We do this by using video tape analysis during the hour lesson, which vastly helps to illustrate what we are trying to demonstrate. This will allow the instructor to show the player their throwing and pitching on screen in slow motion. We Will also begin every lesson with a structured arm strength and agility work out, as well as a quality stretching and balance routine.
Private Pitching Maintenance
A lot of times the Advanced players feel confident on the mound and about their pitching mechanics, but still want to stay in shape and maintain their performance level. A lot of time the half hour is a good way to keep everything in order. The half hour is also a good amount of time for some of our younger players that are not quite ready for an entire advanced lesson.
Hitting & Pitching-
1 hour minimumThis is a quality lesson for both young players looking to learn the fundamentals of both pitching and hitting, as well as being a good maintenance lesson for an advanced player. A younger player will be able to have enough time to effectively work on both. An advanced player looking to get a full and comprehensive lesson for either hitting or pitching would be better off with a full hour lesson. This is a good way for an advanced player to maintain what he has learned for both hitting and pitching. THE PITCHING SEGMENT CAN ALSO BE CHANGED TO A DEFENSIVE SEGMENT.
Private Advanced Hitting
The full hour lesson is for players that are seeking a comprehensive baseball lesson. The hour lesson allows us the time to fully explore the swing in complete detail, and to teach Major League technique. We do this by utilizing video tape analysis during the hour lesson, which vastly helps us to illustrate what we are trying to accomplish. This form of instruction will allow the player to see their swing on screen in slow motion. This is by far the best way for a player to see what they need to improve on, and really helps us to teach more effectively. We also devote a segment at the end to hitting off of a pitching machine. This creates a more realistic game-like situation that will allow the coaches to see what changes occur from practice to the game.
Private Hitting Maintenance and beginning lesson

The half hour is also a good amount of time for some of our younger players that are not quite ready for the advanced lesson.
