Personalized Training
Our coaches break down each player’s swing by analyzing every aspect of his hitting style, ability, and technique. Players receive personal recommendations to enhance future success at the plate.

Videotape Analysis
Every player’s swing will be videotaped and reviewed so that they can see exactly where they need to make adjustments. It is much easier to correct mechanics if you can see what the coaches are suggesting.

Players will leave with a game plan tailored to their hitting approach that will give them confidence not only in practice but also every time they step up to the plate.
