Private Instruction

We teach all aspects of the game of baseball and softball including hitting, pitching, catching, fielding, mental approach and more. Result speeds will vary from player to player but improvements can be noticed just after the very first session.

Private lessons are taught by strong back-grounded coaching professionals and are designed for 30 minute sessions per skill focus for optimum retention.

Learning is a process. One lesson will get the basics down but a series of lessons, normally once per week, will yield better results over time . Instructors will normally assign home work with drills to do on your own to get ready for the next lesson.

Private Instruction is $50 per session, or $185 per month for a series of four.

Appointments are available daily. Please call us today @ 281-251-3330 to get started!
