We work with pitchers from eight (8) years old through college.
A typical lesson is a half hour, but you can schedule longer if time is available.
We only do one-on-one instruction.
We recommend only one lesson per week unless you are coming in from out of state. If you are within easy driving distance, take the time you would spend on a second lesson and put it into practicing on your own instead.
Yes. You are free to shoot and post video during lessons. We will also share videos we take on request.
We will notify you via text or Messenger (assuming we have your contact information) if lessons are canceled. We try to do this with enough advance notice to keep you from having to make a drive for nothing. Unless you hear lessons are canceled, assume they are on.
That depends. If we are outside or a location where we do the scheduling, you do not have to pay for a missed lesson. Otherwise, it is up to the facility. We have no control over that.
It depends on the injury. We can safely work around many issues. For example, if your daughter is a pitcher and has a shoulder injury, we can work on leg drive without throwing. Ultimately, though, it depends on the advice of your physician and your own comfort level.
That is definitely preferred. If you can't get a catcher we can have your daughter pitch into a screen or backstop. We may also be able to get a catcher for her if we are given enough notice.
We keep a Pocket Radar Smart Coach running throughout every lesson. It is connected to a Smart Display so the pitcher can see her speed with every pitch, which is useful for encouraging them to give maximum effort and for measuring the speed differential between a fastball and changeup. We can also shoot videos with speed readings embedded in them on request.
It is not required but it is helpful. The longer it takes to pick up balls in the outfield the less time we are able to spend on instruction and reps.
