COACHES/TEACHERS/CERTIFIED TRAINERS

Our teachers are hands down the best in the business.  We focus on development, training and discipline.

HITTING, PITCHING, FIELDING & CATCHING LESSONS

 

These days, baseball coaches are a dime a dozen.  Unfortunately, people with limited knowledge or experience tout themselves as "experts". And let's face it, not everyone who was successful at the game of baseball can teach it. Get Coached is the brand to trust for quality baseball instruction. We hold our coaches to the highest standard. They have not only played at some of the highest levels, but they also have extensive teaching and training experience. Our team includes coaches from the Little League level to varsity, college and even the professional level. They excel at identifying player's areas of strength and weakness and helping them develop into the best players they can be. If your child is ready to hone their skills, get serious about hitting or pitching, and "Get Coached," contact us.

TEAM ORGANIZATIONAL PRACTICES & MANAGEMENT

Coaches at many levels are graciously volunteering their time.  They already have one of the most important tools required of any coach:  Dedication. 

Our goal when  training is to help your coaches take it to the next level.  We will give them all the knowledge they need to become effective confident  leaders who get the most out of their players.  We will show them how to PRACTICE WITH A PURPOSE  so their players are ready for everything that happens during live play.  For more information, contact us.
