Helping parents/players since 2007 on questions about:
Tryouts – what coaches look for
Rec/Park District Baseball vs Travel Baseball
What to expect from the Team/Coach
More Practice vs Professional Instruction
Team Practices vs Small Group Camps
At-Home Development vs Baseball Facility Practice
Maximizing Exposure During College Prospect Showcases
Whether 2-players Semi-Private training or 4-5 players Small Group Camps, your budget and player will appreciate these effective and economical trainings that provide near
Personal 1-on-1 Instruction
The very best approach used to achieve a player’s full potential. An excellent way to develop players over the years, especially when they are crossing over from Minors (9-10) to Majors (11-12), Majors to Pony (13-14) and Pony to Colt (15-18).
Not only does the field dimensions inrease, but the velocity of the game and pitches become more challenging. Hitting (Curves & Change-Ups), Base Running (Lead-offs & Secondary Lead), Pitching (From Stretch & Pick-Offs), Bunting (Sacrifice & Suicide), Defensive Situations (1st & 3rd Situations) become increasingly challenging too.
Off-Season Strength and Conditioning
August through December is the small window that baseball players have to really focus on strength training -safely. If you’re stronger, you will hit and throw harder and hand-eye coordination, timing, as well as balance are improved too!
In-Season On-Field Instruction
Base running, fielding (fly balls and grounders), hitting, pitching and strike zone awareness are drastically developed during the season by training outdoors on a real field.
Practice opportunities (touches), hitting and fielding reps, is the way young players develop.
Team practices and games do not provide sufficient practice opportunities to get players to the next level. A 2-hour TEAM practice/game doesn't compare to the amount of PERSONAL practice and instruction that Coach Gil can give students in 30-minutes!
Learn the importance of proper preparation (pre-game, on-deck, in-between innings, etc.) so you can maximize your development throughout the season! A critical component of a successful ball player, yet, another, often overlooked area by most instructors.
