Client Reviews

I booked a session with David when I visited Jacksonville on vacation. He did an excellent job analyzing and improving my throwing mechanics. It was a lot of fun and David did a great job adjusting his teaching techniques to a 63-year old!

Coach Hurst works with our high school baseball player, on refining and improving on his existing skills. We value the way he makes drills fun. We value the way he interacts with our son and encourages him. Our son looks forward to upcoming lessons.

Coach Hurst is great!

He’s knowledgeable, highly skilled, patient and keeps my son engaged.

We look forward to training with him and noticed improvements after the first session. My sons confidence has also increased with Dave’s positive attitude towards learning and encouragement.

I would highly recommend Dave for any skill level.

Thank you for everything!

Great guy ! Tons of baseball knowledge! He really cares about the kids.

Coach Hurst was very helpful with his instructions for my 12 year old son. Gave insight to hitting mechanics. My son was appreciative of the session.

Coach David has been helping our son better focus and work on his form. We already see the difference. What’s more is that our son enjoys the time with Coach David.

Coach David is amazing and my son loves working with him. I can't wait to how much my son grows from his training. Thanks so much.

Great training

Outstanding guy and great coach! Excellent with beginners.

I recently took my 9yr old son for a pitching lesson with Coach David and it was a great experience. He gave him lots of good feedback and drills to develop his fundamentals. My son has already asked to go back and I'd definitely recommend him to others.

Coach David provided great instruction and drills for our young team and new coaches.

Took my 8yo to see coach David for a introductory pitching lesson. Overall a great and valuable lesson filed with confidence building and insight. Both my son and I look forward to our next lesson and having coach David becoming a regular coaching figure in my sons life.

David has worked with my 8 year old with specific drills to help with his hitting. The patience and encouragement he has shown my son has been very appreciated. My son is able to tell me what he is being taught and how it helps him to be a better hitter. He looks forward to his next sessions with Coach David. He is a somewhat shy kid until he gets comfortable with you, but it seems to have been a great connection from the beginning. So glad we found CoachUp and Coach David!

Great experience.. My 8YO can’t wait to practice with coach David again.

After 7 sessions with Coach Hurst there have been definite improvements in Zach’s throwing, hitting and fielding. He always looks forward to his next session.

Our first session with Coach David was great! He was very professional and shared several techniques that will help make my son be a better pitcher. My son is looking forward to his next session and we intend to use Coach David moving forward to help with batting as well.

David really knows the mechanics of baseball and has great methods for getting my son to grasps it. Excited for more lessons for sure.

Coach David is awesome. My son is always excited and ready for training. He also said that Coach Davids training techniques are unique and the drills are helping in making him a more skilled player.

Great job with our son Sunday. Appreciate your patience and working in that heat! Our son has been "squishing the bug" and "turning his hips" all week! Thank you!
