Coach Greg is very thorough. My son is 9 and this is his second season of Baseball. He is a naturally athletic, talented child and knew that fine tuning his skills would benefit him greatly. Coach Greg gives detailed, easily understood directions and also made it fun, yet trying for Jaiden. You can definitely see my sons wheels turning. I am VERY pleased with our session and can’t wait until next week! Thanks Coach!

Coach Greg was fantastic. My 12 year old son was a mediocre pitcher. After a session with Coach Greg, his pitching form and ball speed improved dramatically. He taught him the fundamentals and what to work on to improve his skills.

I have a softball player who is at an age division where she should be sliding with confidence. She was a catcher in her younger years and didn't have the opportunity to develop her base running skills. At her current division, she is expected to know it. Time is not spent at practices working on sliding. I hired Greg and had to postpone because she had an injury. Finally connected and it was great! He really started from the basics and did not advance to full sliding until he believed that she believed she could do it confidently. Success! She needs to still put the work in but now has a greater understanding of the mechanics and how to do it safely. I can't wait for this season to start to see her in action. Thanks Greg!

Coach greg did a great job with my 10 year old son. I can see an improvement in just one lesson. He gave my son some great tips that he will forever have. He was also flexible with booking times. Looking forward to booking more sessions with him.

Great work coach my girls loved training with you I will be scheduling more days with yo.

Coach Greg had some great pointers for my young player. We will be using him again.

Coach Greg has been great! He's helping my daughter sharpen her softball skills and he's great at explaining exactly what she needs to do to make improvements. He's positive and knowledgeable!

Coach Greg is an excellent coach that I would recommend for all levels. He has been coaching my grandson on baseball fundamentals and it has already made a big difference in his play and confidence. He is very knowledgeable and patient and takes time to explain the skill and then drill the technique. I would recommend Coach Greg to beginners or highly experienced players.

Coach Greg did a great job with our boys. In our first session he brought them back to the basics and taught them new skills. He only focused on fielding that first session. They actually loved it and learned a lot. Our 12-year old is trying out for a competitive team and said he felt more confident because of the one session they've had so far. Both boys have asked us to schedule more coaching sessions with Greg. We definitely will and recommend him to everyone.

Coach work well at teaching fundamentals and building confidence. He was punctual and was prompt with responses.Great job, we will plan to use him again next time we are in California. Thanks Coach!

Coach Greg is very skilled and knowledgeable and is teaching me how to throw a softball and play defense. I am becoming a better softball player with each lesson.

Coach Greg is the most knowledgeable baseball/softball person I have ever met. If my daughter does the work, she is sure to make her high school team.

We want to thank Coach Greg for his efforts in building confidence and valuable skills in both our sons.
After two sessions, there is already a noticeable difference in the way they are playing. Further, they look forward to coming to "practice" every week!

Greg is great! He is really patient with my 9 year old son. My son has shown a lot of improvement. Thanks Greg!

Coach Greg has truly been a breath of fresh air for our son. He wanted to do some off season training to get ready for high school tryouts, and Greg has been the perfect fit. Easy to work with, flexible times and very knowledgeable. Our son truly enjoys his time with Greg and looks forward to every session. Thanks Greg, this is the coaching we were hoping for!

Coach Greg is great with my son. My son has shown a huge improvement in the few sessions he has had. It's been a great boost to his confidence. I highly recommend Coach Greg.

Coach Greg is wonderful! He's kind, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. Our 8 year-old needed help with many facets of his game, and Coach Greg has been just the coach to help him improve. We look forward to continuing to work with Coach Greg!
