More About Coach John

I am a former Division 1 college baseball player and lifetime student of the game. I have managed/coached competitive youth, teenage and adult baseball over the past 25 years. My expertise is in the areas of hitting, pitching and first base. I will also work with players on improving their fielding. I teach fundamentals but also incorporate many added elements designed to enhance performance, build arm strength, improve the mental part of the game and ultimately build more confidence. I also instruct on ways to effectively adjust to the larger 60/90' baseball field.

Client Reviews

Coach John has been a great coach. My son is learning a lot from him and I can already see improvements at game time. He is able to breakdown his techniques so that my 10 year old can understand them and apply them when he hits. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for instruction.

Great coach!!! Super patient and knowledgeable!

Great working with Coach John. Very

We've had one session so far with Coach John, and it has been extremely helpful for my son who is new to baseball. My 8 year-old had two hits this weekend at his game and his form has improved greatly. We are looking forward to our future coaching sessions with Coach John!

Coach John is very experienced, has excellent advise and works well with young players. He also gets in touch with us very quickly when it comes to setting up a session and is accommodating with times for sessions. He gives us a review after each session and has also given us information on drills to practice during the week in between his lessons. My son also seems to like him very much, which is important for getting my son to follow instruction. We are very happy with our decision to work with Coach John.

Coach John is excellent! This is the second year that he works with my son before the season on hitting and pitching. Coach John is very knowledgable. He is awesome and patient when he is correcting my son's mechanics. My son improves with every session. My son has learnt so much from him and I would highly recommend Coach John to anyone!

Coach John is an excellent coach. He worked with my son on hitting technique and the results are incredible. John also teaches fielding, throwing/pitching and overall baseball theory. He is patient and loves what he does. Will be booking more sessions for sure.

Coach John is one of the few coaches who is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of baseball. He is patient and is so good at what he does. I feel very lucky to have Coach John coach my son. Some coaches only have knowledge in hitting or just pitching,but Coach John has knowledge on every position. He explains the reasoning behind the training. If you are looking for a true coach, Coach John is the one. He also helps to make sure that confidence is instilled in what my son does.

Coach John is extremely skilled at conveying helpful techniques and approaches regardless of the age of the student. In one session, he provided fantastic feedback to my 12-year-old son with respect to his lower half when hitting. While we were waiting for our session to begin, I watched him guide a teenager in high school through various exercises designed to maximize his showing at an upcoming try-out. Coach John had just the right approach, demeanor and advice for each of them. Coach John has a lot of experience and baseball wisdom — more importantly, he knows how to impart it in ways best suited for each individual he trains. That’s no easy task, but one that is most valuable.

Coach John is a great coach. Knowledgeable and excellent at helping improve your game while also keeping things simple. Would definitely recommend.

coach john was punctual and he is very professional

Coach John was a great coach. My son learned a lot about perfecting his swing. Coach John was knowledgable, patient and fun!

My son has now had 3 sessions with coach John. I went and had a hit and a throw with my son for the first time since he’d started his coaching, and the difference was remarkable. I’ve never seen my son hit like that and it’s been 3 lessons. Very happy with Coach John thus far. Most importantly, my son loves the coaching sessions.

Coach John was patient with my son, and gave him good take-away tips to practice before our next session. I would definitely recommend him.

My 13yo son has gone to Coach John three times now. He is a very respectful, patient, nurturing and competent coach. He has reviewed mechanics and gone over all aspects of the game. He is also very forward thinking and encouraging about the future. I wanted my son to work with someone to restore his confidence, and Coach John has definitely provided that boost. This is why we keep trekking from Brooklyn to see him!

My son has learned a lot and always enjoys his coaching sessions with John. John is very personable and professional. We appreciate his ability to connect and communicate effectively with our son. We definitely recommend him as a coach.

Coach John is great. My son loves working with him and he is looking forward to working with him again.

John is knowledgeable and offers great advice. He is very patient and takes his time with you. Looking forward to learning more with him.

Coach John is amazing! He spends so much time with my 10 year old son and gives wonderful constructive feedback. I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Coach John was a great inspiration to my son this afternoon! He broke down his swing step by step and encouraged my husband to take pictures and videos! He really went above and beyond and was not only professional and super knowledgeable but friendly and encouraging as well. We look forward to booking more sessions soon! Thank you!
P.S. the minute we got in the car my son asked when he can train with him again :)

Coach John works very well with my son. He goes above and beyond to teach him the fundementals in all aspects of hitting, pitching, and fielding. My son leaves the session feeling confident and smiling.

Great lesson - as usual with my 14 year old son
John knows how to explain things, reinforce them and to make it fun

I found Coach John to be not only extremely knowledgeable, but also very friendly and easy going. My LL age son can be quite shy around people he does not know and by the time our first session was over he was engaged, excited and enthusiastic about his next lesson. I highly, highly recommend him.

Coach John helped me with alot that I will use to improve in my mechanics. Really looking forward for more sessions with him.

My son and I really enjoyed our first coaching session. We saw improvements right away in my son's batting and throwing. Highly recommend Coach John and just booked a second session.

(no details provided)

Very meticulous and detailed coach, not afraid to point out flaws, but in a very constructive way. Coach John is able to work on almost every aspect of the game, and has a very vast knowledge of the mechanics and techniques of the game.

Coach John was great! He gave my 8yr old a good training lesson and valuable tips. My son is looking forward to the next session.

John coached both of my sons Justin (9) and Dylan (7) this summer 2017. It was a great experience for myself and my boys. John is very patient with kids and really understands teaching the fundamentals of baseball but also makes it fun. My older son was struggling at the plate during his Spring baseball season but is now 5/7 at the plate in his Fall Baseball League thanks to Coach John! And my younger son started on the mound for his team and did great as well. I highly recommend Coach John.

Coach John is a great coach, first session he was very welcoming to my son. He focus on what he needed work on and he didn't make my son feel bad about his weakness. If your child needs some extra help in baseball I would definitely recommend Coach John.

Coach John is amazing with my 9 year old son he is attentive, dedicated to the game, patient and brings out the best in him. He is encouraging and focused on seeing him do his best. Lessons are focused but fun! Highly recommend him.

Coach John is great! He really cares about his athletes. He clicked with my son right from the first session.

Coach John was very patient and positive for this new to the game player. We can't wait for our next session with him.

From just one session it's very clear that coach John is an excellent teacher. Coach John was very patient and clear with explaining the details on areas where 10year old needed improvement. We are looking forward to scheduling another session with coach John very soon .

Coach John was professional and spoke to our 10 year old son in a way that was easy to understand when teaching. He was so excited after his first lesson and can't wait for the next!

Coach John was excellent. Covered all the bases (pun intended! ). Spent a lot of time & was very patient. Well worth the investment for my 11 year son. Covered many aspects of hitting, throwing, pitching & the mental aspect of the game in one session. Looking forward to the next one! Highly recommended.

Coach John is a fantastic coach. He was very friendly, professional and easy to get in touch with. Very easy for my son to talk to and learn from. After the session he had my son hitting better than ever and now my son is eager to continue and improve his skills. I would recommend Coach John to anyone.

My son had had other private pitching lessons but John was the best pitching coach I've seen by far. He has been able to teach my 13 year old son pitching and hitting mechanics in a way that is easy to understand. Sessions have been fun and a great use of time and I have seen my son improve greatly due to John's coaching.

Prior to my son's first coaching session, I spoke with John several times to find the right time and location that was most convenient and weather permitting. He was very easy to reach and I really appreciate his persistence, initiative and willingness to make necessary arrangements to meet at a great local field. He's very personable, patient and professional. My 15-year old son came away feeling like he learned some new techniques in batting, both physical and mental. He had fun and definitely wants to continue working with John. Great fit!

After just one session I can tell John is a great coach. His level of kindness, patience, and passion for the game is what all coaches should strive for. His knowledge and experience are evident as he can help in improving every facet of your child's game from hitting, pitching, and fielding to the mental aspect by instilling confidence.

Coach John S. was really helpful working with my son who is on his HS baseball team. He fixed a problem with his throwing motion and improved his consistency with his hitting.

Coach John is awesome!, according to my son who is 9 years old. After one lesson he confident about his approach and he has his batting plan. I like the way he teaches basic essential moves. Looking forward to more lessons.

Coach John has been unbelievable. He has been working wth my son Christopher who is 8 on hitting,fielding and pitching. What I like the most is the way he breaks each drill down in a way Christopher understands it. Im so thrilled with this experience that my son is receiving. Thank you Coach John

John is a knowledgeable, patient and professional coach. He quickly identified areas of improvement and worked with my son to help him understand how to adjust his form mechanically.

It was definitely worth the drive from Brooklyn and my son is looking forward to meeting with him again. Thanks John!

Coach John is great. His coaching explanations were at an age-appropriate level (my son is 11). He was encouraging and positive even while correcting area's where my son had already developed bad form. We had only booked a single initial session to see how it would go - on the way home my son raved about how much he learned and couldn't wait to have more coaching sessions.

Coach John was impressive. In one session he worked on my sons batting, pitching and first base basics. The batting drills showed IMMEDIATE results in his hitting. We can't wait for his next game. We will now spend a week working on what he trained on and looking forward to the next session which we will focus on Pitching. I would HIGHLY recommend coach John. Do like I did take one lesson and if you're not totally impressed don't come back. I know I will be back. Thank You Coach John!

Our experience with Coach John S. was really great. He's focused and patient. He was great at both positively reinforcing the stronger aspects of my son's hitting, and pinpointing exactly where and how he could improve. By the end of the session, he'd made great progress. John S. is excellent.

Coach John is fantastic !

Quote from my 9 year old son "Coach John is a great coach. He really knows how to explain things so that they make sense to me." After a handful sessions my son seems much more confident on the field as well as at the plate. He had his first 3 for 3 game, along with 3 RBI's recently and earned the game ball. If your child is interested in further improvement in the game of baseball, I highly recommend Coach John.

Coach John has done wonders for my son in hitting and fielding. he is by far the best instructor he has had. I would recommend him to anyone. what an improvement in my son over the time he spent with him. We are very satisfied .

Coach John has been amazing with my son! My son has made outstanding progress while working with John. I notice improvement in my son's skills after each session. Most important my son looks forward to his sessions with Coach John and has a great time.

John has been an extraordinary teacher for my son. He breaks down the fundamentals of the game in a clear and easily comprehensible manner that does not force a hitter to think about too many ideas at once. He has instilled confidence in my son and John has a genuine interest in my son's success.

Coach John, worked with my 9yr old son. He gave him confidence and ability to believe in himself. His coaching and teaching are Instrumental for my son success and desire to work hard. To be the best player he can be!
Thank You,
Coach

Before taking lessons with coach John, I was hitting at the bottom of the lineup and I couldn't hit a ball with any authority and i was rolling over many pitches. After taking many lessons with coach, I am now the lead off hitter and he completely turned around my hitting for the better. Unfortunately I didn't find coach earlier. I highly recommend coach John.

Coach John has been the best coach I have worked with. Coach John is always coming up with new drills to greater develop my batting skills, and eliminate bad habits. I was a mediocre hitter who didn't have much confidence in his abilities, but with the help of Coach John i have been able to gain confidence in myself, and more importantly hit like an elite player. My coaches have even spotted the difference in my swing after I began working with John, they moved up to the four spot and with John, nobody will be taking me down. I am a Freshman at St. Francis Prep who, thanks to coach John, has been promised a starting position on the varsity team. Anyone who knows of the difficulty of a Freshman playing varsity at St. Francis Prep knows that a player has to be good. If you are a player who is searching for a coach to take you to the next level Coach John is your guy!!!!!!

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to play.
Thank you for your great leadership, positive spirit and love of the game.
Thank you for all of your terrific coaching and instruction.
Thanks so much for all you did in helping him get an invite to the practice. He is very excited to have been asked to play with the team.
Thanks John for being a true professional all season long. The kids love you.
Thank you for your time with the boys - they loved the lessons.
