More About Coach Jon

I am currently coaching collegiately and also have been a high school boys and girls coach for five years. Also, I have been a private instructor for the past five years focusing on all aspects of the game.

I played division 1 college basketball under legendary coach Bob Knight at Texas Tech University on a full athletic scholarship. I was an All-State member out of New Britain High School.

I've been teaching private lessons for five years now and continue to mold players into future stars. Sessions are generally one hour long. Overall skill development will be the main focus. However, if a client wants to work on a specific skills, I will accommodate them.

My 15 year old sons first session went great. Coach Jon helped his pitching delivery right away. Instantly found his flaws and pretty much fixed them. He cant wait for his next session. 5 star coach

Had a great first session with Coach Jon, who broke down my sons mechanics with some minor tweaks, that I could never have picked up on and my son saw immediate results, both in accuracy and velocity. Booked future sessions already!

Coach Jon worked with my son today, and we couldn't be more pleased. My son felt like he learned a ton in just one hour. Definitely a great and valuable experience which we look forward to repeating. I would highly recommend him for any young player.

Just completed my first session with Coach Jon, and I have to say it went extremely well. He explained things very well to me, honest and helpful criticism, I would highly recommend Coach Jon to anyone interested in getting pitching lessons. Will be scheduling more soon!

wow. Great first session. My son had such a great time with Coach Jon. He broke everything down for him. He can't wait for his next lesson. Bought only 5 sessions, but will definitely get more.

Jon is doing a wonderful job with my 17 year old son. Very knowledgable, patient, and detail oriented. My son is a pitcher who is starting to look at college ball and Coach Jon was brought onboard to ensure a successful entry into the college baseball arena. After 3 sessions so far, I am confident we made the right choice in this extremely important endeavor and pivotal high school year (Junior). We have chosen to proceed with 20 or so sessions. Enough said!

Great first session! Helped improve my child shot and break some of his habits. My son is looking forward to working with him again.

Coach Jon was awesome. Made an immediate improvement on both my boys and most importantly they looked forward to each and every lesson. Jon was responsive, professional, and easy to schedule. Cannot say enough good things about Jon and how great he was.

Great coach! Worked well with my son immediately. So far, so good.

I thought Coach Jon was excellent with my son Daniel. I know it was only the first session, but I thought his style of coaching was the right balance of basketball fundamentals, and friendliness that allowed for my son to feel comfortable with making mistakes. I think he will be a good fit. Great first session.

Coach Jon was great. He was knowledgeable, applid several great techniques which my 10 year old was able to begin applying immediately. Not only was he instructive, he was interactive and very personable which helped put my son at ease allowing him to focus on the training and all this was just with 1 session. I was thoroughly impressed.

What a great 1st session my son had, Coach Jon noticed the areas he needed to improve on and gave my son some great tips. I can't wait to see the difference at his next game. I would highly recommend Coach Jon, he is great with kids and he has a ton of knowledge to share. If we sign up for another lesson I will definitely request this coach again.

I took my nine-year-old son to see Jon because my son had been in a prolonged hitting slump and it was definitely affecting him. Jon was absolutely amazing with my son! In five minutes my son was not only hitting nearly every ball pitched to him, but he was hitting them with so much force! Jon was just perfect. He introduced three little tweaks to his batting (about one every 10 minutes), and the results were absolutely crazy. Jon also made sure that I knew what my son had been doing incorrectly so that I could keep an eye on it. I wish I would've had my son come to see Jon much sooner than I did. Towards the end of the session, my son even convinced Jon to help him learn some new pitches. Jon was happy to oblige. Now my son keeps asking when he gets to see Jon again.

Jon is a great coach. It only takes him 10 min or so to fix my kid's pitching woes. He is throwing much better now and is able to hit the strike zone consistently. My boy can't wait for his next session with coach Jon to learn from him.

Update..2nd session today. Jon is teaching my boy different pitches. ( per his request) while continuing to correct and improve his form. He is very positive and supportive throughout the session.

My son had a great time with Coach Jon. Coach Jon has alot of patience and he teaches while still making it fun for my son. You can tell he works with alot of kids. He has a great attitude and right away you can tell that Coach Jon knows alot about Baseball and especially Pitching.

Coach Jon is high energy and very knowledgable. My son Brad enjoyed his first session with him very much, he was actually tired after! He worked him for the entire hour. Brad said he is fun to learn from and looks forward to future training sessions with him. This was a great experience for my son.

Coach Jon helped my son in so many ways in just two sessions and our last is coming up soon! He is quick to teach in that he communicates perfectly to where my 8 year old understands what to fix and how to follow the direction and my son is able to grasp it quick helping him to learn even more. My sons biggest problem is remembering how to stand and hold the bat properly at bat every time and Jon fixed that for him. My son also has trouble keeping an eye out for the ball being pitched and helped my son figure all that out. I was seriously nervous at first spending all that money when my son needed so much help but it was completely worth it!! I will be getting more lessons every season now. Amazing teacher!!! Gives myself and my son hope for a great future in baseball!! Thanks Coach Jon!

Our son Alex had his first pitching session with coach Jon P today, after 20 minutes of coaching and giving him new pointer, my son had more confident and was throwing the ball with better movement. Coach Jon is awesome!!

Coach Jon was awesome! My son had a great lesson with him yesterday. I could see the obvious progress on my son of his pitching and hitting skill. My son said Jon is the better coach than any of other coach he ever had
No doubt. Pick Jon

Coach Jon is a terrific coach. He has tremendous knowledge of the game and helped my son with consistency, velocity and accuracy as a pitcher. He was also able to identify and work on pitching mechanics to prepare my son as he takes the mound this spring. He has a great way about him which adds to his ability to share and teach young men in the game of baseball.

Coach Jon is a great pitching coach. He worked with my boys, 9 1/2 & 11, improving their consistency and accuracy. He taught them how to pitch step by step and explained the reason to do things as he explained. He intermixed business of pitching with some humor which my boys enjoyed. Thanks Jon!
