More About Coach Kent

I have coached for 25 years from 10u through college level softball. I give private hitting and pitching lessons to all age groups. Focusing on perfectly optimized mechanics, muscular balance and coordination along with power and strength. I use slow motion video along with Motion Pro software to analyze hitting and pitching mechanics. Using slow motion video I’m able to expand the student’s strengths and develop new areas of skill.

Just as every athlete tends to communicate differently, their learning styles are often unique as well. In order to improve learning, it is essential to appreciate individual players’ learning preferences. This requires a tremendous amount of flexibility. Certain athletes may best learn a technique or movement by having a coach communicate it verbally to them in a step-by-step approach. Others might best learn the same movement by observing a demonstration, avoiding the confusion of verbal instruction. Finally, some athletes may learn the movement best by experimenting on their own without the interference of a coach’s demonstration or verbal instruction.
You can begin to recognize these differences by listening and observing responses to your attempts at communication. The challenge is for you to communicate with respect to each individual athlete’s learning style. By giving the athlete that respect, they often pay closer attention to what you are communicating. As a result, the coach-player relationship grows stronger and chances of success on the field also expand.

Coach Kent was great and very easy to understand.

Kent is an awesome coach. He provides detailed explanation in concise manner and help my daughter understand importance of her techniques. He is easy to talk to and never hurries the sessions. I highly recommend Kent!

In just one session my daughter already had noticeable change in her batting. She really could see where she needed to start focusing her attentiom after the slow motion video taken today on her second session. Made her excited to actually see what she needed to improve on. Thank you for such attention to detail!

Coach Kent is great. He is an experienced high school and college coach and really knowledgeable. He does a good job of explaining the mechanics of pitching so you understand why you are doing certain things. He can also coach you on batting and other aspects of the game.

Kent is an outstanding hitting teacher. He clearly knows his stuff and is well equipped at his place for expert instruction. He has a nice batting cage with pitching machine and a slo-mo video camera. He is patient, even with a strugging Old Guy like myself, and gives excellent feedback. I learned a tremendous amount from him on my first visit, which I am now working on. It was a great experience. I look forward to continuing to work with him to improve my hitting.

Great experience with Coach Kent! He conducted a thorough evaluation of my daughters skills, ran drills to help weak areas and developed a training plan to improve her play. He somehow managed to cover it all within an hour. Thanks, Coach!

Coach Kent has been amazing to work with! Ashley has attended three training sessions so far and in this short amount of time, her overall skills have improved beyond my expectations.
Coach Kent's teaching philosophy clearly centers around encouraging his students through positive reinforcement, repeated drills and self correction. His patiences to take the time and slowly break down each step has enabled Ashley to further develop her skills and gain the confidence in herself and her ability to play softball.
I highly recommend Kent's training sessions for anyone interested in advancing in their Softball skills.

Kent is encouraging and energetic. He instilled technique as well as confidence in my daughter. The before-n-after difference in her game is something that even a non-expert (i.e me) can readily observe. The sessions never felt rushed, and Kent takes the time to bring the instruction to a logical conclusion in each session. Highly recommended.
