Each movement is broken down into pieces and each piece is trained individually through a variety of drills to help create new and correct habits. When each movement becomes consistent and the player has a good fundamental base, we move onto the skill portion of the lesson. This allows a player to implement the skills and mechanics covered in the drill phase. Each player is then given specific things to work on at home to allow for a positive progression from week to week.

I am also an active credentialed teacher in San Diego and utilize my expertise in student engagement to increase the athletes retention, application and comprehension of the the skills they will learn. Not all athletes are the same and not all students learn the same. I will find what works best for YOU.

Great lessons

Kevin knows how to analyze players based specifically on how they are performing. He is patient and is full of great info and techniques to improve targeted skills. I highly recommend Kevin for coaching baseball.

Coach Kevin had so many good pointers and took his time with my son to give him ideas for catching. We will be continuing the 1 on 1s

Coach was great. Very informative. My som already has learned a lot

Kevin is awesome. He really connected with my kid and got his confidence up after what’s been kind of a discouraging season so far. Helped with his pitching and hitting and gave him some stuff to work on. Highly recommend working with him!

Coach Kevin was great! He identified my son’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as suggested exercises on how to improve pitching. My son said that he learned a lot

Coach Kevin is awesome! My son learned a lot just from the one lesson we have had so far and can’t wait till his next lesson. Kevin is very friendly and great with my seven year old son. He made sure that my son understood the drills and what he needs to work on during the week. As a parent he was also great at explaining the drills and skills so that I made sure he was practicing correctly. Highly recommend Coach Kevin. I feel my son is going to learn a lot from him.

Great attention to detail, with practical take aways to continue to work at home.

I booked 2 sessions for my 8 year old to get him ready for Minor B assessments in January. Kevin was great with tuning hitting, throwing and fielding mechanics with corrections that my 8 year old could start using right away. I noticed his hitting power and throwing velocity increased instantly when Kevin made some adjustments. Additionally, his fielding tips helped get him in position to make more accurate throws after ground balls.

I'll preface this by saying my kid's been playing kid pitch the last two years and plays multiple other sports, so I expected him to do well during the minor b tryouts but he outperformed his group in each drill. In an environment where you have only 3 attempts at each drill, I don't think he would have been nearly as prepared or stood out without Kevin's help.

I plan to book a few more sessions once practices start to continue working on fundamentals that my son can apply to his team practices. Kevin's got a great rapport with kids and my son loved the sessions.

Coach Kevin, is a very good Coach. He takes his time and goes over detail calmly. The first visit I notice my Son picked up on a few key batting details and also he improve his fielding . Diffidently would recommend him to anyone ..

David Smith.

Wonderful experience! Great with my son and gave him tips on how to remember the things they worked on

So far so good! My 12 yr old son just had his first hitting session with Kevin and I'm starting to see positive changes already. I like how Kevin is breaking down the mechanics and giving my son just a few things to work on at once. We're both looking forward to the next session.

Coach Kevin is great! He gave my 10 year old son a great lesson with tips to improve hitting and playing catcher. My son loved the experience and can't wait to go back for lesson 2.

Coach Kevin was great. We had a great session today working on technique. I would recommend Coach Kevin to anyone looking to improve their skills.

Kevin was an AMAZING coach. My 10-year old absolutely loved his teaching and coaching methods. Kevin provided positive reinforcement and motivated my son to be a better baseball player. Kevin focused on fundamentals of batting, stance, and swinging correctly. My son wants to continue to be coached by Kevin.

Kevin was great. He diagnosed what I was doing wrong with hitting. I am now trying to practice the advice he gave me. We spent the first session entirely on hitting. Fielding and throwing will be next. I hope to do well at my upcoming Fantasy Camp in Mesa, AZ in January, 2019. His minor league professional experience is apparent.

Coach Kevin is great! My son really enjoyed his session and can’t wait to learn more. Coach Kevin really gets to know his players and can individualize his approach with everybody. He truly loves the game of baseball and wants to share his love for the game with younger ball players. Such a positive and fun experience all around.

1st session was great. Lots of knowledge. My boy is a lefty n Coach Kevin shared some great insight into the mechanics of a left handed hitter. Usually a good sign, when the coach turns away for a second and your kid looks at you with a big smile and says, "I like this guy, he is really good." I will Repost after several more and update stars as we see predicted improvement. Huge improvements seen across the board thanks coach Kevin.

Coach Kevin was very helpful with my students, making detail adjustment and giving clear instruction.
With experienced high school coaching experience, he certainly can guide kids' way to college!

We are very happy so far!!! Our son has enjoyed learning & meeting Coach Kevin! Excited to see the results come baseball season .

My 12yr old son really enjoyed his session with Coach Kevin, looking forward to the next one, helped a lot with his hitting with a lot of great suggestions.

Kevin was a great coach for my 14 year old son. He worked on hitting and throwing and found my son found his style to be very easy going, productive and understandable. My son appreciated that Kevin built upon what he already had going for him rather than breaking him down and starting over. His experience really showed and we would definitely book additional lessons with Kevin in the future.

Definitely recommend Coach Kevin! My son connected with him immediately - his personality, his approach to teaching, his guidance - Coach Kevin understands baseball technique and how to communicate effectively with our son to help make the adjustments and changes to improve. Very happy we found Coach Kevin!

Kevin exceeded all expectations! My son had been away from the game for awhile but Kevin brought his skills back in one lesson through an incredible knowledge of fundamentals. One son also had a great time, looking forward to the next lesson.

Awesome first practice session, highly recommend, and cannot wait for next weeks session.

Very impressed with the level of detail in my son's first session with Kevin. He took the time to explain everything they worked on. I would recommend Kevin to anyone.

Great Coach worked well with my son.....

Great session for my 11 year old son. We had a difficult time finding someone knowledgeable and that could communicate well with my son. Kevin did very well with both and my son walked away with absolutely noticeable improvements after one 1 hour session. He fixed my sons throwing mechanics within 5 minutes and gave him excellent tips on his batting mechanics. I would have no issues recommending Kevin to anyone. We are very happy with his coaching and will return for more.

Outstanding Coach! Coach Kevin provided valuable insight necessary to obtain consistency on the mound.

We had 1 lesson with Coach Kevin and he was phenomenal with my son! He learned so much and he's so patient and made sure my son was having a great time while playing the sport he loves! We can't wait for more lessons!

We have had 1 session with Kevin. My 11 year old son felt very comfortable with Kevin right away. Kevin communicated well with him and spent time to understand what my son and I wanted out of our time together. He effectively analyzed the mechanics of my sons throwing, the catching position and hitting and gave some clear, concise, actionable changes that really helped. I look forward to continuing to work with Coach Kevin. His background, knowledge and personality are a perfect fit for what my son and I were looking for.

Kevin is awesome with my son. Very patient, and he explains things in a way that the younger kids get it! Very happy with Kevin!

Coach Kevin is a great coach!! I improved my batting skills greatly only taking his lesson once. I would recommend him to anybody that is willing to improve their batting skills.

Coach Kevin was great. He spent time reviewing every aspect of the lesson right down to getting my son to repeat what he had learned. At the end of the lesson I asked Kevin to take a look at my sons throwing mechanics. In 5 seconds he figured out what was wrong that 5 years and many coaches couldn't do. We are so glad we found Kevin. Bonus: My son went 2-3 in his next game playing up in a 12u division, both hits went deep in the outfield. We will definitely continue with Kevin.

Coach Kevin conveyed a lot of information in a short time span. Do keep up and you'll get a lot out of it. Also, he's personable and engaging.

Coach Kevin is a great coach. My son can't wait to work with him each week. He is very good with the kids, patient and always makes my son laugh and have fun during practice. He is a very knowledgeable and professional coach. Highly recommended.

Coach Kevin did a great job working with my 9 year old son. He know knows how to communicate with a child in a language that works well for him. He is a great coach and I would recommend him.

Coach Kevin did a great job on our sons first session. He did a great job communicating with our son.

Coach Kevin is a great coach. He's helping my son with all aspects of catching. He has an extremely high level of knowledge and great approach to teaching. We are thrilled to be working with him.

My 9-year old son has had only two (2) sessions with Coach Kevin, and is already so much improved, and feeling so much more confident with his skills. My son has years of bad habits to break from Little League play, and Coach Kevin has addressed them very positively and with such a great outlook towards a young player. I signed-up for five (5) sessions, but will most likely add more. Coach Kevin's style not only works incredibly well, but my son very much looks forward to the sessions and has a great time. I would highly recommend Coach Kevin.

Kevin is a very knowledgeable and top notch trainer. We could not have chosen a better person to work with my son. At Connor's first session, Kevin identified multiple problems with his swing and a flaw in his throwing that no one realized he had. We had a narrow window of nine days to work with Kevin and he went above and beyond to accomplish as much possible with Connor. Kevin has a true passion for baseball, his expertise and understanding of the game is remarkably advanced. Connor can be slow to warm up to people, but he immediately felt comfortable with Kevin and was able to start the learning process right away. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who wants to improve their baseball skills.

Kevin Reinking is a true professional, and outstanding individual. His long career in professional baseball; and his attention to detail coupled with his ability to connect with teammates and coaches makes him a perfect candidate to help any player at any level. During his time with the San Rafael Pacifics, Kevin was a pleasure to have in the clubhouse, on the field, and in the community. His work ethic and professionalism was a constant example for the rest of the organization.
November 16, 2013 To Whom It May Concern: Kevin Reinking was my personal trainer for over a year, and I have known him in the capacity of personal trainer to others for over three years. His job was to motivate and teach me, and others how to take care of their physical bodies through exercise. He was able to push and encourage me to go the extra mile to keep my body healthy and my mind focused. He did this with a firm hand and a sense of humor. Not only did Kevin teach me to take care of myself physically, but he was a good listener, as well. He made sure that I was mentally prepared for the work that he would have me do. He communicated with me about all of the exercises that we did and answered all of my questions about how they would make my muscles react. This all shows that Kevin has a talent for teaching. I observed him while he worked with many people of all ages, especially the young men who played football for the local high school. He was articulate and easy-going, able to work with each one as an individual. Sincerely, Alicia Majkowski
November 15, 2013 To whom it may concern, It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Kevin Reinking who I have personally known for four years. During this time, Kevin has coached and mentored my twin teenage sons in baseball. Kevin was able to clearly identify and evaluate their abilities and formulated an effective training program. This helped play a critical role in advancing them to the next level of their performance. Kevin’s engaging nature and genuine desire to help kids achieve their potential is what makes him a natural coach and mentor. He has always demonstrated exceptional patience and professionalism. Kevin has tremendous interpersonal skills and is easily understood by both kids and parents alike. Having played baseball at very sophisticated level, Kevin did an amazing job of translating that knowledge into simple analogies that could be easily understood and implemented.
