More About Coach Shannon

I have been coaching various youth sports for 35 years and have had more than 100 athletes continue their athletic career in college. I am the founder of the Clearwater Lakers Softball Club(Missouri) and sponsor four youth fast pitch softball teams every year. The Lakers play in ASA, FASA, and USSSA fast pitch tournaments and leagues. We have had 36 girls receive full athletic scholarship offers in the past five years. I have recently relocated to Lawrenceville, GA and am interested in staying involved in fast pitch softball coaching.
I also own Midwest Sports Video which specializes in making Skills Videos for high school athletes in pursuit of a college athletic scholarship.

I graduated high school from Oakhaven Baptist Academy in Memphis, TN. I lettered in varsity track, football, baseball, & basketball my sophomore, junior, & senior years. I received all-conference, all-district, & all region awards in track, baseball, & basketball.
I accepted an athletic scholarship to attend Southeast Missouri State University where I ran track.

The first session is an assessment of an athlete's all-around skills. Depending on the sport, I am going to put them through drills that a college coach would put them through to get an idea of what skill level the athlete is at. After the first session, I will create a written plan on how to improve on the athlete's weaknesses and to also refine techniques of the athlete's strengths.

Coach Shannon is a great coach. As a begginer just after two sessions my daughter learned techniques and is building self confidence. He has a passion for teaching and my daughter is not only learning how to play but to like the sport. After last session she asked me to continue the classes with him because she really likes the way he teaches and motivate.

Just had our first with coach Shannon. We were very pleased with him. Our daughter also liked him which is always a plus when student likes teacher. He already had things to teach her that she didn’t know. He’s very knowledgeable.

Great coach my daughter learn more from him then she's learned in the past 2 coaches In one session

Coach Shannon is providing top-notch training and knowledge that will help optimize my grandson's skill set on and off the field! After only 1 session, we can already see a tremendous difference in his confidence, fielding, and hitting. I really wish we had invested training with a personal coach, years ago.

Coach Shannon has been coaching my 15 year old son for a few weeks. Not only are my sons skills improving, but he is also gaining confidence. He is hoping to make the high school baseball team and with Coach Shannon's coaching I have no doubt he will make it.

I have a 12u travel team and Coach Shannon has been coaching 3 of my pitchers for several sessions now. I attend each girls weekly lesson and I am amazed at the improvement of each girl week to week under Coach Shannon's guidance. He is very in touch with the need of each of the girls and details each lesson to their ability level. I also love the feedback I get after each session which gives details for each of the girl and what they need to work on throughout the week. I would highly recommend him!

Coach Shannon was patient, kind and very informative with not only our 9 year old but us as well! We look forward to future sessions!

Coach Shannon is an awesome teacher/coach!'nBecause of him I can now watch my daughter and know what to look for. He gave my daughter tools and techniques she will use to improve. We will definitely have future sessions!

Great coach

Great start to what we hope will be a lasting relationship!

Coach Shannon is definitely a seasoned coach and great teacher He complimented and corrected which is invaluable when you have a novice player.

I really enjoyed training with Coach Shannon. We split our time between offensive and defensive drills. Coach Shannon specifically helped me with defensive footwork. I feel more confident after our session. At 35 years old I certainly don't fit Coach Shannon's typical student profile but he can help anyone that wants to compete and improve! I highly recommend Coach Shannon!

Coach Shannon is amazing; has a lot of patience with my 9 year old granddaughter who really liked him as well. He gave us drills that she can practice at home to help with her training. I would highly recommend Coach Shannon!

Coach Shannon is a great coach. My son loved working with him. He treated him like a grown kid. He gave feedback and training tips in terms that were easy for my son to absorb. He didn't overcomplicate things and he didn't try to tear everything down and start from scratch. We were looking for someone that could point out issues my son had and help to improve upon them. I will definitely be booking another session with Coach Shannon.

Coach Shannon has given my daughter a great start on her road to college tryouts. With continued practice and lessons, she should be ready. Love his approach to her positioning and footwork as a catcher. Coach Shannon makes practice and lessons so much fun.

Coach Shannon was terrific. We see improve mentioned already just after one session. His drills and tips are invaluable. Looking forward to another session.

Coach Shannon is Great! Our daughter is 6 and went from being a right handed hitter to an all left handed slapper/batter. With Coach Shannon's help she has adapted to her new skill with amazing progress! With his help she made the 8u travel team at 6! He also went above and beyond and attended her travel tryout! He gets an A+ rating from us !

Coach Shannon was a great coach .

I am so pleased to recommend Shannon Thomas. He is dedicated, professional, detail-oriented, and very knowledgeable about attracting the attention of college coaches for your student-athlete. My son, Matthew, is a junior golfer. I had no idea what to do and where to begin in the recruiting process. Golf recruiting is very different than football or basketball recruiting. I was very comfortable with Shannon right from the beginning. He drove to Cleveland, OH, met us at Sleepy Hollow Golf Course while Matthew played 18 holes of golf. My son had the best time with Shannon. He was very professional, caring, and offered some pointers on the game! We like having Shannon as our personal recruiting coach. He enthusiastically answers all of our questions, which we have a lot, and in a timely manner. So far, Matthew has been contacted personally by four coaches and has over 20 interested in him. I am so happy I contacted Shannon. I highly recommend him for all your recruiting and coaching needs.
My daughter Ericka played softball for Shannon Thomas last summer, where we got to know Shannon pretty well. He is dedicated, honest, caring, intelligent, and a great family man! While Ericka was playing with him he asked her what she wanted to do after high school, Ericka replied back she wanted to play college softball. With us being completely clueless on how to get started, Shannon lead us in the right way. At this time, Ericka has 2 college visits already scheduled, with 29 other college coaches interested in her. Shannon answers any questions Ericka or I have to ask him, and most important, he listens to Ericka on what she wants out of a college. I am so happy Shannon has came into our lives. He's helped tremendously and I know he would do the same for you.
Hey Shannon, I just wanted to thank you for posting all the videos and all the quality work you have done for me. It has truly made a difference and got my name out there. Right now I am packing my bags because in the morning I will be officially signing to become a Baker University Wildcat on a very large scholarship! Thank you again I couldn't have done it without all the help. Wish you nothing but good luck and success in your business.
