Our 9 year old son had a wonderful first training session with Coach Steve. He was anxious and Steve was quick to ease his anxiety. Our son asked us after the session if he could get lessons every other day! :) Steve was helpful and showed our son the basics, they continued with beginner's throwing, catching, and hitting. We look forward to more lessons with Coach Steve and watching our son improve. Thank you Coach Steve!

Coach Steve has a wealth of knowledge, patience, and drills to help any level of player improve. My 11 year old loves working with coach Steve! Coach Steve also desires his players to work on being a well skilled balanced player. Coach has also brought me into the drills which has made it even more fun for my son. (Me too!) thank you Steve!

Coach Steve was a great coach. My 10 yr old son Elijah, who just started playing baseball a couple of months ago, said he learned more in 1 session with coach Steve, than he did in 2 months. Coach Steve was real patient with my son, and made baseball fun again. Now my youngest son is interested in playing baseball. Looking forward to another session with coach Steve. 👍

Steve has a great demeanor and puts kids at ease quickly. Been a great find to help my son keep refining his skills and push him forward.

Coach Steve did a great job identifying minor adjustments to our son’s swing that greatly improved his hitting ability and power of swing. He also helped our son identify what the best pitch he should swing at to increase the chances of a hit.

Coach Steve was energetic and very relatable for both my son and I. My boy is 12 and loved the session, especially since Coach Steve had him switch hitting to his surprise.

Steve is a fantastic skills coach. His skill training has made a significant difference in his hitting and fielding in just two sessions. Steve also gave me fun skill practices Nicholas and I can do between sessions. Steve keeps it fun! (crucial for 7 year olds)

Coach Steve was knowledgeable, flexible, and engaging. He made training fun and effective. After one session, I see both of my boys using his training techniques and tips immediately and regularly as they play out the end of their season and prepare to try-out for the hand picked tournament team this summer. I can already see a difference in the way they approach the game, their throwing distance, and their accuracy.
I would recommend Coach Steve to anyone looking to improve their game, and better their personal best.

Very knowledgeable

My grandson, Matt, thoroughly enjoyed his time with Coach Steve.
Coach Steve made it not just educational but fun!

Coach Steve was great. He was really personable with my son and made him feel comfortable. He explained things in a manner that a 10 year old can understand, and my son was able to remember several of the points he learned. Coach Steve started at the most basic part of a ballplayer tapping into their confidence with warm up drills for success. By the end of the session, my son was really hitting with his whole body and driving the ball. When we left ,my son asked right away if we could do another session. He said," coach Steve was great", and he liked how he was coached.. So we will!

Steve is a great coach as he is good at making sure it is fun and has good ideas on how to keep the practice moving. In addition teaching the mechanics so when my son hits the field for the first time his confidence will be way up. The improvement just on the first 2 practices has been outstanding. We look forward to many more practices and game times in February

Coach Steve was great! Had really good advice and made the session fun. Looking forward to the next one!

Coach Steve did a great job with my son who is new to the sport. Almost immediately Steve had Jackson hitting better and improving his stance. Steve connected quickly and was just what we needed before the season .

Coach Steve did a good job with the kids. He was prompt and easy to work with. I would certainly recommend him to others.

Great lesson from Steve L.. Did a variety strength exercises appropriate for my son's age and developmental level.

I play third base for my high school. Coach Steve has been helping me with my position skills. His coaching has really helped me with my back-hand fielding and situational play. He has also helped me get more power with my swing.

My 7 year old son Carson had an incredible experience with Steve. It is not very often you come across someone with the knowledge, patience and kindness to work with little guys just learning the fundamentals of a new sport. Steve took the time to get to know Carson as a player and immediately identified his strengths and weaknesses. He was kind but assertive. We look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.

My son had his first lesson with Coach Steve today and loved it. He was so excited to share some of the new things he learned. Coach Steve was prompt in getting back with me to schedule a lesson, was personable, and did a great job relating to my son. We have worked with other coaches and they seemed more interested in watching the clock than actually caring about teaching my son, this was not the case with Steve. My son is looking forward to his next lesson!

Coach Steve has done a great job with our son. He is excited for each lesson & the knowledge he shares is excellent. He keeps each lesson interesting & fun. He truly cares about helping our boy succeed & improve. We are so glad we were introduced to him!

Coach Steve is nice and he has a lot of baseball insight. He made baseball coaching fun and easy. His teaching methods are good and I would definitely recommend him.

Good connection with my son. Solid, well-paced instruction. I'm pleased with Steve as our choice for coaching.

Coach Steve has been great to work with this winter. Our goal was to prepare for tryouts and the up coming season at school. Improving batting has been the primary focus. He had been able to assess my son's natural swing and then guide him to enhance that rather than trying to teach a different one-size-fits-all technique. He has given him specific things to work on each session and we can certainly see a difference. Not only that, his confidence is increased as Steve is so encouraging. This has been a good match.

Steve was fantastic. My 10 year old son really enjoyed his first session and we have already booked 5 more. Steve was very positive as he was coaching, which made the session not only informative but fun as well. Thank you

Coach Steve have me great advice, most stuff I had never heard working with highschool coaching staff, he's already improved my ability to hit after one session and I plan on seeing him again.

Coach Steve does an outstanding job! Worked on all skills - hitting, pitching, catching.

Coach Steve is a great coach. I learned so much in just my first session and highly recommend him to anyone trying to better their skills!
