I have had college coaches tell me they stop by the Channel from time to time because the PITCHERS on the channel are College caliber. In keeping with the integrity of our students on the channel the students has to pass the 4S test and be in the 8th grade. The cost is a private Lesson plus an Editing Fee of $70.00
We are proud to say we are one of the few pitching coaches that can and have started a student at 8-9-10 years old and still coach them in college! Click on the clips to the right. I will be updating the clips so everyone can see what a Danielle de la Porte, Omaira Estremaria, Megan Gross, Veronica Giddens, Amy Cucinella or a Marissa Drewery looked like at 8,9,10 and then in high school or college. The improvement is unreal!
We are located at Rainbow Fields. We have 3 dirt mounds inside the Academy and 4 dirt mounds in the back. We have 1 cameras permanently located in specific angles with a computer station and TV monitor. Students need to bring their cleats, glove and a good softball.... We strive for the student to learn under positive instruction. Good Luck, Jimmy
