Hello, my names Tanner Negrette.
I played baseball for just shy of 18 years and have been coaching for about 6 (paid and volunteer). I teach fundamentals in all defensive positions, hitting, and the mental side of the game. All share their own importance in the game of baseball so I like to talk and teach all aspects of the game throughout our time together.
I will not only teach the fundamentals of playing baseball, but also work on the mental aspects of the game, sportsmanship and being a team player. I plan to encourage good characteristics such as leadership, courage, respect, and passion for the game. I put importance on family as well as faith / religion into my coaching style, and teach my kids about the process of working hard to become exceptional at obtaining the goals they set forth.
Its nice to see kids put in the effort and get better at something they're working on. Also a rewarding feeling to help my players make a high school / college team.
I was looking for an instructor who could help my son refine his fielding skills and ended up finding Tanner. Tanner knows his stuff and has a sharp eye in pointing out different things that my son can improve on. He teaches a lot of great techniques and explains why my son needs to change a certain thing so that my son understands the reasoning. Knowing a fair amount myself and having seen a number of different instructors/coaches, I can say that Tanner is the best one that I’ve come across and would definitely recommend him if you are looking for great instruction from someone who cares about having your kid improve.
I like to find out what their strengths and weaknesses are in their own words. Then we can go into the fundamentals of whichever position they choose / hitting fundamentals. Visual learning and the mental side of baseball are important to me, so I use videos of both MLB players as well as other kids / players i’ve coached in the past.
I am about 6 years into coaching. From 6u travel ball, to High School assistant coach in 2018, as well as private lessons w players at the professional level today I have been involved in the game for about 21 years in total.
I charge $45 for a half an hour session or $60 for an hour lesson. After the first lesson, I offer a package that is $300 for the next 6 sessions.
I been around the game since the age of 4, after playing I realized I enjoyed teaching what I knew and learned over the years of playing.
I’ve Worked with kids as young as 6 up to the college / semi professional level. I was the assistant coach at my alma mater in 2018 at Pacifica High, I worked specifically w our infield where we had our best team fielding % since I graduated in 2012.
Look for a coach / teacher that matches your personality as well as understands what you want to achieve as a player. Be honest with the coach / parents / yourself to get better in whatever aspect of the game you’re looking to improve.
What are my strengths and weaknesses in the sport, and also what do I plan to accomplish or get out of the training I receive.
