  • J.R.

    Working with Coach Marc has been a great experience. He is a very knowledgeable coach with a passion for teaching. Our son has really improved on his baseball skills while working with Coach Marc.

  • Roger L. Neely

    Very true to his word teaches all from beginners to really good ball players he also goes over and beyond he just don’t charge you a crazy fee then leave your child in a batting cage he is one one with your child and after his lesson this coach will call you afterwards and do a video session with you no added fee coach Mark is an awesome coach .

  • Bill Baker

    When I was researching a baseball instructor, I was looking for qualities such as passion for the coaching, patience with kids as they learn, and a love of the game baseball. Marc checks all theses boxes. As a dad who isn't a "baseball coach", I found Marc's instruction easy for kids to understand, yet informative for parents to learn as well. I highly recommend Marc.

  • Michael Hillesheim

    Excellent and appropriate drills and focus for age level. Positive instruction that kept the kids trying to get better. Hitting and fielding drills that are simple and provide building blocks to put it all together.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

First, you need to  determine what your specific goals and priorities are.

Find someone who understands the process and how to offer progression based training. Its a process and buidling blocks are required. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Determine your specific goals and areas of development

Are they committed to a process...(there are no shortcuts)

Ask themselves why they feel they need outside instruction
