I have worked with young players 4-24 since 1999. My patience and unique ability to see the movements of the player and be able to make the adjustments through drills is a learned skill. I have given 1000's of lessons to 100's of players of all skill levels. I am very straight with the player and parents when it comes to helping your player improve. This takes hard work on both the player and the instructor. You are guaranteed 100% of my efforts and my knowledge of the game.

"Building Legacies One Player at a Time" is my motto. My goal is to not only teach the player to play the game but to love the game the way I do. If I can build the passion for the game in the player their ability to learn to play this game is much easier.
What do I enjoy? Watching that player become something special in life.
“We were so fortunate to find Pat Berglund when our daughter, Hadlee, needed practice batting. Hadlee took individual batting lessons from Coach Pat for two years and her batting improved tremendously! Hadlee thrived under Coach Pat’s instruction. Our daughter lacked confidence when batting and coach Pat gave so much encouragement she quickly improved. He taught the skills and techniques she needed for better batting which gave her the motivation and drive it takes to be a good softball player! Paula Harmon Woodward, OK
“Pat is one of the few facility owners that invests in the people. When you work with him you quickly see the passion for the game, but more importantly his passion to grow people! This is a rare find in the coaching world. You won’t find a better staff and owner.” Craig Snider Asst. Coach Florida State University Softball, Former Instructor "Legacy Sports Academy" Edmond OK
Evaluate with Video.
Breakdown the video with player and parents.
Create a lesson plan and set up the homework & lesson schedule for the player.
It takes 4 visits/lessons with homework to see noticable improvement in my experince. If a student doesn't improve the way I think they should I give extra time or don't charge for a lesson.
I have been giving lessons since 1999. I did not play baseball after HS in college or Pro's. (I was wrestler on scholarship) I have however studied the game for many years as a coach and have a unique ability to teach the process to help players improve. I owned a baseball academy for 10 years and have done 1000's of lessons. I have had the opportunity to work and learn from several professional coaches, Scouts, college coaches, and MLB players.
I charge $40 per 1/2 hour. $80 per hour. I do 2 hour Team practices for $20 per player minimum of 10 players or $200. I leave the coach with the practice plan to replicate.
I was helping a young player in my garage and his father gave me 50 bucks for an hours work commenting that I should charge for my lessons because I was able to recognize flaws in his sons swing within 15 minutes and make adjustments for immediate help. He had been seeing an X-MLB guy that hadn't made improvement in over 6 months. Some guys do this for the money I do it for the Love of the Game and helping young players. I thankfully get paid doing what I Love.
Boys and Girls from 4 years old to 24 years or college age. I have worked with a few minor league ball players during their off season.
I Fished in the WON Bass open in April of 2018. This was my first Pro Bass fishing tournament. I took 15 place out of 158. Earned some money and caught an 8 lb bass and won a second check. Outside of baseball and family this was a cool event.
Make sure you are prepared to work as hard as I do teaching you to learn the game. I give 100% of my efforts teaching you. You will need to give me 100% learning the game. Then we will get along great.
I am happy with all questions. There aren't really any bad questions and they should try to learn to think through all their questions. As far as needs of a ball player... it is to get better no matter what their skill is today.
