Not only will I teach your kid the proper mechanics of hitting, I will help them to understand the strategy and the psychology behind becoming great. In the field, we will work feet and hands. My number 1 goal is for your kid to look like a stud. That may sound shallow, but trust me...kids that look like they can play, usually can. I have also seen plenty of goofy kids that can play. If I had to choose between the 2, I am taking the one with good feet and hands all day long!
I love seeing kids gain confidence doing things they didn't think they could do. I also really enjoy pushing them outside of their comfort zones. For me, it is not just about "having fun," it is about getting better and hard work!
Matt coached and worked with my daughter at a young age and taught her Very strong basic skills. He also taught her a excellent work ethic which has stuck with her over the years and has helped push her to the next level. Thank you Matt.
Attention to details and creating a good foundation for athletes.
My daughter was relatively new to the game when Coach Matt came into our lives. She was doing ok for a beginner, and then Coach Matt poured into her. He took my daughter from “just okay” to helping her prepare to be scouted for college in less than a year. With Coach Matt’s help, her swing went from “barely making contact” to knocking them out of the park. He helped her go from maybe being on the junior varsity roster to a regular starter on the varsity team. He transformed her fielding skills and pitching skills and helped her to believe in herself more than ever before. She always looks forward to her time with Coach Matt, and that means more to me as a parent than I could ever begin to express. My daughter has a real future playing college ball, and I can guarantee that wouldn’t have happened without the help of Coach Matt. Thank you Coach!!!
I have not trained at Ignite however I have coached and worked with Matt for over 8 years. He is a master of the technical component and more importantly an excellent and compassionate communicator. Can’t wait to get to Ignite someday soon!
We will get in the tunnel or on the field and go to work. We will interact while we work and I will figure out pretty quickly were they are at and what we are going to work on. Each kid is different and I don't have a cookie cutter approach.
For nearly 10 years, I have head coached and helped coach at many different levels. From High School to the most competitive travel ball teams to the most basic beginning level of rec. I know how to ratchet it up or down based on the make up of my student and the level they are playing at and are wanting to play at.
