"With Matt's help, Logan has developed into one of the areas top pitchers which enabled him to be recruited by many Division 1 Colleges. Logan has recently accepted a scholarship to play at Stanford University in 2012."
"Matt has been Craig's pitching coach for the past 6 months. In that short time period, he's made a real difference in his game. On his first visit, Matt began breaking down pitching to its fundamentals. He was not interested in how hard he threw; he was interested in his mechanics, focusing on the basics. Matt has taken a genuine interest in his pitching. He's been a very supportive coach and often calls him after his games "just to see how it went". Craig respects Matt and looks forward to his lessons. Craig has become a better pitcher; not only due to his strong desire, personal commitment and dedication but also from the coaching he has received from Matt. Thank you Matt!"
"Matt has sharpened Luke's pitching skills, his potential has grown tremendously. He has done more than just pitching lessons but has mentored Luke on attitude, grades and nutrition. This was some of the best money we have spent to date."

How will individualized instruction help my son/daughter?
Each player learns at a different pace. Individualized instruction allows time for Matt to teach the player how to make physical and mental adjustments to their playing level.
What other types of instruction are provided?
Individualized programs are developed for each student. Based on their initial assessment, it may be suggested that some players follow a fitness and/or nutrition plan which will assist in the overall development of the player.
What if my child is complaining of arm soreness or has had previous injuries?

After rehabilitating for one season, he came back stronger than ever. Currently, he provides these services to several collegiate athletes.
