Private lessons have become a big part of baseball and softball.  Players are always trying to find that winning edge and lessons have become a useful tool in helping to achieve that. Players above the age of 5 usually have enough comprehensive skills to benefit from taking private lessons.  As their ages and abilities change so does the baseball material and workload.  Players of all ages and abilities can benefit from private lessons as long as they are dedicated and eager to work hard.  Below is a question and answer section about private lessons:

1.  What should I expect out of private lessons?  Private lessons are a great way for players to develop consistency as they learn the proper mechanics.  Baseball and softball are games of repetition and 1 on 1 instruction is a great way to repeat as well as reinforce.  Spending time in these training sessions is what best helps us prepare for competition.  Our instructors are dedicated experts when it comes to maximizing each player's individual skills.  The player must understand though, that private lessons are a continuous project.  Lessons are not a quick fix where you become a superstar over night.  Professional players work on their skills all year round.  Creating that consistency through a lesson schedule is long term project that players need to be prepared for.

2. Who should take private lessons?  Anyone can take private lessons, but the real question is who will benefit most from taking lessons.  The answer is simple; "The players who are willing to work hard through dedication and sacrifice are the players who will achieve success."  Instructors teach private lessons to help communicate the information that players need to improve.  What the players do with that information is ultimately up to the player themselves.  Any player who is dedicated to improving their skills can benefit from private lessons.

3.  How often should I schedule private lessons?  There are many different scenarios to scheduling private lessons.  The simplest answer is you need to set up your lessons on some type of consistent schedule.  A player will not benefit much if he or she is coming in once every couple of weeks.  Again we talk about repetition.  Baseball and softball are games of repetition which is why players need to be training on a consistent basis.  Some players feel they need to come in several times a week and others only once a week.  The most important thing is that you are coming in consistently.  If there are long gaps in between your lessons there is a good chance that your mechanics will suffer.
