Private Lessons 

Private lessons have become a big part of baseball. Players are always trying to find that edge and lessons have become a very useful tool in assisting players reach their goals. Players above the age of 7 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.

 

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 is a game 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 overnight. 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.

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.

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 is a game 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.

TSI Baseball Camps & Classes are designed to help improve the performance of baseball players of all ages and skill levels. Campers will receive instruction from coaches who have played or coached at advanced levels such as college and the professional level who care about the betterment of each individual player.

“My son has been a catcher all his life, but had never been taught the finer points of the position until working with Coach Peyton Fulton.  From blocking, framing, to becoming quicker and improving game speed awareness, my son’s skill set has improved drastically under Coach Fulton’s training.  Many have noticed and expressed favorable comments about my son’s increased skill level as a catcher over the past year. We recommend Coach Fulton for catching lessons and classes.”

Tom S.

“Working one on one and in a clinic setting with Coach Fulton has really improved both his skills and confidence at the position. Having someone with a catching background focus attention on my son’s specific strengths and weaknesses has been very beneficial. Coach Fulton was able to drill down to footwork, speed, and strength components and develop practices to move my son to the next level as a catcher.”

Laura S.

“I have observed Coach Fulton’s coaching and teaching abilities over time, and I am impressed how well he tailors his strategies to the individual, thus empowering them to attain higher levels of excellence. Peyton instructed me in my catching abilities using the best and newest techniques passed down from Major League Baseball that he explains in a way that is clear to understand. Peyton exemplifies the best principles of coaching, in that he is adept at accentuating positive skills to compensate for less developed skills in his players.”

Matt. H – Lenoir Ryhne ‘10

This class is designed to encourage and teach a well balanced approach to pitching.  Whether the proper arm care techniques, throwing program, or developing a mental approach, this class will provide the routines, drills and disciplines taught to help prepare you for the next level.
