PLEASE, make contact with your coach via email or phone prior to scheduling your first appointment. Appointments may be limited.
Advice from a Coach:
"When contacting a coach make sure to introduce yourself, your child, their age, their current skill set, and your needs before attempting to schedule a lesson. Tell me where your players skill level is at, and a few other details about the style or method of coaching you are looking for - think slapping vs. just hitting, etc."
