PRIVATE HITTING LESSONS


IN DOWNERS GROVE / DARIEN AREA!!


 

 

My programs are simple: I will combine your goals as a team or individual with my expertise to recognize any biomechanical weaknesses and go from there. I will observe and correct any biomechanical errors in order for the players to have the most efficient movements possible. Unlike many other instructors, I incorporate mental strength and visual mechanics into every lesson.

1 - 4 lessons = $35/half hour (pay as you go)

5+ lessons = $30/half hour (paid up front)

1 hour lessons = $50 

 

- These are outside rates. Indoor lessons are $10 extra.

-See "Events" link on left of site for Calendar.

 

See the “News” link on the left for more information on how the first lesson works!

Testimonials:

 

"Sharlla has been my daughter's hitting coach for more than three years.  My daughter is 14 years old, plays on a 16U Elite travel team that plays in several tournaments, including PGF and college exposure tournaments, and she consistently hits every game. Sharlla's one-on-one hitting instruction has enabled her to successfully hit off any pitcher (fast or slow), as Sharlla has trained her to track the ball and adjust the timing of her swing based on pitch location and pitch speed. We highly recommend Sharlla as a hitting coach/instructor as her expertise & ability to break down a batter's swing has produced AMAZING results!" -Mom of 14U player playing for a 16U team

***

"When my daughter decided she wanted to make the transition from in-house to travel softball at age 11, I was concerned that she would have a tough time. Fortunately, we found Sharlla. She was able to correct my daughter's swing and teach her how to bunt, fake bunt and swing, drag bunt, and slap. At the beginning of her first travel season, my daughter was at the bottom of the batting order. By mid-season she was a dependable, versatile lead-off batter. Sharlla instilled, in my daughter, a confidence at the plate that I never thought was possible in such a short period of time. --Mom of current DuPage Pumas 16U player
