BASES offers a wide range of instructional options for all levels of athlete from beginner to advanced. An instructor evaluation session may be offered for any athlete under 7 years of age interested in getting personalized instruction. The purpose of the instructor evaluation is to ensure that your athlete will benefit from the instruction process before you make a significant financial commitment. This evaluation will consist of two parts; 1) an interview with the athlete and parent(s) to determine needs and experience level and, 2) a 15 to 25 minute performance review of the atheletes basic skill set (i.e. hitting, throwing, fielding, running, power hitting). The cost for this evaluation is $20. If a lesson or lesson package is purchased, the cost of the evaluation will be applied toward the athlete's first session. If a student has previously participated in professsional instruction or a previous skills evaluation at BASES, we reserve the right to decline the courtesy of the evaluation process.
Lessons at our training facility are more than just "teach and show" sessions. Our instructors have access to an extremely powerful tool called Right View Pro Video Analysis software. Most instructors will incorporate the use of video analysis in their regular lessons. The degree of video use is up to instructor preference and the specific needs of the student. There is NO EXTRA CHARGE for the video instruction that is part of a paid lesson session.
A single lesson or lesson package can be tailored to focus on a specific area of interest or it can cover a variety of skills, depending on the athlete's needs. We may recommend a particular instructor based on the athlete's sport (baseball or softball), age, skill level, commitment, and needs and the strengths of the particular instuctor. However, the final decision on selection of an instructor lies with the athlete and parent.
Rates will vary based on length of lesson and type of lesson. Semi-Private (2 students per class) or Group (3 - 4 students per class) instruction will be more affordable but may not always be the best fit for a particular student. Each decision should be an individual determination. Rate ranges are supplied in the column to the right. Specific lesson prices will be quoted after determination of type, class size, and number of lessons. Discounts may be available for certain multiple lesson packages and when using apprentice instructors.
