Private Coaching

A great way to get tuned up for the upcoming season is to meet with a private coach and work on developing certain skills with the one-on-one attention that a player may not get in a team practice.

Each private lesson is a one-on-one specialty skills practice with a Dallas Hardball coach. DH coaches are current or former NCAA Division 1 baseball players that have been hand selected based on baseball knowledge, coaching style, and their own unique abilities to connect with and educate youth ballplayers. Currently, lessons come in 30-minute to 90-minute intervals. Shorter lessons are best suited for training one general category of skill, such as hitting, or fielding. Longer lessons allow sufficient time to add additional skills. Half-hour and full-hour lessons are typically better for younger players such as 7U or 8U, to work with shorter attention spans. Please note that there is a 24-hour cancellation policy for any scheduled lesson. Also, please do not book lessons for the same day unless approved by the coach.

Lessons are sold individually and in packages that are discounted and allow for scheduling in advance. Save by buying one of our coaching multi-packs here!
