INDIVIDUAL INSTRUCTION

Individual Instruction is beneficial for any player looking to improve individual skills and mechanics rapidly.  1-1 Instruction provides a fully customized coaching environment that identifies strengths and weaknesses for the individual player.  

Silver Sluggers Academy provides Individual, Small Group, and Team Instruction to players of all ages and levels.  Instruction is customized to fit the needs of each player.  Skills trained include Hitting, Pitching, Catching, Throwing, Fielding, and Performance Training for baseball and softball.  The Sluggers 360° Philosophy includes motivating and mentoring each player to be successful on and off the field.

Our coaching experience sets us apart from other baseball and softball academies.  Brad Woodall, owner and lead instructor, draws from his 5-year major league experience with Hall of Fame players and coaches as well as over 2 decades of coaching youth players.  Brad and his coaching staff teach the latest fundamentals, using innovative drills and technology to assist in the learning process.

Most importantly, we motivate each player to develop a consistent work ethic for ongoing improvement outside of our instructional sessions.
