My son and daughter have been taking lessons at In The Zone for the past 3 years and I’ve seen tremendous improvement in both of them. All of the coaches that we have worked with have been great teachers with my kids, and make learning the game fun. As a result, my kids are always excited to come to their lessons and always leave with something new that they can work on. I would recommend In The Zone for any parent that wants their son or daughter to build the skills that will help them excel on the field.
Sam Fearse- there are not enough wonderful adjectives to describe her, her commitment not only to softball, but also to the development of players. My daughter Rachel has grown so much as a pitcher because of Sam. Not only has Sam introduced new ways of doing old things to her pitching repotoire, but has allowed my daughter to grow in her hitting and mental game as well. Sam Fearse is the real deal! Her vast knowledge of the game, as well as her pitching knowledge and all around skills training is something we will never ever forget. Sam is easy to work with and knows how to get the best out of her students on and off the field.
Our path to In the Zone came by way of a search for a baseball recruiting video service. We were pleased to contract and receive a product that was unique to the many recruiting video services out there. Marcus Ippolito was approachable and of great value in what can be an exhausting process. Of importance was that he did not push the services of In the Zone despite being the owner. As a result, we inquired about hitting lessons for our son. Coach Taylor was remarkable with a serious, passionate, and knowledgeable approach. He spent the necessary time evaluating my son’s strength, agility, natural mechanics, stance and swing. Once evaluated, Coach Taylor communicated the changes necessary to elevate his hitting with tangible videos of MLB players hitting and began the work to alter a swing and hip motion that has “worked” over years. Though my son is not a big talker, he is a big observer and used the tools to continuously build on the lessons with Coach Taylor despite the tweaks feeling totally uncomfortable. The results were big – culminating in more elevation of the ball, more power in his swing, and balls out of the park! Definitely a good investment.
I can ramble for hours about how wonderful ITZ has been for our daughters but in short – you’re never going to find a better place to take your child(ren) than ITZ. You’re not going to find more dedicated, caring, supportive coaches or staff anywhere else. ITZ has created a place where if you’re ready to work, learn and focus..they will be there to train, support and teach you all things softball and baseball. I cannot thank them enough for all they do for my daughters.
Michael has been trained by Taylor for the past 2 years and his skills have grown exponentially due to his teachings. Taylor’s training has helped Michael excel to make the knights team and led him to be a key contributor to winning the championship. Taylor’s knowledge has taught Michael life lessons he can use on and off the field.
My son has being taking private lessons with Tony for 3+ years. He began when he was six and could not even field a simple ground ball. Now, his team just won a championship! Not only does Tony support him in baseball, he also takes the time to ask him about school and life outside of baseball. Tony is dedicated, knowledgeable and motivating. He pushes him to do better but is also so much fun. My son would see Tony everyday if he could! Tony is the epitome of what you want as an instructor!
My daughter was in a year-long slump when she started hitting lessons with Coach Amy. Not only did she help her with hitting, but also with her self esteem. She is a phenomenal coach and mentor! My daughter will now be playing at a D3 college. Without a doubt, Coach Amy had a huge part in her being able to accomplish her dream!
