Better yet, here’s what our students and their families have to say:
"Coach Holbrook, I appreciate so much the support you have shown to Will since he met you. I think he trusts you and believes that what you teach him is correct. I also think he is comfortable talking with you, that is really important.”
“We LOVE you guys. Moose ended with an AMAZING batting average and was a great catcher this past season.”
“My son took a series of five batting lessons with Matt, which gave me the opportunity to observe Matt's teaching abilities for a total of more than two hours. Matt is one of the best teachers I've ever seen. He is superbly competent in his subject, batting, which almost goes without saying, since subject competence is necessary but by no means sufficient for excellence. Matt's excellence can be summarized in two words: patience and precision. "Patience" here means much more than a simple willingness to wait. It means that when Matt was teaching, his attention was on his student and the skills they were developing together. Matt always made it seem as if the work he was doing with Aubrey was simply the most important, indeed the only, thing Matt could be doing. So not only is Matt patient and soft-spoken in the usual sense, but he demonstrates a focus of attention and presence of mind that makes the student feel truly valued.
So what's Matt focusing on? This brings us to his other great quality: precision. His criticism was always constructive, not in the empty feel-good sense of building self-esteem, but in the real meaning of constructing student skills. Matt's patience, as described above, is a necessary precondition for his precision. Because he focuses on his student, Matt is able to give precise, measured, accurate feedback to improve student performance. And in my son's case, performance improved.
Matt deserves to be in that elite group of superb teachers. His competence, patience and precision combine to make him one of the best I've seen. He's an asset to Players Edge, and a gift to students lucky enough to learn from him.”
“Coach Kent - Jess has been at Varsity try-outs all week and it looks like she's going to make the varsity team as a freshman! Thanks in-part to all your help! She'll be playing catcher and left field. Her hitting has really improved.”
“Just a brief note to say that I was told that Quinn had a very strong tryout prior to his making the sophomore team. He is a pitcher, and an outfielder on his team. I am just writing to thank you for your training, and for your Knights program, because I believe it was instrumental in preparing him for tryouts. His team is a very strong group.”
“We had our first practice today. Joshua was eons ahead of the others on his team. It was nice to see how far a winter of lessons can bring him at this young age. Also, we had our coaches orientation led by another organization the other day and I was not nearly as impressed with their approach like I was yours. They are keeping things extremely remedial as opposed to your approach which was to teach it correctly from the get-go, even though it takes a bit longer for them to grasp.”
“We want to thank you for helping give Asher such a fantastic party. I know with 22, 8 year old boys, it can be extremely hard to reign them in, but your guys do an amazing job at keeping the boys moving, organized and having the best time. You really went out of your way to accommodate for the many late arrivals due to the snow storm. You really made it worth while for people to make the trek out that night to celebrate Asher's party. Asher absolutely loves the game of baseball and you guys do a wonderful job of helping him to foster this love with his private lessons.”
“Alison (she took classes with you on Sundays during the winter) made Freshman A team softball at Stevenson. Thanks for helping her learn the game!”
