Private Lessons

Choice Athletics offers year round private baseball lessons.

Private lessons are a terrific way for players to hone their skills with individualized attention and coaching. Our lessons offer a personalized approach to training and development, allowing players to focus on specific areas of their game that need improvement or general overall improvement.

Coaches may utilize HitTrax training system, Blast MotionArmCare, other systems, techniques, and equipment to help players improve their hitting, pitching, fielding, base running, and more.
