$20 Pitching Evaluations - MonthS of MAY-DEC 2020
My daughter Chelsea has been seeing Coach Jill for 7 months now. She started working on my daughters pitching mechanics. She is a professional coach who does require a lot of practice. Coach Jill believes in my daughter and is not only teaching her great pitching mechanics but she is also teaching her to have confidence on the mound, to believe in herself. Not only do we have a 30 minute lessons with coach Jill once a week, we also have an online account that we can post videos to of my daughters practices or games footage where she will provide feedback. Jill is a great coach and if your daughter is willing to work hard, practice during the week, and has the desire to improve on her pitching I would recommend Coach Jill to coach your daughter and take her to the next level.

I can’t express into words how helpful Jill’s instruction has been for my daughter. In the short amount of time Lex has been seeing her she has increased speed by 2mph! Considering it’s only been 4 weeks since we decided to make a coaching change, that is incredible. A few mechanical changes and WOW! I am confident that Jill’s ability to relay information to my daughter’s 10 year old brain will take her to the next level! I am so happy to have such dynamic training for Alexa. We are lucky to have her.

She is a great coach. She has made a great impact on my daughter Giselle since day one of her pitching lesson. She not only improved on her mechanic and speed, but she truly boost my daughter’s confidence. Love her coaching style. Thank you Jill!

Coach Jill is amazing! We got here because Sydney was struggling. She had lost her confidence. Jill did not sugar coat what the problem was, her mechanics. We have painstakingly took those apart and are rebuilding day by day. These days it’s moments of frustration but no longer do I see a lack of confidence. Jill gave her the tools to build on, as we continue to work. I cannot begin to Express the gratitude I have for Jill! I look forward to see what’s in store for this next year!

Code red is awesome:Jill is an amazing instructor very detailed about pitching mechanics,leg strength,arm strength,and fundamentals. Our daughter Danielle loves going to see her and when our daughter thinks she gots it down Jill always takes it to another level. Which is great because it teaches our daughter to compete every time she’s on that rubber. Thank you Jill for your hard work,patience and dedication that you give to our daughter. Can’t wait to see what’s next!!!

If you are looking for a great coach you came to the right place. Coach Jill is a excellent instructor! She can see what your daughter need to work on after one lesson. My daughter has been going to her for about a year now and "WOW". Watching her pitch now and seeing her confidence, is the best feeling to have as a parent. Coach Jill is great with the girls and knows how to talk to them. If you are looking for a pitching coach you came to the right place and wont regret it!

Jill is awesome with our daughter. We love the fact that she breaks down the mechanics and takes the time to explain the why...we love the new option to send video for additional help when needed. She communicates in a timely manner. Thank you Jill for working with our daughter and making her the best she can be.
Lorraine (10u La Habra)
Coach Jill has lots of experience and great with kids. Very thorough in the way she teaches, insuring that both my daughters know the proper mechanics on the positions they are getting taught. All I can say is WOW! My girls look forward to each lesson. Thanks Coach Jill !!!
My 9 y/o girl just had her 1st lesson with Coach Jill (I drove over an hour to get to her). She loved it! Coach Jill is very patient yet firm with the kids. She definitely wants the kids to improve and be on top of their game. I will post more reviews as time progress.UPDATE: Coach Jill is very fast paced with her coaching style. She keeps the kids focused and time just flys by during her sessions.Coach Jill also sends her feedback/recap after every lesson. She is very detail oriented with her feed back. I have my girl read the feedbacks before every lesson as a recap of what she needs to improve on.1 MONTH UDATE: Coming from ZERO experience pitching, my girl is starting to look like a pitcher! She still has a few issues, however, Coach Jill will identify and address them as she sees fit. She will focus on correcting and drilling the issue. Coach Jill has been superb especially when I choose to practice under the sun during the hottest time of the day to simulate real world conditions.2-3 Month Update: We are indoors now!! Coach Jill has obtained exclusive rights to coach at an indoor facility and it is definitely more comfortable for the parents. As far as progress, Coach Jill introduced a few velocity and accuracy drills to help increase speed and accuracy. So far I've noticed the velocity increased 3-5 mph on average and accuracy has improved 15% to 18%.
We are so happy that Jill will be giving Madeline pitching instruction. She has a lot of experience but more important is her ability to teach in a way that my daughter understands. We have heard wonderful things about Jill and after one lesson we can understand why she is so respected. We can't wait to watch our daughter grow into the pitcher she wants to be.
Hello Jill, We just want to thank you so very much for helping our daughter with her pitching this year. As you know, she only took lessons to “try out pitching”, but in the 2 short months that she has worked with you, she is already pitching at the level of our leagues veterans. She is in love with this position and is pitching wherever she goes! And because of your teaching her body mechanics and preventative maintenance, she is teaching me about how to take care of her arm. I also want to thank you very much for attending Hailey’s game. It meant the world to her that you were there cheering her on, especially since we had to attend our other kids games. Your coaching Hailey has really made her “like” for softball, become a “love” for softball. She is becoming more responsible and making sure she warms up properly. That’s all because of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! The Skullr Family (PYL)

She will prepare them and teach them to play with passion.
