Instruction

HitStreak provides instructional programs for players of all ages and all abilities. A description of each program is listed below.

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

Private instruction is offered on a one-on-one basis to allow for a  customized program for the individual.   Instead of following a curriculum, the HitStreak instructor can cater the instruction and training specifically to the individual.   Instruction is available in all aspects of the game including hitting, fielding, catching, and pitching.  Lessons can be 30 minutes or 60 minutes long and lesson packs can be purchased for discounts.

WHAT DO YOU RECEIVE?
  • Personal 1 on 1 attention
  • Explanation of Fundamental Mechanics
  • Video Analysis (Most instructors)
  • “Home work” drills for self learning and habit forming

Parents are strongly recommended to attend for the following reasons:

1] As an accountability partner for the player.  
2] To reinforce the teaching outside of the private lesson
 
Pricing– $50/30 minutes             $95/one hour
Package pricing available in 4 and 8 packs (30 minute sessions)  $190- 4 pack   $360 – 8 pack

GROUP INSTRUCTION

A group is considered “more than one player.” Group settings are ideal for players that are the same age and/or about the same ability. This allows for a lower price point per player and a fun, competitive atmosphere.  

Group pricing is only available in one hour segments and only applies to 2–4 players only. For groups of 5 players and up to 12 players, see Team Pricing.

Pricing  – $150/hr (includes the price of the cages)

TEAM INSTRUCTION

Team instruction can involve an organized “team” or simply a large group of players (5 or more, limit of 12) wanting instruction.  For groups larger than 12, a customized program can be designed.  

Team pricing – $100 per instructor per hour (plus cost of cage rental)

CLASSES

HitStreak offers different classes throughout the year on all aspects of the game.  They are normally held in 4, 6, or 8 week increments and are held at the same time and same day every week.  Our class ratio of student to teacher is limited to 8:1 for maximum player development.  Please see our class page for details on upcoming classes.

                   Connor Spear

Chicagoland area born and raised. I spent this summer playing baseball in Washington State, and on my way back to the midwest I stopped in Colorado. Well, I haven’t left since! 

I was fortunate enough to have a successful baseball career at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Throughout my college career, I fell in love with the training side of baseball development. I’ve dedicated a lot of time as a student to the game, and as I start to train in hopes of signing a professional contract in the spring, I’m looking to give back to the game by sharing the knowledge I’ve gained over my career to the next generation.  As serious as I am about baseball, at the end of the day it’s a game meant to have FUN. I love to share my love of the game with others in a fun and productive way.
