HEAR WHAT OUR PARENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

My daughter wanted to improve her pitching skills and since we started working with Gina, I have seen a huge improvement with her mechanics and her confidence. 

 

I would definitely recommend this program to softball players looking to improve their game and confidence

Kelly Porcello

Parent of Fastpitch Athlete

We came to Elite because my daughter wanted to improve her hitting technique.

 

Since we started working with them, Kaitlyn's become a much stronger hitter.  She has also become a much smarter hitter and the improvements are showing on the field.

I would recommend Elite to all athletes that are looking to improve their game.

Craig Mayo

Parent of Fastpitch Athlete

We brought our daughter Raegan to Elite because we were looking for coaching that could improve her hitting and fielding.

Since working with Jo, I've seen her confidence and knowledge increase tremendously.  She switched from right to left-handed hitter and has been doing 100% better.

We love Elite and working with Jo.  She is very knowledgeable about the sport and is able to break it down so Raegan can completely understand it.
