The Art of Instruction

Before reading about the details of the programs, I wanted to let you know how we treat each player at MSA. We don't believe in any "one size fits all" philosophy in hitting, pitching or any other aspect of softball or baseball. We evaluate each player individually and use our years of experience to help each player improve. We see teaching the skills as an art that should be fit to each player, not that the player should be squeezed into a particular style or philosophy.

If you have any questions about the programs below please contact us by phone or e-mail.

See you soon!

Chris Harrison

MSA offers instructional lessons to help beginners just learning their sport, all the way up to professionals fine tuning their skills. Our baseball and softball instruction focuses on all aspects of the game including pitching, catching, fielding, hitting, speed, and throwing, as we try to elevate your game!
