The Hitting Academy has literally become our home away from home! We are here five days a week, most weeks! They truly care about my son and his success! Pete, Blake, Ryan, and Julius at the Clearwater location have become like family. There truly is nobody else in the world I would trust my child’s baseball journey with!

So thankful for Coach Rob and the staff of The Hitting Academy. My son has been been training there for 10 years and they have worked with him through every step of development. Can’t say enough positive things about them. All three are quality, air conditioned facilities.

I signed up my son, Alex, with the hitting academy about 5 months ago and the improvement in hitting and pitching has been amazing. The coaches are GREAT!!! Not only are they great at teaching, but they are also great at motivating them to be the best! Thank you Dominic and Kevin, you two are the best!!!!

Coach Rob and Coach Alan use video to break down my sons swing and make tweaks to improve performance. They have done a great job illustrating what he needs to do and why it works better. He has had a great relationship with the coaches and really believes in the system. This is not your typical glorified batting practice – but more of a true “swing coach.
