Small Group Lessons

The membership subscriptions will feature multiple group lessons per week (no more than 4 players per group). These small group lessons allow players to get full attention from the coaches for high quality lessons while working with a peer. These lessons help players receive fundamental and advanced instructions for their mechanics in a small group atmosphere which helps players relax, work together, and have fun. These lessons are structured by the coach and may revolve around specific baseball areas such as hitting, pitching, baserunning, fielding, power, speed & agility, arm strength, and many more!

We had a great experience with WBA. The coach quickly established rapport with my grandson and was able to share his expertise in a very effective way. We are looking forward to continuing to work with WBA.

WBA was awesome with my 7 year old. Our coach went over technique for batting in easy steps, and in our first session alone my son improved 110%! Because of the coach’s approachable personality, knowledge, and skill set, my son already has more confidence moving forward. Thank you!

WBA was great with my 10 year old son. The coach broke his swing down into understandable steps and gave several tips on his throwing. It was easy to continue practicing at home to increase his skills. Our coach related very well to kids. I would recommend WBA to anyone looking to increase skills in hitting or throwing.

In just one session he improved catching, hitting, and a love for the game! I’d definitely recommend WBA and look forward to seeing the improvement for our son through more time.
