"I assumed the program would be more playtime for him, but I was wrong, it is so much more. William has not only learned the rules of the game and improved his skills, but he has also learned about teamwork and cooperation. All while having fun and making friends."
"Lil' Sluggers is wonderful; the children learn all about the game and are not just thrown onto the field to play it. It has been a great experience for our children and we plan on keeping them as involved as possible."
The MacDonald's, parents of Amanda and Tyler
"My wife and I are extremely impressed and glad that we enrolled our son into Coach Jeff's Lil' Sluggers. We make it a point to take our son to the park fairly regularly and work with him on the basics. However, what Coach Jeff and his team offer is not only experience in teaching baseball, but the fundamentals which are so important and can be challenging to teach a 4 year-old. Coach Jeff and his team of coaches make the class informative and fun for the kids. They have a wonderful temperament and patience with all the kids. I would highly recommend to any parent. Thanks Coach Jeff to you and your team!" Todd and Trish, Gavin's parents
"My wife Jennifer and I cannot say enough about Coach Jeff and his team of coaches, and how well they interact with the children. Our 4 year-old son simply loves going to play baseball and seeing Coach Jeff. I have coached children myself in the past - to see how Jeff and his assistant coaches teach the fundamentals of the game, putting the players through drills, etc., but doing it in such a manner that the kids are still enjoying themselves immensely, is a balance that is difficult to achieve for many coaches of children of that age. Jeff and his coaches definitely have found that balance. I would strongly recommend Jeff and his Lil' Sluggers to any parent who is looking to introduce their child to baseball while also wanting them to have fun."
