Our son has had the good fortune to have Nick Davey as
his pitching coach here at All Stars Academy. Although only with Nick a short
time, our son’s improvement has been tremendous. The pitching lessons are not
“cookie cutter” lessons – each week the lesson is distinctive, with
special emphasis on our son’s need as a pitcher. During the lesson there is a
discussion about mechanics, game strategies and the mental aspects of the game.
Nick doesn’t just talk at our son-he involves our son in discussion,
encouraging him to capitalize on his strengths, analyze his weaknesses, and to
strive to better himself each and every week. There has even been occasion for
throwing to “live batters” which uniquely couples working on
mechanics as well as game tactics. We are truly happy with our experience with
Nick Davey and All Stars Academy.
