The Bullpen Philosophy
The idea behind the Bullpen when it was first created back in 1990 was to offer year round instruction to boys and girls so they could develop their skills through muscle memory but also working on building their self confidence level.
Starting kids at a young age helps lay the foundation so bad habits are not picked up. The longer a bad habit goes without being corrected, the longer and harder it is to make the correction. We have our Junior Program for younger kids to start them on the right path. Remember the training facility is not only for highly skilled players who are looking to play College or professional ball. It is for all kids at any skill level. We group kids in classes that match their own skill level.
The Bullpen can work as a quick fix if that is all you are after, but if you would like lasting results year round training is the only answer. I personally have seen kids improve by 100% from one year to the next by enrolling in our Fall and Winter Maintenance Program. If you think that by taking two Months of lessons your son or daughter will turn into an All-Star overnight I would have to say that that is almost impossible.
Our student to instructor ratio is second to none. The Bullpen has three students per instructor in the area of hitting and four students per instructor in the area of pitching. The reason is to promote learning. A smaller class means more attention can be given to each individual student. We have found that adding just one or two more students in a class will drastically reduce the learning curve.
