our mission

Going Yard will only provide only the most professional staff and resources available. Developing fundamentals, improving performance, and teaching kids how to carry themselves on and off the field is the sole purpose of our Instructors. Our instructors have had success at higher levels not only as a coach/instructor but a player themselves.  

​Success is taught from success.  In reality not every kid will have the opportunity to play collegiate or professional ball.  But every kid can be the best they can be.

​Private lessons is a way to allow your kid that opportunity to be the best.  Our Instructors understand how to help each player reach their maximum potential at every level of competition. Every Instructor will have a player/coaching bio you can review. Please contact us if you have any questions on instructors or lessons.
For the serious ballplayer looking to improve his/her game Going Yard will offer numerous camps and clinics all year.  Mini summer and Christmas camps cover fundamentals on all facets of the game.  In addition to private lessons, off season and preseason clinics will be conducted giving each player the opportunity to gear up for the upcoming season.  All training programs will be for softball, baseball, and age specific. For example, one program will be offered to school ball players getting ready for the season where another program will be offered to new softball pitchers that want to learn how to pitch.  There will be many programs to choose from that fits your player’s needs.
Our mission is to provide a facility that develops, improves, and produces the best softball or baseball players in the state.  With our year round facility and professional Instructors, each player has the opportunity to reach their maximum potential.  These will result in improving softball and baseball as a whole. By improving the competition it provides more opportunities for kids to win more championships in local park & recs, travel teams, and surrounding schools. Not to mention attract attention from college and professional scouts. Our main goal is to help every ball player become the best they can be. With our programs, resources, and professional staff we will develop kids not only in skill and talent but in character as well.  We emphasize on being a STUDENT athlete. Going Yard is just a small foundation in developing young athletes to successful men and women. Any and All kids are welcomed.  From the beginner, the all-star, and the player who strikes out every at bat.  We will give our best to each one equally.  Every kid can get better and its our job to see that happens.
