Are you looking to improve your game? At KGS Baseball, we've given thousands of lessons to youth athletes and collegiate players alike. Our approach to in-person instruction is our ethos: "Keep the Game Simple". We will work to enhance your skill, mindset, and output on the field by communicating high level information in a simplified and efficient manner. Whether you're looking for improvement as an infielder, hitter, or catcher we would love to work with you.
Infield and hitting instruction with Kyle Gray occurs at 180 Performance Center in Leander, Texas. You can schedule a lesson online by using the link above. In-person training for catchers and hitters with Kyle Schmidt will resume in September. As requested, Kyle is now offering remote instruction for catchers and hitters. Full remote instruction is limited to five athletes at a time. If you are interested in beginning remote training, please see the information below!
We have had many players and parents who utilize our products and training material show a desire for distance training. As a result, we've dedicated this remote option for catchers and hitters that provides instruction, analysis, and a direct line of communication with Schmidty. This option is ideal for players who are willing to own their development and commit to getting better.
We use OnForm for delivery of analysis, communication, and access to other relevant material. This application makes it easy to keep an open line of communication so that we are always able to work together. You will receive an invite link after downloading the app. Options range from one time video analysis and annotation to in-depth monthly instruction. See pricing information below.
Option One: Basic Video Analysis
Catchers and Hitters
Parents or players will need to share videos from drill work and games. We recommend uploading multiple videos of receptions, blocks, throws, or swings (ideally from the first base side of the plate for catchers and side view for hitters). You will receive a video breakdown via the OnForm app that includes annotations, comparisons, and a voice over talking through movement patterns, mechanics, and other related material. This is our basic remote option and is ideal for those who simply want occasional feedback on their catching skill or swing. We will provide recommendations for skill focus based on what we see and how we think you can improve! Not included in five person monthly capacity for options two and three. Please reach out to email@example.com for availability and to get started.
Option Two: Weekly Video Analysis
Catchers and Hitters
Parents or players will be expected to share videos from drill work and games on a weekly basis. Every week we will analyze your videos of drill work and game film. You will receive weekly comparison, annotation, voice over, and training recommendation. This training option will give you the ability to receive consistent feedback as you continue to improve in each main skill behind the plate or as a hitter. Our video breakdowns and analysis serve as a reference so that you are able to see your improvement over time and implement change on the field. This option is best suited for those who may not want or need as much communication but would still benefit from feedback on a consistent basis. We will also provide recommendations for skill focus based on what we see every week. Strictly limited to five athletes at any given time. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and to get started.
Option Three: Full Remote Training
This is our most complete remote training option and is reserved exclusively for catchers. This option will require a high level of commitment by parents/players to capture video, develop goals for player development, and communicate frequently. You will receive weekly video analysis and annotation, breakdowns, voice over, review, custom drill prescription (with access to our drill database), and an open line of communication with Schmidty. We will schedule biweekly Zoom or FaceTime calls to reinforce concepts, discuss future direction, identify next steps for development, and talk about other aspects of the game that cannot be completed through drill work. Catchers who opt in to this training model will be able to receive swing guidance and breakdowns as well. After signing up for this option, it is required that we set up a preliminary call to discuss desired outcomes, best practices for video capture and delivery, and other elements of our remote training that will most benefit you. One CRT Belt 2.0 and the Catcher's Receiving Handbook are included at no charge. Strictly limited to five catchers at any given time. Please reach out to email@example.com for availability and to get started.
