comes to Kansas City from Sugerland, TX to share his techniques for
teaching the elite swing. Among others, he'll help you answer
these questions: How do you develop an Elite-Level Swing?
What do we really need to do? What do elite level hitters do that
young hitters need to learn to do? Can this swing be taught? More
importantly, can your young hitter learn to swing a bat like an
In Steve's experience, the
answer is almost certainly no … if you
continue doing what 95% of the hitting world (both baseball and
softball) is telling them to do. However … with dedication on the
part of both the hitter and his parent or coach and an understanding
of the principles and movements taught by Steve, mediocre hitters can
develop swings that are pretty darn good. The success stories
are endless. We invite you to spend some time with Steve, and take an
informed look at whether EnglishbeyHitting swing instruction might be
the answer to your young athlete’s hitting aspirations.
traveled from Erie, PA to talk about pitching with us. "It
is my goal as a pitching instructor to teach basic thru advanced
fundamentals in Fastpitch softball pitching. Unlike many other coaches
out there, I do this through my own experience of pitching World Class
softball at the highest levels possible since 1990. There are so few
coaches out there with actual Fastpitch experience, and even fewer
with credentials and accolades from the most prestigious and
recognized Fastpitch softball events and teams around the world.
Having been there, done that at all levels of Fastpitch, I can
help you become a champion whether you're just beginning or a pitcher
on your country's National team. Have confidence in knowing that your
coach is not only teaching how to win, but has been a winner
himself". - Bill Hillhouse
"Bill's simple and effective teaching style was a real eye
opener to my coaches, players and their parents. It really is the
first time that many of them have seen how an effective technique, can
really make it all happen. They have been trained with the volumes of
videos out there on pitching, on what is supposed to be correct. After
seeing his demonstrations and listening to him explain his technique,
we are throwing those videos away. Bill not only talks the talk, he
walks the walk. " - Bob Conter,
President Central PA Krunch Softball.
"I gained tremendous information from Bill at his pitching
clinic/seminar here in Guatemala City. I would highly recommend him to
anyone who wants to develop their pitchers to be be world class."

comes to us from Southern California where as a summer coach he has
two state championships, one USA National Championship and three Top
10 finishes at nationals. Upon retiring from the coaching scene,
Howard started giving defensive lessons locally. His defensive clinics
have grown from once a week to three times a week. From local clinics,
he is now being called across the country to conduct clinics,
including the University of Arizona Candrea clinic. Howard feels that
his ability to break down the different defensive techniques, and his
logical explanations has made him a standout in the defensive area of
The days of a coach hitting
grounders again and again (without an explanation to help) until the
player fields it, is over. Now is the time to be able to explain and
help, which along with repetition does wonders. These are advanced
techniques that Howard uses and has been very successful with.
Howard is one of the very few that teaches how much the body weight,
position, and momentum will help players with their defensive skills.
Too many players try to do everything with the strength of their arms,
instead of using quickness and the body to help make plays. A
good coach will always be open for new ideas and techniques. A coach
may not accept everything another says, but by selectively using
information, the coach will continue to grow and be of more help to
the kids. Coaches are there to basically help kids, so lets
