ission - Together, Paul Ahearne and David Lovell wanted to improve youth and high school baseball and softball players by providing an elite one of a kind player development program. Players and parents need to recognize what areas to focus on to be able to reach full genetic athletic potential.For players to achieve this they must commit to deliberate practice on a daily basis. Many athletes today think they get enough work at team practice or during a weekly lesson. For players to develop properly it will take countless training hours to develop the 5-tools.
Paul and David's past experiences of playing college and professional baseball, coaching high school and select baseball, pitching velocity arm/care clinics, specific camps (hitting, fielding, catching, pitching), and one-on-one lessons led them to offer a very unique specialized program - Elite Five Tool Fit!
