CBA is TOP NOTCH
My son has been taking lessons and attending camps at CBA for a few years. We LOVE how much he has grown in the sport thanks to the great instruction from the CBA staff. Coach Finlaw has helped take his hitting to a whole new level!!

Coach Finlaw is Great
My grandson, Dillon, had a lesson this week with Coach Finlaw. Dillon really likes Coach. Coach has a gift to work with children. Dillon has responded well with Coaches instruction and input with making adjustments. My conversations with Coach have also been very enlightening. I respect his thoughts and perspective of the game. Coach is a one in a million.

Coach Finlaw
Our 2 sons have been seeing coach Finlaw for a few years now & we have seen the boys hitting go from average to outstanding ! Whenever the boys are in a slump coach can look at their swing and have them make their adjustments and they are back to doing their job in the batters box. We are very greatful to have him as our kids “coach” they trust what he instructs them to do because they have seen their lessons make impacts during a game ,they go in the batters box with confidence .

Hitting Instruction
Highly recommend Coach Finlaw. He is great with my grandson. He sees what needs to be worked on and finds a way to correct them by encouragement not condescending remarks. My grandson looks forward to his lessons and really like “Coach”. He even took time to explain to me his process of observation and deciding what needs to be “Fixed” first. CBA has a one in a million with this guy.

Hitting Instruction
Coach Finlaw is a “genius”. If I had his instruction 55 years ago no doubt I would be in the Baseball Hall of Fame today. We have come a long way from; keep your eye on the ball, don’t step in the bucket, and take a level swing. That was the only advice I got in the day. Had to go to dental school instead, to make my millions.

Excellent Batting Lesson
My son has been struggling with batting. He is an avid ball player and really strives to succeed. He practices regularly. After minimal batting success, I took him to see Coach Finlaw. He made great improvements in his hitting. It was worth the time and money to see him smile after his lesson!

Coach Finlaw is an outstanding hitting coach,. He relates well to kids of all ages. Early in the season my son picks up new swings. 1 or 2 lessons Finlaw gets him back on track extending and driving the ball. Really amazing the difference the C. Finlaw makes. Highly recommed.

These guys are good!
These guys really know how to work with kids. Coach Finlay is awesome. Coach and Stan really break down the training to a level that both the kid and I understand. I am not an expert at baseball but I know coaching. These guys are good. I am not a wealthy person, but this is well worth it. My sons coaches on his travel ball team and high school team are good, but Stan and Coach fill in the gaps. Don’t cheat your kid, come to CBA.
