Rob and Rich Butler are former major league players that are dedicated to training and developing baseball and softball players of all ages and talent levels. The brothers are now expanding their services to helping players get a fair chance at tryouts and showcases with their ELITE SPORTS SHOWCASE RECRUITING VIDEO CHANNEL.
Are you ready to showcase yourself? Tryouts are coming up and you can have exposure to more than one team if you can’t make all of the tryout dates. Let us produce a professionally made tryout video with a link to your video so you can connect to any team you wish to play on. We know what coaches are looking for at a tryout. We offer our knowledge and expertise to any player girl or boy of any age and talent level whether your trying out for a rep team or looking for a college scholarship. We will get you there front and center by providing the YouTube link of your video to the head coach or recruiter.

Call the facility to book.  Cost $350.00
