"My daughter went to Coach Ali for individual and small group pitching lessons during her middle-school and early high school years.  Coach Ali does a fantastic job coaching to the level of ballpayer she is working with.  Her passion for the game shows throughout the lesson as Coach Ali celebrates the successes.  She always keeps lessons positive and upbeat, and uses a variety of tools, games, game situations, etc. to keep things always very interesting.  I feel my daughter's softball skills developed significantly during the time she worked with Coach Ali.  Most importantly, Coach Ali's style just reinforced my daughter's passion for the game.  She is currently playing DI ball in one of the Nation's top conferences."
