TAYLOR FEATHERSTON, 2015 ANAHEIM ANGELS
"Darin comes to work everyday to get you better. Truly a professional who takes time to get to know his players before he rushes to judgment. We had more conversation about approach and feel than mechanics. He always reminded me to trust my work and remember how good I am; baseball is a tough enough game as it is to continually have negative thoughts in your head. We worked through the good times and the bad; and he helped me get me to where I am today."
- Taylor Featherston, Colorado Rockies 2011-2014, Rule V to Anaheim Angels 2015, Former TCU Shortstop
DEVELOPING AND PREPARING CATCHERS FROM JR. HIGH TO A COLLEGE PLAYER!
"After attending several other camps and clinics we had been frustrated with how little quality instruction was focused on catchers, we attended one of Coach Everson’s clinics and we were hooked. The personalized attention to detail Darin gives is unmatched by anything we have found. Evan began working with Darin as an 8th grader and continued touching base and attending camps throughout high school. Darin has become a coach, mentor, and friend. The skill and confidence he instilled in my son helped turn him in to a four year varsity starter.
When the time came to sign a National Letter of intent to play ball for Viterbo, Darin was one of the first people Evan wanted to let know. As a Legion coach, I continually recommend Darin’s camps to all of my players at every level.

"CLASS ACT" PRE-SEASON HITTING CAMP
"I just want to take the time to thank you for putting on a class act hitting camp at Northern State University in Aberdeen, SD yesterday. My son wasn’t hugely keen on going, mostly because he is still in basketball season and hadn’t really changed gears yet. Well, he was so fired up after completing your clinic. He said this was the best clinic he’s gone to, and he has gone to many for both baseball and basketball. He loved the personalized instruction he got and really feels like he walked away learning enough to make a difference in his game. He didn’t feel like he was just going through the motions alone in mass. He can’t wait to head to the next one we can get to. Thank you for the attention you took in making sure this hitting clinic was geared for individual instruction and success. We will definitely pass the word around, making sure everyone knows that if you don’t go to any others, make sure to go to an Elite camp or clinic of some kind."

INSTRUCTIONAL ADJUSTMENTS TO IMPROVE OUR CAMPERS
"Thank you for sending the video lesson. Your instructions will be helpful for Tyler. We’ve already made adjustments and they are working. Thanks for your help, hope to work with you in the future."
DETAILED FRAME-BY-FRAME ANALYSIS!
"I received the video for Logan's swings. The detailed instructions you provided in the frame by frame analysis is beyond anything that I had anticipated. Logan has not yet seen the video but I'm eager to show it to him. I am impressed! Thank you! What a great gig you have -- to provide technical information concerning swinging a bat to kids to help them to get as good as they possibly can. Please let me know when you firm up the next date. Keep up the great work! The thought of inspiring a kid to go work on his swing rather than to play video games or to go smoke cigarettes at the mall is awesome! God bless you."
- Mick Karst
THE VALUE OF VIDEO INSTRUCTION
"I received both e-mails. What a valuable lesson and tool for Davey to look at. The camp and feedback was well worth the time and money. I think Davey seeing himself on video is a very positive step in his growth as a catcher and hitter."
- Father of Camper
ONLINE VIDEO HITTING INSTRUCTION
"We have received the video lesson and enjoyed the information provded. The information is a great teaching tool for anyone. Thanks for providing these opportunities and we look forward to seeing you at a future camp."
- Mark Madigan, Rosendale, WI (father of camper)
QUALITY EVALUATIONS FOR PROPER PREPARATION
"Thank you for sending Darren's evaluation. It will definitely help in his preparation for the upcoming season, as will the techniques and drills learned at your camp. Hopefully we can make time to attend a hitting camp next off-season."
- Matt Schlaefer
AFFORDABILITY & QUALITY INSTRUCTION
Great website! Your camps are always the best because of the low number of campers and the high number of good coaches working them. If you or your player are looking for a camp that is affordable and has great instruction I recommend elite baseball camps. They are a hit!

HELPING TO CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR PLAYERS
Our son was a late-blooming junior pitcher who had limited innings and exposure ---- definitely not on the radar to play Division 1 college ball. In the Midwest, it is an unfortunate fact that it's harder for talented kids to be seen, so it is important to attend every important event. We heard about Darin's camp from a prestigious D-1 university, and though we were nervous about the weather, drove through near-blizzard conditions to attend.
CJ's potential was recognized. He was exposed to college coaches there, and he was referred on to several by-invitation-only showcases. He also received an offer to play with a competitive team in the spring and got even more exposure from that. Subsequently, he not only landed a great Division 1 scholarship, he was actually recruited by over 2 dozen universities and junior colleges. Most importantly, though, he got enough notice to be drafted in early June by the Houston Astros. He now has a foot in the door to achieve his dream. That would have never happened without his big break at the Elite Baseball Pitching Camp.
If you are serious about baseball and want to give your son every opportunity to get exposure, you really can't afford to miss a camp of this caliber. The staff is very well-connected, and they know what they're doing.- Tina Herrforth, (CJ Herrforth graduated from Arrowhead Union H.S. in Delafield, WI)
