Next Level Ace Baseball is an explosive pitching program developed by former University of New Orleans pitcher Matt McKissick. The mission is to provide parents and coaches the MOST professional and affordable pitching instruction for their players on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. What sets my program apart from other pitching instructors? Each player receives a free throwing assessment to evaluate their mechanics from top to bottom. Then an Individual Player Profile is designed that is updated after every lesson to track progression. Video analysis is used during each lesson to enhance the players ability to make immediate long term corrections that will significantly improve their power,accuracy, and confidence.
During my time as a ball player, I attended many collegiate and professional baseball camps from age 8 until my senior year. I was fortunate to have played under a very impressive coaching staff throughout my career. See below.

The #1 tool for correcting pitchers mechanical errors is VIDEO ANALYSIS! Developing proper sound consistent mechanics and allowing yourself to be compared side-by-side to a pitcher doing the same mechanics properly is essential to pitchers development. Today's baseball competition level is high and I teach exactly what coaches are looking for in tryouts at all levels. Video analysis can not only determine what needs to be corrected, but also what needs to be added to get your maximum power!
WANT VIDEO ANALYSIS??? ORDER IN MY ONLINE STORE
Email me a video of the pitcher you want analyzed. I will need two angles, one from the front, and one from the side. I want to see all pitches thrown from each angle (ex:fastball, curve-ball, change-up, slider)
After I receive the video I will email your video back within 72 hours with my audio analysis, slow motion breakdown, and a side-by-side comparison of the pitcher next to another pitcher executing proper mechanics.
