My 10 year old son, Isaiah, was struggling at the plate. His coaches put him at the bottom of the lineup and he was discouraged. It was frustrating for me to see, and I didn’t know how to help. Generic tips like “keep your eyes on the ball” and “be confident” were just frustrating him more.
Thankfully, we met coach Kurt one night at the batting cage. He generously offered us just 2 very specific cues that completely changed Isaiah’s swing in the best way. I immediately booked 1-1 sessions and am so grateful I did!
Kurt has a brilliant way of diagnosing his swing using his keen vision and simple technology. Once he sees and shows Isaiah what he can do better, he communicates it to him very precisely and in a way that is actionable. He uses humor, analogy, and respect to get across his teachings and it works!
It was so wonderful for me as a mom to see my son go from batting last and feeling defeated, to hitting a solid, 2-run homer in the championship game! The best part is not even how much his swing has improved; it’s that he is more confident, he is empowered to take ownership of his baseball experience, and he’s developing a growth mindset.
These are lessons that will serve him throughout his entire life. I highly recommend Coach Kurt and am so grateful to have him in our corner!
I reached out to Kurt Hewes owner of Ignite to talk hitting after a post on Twitter/Instagram. He immediately responded and the exchange began. I had the opportunity to meet with Kurt July of 2017 to see, talk and work hitting with him.
As a high school coach he has been a VALUED resource. I really appreciate the science and analytics in him and how he is continuously researching and evolving as a hitting instructor. The progressions I learned from him really make a difference and transfer over to the swing quickly. They have become a staple to helping hitters grow.
Coaches in the area I encourage you to look into Kurt Hewes and Ignite Baseball. He will be there for you and your program. He is a smart and passionate hitting coach who can help!
Thank you Kurt, for helping me grow and helping our hitters!
My Son has been working with Ignite Baseball for about a month now. We have definitely seen improvements in my sons baseball swing. He is hitting the ball harder with more consistency. I am really pleased with the Interaction the Kurt has with my son. Kurt and Ignite Baseball Staff Located in McLean Virginia (Now Fairfax VA, near Mosaic) have been doing a great job of explaining WHY they are working on certain movement patterns and drill etc…. So my Son understands why he is doing it. This is great because it is teaching my boy to be his own coach and a Student of the baseball swing and not a follower. If you are looking for someone to help your son hit the ball harder with more consistency and clear explanation as to what you are doing and why. Then I highly recommend you contact Ignite Baseball and Get a Free Evaluation (now $26) while they still have a Free Evaluation. We look forward to continue to go to Ignite Baseball for our Hitting Instruction.
Kurt from IB has been key in our son’s development as a hitter. Our son now swings with power that he didn’t have before thanks to the simple yet effective drills Kurt teaches. IB’s techniques have also made our son much more confident at the plate. I highly recommend IB to other parents and coaches looking to improve their players’ hitting.
There is a secret in high level baseball hitting instruction in McLean, VA that will become no secret at all soon enough….I am hoping! It’s called Ignite Baseball. Kurt Hewes uses major league tested and true hitting instruction techniques to help your player become the best hitter he or she can. This isn’t rocket science, but it is basic science that your physics teachers would be proud of…. The higher your bat velocity and the longer your bat stays on plane in the hitting zone the farther the ball travels whether you’re a 7-year old tee baller or a 27-year old major leaguer. The science is the same and the sooner you learn that the better a hitter your son or daughter will become!! My son didn’t learn this until age 17 with the awesome instruction of Kurt Hewes at Ignite Baseball. His bat speed went from 84mph when he first started to 95mph and climbing today… It’s still a work in progress but the results are real. He sees Kurt weekly and the methods, drills, and instruction Kurt uses are likely NOT being taught by your local baseball hitting cage instructors, even if they’ve played high level ball… There may be a couple out there, but not like Kurt at Ignite Baseball who will teach you exactly how to improve your swing and your hitting approach like you’ve never seen before, so check Kurt out and watch his videos… You’ll be glad you did…. He didn’t ask me to write this either, by the way, but I wanted to help save some dads some serious cash that they’re likely wasting with other inadequate instruction…. And they don’t even realize it.
