FAQ

DO WE NEED A CATCHER FOR INDIVIDUAL LESSONS?

No. Pitchers will throw into a tarp, this allows them to fully concentrate on their fundamentals rather than on throwing strikes to a catcher. Lessons will always take place in the basement.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DOES MY DAUGHTER NEED FOR INDIVIDUAL LESSONS?

Her glove, clean shoes (not cleats), and a bat if she has one. We may do some hitting at the end of the lesson, if time allows. Proper pitching attire is requested, shorts or pants and a t-shirt is appropriate. In winter months or on rainy days, please wear different shoes into the garage and put on dry, clean shoes to enter the house/basement. Also, please park on the right side of the driveway.

DO I NEED TO BE AT A CERTAIN ATHLETIC LEVEL TO TRAIN WITH NUCLEUS PITCHING ACADEMY?

No experience is necessary no matter what age you are. All ages, abilities, and body types are welcome.

ARE PARENTS ALLOWED TO WATCH INDIVIDUAL LESSONS? WHAT ABOUT SIBLINGS?

Yes! Parents are allowed to stay and observe the lessons (though not required). However, if a parent becomes a distraction, I will ask that you no longer sit in on lessons. Also, please refrain from coaching your daughter while watching her lesson.
Space for those watching a lesson is very limited, and safety is always a concern with balls whizzing by and bats being swung. I want to be able to focus solely on the pitcher, so please use your best judgement about bringing a sibling along. Again, if any family member is a distraction, they will be asked to not return. Thank you for understanding!

HOW DO I PAY FOR LESSONS AND WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

Cash, check (made out to Nucleus Pitching Academy), or Venmo (@Linnea-Utecht) are accepted at this time. Pre-payment of multiple lessons is accepted, however paying on a weekly basis is preferred.

Cancellations will be accepted no later than 8 hours before the start time of your lesson. If you need to cancel within those eight hours a $30 fee will be assessed. The fee will be waived if you are able to reschedule within the same calendar week or I am able to fill your spot. Missed or forgotten lessons will be charged the full $60 fee, which must be paid prior to your next scheduled lesson.
