Welcome to Coach Pete’s National School of Baseball & Softball, LLP est. 2014


“The ability to maximize the use of your entire body and the downward slope of the mound in the pitcher’s mechanics in order to: protect the throwing arm, produce optimum velocity & accuracy, allowing the pitcher to pitch in a dominant manner for as long as his/her physical body will allow.”
~ Coach Pete Cimino

Made especially for the COVID-19 Lockdown

The COVID-19 pandemic leaves us all in a very scary and uncertain world. These are unchartered waters for just about everyone. Stopping the spread of this virus and keeping everyone healthy is this country’s number one priority. As it is Coach Pete and the NSoBS.
In the current lockdown situation, all indoor baseball facilities are following the guidelines laid forth by our Governor and remain closed – as they are deemed nonessential business.
On top of that, all baseball fields connected to park districts are off-limits fear of large crowds gathering. I have heard of a few fields that are owned by schools that allow a few people to work on baseball. If you know of any, let me know.
As of Sunday March 29th, President Trump stated at his daily press conference that he wants the lockdowns laid forth by Governors to remain in place until at least April 30th. Even with that, there is the possibility that it could last longer.
The following services will be offered until the lockdown is lifted to allow lessons at facilities or baseball fields again.
1. Home lessons
    a. Coach Pete will come to the student’s residence
    b. Regular Pricing

2. Outdoor lessons
    a. Only at an approved field
    b. Regular Pricing

3. Video Lessons
    a. Using Zoom Meeting Software
    b. Free download to your phone, tablet or laptop
    c. Pitching $40
    d. Hitting $30

4. Video Analysis
    a. Send videos of drills or mechanics for Coach Pete to analyze and provide feedback.
    b. 1-10 Videos$20
    c. 10-20 Videos$30



Our intention is to continue our training once the lockdown is lifted and play our summer tournaments

  • We welcome all players who would like to join us if their spring travel season is shortened or if their in-house league is cancelled.
  • We welcome all 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U players
  • Our rosters will not be finalized until June, so there is plenty of time to decide
