TeeBoth Private lessons and group lessons are available at STiKS Academy. Our instructors have a wealth of knowledge and an unbelievable list of credentials.  From a high level of College Playing experience to Major League experience our instructors can work with the beginners to college players. We focus on the fundamentals and concentrate on communication.  We understand that kids learn best visually that’s why we spend a lot of time doing video critique with each player.  When players get done with our lessons we want them to be able to understand the proper mechanics and be able to build upon what they have learned and carry that forward into game situations.

Rates for private lessons vary from instructor to instructor from $50 per hour to $85 per hour. Please call 262-875-5337 to find out more about scheduling private lessons.
