Training and Camp Testimonials

I would like to share a recent experience working with Coach Mongero. My 15 year old son is in his fourth year of playing competitive baseball. During this time period, he has played in many baseball tournaments up and down the east coast and attended nationally recognized (and expensive) instructional baseball camps to advance his skills and knowledge of this great game. I will also add that he is committed to working hard to improve his game.


In July of 2011, I hired Coach Trent Mongero to work privately with my son. After outlining a four day plan consisting of two sessions each day working with coach Mongero "one-on-one", the two of us flew from our home in New York to Georgia to make this happen - I believed so strongly in what he would gain from working with Mongero at this stage of his life (in both player and personal development) I made it a priority to make the investment in this trip.


To say son had a great experience from these four days would be an understatement. The effectiveness of coach Mongero's teachings were truly powerful and meaningful. I was able to witness my son quickly put to use what he was being taught. I was extremely impressed with the thoroughness and extraordinary commitment to detail in each skill being taught. Between clear and concise explanation and flawless demonstration by Mongero himself, the teachings were very well absorbed and implemented. And, while coach Mongero is demanding of his student he is able to balance his sternness with compassion; he treated my son respectfully and there was always an underlying decency in all the instruction and interaction.


I believe what makes Mongero a special coach, teacher and mentor goes far beyond his complete understanding of baseball at the highest level. I think the difference lies in his passion: not only for the game (one can't be in his presence for very long and not pick up on this) but also for his desire for his student to firmly grasp the techniques and concepts being taught.  He is not satisfied to simply teach - he wants to see the student demonstrate to him what has been taught to validate that it has been properly learned and then repeat it, again and again. Also, what I liked about Mongero's approach is how he would converse with my son. Typically, before, during and after working on a drill or game concept they would discuss the:  why's, what's, how's, etc.... and I could tell this dialogue would help to deepen his understanding of what was being learned.  Working with coach Mongero was very positive for my son and has had a lasting impact. From my experiences, Mongero is a rare find.

Coach Mongero's camps are one of the greatest experiences a young baseball player could have. My 13 yr old grandson went to his camp and watch his dvd's and could not wait to get on the ball field and use all the teaching he learned. Coach Mongero's camp has definately make him a better ball player. Can't wait to read the new book and see the dvd's.

Coach Mongero has been a great influence in my sons life. After going to his advance baseball camps, watching his DVD'S My son has received more knowledge of the game. Knowing what to do in key situations is so important, understanding the game is huge, and its the little things that can put you on top of your game!... I see such a huge difference in my sons game, he is more relaxed and confident because he knows what to do and where to go with the ball. Congrats on your new book (Winning Baseball)

My son attended all three of your camps this year and received excellent instruction. This camp was by far the best our family has every experienced. We have been to several camps where there were 150-175 players and the instruction was good, but it was not personalized. You and your staff gave great information, but then you took it a step further and personalized it for each player. Not only did you take it to another level, you provided DVD's for the players to take home and reference. We will continue to return to your camps each year. You will not be able to find this quality of instruction, at this price, any where in the country. Thank you for your hard work, dedication.

Mr. Mongero, I am 13 and I play shortstop, pitcher, and catcher for my middle school team. I have been watching your infield dvd, and it has helped me improve in fielding normal ground balls on a regular basis. By watching the dvd it has helped me to try it on my own in practice and in game situations. Now I am adding the little things such as watching my feet position and holding the glove properly. It has been helping me to make clean plays instead of them being choppy. Next I want to try the pitching and hitting dvd's.
