This strength of Dave’s is what sets him apart from many other coaches & teachers lacking his knowledge & experience. .

"Dave Holt takes a patient and nurturing approach to the baseball development of his players.
His recommendations are justified after considerable observations of his players. Dave Holt helped me advance to the Major Leagues!"

I couldn't believe the amount of quality info pertaining to all aspects of the game, until I noticed a picture of the author.
I happen to be a former player of Coach Holt and the knowledge, work ethic, and patience he showed his players was second to none. His understanding of the game combined with his ability to relay that info to players of any playing level is what sets him apart.
It's very rare to find someone that is able to teach the basics to a little leaguer then turn around and fine tune a professional...Coach Holt is the exception to that rule. Brian Moeglin: Baseball Coach/Michigan , former professional ballplayer.
In this highly competitive coaching and sports environment selecting the right leader and teacher will make the difference in building a sustainable winning program or one that will continue to struggle and spiral downward.
I have known Dave Holt for over thirty years. He is a man of integrity, extremely committed, and he understands his craft like very few coaches do. His knowledge of fundamentals, fundraising, coupled with his ability to engage alumni, and handle the public relations of a program make him a powerful force who will create long term success to whoever makes the decision to hire him.
If you are looking to hire a PRO. Then hire Dave Holt , Professional Reliable and highly Organized..”
Coaching & Instruction
“Dave Holt was hired to educate two of my sons on the fundamentals of baseball - hitting, catching, throwing, and pitching. He had a mature professional approach in dealing with young adults, one that I find similar to that of a college full professor who has mastered the skills and techniques necessary to teach successfully.
I have also watched Dave teach and guide college level student athletes during his summer seasons with the Salinas Packers. He did an outstanding professional job of running both the team and the business. It was a regrettable that the Salinas area and temperature could not accommodate summer baseball. I believe Dave to be a great educator and coach.” June 10, 2010

"We drove from 2 hours away for our first training session with Coach Dave 'Skip' Holt for my three baseball-passionate children. It was a fantastic experience, well worth the time, drive, and money.
Coach Skip had a real heart for teaching our kids and shared a lot of insightful, practical information that they were able to immediately go home and incorporate into their game.
We drive by a lot of other schools/coaches to go see Coach Skip, but will continue to do so. His expertise has been the most valuable use of our resources for cultivating excellence in the fundamentals of baseball for our children." Julie Snyder: Baseball Parent
