FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
At 21st Century Sports we run a variety of programs in order to accommodate children of ALL ability levels, from those who seek to improve their overall baseball/softball ability or a specific skill (e.g. pitching, hitting, etc.) to those who look to better their social skills while working in a group environment.
To effectively run our various programs we, again, point directly to our quality staff members who strive to maintain a safe and positive atmosphere for all children. Being that most of our staff members are area school teachers, they are true professionals who deal with students of varying ability levels on a daily basis.
For the highly competitive player, we also have a staff that WILL help you achieve more on the diamond than you ever have before. Guaranteed. To learn more about our staff, read some of our coaches’ biographies on the Baseball-Elite Coaching Staff page on the left.
In short, our staff members. We are fully confident that we provide the best STAFF that is available for children in all of youth baseball today. PERIOD. Nearly all of our staff members are Westchester-area teachers who double as high school and/or college coaches and possess well over 125 years of cumulative teaching and coaching experience. As a parent, you can feel comfortable knowing that your child will be working directly with people who, as teachers and school coaches, are responsible for providing a setting that is safe, educational and fun – all at the same time.
Our staff also has members that are current professional baseball and softball players. This is in addition to our some of our coaches who have competed not only at the Varsity high school level, but at the highest level of amateur baseball: in Division I college baseball, and against many of the Top 25 programs in the entire country.
Most, if not all, other baseball/softball training companies simply do not possess the same quality of staff. To verify this, search the “Staff” page on other websites and compare the biographies of their staff members to ours. You will see the difference.
Many of our programs take place right in your town’s youth, high school or recreational ballparks, including our summer camps and Team Training sessions.
We provide a range of services, from children’s birthday parties to one-on-one private instruction, from basic skill clinics to elaborate summer camps, from Team Training to comprehensive Coaches’ Education programs (educating youth coaches, e.g. Little League and Babe Ruth League coaches). For a complete listing of our services, please see the left-hand side of our website.
21st Century Sports (21CS) is a collection of baseball coaches, most of whom currently coach at the High School Varsity and College levels. We are located in the New York metropolitan area and provide coaching credentials that are both unique and superior to the sports of baseball and softball. For more information, you can visit the “We Are 21st Century Sports” page atop the website, or the Staff Biographies on the left.
“My son is a 15u competitive travel baseball player who was looking to get additional instruction and I came across Coach Bill Consiglio through a camp over a year ago. My son has since worked with Coach Consiglio on many aspects of his game and I have to say that since then, my son has elevated his game and has become more confident. Coach Bill has a unique way of communicating with the kids so they understand what needs to be done. He has coached at the highest levels, including Division I and can very readily see things that other coaches do not. He understands what each child needs in order to succeed, improve and move onto the next level. If you are looking for a coach who understands the game and can help your child improve, I highly recommend Coach Consiglio.”
“Great program, well organized! Our son learned all about the game. Made lots of new friends. Highly recommended!”
Thank you for the fabulous baseball birthday party you organized and ran for our son Thomas! As parents who have hosted over a dozen outsourced birthday parties in the past, you should be proud to know that your company threw the most enjoyed and professionally organized party of any company we have ever worked with!
To quote the birthday boy: “My baseball party was the best birthday party I have ever had and ever been to!
I fully appreciate the enthusiasm Bill and his staff have in communicating the sound principles of baseball. Far too often in the college recruiting process we see young players who have no understanding of how to play the game. Yet, they are unrealistically in pursuit of a college scholarship. I am not saying that every player who participates in 21st Century Sports will receive a college scholarship to play baseball. What I will say is that Coach Consiglio and his staff will provide players with the proper techniques to give them the best chance to have a positive baseball experience, no matter what level they aspire to play – college, high school or Little League. And as a parent myself, that’s all you can ask.
Coach Consiglio does a great job in developing the young player. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the game and takes a lot of pride in seeing his players progress. I have no doubt he will lead his staff to undertake this same mission.
Just wanted to let you know that, once again, your guys were awesome.
Professional, kind, and the kids had an absolute blast!
“My son loved every minute of camp!”
Coach Consiglio opened my eyes to the possibility of playing college baseball. He helped me in all aspects of my game; helping me to improve my skills on the field, my mental makeup about the game, and how to handle the college recruiting process. He was always there to offer honest and straightforward advice and continues to check up once my collegiate career began.
“Both of my boys raved about the camp. I’ve never seen them so excited every morning to go to camp!”
What do you do when your son wants only a Baseball Birthday Party for his 7th b’day?! I NOW KNOW – YOU CALL 21ST CENTURY SPORTS! Their staff was a HOME RUN! From the first time I contacted them to the last minute of the party it was a fantastic experience! Their baseball party team kept my son and his friends not only engaged but excited the entire time! In fact, when the party was over the dads were so inspired that they began their own post-party game! Weeks later parents were still approaching me and saying that my son’s baseball birthday party was one of the best parties their child has ever been to! Thanks so much to the staff at 21st Century Sports for making my son’s birthday party a day he will never forget….AND EVEN COMING UP WITH AN AUTOGRAPHED BALL OF HIS FAVORITE PLAYER! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY & UNEXPECTED!!! We can’t thank your team enough 🙂
The staff at 21st Century Sports has done an excellent job working with all of the baseball programs in our town – from TeeBall to Little League to Babe Ruth & up through the Varsity program – over the last few years. They take a comprehensive approach to the ‘well-being’ of our baseball feeder programs and have helped us instill a systematic instructional program to pass on to both our youngsters and coaches. More imporantly, they have established personal relationships and connections with each of the different baseball programs in our town. This comprehensive approach enables everyone in our baseball community, from the time they are first able to throw a ball until they leave for college, with the feeling that not only have they been provided with the very best possible instruction, but have worked and interacted with our children and parents – as people who sincerely care about the game of baseball as well as each individual’s skill development.
