"As a varsity baseball coach and baseball academy owner on the east coast, I've been following coach Nelson's updates, articles and videos to learn more coaching techniques. When I heard that I could subscribe to be a member of Cornerstone to have unlimited access to ALL of his books, courses and videos, it was a "no-brainer". I am currently implementing his hitting drills and tactical games from his GENERATING OFFENSE e-book and online course. There is so much QUALITY information about coaching baseball there is no reason to have to purchase another book or coaching manual."

Mini Clinics with some of the best coaches in the country just for Cornerstone Members
I had never coached baseball until I met Coach Nelson. Through his coach training system I went from being uncomfortable as an assistant coach to running my own high school team. Having access to the Cornerstone library and online courses has been a godsend to me. I accessed the library daily to get tactical games, and practice organization ideas. The courses revolutionized my coaching style, much to the benefit of my athletes and gave me a firm belief system to carry throughout my season. If there was anything I needed on a daily basis, this website had it for me. -Ryan L., Freshman Baseball Coach

Frequently Asked Questions
Question: What age level is this appropriate for?
Answer: This membership has a lot of content for coaches, parents, and players of every competitive level. For younger players, there are drills that teach very basic fundamentals. For the more advanced and older players and coaches, we have very technical information on hitting, defense, tactics, and the mental game.
Question: I'm a new coach. Will I be able to understand the information in the website?
Answer: Yes! Our material is broken down in an easy to understand fashion. Additionally, there is an entire course for new coaches just like you. What's fantastic for you is that as you get more comfortable coaching and with the basic content, you can move on to the more advanced material in the website.
QUESTION: I'm a veteran coach. Will there be anything new for me on the website?
Answer: Yes! At Cornerstone our motto is "Never Stop Learning." Because of this, we are constantly researching new techniques, drills, tactics, and methods of instruction. This cutting edge research can get pretty technical and our advanced coaches will be able to understand and benefit from.
Question: How do I access the material?
Answer: After you join our community, you will be taken to your membership page www.cornerstonecoacingacademy.com/my-account. This page will serve as your HOME BASE for your membership. From there, you will be able access ALL of the material available to you.
Please allow up to 12 hours (usually much less) for all courses and libraries to be opened to you.
Question: What if I want to cancel?
Answer: No problem. There will be a cancel my membership button right on your account page. Just click there and cancel. If you were dissatisfied with your membership, send me a personal email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will refund your last month's membership payment. The only question I may ask is what we can do better.
Question: There is so much information out there, why is this membership worth while?
Answer: At Cornerstone, we take baseball instruction very seriously. When you do a Google search for baseball hitting drills, you get 7.1 million hits. How are you supposed to sort through that? We do that work for you!
QUESTION: What is the Cornerstone instruction philosophy?
Answer: We believe in athlete-centered coaching, teaching skills and tactics through game like drills and tactical games where athletes are given as much control as they are comfortable with. Everything in our library and courses reflect this philosophy and give you the opportunity to help athletes translate their skills into games.
Question: What is the email consultation all about?
Answer: Have you ever had a situation come up during your season that you aren't quite sure how to handle? Want to try something new, but you aren't sure where to start? Need a drill or game to teach a specific skill?
These would all be great reasons to shoot me an email and I'll get back to you within 12 hours with an answer.
Question: How does the video analysis component of my membership work?
Answer: If you have a player you'd like us to analyze, just capture a video and submit it to us using the video analysis section of your account page. To see some of the improvements that can be made, check out this video... https://www.cornerstonecoachingacademy.com/video-analysis/
Question: With other programs costing much more, how and why is yours so much cheaper?
Answer: We developed Cornerstone with one goal in mind, improving the quality of instruction at the amateur baseball level. We could easily charge more, but our goal is get this information in the hands of as many coaches, parents, and players as possible. By putting this information online, not only can you access it anywhere, but it helps us keep the cost for you down.
Also, we don't have a professional web development team, I do all the web development. We don't have a professional production team, a marketing team, a branding team, or anything like that. We are a very small group of coaches and players that love the game of baseball and want to share what we have learned to help amateur coaches give their players the best experience possible.
