"With 3 boys who have been playing baseball since they could hold one and are all now playing in high school, we've been exposed to a few coaches and coaching styles over the past 15 years. What differentiates Alex is his level of discipline, drive and detail. It is so clear how much he loves the game and his willingness to give his knowledge in just the right doses with players - and parents. Our sons learned more in one season with Alex than anyone else and they continue to learn from him through his programs. The expectations Alex instills - being prepared, working hard, 100% effort - and the positive discipline that we've seen carry over into their academic and personal lives is an added bonus! Whether or not your child intends to play baseball in high school, college or beyond, he will receive an incredible foundation and become a better, more focused and strategic player training with Alex."
Amy Brown, mother of Alex Brown, CHS '18, Luke Brown, CHS '20, Will Brown, CHS '21
"What we like most about Alex is how he challenges each and every player he works with to get better! He understands the commitment it takes to improve, and he pushes every athlete to maximize their potential. His workouts are incredibly productive and well-coordinated, which assures each ball player participating the greatest potential to improve. Alex understands that preparation is critical for success and he is always available to help young ball players achieve their goals. He has worked with both of our boys for close to ten years now, and they feel comfortable reaching out to him for guidance and support. One can tell that Alex remains a student of the game, as well, exemplified by his creative fresh approaches to training. Our community is fortunate to have a dedicated and committed baseball mind in Alex Melconian."

"Alex Melconian's positive impact on older players as they prepare to play at very high, competitive levels is well established and documented. The results Alex continues to achieve with younger players can not be overlooked. He has the ability to engage them, speak their language, and build a culture of 'bought in players' - and parents. Alex breaks bad habits before they start, fully explains his methods to the kids, and creates objective improvements from season to season. The fundamentals Alex preaches transcend from the field to the classroom as well as to the overall development of each kid. "
