A Note from the Coaches: We are very excited about our upcoming Elite Infield Camps. We have been coaching and studying infield play for over 25 years. There is nothing we enjoy more than helping players reach their peak. We have been blessed with opportunities to coach some of the best players at both the amateur and professional level, and work alongside some of the best Dominican infielders and infield coaches in the world. We look forward to seeing you at camp!
“Nate is a very passionate and invested teacher. He has the unique ability to draw visual pictures with his communication to help the player understand a skill. Most importantly, Nate is teaching for the night reasons, he has a passion for players and coaches and their growth mentally and physically. I really enjoy what he does and how he does it.”
“Nate and Trent,
I can’t tell you how impressed I was with you guys and your camp this weekend! I was blown away with your passion and knowledge. Thanks for coming to Texas and let’s stay in touch about future endeavors.”
“Coach Trent Mongero focuses on the essential infield fundamentals. The little things, (skills, drills, mindset) that help an infielder take their game to the highest level. He has studied infield play in depth for over 30 years. He also has a track record of being a master communicator which is a must when it comes to building elite caliber infielders.”
As a former Junior College, Division II, and Division 1 coach, I’ve conducted, worked, and observed many camps over the years. This weekend’s camp was by far the best that I’ve ever seen. Organized, detailed, and full of game changing information. Keep on making a difference.”
“Thanks again for the work you do with youth players! Guys with your resume, knowledge base, and ability to communicate don’t usually work with youth players, so guys like me are very appreciative of your efforts.

Training Principles of Infield Mastery
TTB (Train The Brain): The Brain must be trained just like the fundamental skills of infield play “Train the Brian” (TTB). We believe strongly in the (95/5) “Baseball is 5% Mental and 95% Physical and the 5% Mental controls the 95% Physical.” With the Mental Game being critical, we incorporate mental game training throughout the entire camp: in warmup, catch play, drill work, game speed exercises, workout routines, etc.
LOA (The Law of Attraction): The body and mind work together. The body seeks to accomplish what the mind thinks and pictures. In order for an infielder to be a play-maker, his mind must be right. “Get Your Mind Right” (GYMR).
SVT (Sequence Variation Training): SVT is a training concept that teaches infield play through different sequences of game-like movements. The variations of movements and plays are put into sequences and then mastered. SVT begins with predictable movement patterns. Once the predictable patterns are learned through isolation movements and below-game-speed drills, infielders then move into the unpredictable challenge phase of SVT and into the mastery phase of 3RP.
3RP (Read – Recognize – React – Precision): 3RP is the ability to read, recognize and react unconsciously, with precision, within tenths of seconds. Our training methods develop 3RP. The result of 3RP: infielders consistently executing both routine and great play without thought and little effort (Wu-Wei). With 3RP Mastery, average infielders become great, and great infielders become the best!
