Overview of The Hitting Vault

The Hitting Vault is an online membership community developed by Coach Matt Lisle and Aaron James in 2016 that teaches hitting. Our online membership community consists of baseball and softball players, coaches and parents that are trusting us to help them unlock their potential and reach their goals. Our members range from parents and coaches of youth players, all the way to professional and collegiate level players and coaches. The Hitting Vault is one of the leading voices in both softball and baseball with a combined reach of over 1M followers on social media.

The Hitting Vault is the most effective and most popular online hitting membership. Our product transforms athletes and coaches.
