"I am writing this letter to outline my experience with Go Yard and the coaches involved. I have been with this program for one year, and having been with other similar programs for my son, I have found this to be a professionally run organization and the coach to be a professionally oriented coach. The experience my son has enjoyed has helped him in ways that he has not had before. An example of this is the amount of contact we have gotten from colleges seeking my son’s talent. It seems to me that they go above and beyond to make sure all of their players are giving opportunities not afforded by other progams."

"We couldn’t be more pleased with the result playing on the Go Yard Scout Team for the past two years. Going into sophomore year we realized playing on a travel team would not give our son the opportunity to be seen and recruited by college coaches. Coach Sessa guided us through the process and afforded our son quality exposure, opportunity and personal attention which directly resulted in multiple offers. He recently accepted an offer to play for a D2 college. Our decision to join the Go Yard team was money and time well spent."

"Go Yard Baseball is a “must” if your baseball player wants to be recruited to play in college! I can’t say enough about the program that Coach Paul Sessa has created to get players to the next level.
He provides fair and honest advice to help players improve and excel, producing great results with no wasted time or money. Through high-visibility showcases with unparalleled exposure, my son has gotten noticed by many college coaches from all divisions of play. Even the team practices are run by college coaches!
The stellar reputation of Go Yard Baseball is well-known by college scouts. My son feels like he has an advantage over other players when he takes the field wearing his Go Yard jersey. This is by far the best baseball experience my son has ever had. Go Yard or go home!"

"As the season comes to a close, I wanted to take time to thank you for this past 15 months. The Go Yard experience has truly been a great showcase for young men’s talents and dreams. You have made the ride through the process very easy and calming, even though we all know that it is filled with tension and failure. My son was able to open more doors and see more things at the recruiting level than we could have ever done without Go Yard. You and your team are a class act and I wish you all the best in the coming years.
I hope that my son can take what he has learned and fulfill his dreams at the collegiate level at Chestnut Hill College.
I appreciate the opportunity for my son and “THANK YOU”"

" PJ credits you for his chance to go to Bridgewater College. We just dropped him off there and we are looking forward to baseball in October. PJ really enjoyed playing for your team he had a lot of fun. We are looking forward to at least four more years of baseball.
Thank you for helping PJ achieve his dream."

"Fitting that the process would conclude at Prime 60, since that’s where our GoYard experience began. What a great event, both times. We showed up last year on a lark. Just looking for a local showcase where Ben would have to show up and perform alone and could get seen by schools of actual interest to us. A way to get in one last thing before the weather turned and feel that all-eyes feeling for the first time.
Ben looked pretty good that weekend and you can imagine our surprise when you called to offer him a spot on your scout team. We didn’t even know you had a team! We had some great, fun conversations from the start. I’m sure you remember my asking for references. I could hear you fall out of your seat from the other end of the phone. Funny enough, Ryan was one of the first people I spoke to (and now the last). And I felt great about putting Ben in your system because I could tell, from our first call, that you not only saw something in him but wanted good things for him.
I know he had a great time playing for you and busting your chops. The summer was a lot harder than we had ever imagined but Ben got over the disappointment and frustration of his injury and went to work on his rehab. When it came time to start his throwing program he literally went to the field alone with a bag of baseballs and just threw at the backstop, time after time. I’m not sure how many kids would do that kind of work but he did. And I’m really proud of him. For all of that and for the outstanding scholarship offer he received from Dickinson for his great academic performance.
I’m so glad you called us that day and that we made the decision to join Go Yard. Thank you for the time you spent with Ben, offering advice and encouragement. And for guiding us through the process. We are as happy as we can be that Ben is a Red Devil, and that he will be working with Ryan, which keeps us as part of the extended Go Yard family.
Great job. Hope to see you again soon.
And, if ever another crazy dad asks you for a reference, send him to me first!"

"“Coach Sessa’a pure determination to get his players recruited is unmatched. Furthermore, Go Yard gave me the platform to show case my abilities. Go Yard is the reason why I got to live out my dream of playing division one baseball. So thank you Go Yard, and more importantly thank you Coach Sessa. - Zach DeVincenzo, Saint Joseph’s University ‘17"

"Deciding to play for Coach Sessa and Go Yard changed my life. I went from an under recruited pitcher with no college offers to fielding over 10 division 1 offers in a calendar year under coach Sessa. The passion and commitment he shows to his players is something that is unmatched by any coach I have played for. The exposure you will receive from playing Go Yard rivals any showcase team in the area. I am forever grateful for the opportunities that Go Yard presented to me and any player looking to further their academic and athletic career should look no further than coach sessa and Go Yard."

"My college destination would not have been possible without the help of Coach Sessa and his Go Yard program. For this, I am forever grateful.
I was introduced to Coach Sessa and his Go Yard program which had a well-known reputation of successfully placing aspiring collegiate athletes into baseball programs at the next level. While participating in one of the several showcases Coach Sessa runs through Go Yard, I was noticed by a coach from Ursinus College. Eventually, after taking a visit to campus and seriously considering my options with my family, I committed to Ursinus.
Thank you Coach!"

"My son, Tyler, is currently a sophomore pitcher at Arcadia University & he is having an excellent experience there. I can honestly say that enrolling Tyler in the Go Yard program was a great decision. Tyler received multiple offers to play college baseball and those were directly related to his Go Yard experience. Paul Sessa was and continues to be 100% behind Tyler. I highly recommend this program if one of your son’s goals is to play baseball in college".
