"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."
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.
"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".
"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.
"Coach Sessa, I just wanted to express my gratitude for the extraordinary experience we had with the Go Yard Gators Scout Team this year.
You run a top notch organization and it's no surprise that our Scout team has so many college commits. Every event you had on our team schedule yielded MULTIPLE conversations with college coaches. Unlike other showcase events, where there is no support after the event, you provide solid input, advice and strategy to make the most of the exposure that my son received. Your program is a full impact program in that every event has MULTIPLE college coaches in attendance. I still remember the first time we met when you stressed to us that "if (we) just follow the program - (my son) will get all the exposure he will will need."
You were 100% correct! If I could advise any prospective parent - my advice would be to TRUST YOU and your program. Your experience and your abililty to get college coaches on the phone is impressive. I could write so much more but I would rather you refer anyone with questions to me as I would be happy to speak about our experience.
We will always remember this year - thank you!"
"I would like to personally thank Paul Sessa and Sandy Sessa for all of their hard work this fall. My son Jason came to the Go Yard Gator Scout Team late in the game to try to play college baseball. Paul and his wife ran some great showcases, actually some of the best we have seen since my son started playing competive baseball. Coaches began to show interest in my son and we started going on visits to schools which then lead to my sons committment to pay baseball at Rowen University. Paul is a beast that knocks on doors for his players! I truly believe in his passion for the game and his kids. I would highly recommend this program to all."
"I wanted to share the great experence my son had being a player with the Go Yard Gator Scout Team this fall. Justin had played on other travel teams over the years, but this fall we decided to join Go Yard based on the recommendations and positive feedback of others. Paul and Sandy Sessa go above and beyond for their players from start to finish. Coach Paul showcases his players to an excellent selection of colleges at all levels and has relationships with all of them. I think they respect him and know he will present them with talented players.
Coach Paul exceeded all expectations and really made my son feel like he was his #1 priority. After only one fall showcase season with Go Yard, my son received several Division 1 offers. He is so excited to continue his baseball career playing for Rutgers University and is grateful to have found his Go Yard team and Paul and Sandy Sessa."

Here's the latest from us, including updates and announcements.
2019 Columbus Day Showdown at Diamond Nation!
Although our program isn't about winning trophies, the social media coverage got the attention of many coaches who have been following several of our players and is helping facilitate commitments to some great schools. It is also helping to continue the "buzz" on others.The next couple of weeks will prove to be very bountiful!
But, Let's Face It!!!
Winning is great. Kids bonded. Played together and thoroughly enjoyed the total experience. Everyone contributed in some way shape or form to the Gator Success. Total team effort. Not only did they play well, they also handled themselves well. Well-mannered, gentlemen.
