The High Performance Baseball program is designed for athletes who are more than just “interested” in development – they are committed to it.
This isn’t a casual program. Athletes in this program train with intent, passion, and purpose. When everyone buys into that, it creates an environment that is positive and fun. Our goal everyday is to encourage a culture that makes development contagious
This program is a combination of high level, position specific skill work in conjunction with a structured strength and conditioning program.
Players must be at the Elite or AAA level in order to participate.
All athletes will partake in:
- Athletic assessment
- Daily movement prep
- Hitting program
- Throwing program
- Strength and conditioning program
In order to truly and objectively measure athlete progress, each athlete will have a digital and physical log of all personal performance metrics.
