BASEBALL PROGRAMS

YOUTH BASEBALL PROGRAMS BUILT TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF ASPIRING PLAYERS

"My son is in their baseball program and it is the best program we have ever been in. He loves the program, is always ready to go (he’s 13) to the 4 sessions a week. He is playing less video games, eating better, getting 9-10 hrs sleep, and his marks have improved immensely! Derek, Coach Nolan and team are not only helping him grow as an athlete but as a well rounded human!"

ATHX x UPLIFT LABS HITTING CLINIC

We've teamed up with Uplift Labs as their FIRST and ONLY Canadian Partner to bring you the next generation of hitting technology for young athletes.

Program led by NCAA Division 1 Catcher Austin Guzzo.

FOCUSED ON THE 5 TOOLS OF BASEBALL

The ATHX program combines 20 years of sport development experience and elite coaching with state-of-the-art technology and innovative training to help our players succeed both on and off the field.

 

Our Academy Model is built to develop the five tools of baseball that great players possess and professional scouts look for:

SPEED

Players with good speed can leg out extra base hits, steal bases, and track down fly balls in the outfield.

ARM STRENGTH

Pitchers with strong arms can deliver the ball with velocity and movement, while infielders can make plays from deep in the hole.

FIELDING

Good fielders have good range, soft hands, and a quick first step.

HITTING FOR AVERAGE

Hitters who can consistently put the ball in play and reach base is an asset to any team.

HITTING FOR POWER

Hitters with good power can drive the ball into the gaps and over the fence for extra-base hits.

OUR PLAYERS AND FACILITY SET THE STANDARD FOR EXCELLENCE
