Helping athletes develop their skills and presence on the mound is a passion for many 5 Tool instructors. For baseball pitchers wanting to significantly develop their game this off-season, registration is now open for multiple baseball pitching academies. The academies will focus on physical mechanics as well as the mental component of the game specifically geared for pitchers. Each academy is tailored for the athletes’ age and skill level.

In addition to the pitching component of the Total Player Development class, there are 3 Baseball Pitching Academies, all held on Sundays.

High School Pitching Academy

Bruce Bowling and Cal Bowling will lead the high school academy. Widely regarded among the area’s best pitching instructors, the class will provide significant individual attention to each athlete over the entire off-season. The high school group will meet at 7 p.m.. on Sunday evenings for a 90 minute class which will run from November 5 until the high school season begins in March (excluding holiday weekends).
