Baseball & Fastball Academy

This Baseball and Fastball academy will enable students the opportunity to follow the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model as outlined by Baseball Canada. This will allow students to reach their full potential as student-athletes, and to develop a love for the game. This objective will be achieved by providing our student-athletes with access to elite level Baseball coaching within a state of the art training facility.
