2018 Coaches Clinic
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “I was thoroughly satisfied with the camp. The personalities of the two leaders were memorable and entertaining at the same time. The fact that you had older pitchers at the camp were very motivating to Jack as well. He has a tremendous base of knowledge to work from in an effort to realize his potential going forward.
I would say that the biggest “ah-ha” that both Jack and I received was the need to become a great athlete. It sunk in and I believe he’ll be willing to work at it according to the process given. I will not hesitate to have him attend in 09 if offered.”
Classes and Private Lessons Jim, I know that if it weren’t for you and your commitment to both Theo and Bobby, they would not have had the successes that they’ve enjoyed over the years. From day one at Meadow’s Park, I’ve always trusted you and believed in what you do. We (Santa Clarita) are very lucky and fortunate to have you looking out for our young pitchers. Continued success to you!
Also, I asked Bobby and he would like to continue with your program in November and of course he would not miss it for anything, so please count him “IN”. Last year, with your program, his arm was in prefect ready shape and he didn’t miss a game or practice due to injury. I attribute his success to the fact that he consistently kept his arm conditioned through participating in your program. I would say off the top of my head that he might have been the only pitcher who did not suffer from some type of injury last year!
Thank you for all that you do for our boys in keeping them safe and injury free!
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “You ran a terrific camp. As you know, we recently sent my son Hunter to a boot camp at Ron’s baseball ranch in Texas and I have a Ron Wolforth DVD collection which I have viewed many times, but I had never seen Ron teach in person until this past weekend. What a treat! Both he and Brent Strom make an unbeatable combination. Add your expertise to the mix and it made for a great learning experience.
Ron communicated very plainly and his upbeat style made it easy to absorb his message. Brent is direct and experienced. As a former major league pitcher, he brought instant credibility and taught his pitching lessons with a great sense of humor and a little salty language. Both Ron and Brent captured the boys attention and held it. They made the boys listen, learn, and laugh.
The Elite Pitcher’s Bootcamp introduced the concepts and training techniques that have proven effective in developing more complete and healthy pitchers. Over the course of the three day camp, players were taught the essential elements that
should lead to greater velocity, improved core body strength, and increased flexibility. The players also learned proper arm care in order to reduce the chance of injury.
The camp integrated the why and the how. First, the players learned the reasons for the various training and then they went through the drills. The sessions were well designed and blended the right amount of learning and doing.
Jim, I thought you nailed it and so did Hunter. He was invigorated and sore by Sunday afternoon.
Many thanks and a job well done.
Classes and Private Lessons My daughter Anessa has been going to Jim Wagner and TZAcademy for over 4 years now. In fact, we still have his postcard that he sent after our first visit when she had just turned 7 years old. This seems like yesterday, yet Anessa has developed into a solid pitcher over the years. This is in part due to Jim and his pitching philosophy.
Jim incorporates arm care into each session which as a parent it is very important for me. Anessa plays baseball year round on a club team so it is important that she learns about arm care/ develops insight into different pitching styles and is able to stretch and take good care of herself. Jim has done this and beyond while (most of all) making it fun! Anessa loves coming to TZAcademy. She is able to set goals/reach them and have a good time while working hard. Jim has become a support to Anessa in the world of baseball and has often come to her games and inquired about how she has pitched during tournaments. He cares for his clients and above all has a true passion for his work. This shows and is very much appreciated. I highly recommend TZAcademy to anyone interested and have really enjoyed watching TZAcademy ans Anessa grow over the years!
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “Thanks for putting on such a fantastic camp. It was very well organized, and the wealth of information that Ron and Brent brought to the table was truly mind-boggling. It was definitely worth the long drive up to Santa Clarita (the drive home was actually a very quick 2 hours!!), and I know that Jonathan got a lot out of it. I’ve tried to teach him that pitching is really a life-long learning process, and that he needs to continually strive to expose himself to new ideas and techniques in order to keep growing as a pitcher. The Boot Camp this past weekend was the perfect example of that, and we’ve had a lot of conversations since we got home about all the things he learned. So it definitely had the desired impact!”
