Clinics and Camps
Classes and Private Lessons “Over the 10 years Trevor has worked with Jim, Jim is always looking to put player development and health first, Jim championed a road which turned out to be unbelievably successful. From Pony league to high school to Division I college ball, Jim impacted Trevor’s pitching, not only through personal instruction, but maybe more importantly, through staying abreast of leading edge pitching philosophies and training techniques. With Jim, you get more than a lesson, you get expertise”.

Classes and Private Lessons My son Kody McLain is a HS senior RHP, he has been to multiple pitching coaches over the years. Jim Wagner & Warren Bauer were suggested to us by a pitching coach from a So. Cal college. This is the first one that made an immediate impact. When we first met Jim he did an overall review of my son's bodies limitations, capabilities & mechanics. Immediately body adjustments were required, TZAcademy emphasizes strength, explosiveness, speed, quickness arm care and velocity. The atmosphere is energetic with horns, beepers, bells, loud encouraging voices over the blaring on your toes music to keep motivation to strive for another personal record. In just a couple of months his fastball has increased 6 MPH . Jim is invested in his athletes helping him with the collegiate recruiting process. If you are looking for results for your dedicated pitcher to improve at any level TZAcademy in Santa Clarita is the place !!!

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.
Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “We would like to thank you for all the work you put in to make this camp happen for these boys! It was outstanding! We’ve been wanting to send Kyle to this event in Texas, but have not been able to. Thank you so much for finding a way to bring these coaches to Santa Clarita! Kyle learned so much. Thanks to you, Jim, Kyle was already using many of these techniques to better himself and keep his arm/back, etc. protected. There was still more for him to learn. He has been applying his warm-up techniques and stretches and has a different mental outlook on the importance of staying physically conditioned. There was a lot of great information and my husband was happy that you allowed him to stay and learn, as well. This helps him assist Kyle when they work together as he knows what to look for in his posture, release, etc. Thank you Jim, Coach Strom, and Coach Wolforth for bringing such a great educational camp to our boys! We look forward to the next time this camp comes to town so Kyle can participate again.”
Colleagues “Jim Wagner knows arm strength and conditioning, mechanics and pitching philosophy as well as anyone in the country. He is a true student of the game. I would recommend Jim to anyone who is serious about taking their game to the next level”
