2019 Coaches Clinic
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 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!
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 In my 15 years of coaching youth baseball, I have seen many private pitching coaches come and go. Jim Wagner has been a steady presence during all of those years as a premiere pitching coach and arm care specialist. Jim has produced great results with many of his students pitching in college and beyond. But what truly sets Jim apart from the rest is his obvious passion for the art of pitching and his genuine desire to see his students succeed. His infectious enthusiasm helps his students push themselves to reach their full potential all the while teaching them proper mechanics and arm care. How he manages to get kids and teens to adopt pre- and post-pitching routines is impressive considering most probably fight their parents over brushing their teeth! I highly recommend TZAcademy for anyone looking to become a pitcher or further develop their pitching skills. You will not be disappointed!

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!”
