2017 Holiday Training and Pitching Camp
Classes and Private Lessons There’s not a more conscientious Pitching Instructor in Southern California. From his generous and supportive approach, to his relentless pursuit of the most cutting edge training and arm care protocols, Jim Wagner is exceptional in every way. He helped my son become a more athletic and explosive pitcher, all the while encouraging his love for the game. Beyond all of this, he gave my son a gift that transcends baseball. He taught him a work ethic. Jim Wagner gave my son an understanding of what is required for those who pursue excellence

Elite Pitcher’s Boot Camp “I enjoyed the entire camp but specifically I really enjoyed the video analysis and the hip mobility circuit. I highly recommend coming to the boot camp because the instructors really do know what they are talking about and I got way more then I expected to get out of it”
Classes and Private Lessons Prior to linking up with Jim at TZAcademy I was dealing with a pinch in my right bicep tendon (front of shoulder) …after just 3 weeks of training new movement patterns using revolutionary drill work, I was not only throwing without discomfort but now throwing with more velocity. I was 90 – 93 mph prior and for the first time in my pro career I hit 95 mph in just 1 month of working with Jim at TZAcademy….I could not stress enough the importance of proper movement patterns to improve efficiency, health and to reach one’s max ceiling of peak performance. Jim provides not only the “whats” but the “why’s” of what we are doing. He truly cares about his clients and providing us with the best of the best when it comes to helping us reach our peak performance levels. He goes above an beyond traditional pitching coaches and brings in peak mental performance coaches, top trainers, and bio-mechanical experts to help ensure that we are receiving the best instruction possible.
I just went into my 3rd professional season not only more physically prepared but more mentally prepared than ever
before. I have been dominating the competition thus far, leading the league in strikeouts and my walks are down by 75% from previous seasons. New opportunities have came about in just 3 starts of the season. Winter ball job offers from Dominican Republic and Venezuelan teams which for those unfamiliar, it is the highest level of baseball one can play other than the Major Leagues. I have never been drafted, never have I played for an affiliated minor league team. I started at the independent ball level and in just my 3rd season have had the privilege of playing winter ball in Mexico with MLB veterans and now opportunities to climb higher and can’t help but think that my off season work at TZAcademy had some influence in my continued success. All I can say is that I envy the young kids who have already started down this path. I just hope that other kids coming up hold on to their visions/dreams and consistently persist with confidence until they materialize. There’s no feeling worse than looking back and regretting that you could of dug deeper.

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!”

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”.
- Warren Bauer (Son, Trevor, was a 1st round draft pick of the Arizona Diamondbacks and is currently with the Cleveland Indians)
