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 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!

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 Coach Wagner from TZAcademy really helped me this winter. After just a short period of time working with him, he helped me tremendously. I now throw 90 mph and I am on the way to faster speeds by focusing on just a few things that he asked me to do. He filmed me with high speed video to pinpoint exactly where I needed to focus. Then he gave me a list of exercises and things to do during my workouts and bullpens. I am really thankful that I found out about him.
