1:1 Training

1:1 & Small Group Training

1:1 Training Description

Most players are looking for a consistent and results-driven plan. Our 10-lesson package pairs you with the same* instructor for continuity and the ability to get better under the same tutelage each session. For those players who are looking to see serious results, this is Blizzard Baseball Academy’s #1 and most recommended offering.

Group Training Description

The group hitting lessons are tailored for groups of 2-4 players and can be scheduled around your schedule.

Typically, players want to focus on hitting in their group sessions, but we can implement all aspects of your game including pitching and defense into all of your training sessions.


Monthly Training

Monthly Group Training Info

Training Description (4 sessions)

Group hitting lessons will focus around the main points of the swing: stance, separation & balance (load) and bat path to contact.  Balance, hand-eye coordination, quick hands, using lower half, drill work and batting practice will be our focus into every lesson.

After 45 minutes of work, players will then move onto their defensive portion of the training session with focus on pre-pitch set up, footwork, hand work, hand-eye coordination and drill work.

The group training is open to players age ranging from 10u-18u.  Players will be grouped age appropriately.  Coach to player ratio is 1:6

Extended Training

Elite Hitting Extended Training
Elite Pitching Extended Training
Elite Catching Extended Training

Extended Training is for small groups looking for one or more training sessions leading up to their high school and or youth season.  Any player (not just Blizzard players) are welcome to sign up.  Groups have a smaller coach to player ratio and are a little more advanced and are geared towards to the dedicated and determined baseball player.
