The Baseball Academy is a skills based academy, which specializes in high performance training and skill development. In addition to our high performance approach, the program is designed to prepare each athlete for life long involvement in the sport. Skill development sessions take place at Optimist Park and Currie Field during the warm months of the school year. As the seasons change, students move indoors to train in the Martin Academy Hitting Facility and Evraz Place.
Skill development is built into the school day under the guidance of highly experienced and qualified instructors. In addition, students will have the potential to experience a fall schedule and winter experience as they proceed through their high school journey. In recent years, our winter experience has included competitions in California, Arizona, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World and Cuba. Each experience provides our students and opportunity to compete at a high level, but more importantly they experience the educational benefits of travel, culture and develop into autonomous learners.
The Academy Baseball program is designed to be a compliment to the programs offered in our province. Our program does not overlap with a student’s bantam or midget club teams. Once May arrives, players will simply continue to receive their education and develop their skills within the school day.
Students in the baseball stream are grouped based on grade level to ensure we meet and exceed curriculum outcomes efficiently. Those who aspire to play college baseball receive the necessary support from our Academy instructors. We take great pride in educating students and their families about college opportunities for their child. Our alumni list of college athletes expands each year. As students’ progress through the program, their experiences on and off the field will develop them into self-confident “academy men” who are committed to improvement as student athletes and community leaders.
