NW Baseball Academy is a not-for-profit educational corporation under IRS code 501(c)(3). Established in 1996, the Academy provides northwest youth with a positive environment for personal development in the area of athletics. The programs build self-esteem by teaching participants skills such as goal setting and attainment, self-discipline, teamwork and proper physical conditioning. The programs focus on communication, professional conduct, self-motivation and awareness as well as a players ability to accept responsibility for their own decisions. Current programs include summer competitive teams, fall instructional and competitive teams, winter pitching/hitting classes, and year round instructional camps.
Our Mission: To educate youth baseball players on injury prevention, pitching mechanics, strength development, and the art of pitching using the most qualified instructors and computer video analysis.
We help youth baseball pitchers and fielders throw harder, with better control, while reducing their risk to injuries through teaching arm care and proper mechanics with clinics, private/group/team instruction, and computer video analysis.
All of the programs are designed to foster mechanical and mental development. The Academy is an integral part of acceptance to professional or collegiate athletic programs. We are working on adding a page to our site that includes players who have successfully utilized the programs and where they are now. The Academy still plays an important role for many players who are now in professional or collegiate programs.
As a non profit educational organization our goal is to foster the development of young athletes. Each year we strive to raise enough money to financially assist two or three graduating seniors into collegiate baseball programs. Support from the local community is vital to this continuing effort.
