HIGH-PERFORMANCE TEAM SKILL DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS THAT TAKE PLACE AT THE STATE OF THE ART GORDIE HOWE SPORTS COMPLEX. EACH DAY PLAYERS COME TO THE COMPLEX PRACTICES WILL BE AT IGNITE ATHLETIC CONDITIONING, ON THE TURF WITH COACHES, OR ON CAIRNS OR LEAKOS FIELD FOR ON-FIELD TRANING.

Skill development under the guidance of highly experienced and qualified instructors. When able we will begin to travel and expose our players to the scouts and the best baseball events across North America. Each experience will provide our students with an opportunity to compete at a high level, but more importantly, they experience the educational benefits of travel, culture, and develop into autonomous learners.

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays will focus on weightlifting and baseball-specific skill development. On Wednesdays, we will focus on the importance of being a student-athlete. We will be offering a mental health and study session. This will focus on players maintaining their grades and understanding the importance of Academics while being recruited for baseball. We will also have presentations on nutrition, hydration, mental health, and more. Athletes participating in the academy will be required to maintain their grades in school in order to continue attending the baseball-specific training. Furthermore, the academy will be hosted at 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM to allow players the opportunity to attend all regular classes in their respected schools, and train afterward. 

We intend to recruit and choose applicants who aspire to play college baseball. Instructors from the GY academy will work with players to ensure that this becomes a reality for all those who wish to continue post-secondary. The Going Yard coaching staff will use their connections across North America, to help the players to reach their academic and athletic goals. We have a long list of alumni from our training programs who have moved on to play college and professional baseball and we intend to expand this list.
