Performance Training

Our 360° Philosophy entails training the complete athlete, not just parts. The Performance Training programs are designed to bridge the gap from the training room to the baseball field through functional training. Players train for balance, agility, core stability, power, and speed, and learn to apply these skills to baseball movements. The innovative programs are unique to the Woodall Baseball Academy, and combine the latest in athletic performance training.
Baseball requires a unique blend of rotational strength, stability, lateral quickness and speed. Baseball movements require more than just jumping and running, or pure linear power. Our Baseball Strength and Speed Program is designed for the baseball athlete, focusing on rotational power and stability as well as other unique demands that baseball requires of our body.
Our players learn posture and core stability with specific baseball positions, and then integrate more complex movement patterns focused on creating a stronger and more explosive baseball player. Using various modalities and tools like the TRX Suspension and Rip Trainer, players learn to stabilize through movement leading to better mechanics, power transfer, and speed through the hitting and throwing movements.

Silver Sluggers Strength & Speed Program
w/ UW Health Sports Performance

The Woodall Baseball Academy and Silver Sluggers Baseball is proud to offer a Winter Strength & Speed program, offered by the UW Health American Center.
Consistent training for strength and speed is a necessity for any player to obtain a high level of success in baseball.  Athletic Performance training for the youth athlete increases functional strength, running speed, agility, and minimizes risk of injury. Baseball is a very difficult game to play, but increased strength, speed and agility makes competing in this game much easier.  We highly recommend our players participate in some level of strength and speed training throughout the year.

Silver Sluggers is excited to offer weekday strength/speed training with UW Health Sports Performance.  Training options for our players this Winter (December 2017 -March 2018) are at a greatly reduced rate (over 50% off from standard pricing) and offered with multiple weekday options.  Our special Silver Sluggers rate is a combination of discount through UW Health and subsidy by Silver Sluggers to reduce the fee even more for our players.

At this time, we have a limit of 5 players per age group (see  age groups below).  The first 5 players in each age group to register are guaranteed a spot in these training sessions.
