online guided training course for continued support and training for the remainder of the year.
Takes place at Method Park in RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA for Rising Freshman through College
*younger players will be approved on a case-by-case basis.
"I learned many things from our first week. Many things that we did including balance beam, hanging, get ups all can be implemented and trained throughout my day even walking barefoot. You don’t always need specific equipment but rather 'use what I have'."
"Sprinting and other skills can be trained by playing games and I really enjoyed this. It made it more fun and relaxing and I felt I focused more. With my throwing I learned about my high elbow and late rotation. These are key things I can work on and improve on. The ropes really helped me to understand the importance of being relaxed and aware of my surroundings."
"Owning a movement and not just doing it will allow me to correct and know how my body works. Most importantly I need to have intent in things I do so I can get the most out of it and not waste time and not get better."

SBA Camp Blueprint
Each Athlete is Unique
A series of comprehensive assessments will be performed to identify your strengths and weaknesses.
Pairing your needs and goals, we'll determine what’s most important for you to work on first.
Your customized training plan will be created incorporating your specific needs, priorities and goals.
Performing at a high level on the baseball field day in and day out requires MORE than time on the practice field and in the weight room.
In your first three days of this action & information packed camp, we will get to work on what is really required to keep your body ready and available to perform at or near your peak every day.
And you'll learn much more than the basics!
Expect to address topics such as:
What you do to train and prepare yourself for a game is important - not all exercises and drills are created equal. Learn which ones you should be doing and the ones to avoid.
The way in which you perform movements and exercises is often more important than the movements themselves. Identify these key aspects.
Strength is important, but valuable only if you possess the coordination to use it. Coordination is the most overlooked aspect of skill development.
Flexibility is necessary but the benefits require building the strength to support it. Should you do static or dynamic stretching? Or both? Or neither?
Mobility is critical to staying healthy but does not guarantee high level movements. Great mobility should be a consequence of proper training not the goal.
Arm care is necessary, but needs to be accompanied by entire body care. Your arm is just one part of the complex full body movement of throwing a baseball.
Weighted balls - good or bad? Harmful or helpful? Do they really build velocity? What about arm fitness? Are they a tool you should have in your toolbox?
Warm-ups are designed to keep you from getting hurt, so why isn’t yours working? What elements does a good warm-up contain?
If you aren’t putting in the reps, then your skills won’t improve. Experts claim 10,000 hours of practice = mastering a skill. Guess what; there’s more to it than just putting in the time. Learn why the experts are wrong and how you can develop skills faster.
If you are putting in the work, you need to spend time recovering. What are the best methods and why? Which ones are you doing wrong and how can you make them work for you?
Arm strength vs arm speed. What’s the difference? Which one do you want? Do you have to choose?
TYLER DAVIS, Texas Rangers
"I wanted someone that would help push me to try new things, get myself out of my comfort zone.
Dan has helped me to grow as a professional and to have a better understanding of how my body works best as a baseball player, as well as collecting data about how I perform to optimize my skill set on the field of play.
If you truly have the desire to improve every day you will thrive and working with Dan Kopitzke is the right thing for you to do."
Now's the time to start Building a High Performing, Resilient Body.

“I have just finished my first week with Coach Dan. He has brought a new perspective on how to not only pitch but move the body and how to train in that way. After just one week my body feels much better and my understanding of the game has grown immensely. I will be looking forward to working with him well beyond this season.”

"Training with Dan Kopitzke has been paramount to my success as a baseball player. Dan is passionate about providing all the resources necessary for the players to reach their full potential. It's an atmosphere that breeds better players and better people."
"While having had success with baseball prior to starting the training process with Dan I was at what felt like my limit of potential for the knowledge I had at the time. That was not the case. From day one I was evaluated and my limits began to be pushed and tested each and everyday. Within one Summer I went from being a “Soft Lefty to a legitimate “Upper 80’s LHP” even touching my first 90-91’s. None of this would have been possible without Coach Dan."

- I will assess your current capabilities and physical restrictions through a series of assessments. You will communicate to me, your goals and concerns and briefly describe who you are as a ballplayer.
- I will craft your personalized plan and you'll begin implementing it into your training with my guidance, ensuring that you understand exactly how to apply it.
- These lessons will be reinforced over your on-site days and beyond, arming you with the knowledge and confidence to attack your training for the rest of the year with me and the on-line course.
"Dan's training protocol is unmatched and I wouldn’t trade the past two Summers training with him for anything. Some of the guys I trained with are now some of my best friends. Thank you for everything, Coach Dan. I wouldn’t be the person or baseball player I am today without you."
