Our Mission

Elite Baseball was founded to give baseball players of all ages the opportunity to reach their maximum potential as athletes.  At every age group that we coach we have the goal of preparing our players for the next level and step of their baseball careers.

Our two indoor facilities provide an environment for improvement on every aspect of our players’ game from hitting and pitching, to speed and agility training.  Our showcase teams and camps, as well as our college consulting, give our high school athletes the best possible chance of achieving their dreams of playing college baseball.
