The Baseball Skill Acquisition Summit: Where MLB Comes To Learn

On October 23rd and 24th, at the 2021 Baseball Skill Acquisition Summit, Frans Bosch, Martijn Nijhoff, Bart Hanegraaff, Paul Venner, Rob Gray, and Randy Sullivan will demystify the elusive phenomenon known as athleticism.

Every coach covets athleticism. They recognize it when they see it, but for many, developing athleticism in their players is like trying to teach a goldfish to play the clarinet. In frustration, many coaches and trainers fall into the trap of thinking athleticism is only for the gifted and can’t be developed. Coaches are constantly scrambling to scout, recruit, and select talented athletes. Sometimes they get it right, but more times than not, they miss badly. When you truly understand how to develop athleticism all over the field, you eliminate your misses.

We’ll sift through the complexity of the anatomy, and neurophysiology involved and lay out with crystal clarity, the building blocks at the center of athleticism. But we won’t stop there. We’ll show you simple and actionable ways to immerse your athletes in training experiences that build athleticism fast.

Athletes win championships.

It’s time to stop guessing and hoping the players you choose work out.

It’s time to empower yourself with the methodologies that will make your player development process a slam dunk, can’t miss endeavor.
