PRO5 Baseball Academy is in its 7th year of competition. PRO5 Academy is designed for the elite baseball player in the USA and around the world. PRO5 has hosted players and coaches from the Czech Republic, Canada, France, and China. We practice and play our home games at Ting Park in Holly Springs and well as at the USA Baseball Training Complex. Our goal is to prepare players to have success on and off the field at the next level whether it be in college or professional baseball.
PRO5 emphasizes 5 Key Areas of Development:
The foundation to success on and off the field is Character and Leadership. Conversations about character and leadership are integrated into everything we do at PRO5 Academy. Our athletes meet for weekly Leadership Development sessions using Championship Principles as our curriculum. Each month players participate in service projects including being Miracle League buddies, working at area food banks, and Disaster Relief Projects.
PRO5 Players receive Professional Baseball Instruction everyday. Practice plans feature early work, position specific throwing programs & skill work, a team fundamental of the day, and batting practice. In addition to our amazing staff, we frequently bring in guest coaches/consultants that include current and former MLB players and coaches such as Tim Hyers (MLB Hitting coach Texas Rangers), Mike Rikard (Red Sox VP of Scouting), Nick Gorneault (MLB Angels and Scout), Trot Nixon (World Series Champion), and Scott Emerson (Oakland A’s Pitching Coach). To learn more about our staff and guest coaches, check out our Staff Page.
Our programming takes a systematic approach to Strength and Speed development by providing specific key performance indicators that allow for objective analysis of our players’ progress. It’s no secret that strength and physical fitness play a huge role in the quality of your game. PRO5 Academy partners with DiamondFit Performance to ensure that our players are in the best physical condition to achieve their goals.
The framework of our program ensures that players will be challenged in a safe and effective manner, intentionally helping players peak at specific points during their athletic season cycle.
We provide Academic Support guidance and supervision to make sure PRO5 athletes reach their potential in the classroom. While most of our players do aspire to play baseball professionally, we believe that a solid academic foundation is crucial to their success on and off the field. Our student athletes are in a combined 14 different academic programs from our partners at Crossroads Flex High School in Wake County to 100% online programs like The Ogburn School. PRO5 also hosts guest speakers in several areas including Career Development. Previous speakers during our offseason months have featured USA Baseball, Duke Physiotherapy, Durham Bulls AAA, and more.
We believe that the better our Competition is today, the more prepared our players will be to succeed in college and professional baseball.
PRO5 plays a highly competitive game schedule vs JUCO and D2 college programs as well as other nationally recognized baseball academies in FL, GA, SC, VA and AL. Many of our games are played in college and minor league stadiums. We also attend tournaments that allow us to face elite level talent from across the Southeast. PRO5 traveled to Puerto Rico in 2019 for an awesome cultural and baseball experience. We will travel in February 2024 to connect with the baseball community in the Dominican Republic.
