Philosophy

Thunder Baseball Academy was established on the founding principle of changing lives through quality instruction in a positive environment. It operates under the belief most kids want to be successful but do not understand how to achieve that success.

Thunder Baseball Academy is a developmentally based association and its coaches are not a win at all cost group. The coaching staff believes that education not only in baseball, but also in life situations is the bridge that links the gap between kids wanting to be successful and teaching them how to be successful. This is done in an environment that encourages mistakes in practice and allows each athlete the freedom to be successful.

Academy owner, Darron Cox and his coaching staff have been around some of the greatest minds in the baseball world. They have learned from their wisdom and each of their experiences in the Major Leagues, Minor Leagues, College, High School and Little League. Coach Cox has been fortunate enough to have coached Major League Rockies players Matt Holiday, Brad Hawpe, Ryan Spilborghs, Chris Iannetta and Ubaldo Jimenez to name a few.

Whether you’re preparing for high school baseball, training for your college team or working out in the off season, Thunder Academy’s world-class coaches, baseball training philosophy and baseball training facilities will provide the tools you need to make it to the next level.
