About Our Program

EBA believes that no two athletes are the same, and our program reflects that.  In a state of the art 23,000sq. ft. facility, we offer both private and semi-private training for youth, high school, collegiate, and professional athletes.  Each athlete goes through a detailed screening process to both determine what exactly they need, as well as take measurable baseline numbers to measure improvements.  We are also proud to be partnered with Rick Strickland Baseball to ensure all of our athletes receive an integrated hitting and pitching program with their strength work!  Whether its a return to sport post injury program, strength and conditioning, or baseball specific skill work, EBA has a program for you!
