Pinkman Academy

Pinkman Academy


My son did a Hittrax camp and has been seeing Jeff for private hitting lessons. Jeff helped him find the right bat and has improved his swing. The trajectory of where he hits the balls was a big problem for him. My son has seen different trainers over the past several years and my son says that Pinkman Academy has really helped him the most.

Mission: The Pinkman Academy takes responsibility for setting the educational standard for baseball and softball players and coaches. We will instill in our students, that which we require of our selves; a never ending thirst to learn. We will present through our instruction athletic values that honor the game. The game should be fun. Repeated failure is not fun. The inability to master fundamental skill is a primary reason that children leave the game. We will provide excellent athletic instruction for all students to succeed, regardless of their current skill level. We target individual needs. We will assess and provide solutions for complete physical, mental and emotional development. We will continue to grow by employing professional teachers who are devoted to our student's future. We promise and hold ourselves accountable for delivering outstanding results.
