About the program
We believe that our participating student-athletes benefit from training in one of the premier, baseball performance programs in existence, at any level of the sport. About eighty percent of our high school players participate each year. The program is compatible with playing in summer tournament or showcase events and complementary to participation in fall sports such as football.

Team training and coaches
Our student-athletes train together as team, under the leadership and guidance of coaches Dennis Fay, Joe Loria, and Juan Cruz. We have the highest regard for these coaches and counsel our players to treat their relationships with them as being of transcendent importance, not only to their futures as baseball players but also to their lifelong health and character-development goals.
This program is open to Tomball Kings high school players for the 2023-2024 academic year.
Tuition is $175.00 per month, to be paid monthly via the reception desk at Texas Sports Medicine Center.
What to wear and bring
Players wear a modified version of the practice attire "shorts" as set forth in our dress code and uniform requirements, except that they substitute our "Blue K" training jersey for their Ready Red practice jerseys. Athletic or turf shoes will work best on the training surfaces at the facility.
Players should also bring at least 48 ounces of water with them to each training session.
From time to time players will need to bring gloves, bats, and batting helmets, but these are not needed unless Coaches Fay, Loria, or Cruz tell the players to bring them.
Please be on time for each class. Late arrivals are disruptive to the class and counterproductive for the student-athlete who is late.
Should you ever need to miss or be late for a class, please notify Coach Fay as soon as you know. This will help the coaches and trainers avoid setting up stations that will go unused.
Please commit to regular attendance. Missing classes will deny players information, knowledge, skills, experiences, and adaptations that they will need as athletes. Regular attendance will produce the best results and greatest advancement. We do understand that students may need to miss classes from time to time, of course, for family vacations and other fall activities.
If you will ever miss more than three straight weeks of training or withdraw from the program altogether, you must notify Coaches Philip Wilkins, Corey Goodie, and John Harris.
