BPA Hitting Philosophy - 

WHO WE ARE: A disciplined line-up that is relentless in the focus of our daily work. We 100% trust the process and are committed to our routines, drill work, and mental mindset. We know the difference between being a "swinger" and a "HITTER." 

As a team, AND as an individual, we have a daily focus to improve each day. 



  • Creator: Has a mental routine, table setter, 90 feet, short game, speed, OBP & has a plan. Confident.

  • Hybrid: Has a mental routine, Has the ability to set the table and clear it. Understands what the situation calls for & has a plan. Confident.

  • Producer: Has a mental routine, drives in runs, is aggressive, has "juice," & has a plan. Confident.


  • We believe in the next pitch & learning something from it.

  • We believe in tuning in, getting control, having a physical release, slow breathing, and committing to the swing.

  • Set it and forget it. You don't hit, your training does.

The BPA Way - 

Headquartered in Orange County, CA with teams in South OC: San Juan Capistrano/Laguna Niguel, North OC: Tustin/Irvine, Inland Empire: Rancho Cucamonga, San Diego, Carlsbad, Sacramento, Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi & Florida: The Baseball Performance Academy experience provides athletes ages 7-18 a vehicle to develop and improve their baseball skills. It is designed to develop and mold athletes for college baseball. The high school level teams will attend various National college showcases events such as Wilson Premier, USA Baseball, and various private workouts across the country in front of various Division-1, D2, & D3 collegiate baseball programs across the USA. In some cases, some players have been drafted professionally right out of high school.

BPA was founded on the premise of providing an opportunity of top instruction, for players that have a desire to play the game beyond a recreational level. Our purpose is to ensure players learn to play the game the right way and compete at the highest level. We aspire to positively influence a player’s next-level opportunity by providing them with the knowledge and skills required to play the game to the maximum of their potential.

Seeing someone miss an opportunity in their life, especially when it's something they have so much passion and desire to be great at, in our eyes, is a travesty. Preventing this from happening to our players, and continuing to push of program alumni, beyond  where they ever could of dreamed of playing is why we do what we do.
