Florida Baseball Institute

A professional approach to baseball development.

Assess | Train | Excel

Our baseball and softball training programs are founded on the principle that for a player to excel we must first assess the current skill level and then design an individualized development program for each player. If the player has an intense desire to excel, the training program will provide the guidance the player needs to reach his or her potential.

Skills Training

Baseball and softball players will have their current skill level assessed by our highly experienced, professional coaching staff. During assessment and training the staff have the benefit of the state of the art technology and video. These are the training aids used by MLB players.

Performance Training

Outstanding players train physically as well fundamentally. Because fundamental skill is enhanced by speed, power, balance and agility, performance training is critical to the overall development of the player. Cooper Sports Performance, led by renowned performance coach Dr. Josh Cooper, provides vital performance training to our Fbi athletes.

Cognitive Skills Training

To reach our potential as a player we must develop the focus and mental toughness it takes to succeed in competition. To be a skilled hitter in baseball and softball visual skills must also be trained. Our players can improve their focus through NeuroTracker training system. Hitters improve their visual skills by training with our Game Sense system.
