Dave Griffin Baseball School is pleased to announce the addition of our sports performance studio. The studio will host group and individual sessions focused on science based and data driven programming.

The crown jewel of the studio will be the Proteus Motion Machine. Proteus Motion is used to evaluate, train, and improve all levels of fitness and sports performance needs. All reps on the machine are tracked and evaluated based on weight, power, acceleration, and deceleration. Every participant can create their own profile where their progress is tracked. Individualized reports and programming suggestions are generated on the results of assessments and exercises completed.

Best baseball school in NWI. The coaches really know baseball. Dave Griffin’s baseball school turns kids into athletes. I send my son here, and wouldn’t trust anyone else.

Dave Griffin's Baseball School is a great facility with even better instructors. The instructors create a relaxed environment for players of all ages to grow and succeed. After receiving pitching lessons for two years at Dave Griffin's Baseball School, I feel I have grown tremendously as a pitcher and a person.

Courtney Blackwell, Purdue Northwest Softball

Dave really knows his stuff. He can instantly see the qualities in every player.

Dave Griffin's baseball & softball school offers a great experience to kids of all ages. Both of my sons began taking lessons from Dave Griffin at the age of 8 and one of them is a freshman for a Division l baseball team and the other is playing varsity in high school. Dave Griffin has a great understanding of baseball techniques and he keeps the fundamentals simple for the younger players and he expands the concepts as the player matures. He also has taught my boys what it takes to compete at high levels. Dave teaches his baseball concepts to the other instructors and has developed a strong baseball school. Dave Griffin and his instructors have a great ability to build strong relationship with all kids. Many of their former players and students keep in contact with him or his instructors for baseball advice. Dave's baseball school and teams have been a very positive experience for our family.

Perry Manous, Parent

Is a great place to go and get your good player made in to a great player
