Charles Slavik'sblend of experience as both a coach at virtually every level of baseball, combined with advanced and practical knowledge of the strength and conditioning field, allows him to provide the most effective program for players found anywhere.
Thetraining progression is to initially assess the athletes work capacity and general athletic skill level relative to their peer group. From there, Coach Slavik works together with the player to design an individualized training program, essentially a roadmap, to get the player from his current ability level to the level he sees himself at in his dreams. It's a team effort and Coach Slavik takes his client's success and future very seriously.

Proper Conditioning + Sports Specific Training + Sports Skills Training = Success
In sports like baseball, if you have the basic, fundamental athletic skills, you can be up to 16 years old before you start learning the technical aspects of the game itself and still reach your peak.
It is easier to teach an athlete to play baseball than it is to teach a baseball player to be an athlete.
Think Long-Term Athletic Development and not Short-Term Specialization.
Sports Specific Training is a relatively new field. Athletes should never get their training information from someone new to the game or who views it as a niche market.
In the same way a player needs to have both a great skill level and conditioning level coupled together to make a great player, a trainer needs a great background in both the sport and the strength and conditioning field. This allows the trainer to both properly understand the needs of the individual athlete relative to his sport and to effectively implement a program on the athletes behalf. To have one-half of this equation without the other, diminishes the effectiveness of the player, the trainer, and the training program. To view Charles Slavik's credentials as a trainer, Click Here.
Don't short-change your son or daughter, get their training from a nationally recognized leader in the field.

"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." -Theodore Roosevelt
