The Albuquerque Baseball Academy offers four programs for its players. Sluggers, ABA Elite, Summer Select, and Fall Showcase. Each program is designed with player development at the core, which translates into ABA's subsequent leveled programs. The programs offered at the ABA are designed to enhance and build on the skills and development of each player.
Each year, the Albuquerque Baseball Academy selects a total of roughly 15 teams for its 9u-14u Sluggers, ABA Elite, Summer Select, and Fall Showcase programs. Each team is trained, coached, and managed by various individuals within the Albuquerque baseball community, most having collegiate or professional experience, which assures our players are surrounded by those with real game knowledge and higher-level baseball acumen.
Our training programs focus around player development and baseball IQ, preparing our players for experience in multiple field positions and varying facets of the game. From individual instruction with our group of highly-qualified instructors to weekly team practices, our players are guaranteed exposure to the challenges and rewards players routinely encounter.
Preparing your player to advance to the collegiate level can be overwhelming, confusing, and uncertain. With the majority of our staff having played at the collegiate level and above, we are positioned to guide our players and their families through the recruiting and promoting process from their high school programs into collegiate programs.
Throughout the year, we offer multiple camps focusing on field positions (Bat Speed, Power Arm, Drive Line), holiday camps, as well as premium camps hosted by Rake City, and a handful of camps hosted by former players and focused on fundraising for our ABA families in need.
The Albuquerque Baseball Academy is located in the Albuquerque Field House. With 14 cages, HitTrax data-capture and simulation system, two outdoor training fields, strength and conditioning facilities, and indoor turf access, the Albuquerque Baseball Academy is equipped to develop our players year-round in every facet of the game.
Each week, the ABA selects a player (or players) who exemplifies the mission of our academy whether its on the field, in the classroom, or around our community.
This week’s player(s) of the week is Grant Smith. Grant, a junior shortstop from St. Pius X High School, recently committed to New Mexico State University. Grant has been a member of the ABA program since he was 12 years old.
