The Northern Alberta Xtreme U18 men’s baseball program was started in August 2020 under the direction of former MLB pitcher, two time Canadian Olympian, and current NAX baseball head coach Mike Johnson.
NAX student-athletes train five days a week over the course of the school year from September-August both outdoors and at indoor training facility 5 Tool Fieldhouse. Under the direction of Mike Johnson, our athletes receive some of the best individual and team training in Western Canada.
NAX Baseball Staff build a competitive game schedule that considers strength of competition as well as player exposure to maximize student-athlete opportunity within the game setting. These games are played against other baseball academies and minor baseball teams across B.C., Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
The fundamentals of a successful baseball player often start with off-ice development. At NAX our student-athletes engage in workouts programs such as flexibility, strength training, and conditioning at the state of art facility 5 Tool Fieldhouse, under the guidance of Barry Butt and his Premier Strength staff. Athletes also partake in nutrition classes, culture days/team builders, and Baseball 101 classes to ensure our student-athletes possess the proper tools to ensure their success on and off the field, both while at our program and after.
