Welcome to RIPS Baseball Training Complex
RIPS Baseball Training Complex trains over 200+ players a week on hitting, pitching, catching, and infield. We also run camps on weekends and conduct indoor training for our RIPS Brewers teams.
Aaron Horrocks decided in 2003 to restructure the Brewer program to engulf all ages 12U-18U under one umbrella. Getting a top notch facility with great coaches, instructors and a formula to get players Bigger, Better, Faster, and Stronger was our goal.
With having a plan for the athletic side, it was time to implement the educational side. Josh Kutz, former Brewer, Seattle University catcher and Kennedy graduate, handled our Educational Workshops for all of our student-athletes, in the begining. Now he has handed over those duties to Andrew Summerville, 2014 Grad at Lakside HS, and future Standford scholarshiped student-athlete. Andrew, like Josh, will concentrate on time management, organizational skills, how to study, and staying ahead of the curve. Some organizations talk about education...we wanted to make it a priority. It's life changing and it's FREE.
Dave Wainhouse, Kyle Boddy, Ryan Smith, and Cody Aden are heading our Pitching Instruction. Their techniques range from mental preparation for starters and relievers, setting up hitters, conditioning for pitchers, and fielding their position. Kyle (Driveline Baseball) offers high-speed video analysis of pitchers and has presented at the Ron Wolforth Ultimate Coaches' Bootcamp. Dave Wainhouse is currently the Pitching Coach for Seattle University.
The Winter Workout Program (WWOP) is another outstanding vehicle to get the ballplayers the proper skills for hitting and fielding. This includes: 2- 3 days a week of one hour Hitting Instruction in groups of three (Horrocks) and 3 days a week of one hour Conditioning (Boddy/Driveline Baseball); at least 5 two hour Brewer Camps including Pitching, Catching, Hitting and Defense (November-March); 4 one hour Educational Nights (November-February). This program will run October thru March. This program is only for current and future Brewer players. We feel we can improve the ballplayers' core strength, speed and agility, provide him with the fielding techniques it takes to become an elite fielder, and give him the foundation to hit with the best. This is how we get our players Bigger, Better, Faster, and Stronger.....we outwork everybody else!
