The St. Thomas More Baseball Academy is operated in partnership with the St. Francis Xavier High School academy. The academy operates for the entire school year beginning in September and ending in June.
STM baseball academy athletes develop all baseball fundamentals during our outdoor and indoor training sessions. These include: throwing, pitching, fielding, catching, and hitting. Daily agility, stretching, and athletic training takes place to continue to "build the athlete". Also incorporated into our program are classroom sessions which include offensive and defensive strategies.
Throughout the school year students also take part in PE classes to expose them to a variety of other sports such as soccer, swimming, badminton, basketball, volleyball, and floor hockey. Health class is also delivered through the academy sessions.
Rob Boik is the director of both the FX and STM academies. Rob has coached locally at the Midget AAA level for over 10 years and coached Team Alberta at the Canada Cup, Western Canada Summer Games, and Canada Summer Games.
Our lead teacher is Mr. Anthony Qaqish. Mr. Qaqish is responsible for delivering the PE and health curriculum to the STM baseball academy students.
