With a three-time Louisville Slugger Region 21 coach of the year and a scout for the Florida Marlins on its seven-man roster, the staff at Upper Deck Baseball Academy commands years of competitive diamond expertise. The team puts its 8,900-square-foot facility to work assisting budding baseball and softball stars with improvement of their physical, mechanical, and mental capabilities through creative, focused drills. Two Iron Mike pitching machines and two Jugs pitching machines hurl heat down the indoor batting cages, allowing players to work on bat speed and hitting to the opposite field without the awkward eye contact that comes with facing a real pitcher. Players can also have their chops recorded with video swing analysis, allowing for real-time feedback on swing mechanics.

The instructors at Kenpo Karate Institute strive to pass down the wisdom they were given by their mentor, the late Grandmaster S. George Pesare. In 1960, they began teaching karate classes to adults, many of their students becoming world class competitors. Today, kids take classes as well, learning the focus and discipline that can't be taught in thumb-wrestling classes. The staff also teaches specialty classes from time to time, such as women's combat and MMA fighting.
