May 28, 2019, Highland, IN-Athletic Performance Factory in Highland is accepting applications for athletes ages 6 to 25 for the 2019 training season. Bobby Morris of Morris Baseball and former professional baseball player Jordan Schafer are working overtime to ready the former Gator’s workout facility into a state of the art indoor training facility for youth athletes.
Schafer explained that he grew up in Highland until age 9 but his family moved to Florida where year-round training opportunities produced faster, stronger players. The former number 1 youth player in America said “working with kids at a young age, we see a huge difference in athleticism between kids here and in the south.” This facility is designed to level that playing field and provide year round training opportunities. Schafer explained during a tour of the 30,000 square foot facility. “We will have an extensive video library, simulators, 3d video, motion analysis and batpath” along with other technology to take training to the next level Schafer stated.
Morris says the partnership was a natural progression due to the growth of his Morris Baseball and Softball Training Center. Morris Baseball currently trains up to 300 youth players per year and is growing every year. “We are maxed” out Morris explained highlighting the need for more space. Morris was palpably excited as he talked about the new technology Athletic Performance Center would bring to region athletes. While the focus will be baseball and softball, Athletic Performance Facility will offer training to any athlete who wants to improve speed, agility and strength. “There is nothing like this in the midwest” Morris stated.
Teams will form in July for a September grand opening and space is limited. For more information, visit The Train APF webiste-www.trainapf.com
