DG Sports Performance: Building a Better Athlete
At DG Sports Performance, we help our athletes reach their maximum athletic potential. Our focus is on building the entire athlete from their mental game to their mechanics. It’s this holistic approach to training that has helped our athletes reach their goals because the sport of baseball is a game of failure. Even the best players in the world have more outs than hits over the course of a season!
DG Sports Performance offers camps, private hitting, fielding and batting lessons for athletes living in the greater Houston area. Book a lesson online using our online tool. Or, call us at 409.338.1378.
