The Niagara Thunderwolves Showcase Program is comprised of some of the top high school underclassmen in the Western New York region,  with a strong interest in playing college baseball.  Our program offers the opportunity to experience the best teaching, training, promotion, and competition through our first class organization.


Our staff members have college coaching/recruiting experience, and a full understanding of what it takes to compete at the next level, as well as first hand knowledge of the recruiting process. 


Too many times today, programs sell their ability to “showcase” your son.  What those programs fail to realize, is that skills and talent do not always equal success at the next level.  Too many times, winning, competing, and playing fundamental baseball, are sacrificed for exposure.  More and more kids are showing up on college campuses with a lack of general knowledge for the game, and more importantly, an inability to deal with failure when it matters most.


Our program will teach you to be a ball player, not a prospect.  We offer competitive learning opportunities through an atmosphere that is competitively challenging.  We focus on the fundamental development of each student-athlete, both on and off the field, and we create an atmosphere of accountability.


We will prepare your son for the next chapter of his life.

"Coach Ziemecki is an exceptional coach who is highly motivated and committed to not only creating better athletes, but better overall people as well. Throughout my experiences working with him, he was always willing to do whatever it would take to help me become a more developed player. He provides constant feedback to all of his players and creates a hard working atmosphere.  It was always a pleasure working with Coach Ziemecki because he has a passion for always wanting to learn new ideas and a constant desire to make his players better and work harder every single day.  I was very fortunate to have Coach Ziemecki as my coach, he helped me get to where I am today."
