SWAT Monthly News & Upcoming Events

     We are pleased to announce that Chris will be partnering with Edie to run the entire Academy.  "Chris has always been a key contributor over the past 3 years and we felt it was time to give him the reins to help lead the organization.  Chris (along with Shane, Ashley and Anton) has developed a strong presence in our Academy and as we have grown, I recognize that he can longer be an individual contributor.  I needed a partner that could help me drive the vision we have and it's never been bigger than right now so this change makes perfect sense.  We are all thrilled Chris has agreed to make this change" said Edie Thompson, SWAT Academy owner.  Shane and Ashley will continue in their current roles as Directors, with some adjustments to roles their roles but they will be heavily integrated with Chris as assistant managers to position us for growth.  Ashley will be taking the lead role in marketing, communications and events in partnership with Tanya and Shane will continue to be focused on recruiting, player placement, instruction and training, particularly with our Youth Academy.  We are pretty excited to see how Chris, Shane, Edie and Ashley will lead SWAT forward as we continue to grow and evolve as an Academy to achieve some major goals in the upcoming years.

HUGE Thank you to Oklahoma City University for allowing us to host the 1st Annual Big Hitter's Baseball ID Camp at their facility!  It was a super success!  The camp was not just organized and ran smoothly, but we had quality talent there.  SWAT connected people in the industry AND most importantly, we think there's a few players that will get college offers out of it.  Our staff did a wonderful job!  We will keep you posted as players land offers.
Congratulations to Braylen Wimmer!!!

Internship Opportunities

     Just a reminder - we do offer year-round private lessons for hitting, pitching, catching, and fielding for both baseball and softball players of all ages. If you would like to setup a lesson with one of our instructors please give us a call. We are open every day and love to help players master different skills with proper muscle memory that they can use in game situations.


       In an effort to support The Angels Foundation year round, we continue to sell fresh, crushed and bottled olive oil from a local farmer out of California.  This stuff is amazing.  It is private labeled and bottled for the charity so since we all can use oil to cook, saute, and dip away, please consider supporting The Angels Foundation by buying a bottle.  Stop by and visit the facility to see the display and purchase!

       It is also time to start thinking about raising scholarship money for worthy athletes that need some help. We have had a great year helping many families. Families that lost a parent, families dealing with disabilities, families who had a job loss and yet with our support, we helped them through it and kept their kids in structured sports. You can never believe the gratefulness and expression of love we get from the families we help. But like always, there SO many applicants and just not enough to help everyone. We have depleted the majority of our fund and have a large number of applicants awaiting a scholarship so we need your help. We are looking for private or business donors. This is all tax deductible donations and you are helping a family with no middle man. We donate 100% of what we get!  So while we will be hosting our annual Poker tournament in February 2018 and we are still selling olive oil, it is simply not enough. So if you can help, please do. Contact us at trustee@angelsfoundation.net or you can donate directly via PayPal, our link is on The Angels Foundation facebook and website. We appreciate any support that you can offer now. #becomeanANGEL
