There is nothing like our complete facility in Canada, but there are some facilities that have some of our pieces. When you say you are looking for something like "our facility," what aspects or function are you looking for?
I would like to have my sons mechanics evaluated by a facility similar to yours. I would also like to know if where to get specific exercises and information on the proper mechanics and how to go about making sure the body is taken care of. There is so much information all over the palce and its hard to know what is truth and what is sales and your website and facility have the best reputation of any I have come across.

I looked around, but didn't find anything.
You might want to contact the Canadian Baseball Federation. There are some biomechanics labs in Thunder Bay, Windsor, and Ottawa, but I don't know if they anaylze baseball pitchers. There also might be some high-level pitching instructors in Ontario, but I just don't know.
Ideally, your son would be able to get a biomechanical evaluation and functional strength training instruction from visiting our complex in Birmingham. It is far away, but if you ever get the opportunity, you should consider it.

Hi, Sports Performance Centres, ON, Canada works with baseball athletes, but also elite athletes in general. www.sportsperformancecentres.com. We do not posssess a "pitching lab" but use video analysis and functional evaluations when working with pitchers.
But i do agree contacting the Canadian Baseball Federation is also a good bet.
