We are excited to announce the creation of Origin Athletics, a not for profit organization designed to help baseball and softball athletes across the state of Michigan achieve their goals. Formally the Varsity Shop Training Center, Origin will build upon the success and standards of the VSTC and push the expectations of athletic development in the state. With a commitment to continued education, state of the art resources, and a highly accomplished staff, Origin will be at the forefront of athletic development from beginner ball players to the pros.
For 13 years the Varsity Shop Training Center has stood as a pillar in the baseball and softball community. The vision of Marc Secontine and Jim Weissenborn grew from a conversation about a batting cage in a basement, to over a decade of serving the community. Thousands of athletes have come through the door during that time and have benefited from their commitment to providing a quality experience.
With a shift in Direction, Origin Athletics was created. Its goal is to build upon the high standards already established and provide even more opportunities for athletes all over the area.
Our focus and programs will revolve around four separate and distinct baseball and softball customer groups:
Origin Athletics is Oakland County’s premier sports training and instruction facility for baseball and softball players of all ages and abilities.

All of our batting cage nets are collapsible and offer a customized open surface for Team Training which can involve any combination of the equipment listed above, along with bases and target nets.
