About us

NW Futures is committed to aligning today's youth with today's professionals. It is our vision to give children of all ages an opportunity to learn from current and former professionals, as we challenge children to become better players, teammates, and people.

NW Athletic Center and NW Futures South serve as our indoor training facilities where children in the Northwest benefit from clinics, camps, and lessons put forth by professionals. Our staff teaches drills, concepts, and fundamentals that they themselves practice diligently throughout the year. Our training facilities also serves as a Spring practice alternative for teams and clubs, as we see inclement weather in the Northwest nearly eight months out of the year.

When our professionals leave the Northwest each Spring to play for their respective Major League organizations, NW Futures holds 1-week summer camps for kids ages 6-12. These camps are fun and interactive, yet at the same time challenge children on a day-to-day basis through learning how to compete, make adjustments, and ultimately improve both individually and as a teammate.

NW Sports Management Group (NWSMG) is the foundation of NW Futures and all that it entails. NWSMG was founded in 2008 by Major League Baseball Player Agent Nik Lubisich, and it serves as a locally-based baseball agency representing professionals from across the Northwest. Nik's love of baseball and passion to help kids of all ages is what motivates him to invest so much of his time with his youth programs. NW Futures and NWSMG complement each other greatly as children in the Northwest receive unique exposure to both professionals and how they go about their business, along with individually tailored training to improve the unique skill set of each child who steps into our facilities.
