One of the test dates will be at a Trosky Camps and the other dates will be held by the Regional Directors.


  • 5 Tool Development Model: The Trosky 5 Tool Development model is based on the concepts of Teach, Test, Train & Develop. A model built on intent, accountability, and culture. The first method used in this model is the 5 Tool player card. Players receive a 5 Tool player card at the Trosky showcase camps and are filled out by the players after they test the 5 tools. Players grade themselves noting where they stand among their peers and amongst elite athletes. The card evaluates and grades the player’s body, tools and athleticism, noting strengths and weaknesses. The second component of the card is the Trosky 5 Tool training system. The training system directs each player to the specific training methods to incorporate into their daily training routine to take their tools to the next level. The final component of the model is the Trosky 5 Tool Calendar, a highly defined training calendar used daily to keep players on target and aligned with their specific training needs and specific training goals. Players are held accountable through shareable online documents, the 6th Tool culture and through the 6th Tool Nation email blasts. Click Here To Learn More
