Welcome to the PowerHouse Family
meet the team
PowerHouse Sports was founded in 2018 after Mike Montville decided to take his passion for baseball and athletic performance to another level. As the dedicated training facility for his NEB-NH players (a competitive baseball program with a mission to develop players for college and pro ball), Mike wanted to expand that passion beyond the team-level. With a background in baseball, football and strength training, he created this training facility to offer specific skills training as well as physical training to maximize potential and minimize injury risk in each athlete. Here at Powerhouse there is no gimmicks or get results quick promises. What separates Powerhouse is the environment, the coaching, and more than anything - We CARE more than anybody else. If you want to be the best version of yourself, Powerhouse is the place to train.
