Training Info

Week one will be a testing week that will measure progress and performance. We will establish a personal workout schedule based on the testing results. We will make sure we progress velocity gains and improve mechanics on a weekly basis, we will use videotaping as a tool for your development. all weekly updates and velocity and zone tracking will be posted each week to challenge each other.  Please remember this is advanced class and our expectations is to improve each player, but will not hesitate to let players go who are not working hard or doing work on their own.

Velocity Plus Development

We will use a radar gun for both High School and Youth Development, so many new techniques have been added to develop velocity and will be used thru this program. On a weekly basis we will be incorporating band work, strength work, long toss programs, flexibility programs, weighted balls, and more. We promise increase velocity if program is followed on a weekly base.

 Strike Zone Development

With or without velo, you still need to throw Strikes, our increased Bio Mechanics and extensive drill work, will improve our pitching zone location. With video tape analysis, and throwing and working on grips to location, this is part of the Velo Plus.
