COVID-19 Statement: While we are hoping the situation in June will be much different we are preparing to take the proper adjustments with classes . It may be necessary to move players to differnt classes as to not overload them. If for some reason the class is unable to be held players will recieve a refund on registration. If the class is cancelled sometime after it starts players will recieve a refund minus any complted class time.
This Camp/Class is designed for incoming and current high school players and college players. The main focus of this camp is to build velocity through enhancing movement patterns (learning how to use your body and arm more efficiently) and through using proven training techniques. Players will refine individual pitching mechanics to develop maximum velocity and control. Pitchers will learn through specialty drills and sport specific strength training how to: Use their bodies to create force, momentum, leverage, sequencing, synchronization, and explosiveness. These methods are backed by current research studies (kinetic & kinematic analysis) and updated training methods. Over the last 20+ years we have developed an advanced throwing protocol, goal setting, and evaluation/monitoring system that is one of a kind. Pitchers will use high-speed video analysis to evaluate mechanics. As well, all pitchers will be taught a proven arm care program that aids in preventing injuries, and improves arm strength, range of motion, and endurance (the training actually helps pitchers reduce the risk of injury by making them functionally stronger and have the ability to handle high workloads). All positions wishing to increase “arm strength” are welcome to attend.
This 20+ year program has seen over 600+ pitchers/position players increase their velocities by an average of 5.5 mph. Some players have seen gains up to 9-12 mph while also improving control, endurance, flexibility, athleticism, range of motion, functional strength, and reducing the risk of injuries! We have had over 100 pitchers break the 90 mph mark, 18 Break the 94 mph mark, and 12 break the 96 mph mark. In 2019 we had 94 players participate in the summer/fall velocity program. We saw 503 mph velocity increase on running throws and an avg increase of 5.4 mph increase in velocity off the mound.
