What Makes My Pitching Velocity Formula Different And More Effective? It's All Based On The Latest Sports Science Research.
In 2004 I developed the first evidence-based pitching program based on sports science research, instead of common coaching beliefs. Through this research I've also learned video analysis is the only accurate way to assess pitching mechanics, showing pitchers at all levels their faults and the adjustments that will improve their velocity and control, all while reducing their risk of arm injuries.
How I Can Help
Our instructional videos and books are based on the latest sports science research that has PROVEN that pitching velocity is the result of mechanics and not arm strength.
We focus on the power of videotaping since the pitching motion is a complex high speed action whose movements CAN NOT be accurately evaluated using just the naked eye.
Personal Video Analysis
If you want to know exactly why you can't MAXIMIZE your velocity or why your arm sore then our Video Analysis service will point it out.
We do a side-by-side split-screen voice over analysis using video analysis software. We compare amateur pitchers to major league pitchers so they can understand how and why they can improve by making suggested and proven mechanical adjustments.
Coach Mills and his son Ryan provide one-on-one instruction for pitchers at their facility in Scottsdale, AZ. They offer 1 and 2 day comprehensive sessions based on age.
The focus is on videotaping during the session for feedback on making adjustments based on sound, scientific, mechanical principles. Please contact us by clicking the link below.
New Pitching Formula guarantees velocity and improvement: Learn why new research reveals why today's pitching instruction is ineffective and dangerous. This is why 50% of Little League and high school pitchers regularly pitch with pain. My new pitching formula based on this new research virtually guarantees quick velocity improvements by using the body instead of just the arm, so the arm stays healthy and injury free. Learn why arm strength is not a factor for improving pitching velocity but why explosive strength is. Learn why weight training is ineffective and dangerous. Learn how pitching mechanics fault recognition using simple videotaping sessions is the most highly effective tool for pitching improvement and for less risk of injury, and how easily parents and coaches can learn to use video analysis correctly.
From who: Me, Coach Mills, a former big league pitcher and researcher with 30 years of experience. I've been online since 1996, and I've learned from sports scientists since 2004 why most of today's pitching instruction is seriously flawed, doesn't work and is possibly dangerous. I'm regarded as one of a handful of pitching gurus nationally, and I'm the first traditional main-stream pitching instructor who turned to sports science seeking evidence and better solutions to help pitchers improve faster, while reducing arm injuries. I'll show you why weighted balls, long toss, weight lifting, pitching drills and less mound pitching has not only reduced control and pitching skills, but has let to less improvement and an epidemic of more arm injuries than ever.
My motto: "If you do what every body else is doing you will get what they get... mediocrity."

Youth Pitcher Exhibits Explosive Pitching Mechanics
Here is a great example of what I consider to be a youth pitcher with explosive pitching mechanics. This pitcher is 10 years old, 4 ft. 6″ and 68 lbs. and produces mid to upper 50’s velocity. Many parents and coaches at the youth level spend a lot of time with pitchers so they can […]

What People Are Saying About Me
"I am a practicing orthopedic surgeon and pitching coach at a high school in Houston. I use your techniques and philosophies in my coaching and in my orthopedic practice. I played Division 1 baseball before entering medical school and I can testify that the pitching instruction today is no better than when I played 30 years ago. (You are the exception)
