The goal for youth pitchers ages 8 to 13 is to have fun pitching. The best way to have your son have more fun pitching is by allowing him to reach his potential for his specific age. In addition to having more fun, reaching his maximum potential also means more fewer walks, less arm injuries and more strikeouts on his resume. This all starts with learning proper pitching mechanics.
Most youth pitchers today pitch far below their potential and end up getting hurt because they learn incorrect mechanics from some parent or coach who teaches them their belief system instead of what has been proven by sports science research. As a result most youth pitchers throw with just their arm, instead of using their bodies… which is what MLB pitchers do. Pitching with just your arm as youth not only reduces velocity and control, but adds to the risk of arm injuries. This explains why nearly 50% of youth pitchers from the ages of 8 to 13 pitch with pain every year.
Using the latest sports science research we have designed our products to show parents and coaches the most effective and simplest way to teach our youth pitchers correct pitching mechanics so the youth pitcher can maximize their velocity which means more strikeouts, reduce the number of walks, and pitch injury free… which ultimately means they will have more fun pitching.
Bringing The Gap Between Fundamentals & Innovations In Pitching.
In 2004 we developed the first evidence-based pitching program based on sports science research, instead of common coaching beliefs. Through this research we've also learned video analysis is still the best and most accurate way to assess pitching mechanics. We not only show pitchers at all levels their faults and the adjustments, but work with there style in order to improve their velocity and control, all while reducing their risk of arm injuries. The true difference about our coaching methods are simple, our clients will truly feel the difference and that's the only true way towards improvement and development.
