Most high school pitchers are frustrated because they feel they should be throwing with much higher velocity despite lifting weights, doing long toss, and/or using training aids. Not to mention nearly 50% of high school pitchers pitch with pain every year. Most are leaving 5-7 mph (or more!) in velocity on the mound.
Research has proven that neither weight lifting or long toss will improve pitching velocity… despite what most coaches are preaching. What we’ve learned from thousands of lessons and video analysis sessions, is most high school pitchers are losing velocity because of poor pitching mechanics… they do not know how to use their bodies to generate force and thus throw with just their arms. This reduces velocity substantially and adds to the high risk of arm injuries.
Using the latest sports science training principles and tools such as video analysis (ignored by most coaches at the high school level) we have designed our products to show pitchers, parents, and coaches the most effective and simplest methods to recognize mechanical faults and to show pitchers how to make adjustments so they can maximize their velocity and reach their full pitching potential.
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.
