Camp Description

 

This dynamic throwing pre-season program was developed for the premier and aspiring premier player.

It is a program for those serious about competing at the next level. Our coaches/trainers are here to care for, build, develop and fine-tune your technical skills and overall throwing/pitching performance.

Instruction will focus on the organization, connection, and speed of body movements that occur in a healthy and efficient throwing delivery. Throwing components such as intent, sync, momentum, tempo, rhythm, posture, efficiency, arm interaction, pelvic loading, and scapular movements will be introduced. Velocity gains, arm strength, endurance, improved mechanics and injury prevention are our goals for players participating. It is not usually the pitcher's large muscles that break down. Injury usually occurs in the smaller muscles and connective tissue of the shoulder; therefore, our throwing program is considered to be a more functional training for prevention and progress towards meeting these goals.
