WHY THIS PROGRAM?

This is NOT a "Pitcher Workout", it is an off-season Throwing Program that benefits players that play any position on the field. The program is designed to increase your velocity from 3-5 mph through hard, smart, and intentional work. Baseball is better today than it has ever been which creates more competition for playing time and scholarships. So far you have stayed ahead of the pack, however, you are about to enter into a new group of ball players (those good enough/competing for scholarships) that is incredibly talented and incredibly motivated. Our program can help you.

This program has been researched, tested, and scientifically modified to provide serious players with a platform to increase velocity AND arm health. In addition, the program has shown to greatly improve throwing arm action, which leads to velocity and safer throwing.

EXPECTATIONS

If you are in search of a quick fix we suggest that you look elsewhere. This program demands a serious time commitment that must be kept by the player to maximize results. The program requires 3 days a week for approximately 1-1.5 hours each session.

While showing up 3 days a week is a big part of this, it is the intent in each repetition of each drill and the intent to throw harder that produces results.

Holidays and life events are considered and planned for in this program, however, participants are expected to plan ahead to make sure to stay on course with program timelines. Staying on schedule will be the responsibility of the player.

OUR RESEARCH

We have invested a great deal of resources to put this program together. Along the way we have compiled data, which includes an average velocity gain of 5.6 mph in 9 or fewer weeks. In addition to the velocity gains, when asked, our participants report that their arms feel better at the start of their spring high school season than it ever has in their life. That feedback is difficult to measure, but the value is enormous.

What would a 3 - 5 mph velocity gain do for you?  Make you more recruit-able? More competitive?  More successful?  All of the above? For some it will turn you into a recruit-able athlete. For some in will change who recruits you. For some it will put you in a small, but growing, fraternity of players that throw 90 mph.
