The Pro Pitcher Academy was built by pro pitchers with the goal of providing a quality, comprehensive and professional program for young athletes who are committed to excelling at the next level. The academy realizes the importance of pitching mechanics and dedicates exceptional time to mechanical adjustments which includes frequent video analysis to ensure each pitcher has the best opportunity to command the entire strike zone. The inception of the academy also comes amidst the analytics age, so the academy leverages technology to not only track velocity, but other factors including spin rate and spin efficiency. Technology, coupled with conventional analysis will be used to make developmental decisions which benefit each specific player.
The incorporation of professional strength coaches to develop age appropriate resistance training and plyometric movements is arguably more valuable than our use of technology and a pro inspired curriculum. Our custom-built strength program is integrated into your academy training program. Besides working on the common glute, hamstring, and hip strength that some baseball specific trainers do, our academy staff will work to strengthen the pitching specific parts of the body like the thoracic spine and serratus anterior, while improving function of scapular rotation, ankle mobility, and hip extension.
The Pro Pitching Academy is not just a pitching program. The academy will improve your throwing strength, durability, and overall quality as a pitcher.
