Knowing where to start a player on their player development journey is the first step to the process.
Every player will go through the assessment process which allows us to take a deeper look into where each athlete is currently at in their training and exactly how we can begin to help them.
Pitching development is a year-round effort. There are different training programs that are based on different playing and training seasons throughout the year. Player development programs take into consideration the season of the sport, including summer, fall, winter and spring.
All players go through an assessment (varies by age) and a training plan is designed based on the information discovered during this process.
The process includes the following:
The movement screening will take a deeper look at his movement patterns as it pertains to performance.
Stability, mobility and functional patterns will be feature in the screen
Pitch AI can show dramatic improvements in pitching form as it shows the Kinematic Sequence and identifies stress points in the delivery
Video breakdown of pitching mechanics will be done as well.
PITCH BASELINE TESTING
Using and understanding pitching data to maximize performance and to develop a pitching program.
Using technology such as Rapsodo, will allow us to get a baseline on their pitching metrics, develop a program, and track progress throughout the program.
Pre-testing strength before the athlete begins the program will allow us to use the proper lifts, loads and volume within his program.
It allows us to track progress and make the appropriate changes to his program throughout his playing season. (**Age & Experience Base**)
Once the information from the assessment process is gathered, the athlete's individual program will be designed based on the information from the assessment. The program will focus on the key areas that were discovered in the assessment that will help the player get started and heading in the right direction.
The program will include the following (may vary based on age, needs and training season):
Based on the movement screening a corrective exercise program will be designed to address inefficient movement patterns and mobility issues throughout the kinetic chain.
Arm Care & Plyo Care program will be designed to improve strengthen arm patterns in the throwing motion that will improve mechanics
The program will focus on strength and power development as well as improving performance on the field.
