Our Six Week Program

0 Comments 📁 Featured 🕔22.September 2015
Our Six Week Program

For six weeks, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including batting cages, each designed to teach a different piece of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and unique drills used by the nation’s top high school and college programs and developed by the U.S. Baseball Academy advisory staff. The program is designed to improve pitch and strike-zone recognition, timing, balance, quickness, power, situational hitting, bunting and other aspects. Young hitters build an invaluable foundation and a thorough understanding of the swing, while experienced players cover advanced topics such as hitting different pitches to different fields, hitting curveballs and changeups, and more.

In our six-week pitching program, pitchers work under the supervision of coaches who can help with all aspects of pitching, from fundamentals and mechanics to more advanced concepts. Drills and repetition will improve a pitcher’s speed and control and allow him to begin the year in mid-season form. Please note that each pitcher must bring his own catcher (parent, sibling, friend), allowing for maximum throwing time and for coaches to work hands-on with each pitcher.

Our six-week fielding and baserunning program will improve the skills of infielders and outfielders of any age. Fielding drills and instruction cover areas such as stance, positioning, footwork, anticipation and reaction, ground balls and fly balls, backhands, double plays, bunt coverage, cutoff-relays, rundowns, bag coverage, communication, and game situations and more. Baserunning instruction includes improving quickness and speed with proper running technique, getting out of the box, leadoffs, stealing, reading the pitcher, rounding bases, sliding, and game situations.

Our six-week catcher’s camp (grades 4-12) covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Catchers must bring a mask, shin guards and chest protector.

Parents are welcome to observe, and many youth coaches leave with a valuable list of drills they can incorporate into their own practices. The timing of the program is perfect for preparing young players for the season ahead.

So, forget about the weather. What better way to get a jump on the upcoming season than a six-week Spring Training experience, featuring instruction from some of the area’s best coaches in a fantastic indoor facility? Many sessions sell out months before they begin, so don’t delay.
