Hitting Development Program

The Summer Hitting Program is a comprehensive 12-week protocol specifically designed for graduating seniors and college-level pitchers whose main priority is to improve their performance at the plate.  It’s heavily reliant on data analytics to assess and develop players.  It includes an extensive upfront assessment covering various hitting metrics, and the athlete’s strength and mobility profile.  The following is a summary of the many aspects of the summer program.

*** Note…

    • Summer hitting program schedule can be adjusted for those playing summer ball
    • Participation in the summer program requires pre-approval (and you must be at least 17 or older).


The objectives of the summer program are as follows:

    • Improve strength and power
    • Improve overall hitting mechanics
      • Kinematic Sequencing
      • Swing Path Metrics
      • Batted Ball Results
    • Increase bat speed and exit velocity
    • Improve overall adjustability at the plate
    • Improve overall physicality and become more athletic

Initial Evaluation

The initial evaluation is a thorough analysis and review of your overall physicality and pitching mechanics and it includes the following:

    • Initial movement screen
    • Body composition evaluation
    • Strength testing
    • Power production testing
      • Upper half – Proteus Motion power testing
      • Lower half – VALD Force Plate testing
    • Video review and analysis
    • Initial sit-down and review meeting to go over the summer plan

Training and Programming – Individualized

The strength training program is 100% designed around your specific needs based on the initial assessment, from mobility to strength training to power production.

    • Customized mobility routine based off the initial assessment
    • Strength & conditioning programming – Individualized
    • 12-week program (three 4-week blocks)
    • Programming based on the athletes’ individual needs (lean body mass, strength and/or power)
    • Velocity-based training with VBT sensors in the weight room
    • Up to 5x / week
    • Focus on being game-ready in September

Hitting Program

The program is 100% based off your specific needs as a hitter:

    • 12-week program (three 4-week blocks)
    • Hitting schedule – 3x / week
    • Swing path design
      • Rotational acceleration
      • Attack angle
      • Vertical bat angle
      • Bat speed
      • Power generation
    • Kinematic sequencing
      • K-vest Motion Capture
    • Batted ball results
    • Live at Bats

Exit Review

Upon completion of the program, you will receive what basically amounts to an exit review, going over where you started and how you ended the program.

    • Movement screen
    • Body composition evaluation
    • Strength testing
    • Power production testing
    • Upper half – Proteus Power testing
    • Lower half – Vald Force Mat testing
    • Video assessment
    • Exit review meeting
