Summer Pitcher Development Program (ages 13-17 year olds)

The 12-week Summer Pitcher Development Program (ages 13 – 17 year olds) is specifically designed for younger athletes who are playing travel baseball during the summer months (the program can be adjusted for those NOT playing summer ball and are interested in a more extensive program).

As player development takes more center stage in the world of youth baseball, this summer we are offering a program for middle school and high school athletes to remain at the top of their game.

*** You can begin in June or July and the program cost and sessions will be pro-rated.

Objectives

The objectives of the summer program are as follows:

    • Keep you at the highest performance level during the summer travel baseball season
    • Maintain / improve overall mobility, strength and power
    • Improve overall athleticism
    • Maintain / increase velocity ceiling
    • Maintain / improve overall command
    • Improve pitch movement through pitch design work, as appropriate
    • Maintain overall endurance and resilience in your arm
