Summer Throwing Program

The 12-week Summer Throwing Program is specifically designed for graduating seniors and college-level pitchers whose main priority is to improve their velocity.  There is a great deal that goes into a velocity program and it’s important that a comprehensive program incorporate all aspects of the process.
