Mechanics, Strength & Velocity Clinic
The Mechanics, Strength & Velocity Program will be back again this year for ages 14+ beginning November 15. This tiered program is geared toward building proper, stable mechanics as well as increasing arm strength. This is not only for pitchers, but for position players & catchers as well. In the throwing portion of the program, position-specific mechanics will be applied as well as player-specific circuit training. The circuit training portion will target muscles that will increase strength to better stabilize the throwing arm and increase not only arm strength but also strengthen the muscle groups that support the arm & shoulder. This program will be directed by Jim and is individually created based on the player’s position, strength & age. The players meet for 1.5 hours twice a week from November-March. All progress is tracked using the Rapsodo system.
