Velocity & Arm Care Program
The Velocity & Arm Care Program will be a key building block for your son to achieve the goals for 2020 and the remainder of 2019. This summer the participants in our velocity classes had a class average gain of 5.74 MPH and threw more 90 MPH throws than our facility has ever seen!
Our coaches have designed this program to work concurrently with our 2019 Warriors Summer game schedule to maximize our velocity gains while still being seen by college coaches at showcases.
Over the course of the program the athlete will gain an understanding of how the body works throughout the throwing motion and develop proper throwing mechanics in order promote arm strength and health that will give them a leg up on the upcoming season. This will be done using weighted balls, both overweight and underweight, as well as other drills used to improve the efficiency of movement in each athlete.
The strength and conditioning portion of the camp is designed by Coach Travis to improve each athletes functional strength and strengthen the athletes weaker areas to help prevent injuries. This summer Coach Travis introduced a foam rolling protocol that kept our players muscles loose and aided the recovery process, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. With our newly renovated weight room he will be able to properly train our athletes to help them reach velocities that they have never seen before!
