A fun co-ed four week instructional youth baseball pitching program to introduce the
fundamentals of pitching. This developmental program is designed for 6-12 year old participants, with a direct emphasis on learning the primary fundamentals that lay down the foundation for elite play in pitching for baseball. Our coach will teach players how to pitch the game at the next level each and every session. In this online tutorial, pitchers will develop fundamental skills learning how to grip the ball, the mechanics for delivery, how to pivot, how to stride and to follow through. Players will also learn proper arm care and warming up drills for practice and games. players will also learn abut the mental side of the game and how to be better prepared on the mound for game time!
This is a progressive program each week. Each time, the drills will build upon the previous lesson, becoming more advanced each session. For example, pitchers will work with different stations and drills during the program, and pitchers will work on different mechanics each time. The first couple of sessions are all about providing a good foundation for each week the player participates. We will start with the basics, and for some it may be repetitive, but we need to ensure everyone has a proper foundation for the rest of the program.
