Our Spring Training Program

Our Spring Training Program

In our hitting program, hitters rotate through a series of supervised stations, including batting cages, each designed to teach a different component of hitting. Players enjoy participating in hitting games and competition drills used by the nation’s top high school and college programs and developed by the U.S. Baseball Academy advisory staff. The program is designed to improve on an aggressive approach at the plate, proper grip, stance/set up, routine, balance, stride/load, timing, swing path, contact points, extension and finish. Young hitters build an invaluable foundation and a thorough understanding of the swing, while experienced players cover more advanced topics such as how to obtain bat speed, hitting to all fields, launch angle, pitch recognition, off-speed pitches, situational hitting, bunting and mental side of hitting. Hitters will need to bring their own bat.

Our pitching program is designed to emphasize proper pitching mechanics and a solid throwing program to better each individual skill set. Players will go thru a series of drills breaking down the mechanics (windup/stretch), PFP (pitchers fielding practice), proper throwing progression, core /shoulder work, pick-offs, location catch, breaking ball and mental approach. Please note that each pitcher must bring his own catcher (parent, sibling, friend), allowing for maximum throwing time and for coaches to work hands-on with each pitcher

Our fielding and baserunning program will improve the skills of infielders and outfielders of any age. Fielding drills and instruction cover areas such as stance, positioning, footwork, anticipation and reaction, ground balls and fly balls, backhands, double plays, bunt coverage, cutoff-relays, rundowns, bag coverage, communication, and game situations and more. Baserunning instruction includes improving quickness and speed with proper running technique, getting out of the box, leadoffs, stealing, reading the pitcher, rounding bases, sliding, and game situations.

Our catcher’s camp (grades 3-12) covers all aspects of being behind the plate. Players will get instruction on stance, signs, receiving, framing, blocking, throwing, fielding bunts, tags and the mental aspects of dealing with pitchers. Catchers must bring a mask, shin guards and chest protector.

Parents are welcome to observe, and many youth coaches leave with a valuable list of drills they can incorporate into their own practices. The timing of the program is perfect for preparing young players for the season ahead.

So, forget about the weather. What better way to get a jump on the upcoming season than a six-week Spring Training experience, featuring instruction from coaches right from your area? Many sessions sell out months before they begin, so don’t delay.
