Advanced Throwing/Pitching Training

Advanced Throwing/Pitching Training

Following our detailed throwing assessment program, we can work with you on reaching your baseball goals by improving your throwing mechanics. We will use a combination of slow motion video analysis and Rapsodo™ pitch analysis during your training as well as throwing drill training aids (including velocity Belt™ and King of the Hill ™ ) to maximise velocity and accuracy while reducing injury risk.

Advanced Throwing Program

In order to make significant changes with throwing mechanics, significant time and repetition is needed to make lasting changes via motor relearning with movement patterns. Therefore, we have a special program to help players improve their mechanics through drill training.

Our throwing assessment must be performed first in order to individualise your advanced throwing program below.

Each Throwing Session Includes:

  • 30mins training sessions at Grand Slam Hitting Centre with instruction from our physiotherapists and former professional baseball pitchers
  • Key exercises aimed at improving lower body mechanics, upper body mechanics and transferring lower body power with improving hip shoulder separation improvements.
  • Video analysis of key exercises/drills to ensure you are performing these correctly
  • Dependant on player, additional training will be included on becoming a complete pitcher with attributes as mentioned below
  • Some sessions maybe be available for Private Health Insurance Rebate*

For players looking to improve their ability as a pitcher, we will also provide assistance with the key attributes to becoming a successful pitcher such as:

  • Velocity

There is a tremendous amount of work and skill that is required to become an elite pitcher. This can easily get overwhelming to players, parents and coaches. We have the ability to help the player prioritise their time into what is important for the player to succeed and achieve their pitching goals.
