Velocity Enhancement Program

Based on the concepts of nationally renowned programs from the Texas Baseball Ranch and Drivelines, we are excited to offer The Ball Yard Velocity Program. The program itself is too detailed to fully describe here, but here are the goals:

·         TO THROW HARDER

·         THROW FARTHER

·         THROW SAFER

·         DEVELOP THROWING SPECIFIC STRENGTH AND FITNESS

·         INCREASE DURABILITY

·         REDUCE RECOVERY TIME

 

Our primary goal is to increase velocity through a combination of speed and strength specific to the throwing motion. Participants across the country using the program over 12 weeks see an average increase of 6 mphMany Ball Yard participants have seen increases of 4-6 MPH in just 6 weeks doing 2 days a week.

Mechanical Enhancements

  • Postural Efficiency
  • Arm Action Efficiency
  • Scapular Load Efficiency
  • Separation/Torque Efficiency

Students will be expected to work hard and will be challenged at all times physically. Players will be tested at the start of the program, checked again in the middle, and once more at the conclusion.

The program is open to players age 10 and Up.

We HIGHLY encourage participants to attend 2 days per week for repetitions and development.
