NLP Baseball / Softball Training System

Both the game of Baseball and Softball require a high level of skill, and a high level of athleticism to perform at an elite level. One of the biggest mistakes I see young athletes and their families make is putting all of their efforts into skill development and showcase opportunities, while all but ignoring the development of speed, strength, and power.

Playing year round is not the answer! You are simply doing what everyone else is doing. More often than not, playing more just gets you the same results everyone else is getting.

Stop and ask yourself why scouts show up with stop watches, radar guns, and ball tracking technology. They are measuring exit velocity, throwing velocity, and how fast you run bases. These are key areas that can’t be significantly improved upon by just practicing the game.

Every athlete needs a dedicated off-season to improve the athletic qualities crucial to high level performance and to prepare the body to handle the demands of the game. After two decades as a sports performance coach, I have observed athletes that who dedicate themselves to complete development (skill & physical) consistently perform at higher levels than their peers, and have many more opportunities open to them in their career.

Key Qualities that contribute to Elite Level Play

Relative Body strength:

How strong an athlete is in relation to their body weight will lay the foundation for every other athletic quality a baseball or softball player will develop over their career.

Power:

An athletes ability to generate large amounts of force as quickly as possible will have a profound effect on every aspect of competition. This is a game changer for on field performance!

    Acceleration:

    The ability for an athlete to reach top speed in a very short short period of time.

    Mobility:

    Making sure you have adequate mobility in joints that are key to high level performance, will not only reduce the rate of injury, but it will also improve the bio-mechanics and technique of the skills that are unique to your sport.

    Rotational force:

    The ability to produce a high rate of velocity while batting or throwing is dependent on how much power you can generate in rotational patterns. This requires a system that builds this pattern in a systematic way with no power leaks from the ground up.

    Integrating all of these qualities into one seamless program where each specific component complements the other can be an overwhelming task. Fortunately we have done this step for you. We have tweaked, tracked, and made adjustments to this training system for over 20 years with our in-house athletes.
