For four or six weeks, 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 objective for all skills is to give each player a championship experience and provide useful information teaching proper mechanics, techniques and set up drills for the player to use at home for personal skill development.
This is not a lecture clinic. With a low player-coach ratio, each player gets individualized quality instruction in a small-group atmosphere for 60 or 90 minutes per week.
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.
The U.S. Baseball Academy staff is excited for the opportunity to help you player(s) improve their game and achieve your goals!
