**The Youngblood PITCHING is for athletes who have tried pitching before but are still a novice.  The curriculum is geared towards athletes who play rec softball, or B/C level travel. The focus will be on mechanics, not moving pitches!” 
 The Goal: train the skill of pitching using an athletic movement foundation. This is the necessary first step to any required skill acquisition for any sport or specialty skill they choose.

The Design: This 6 week program will provide a fun-fast paced environment for your young athlete all while training the foundational athletic principles and movements that all High Level Pitchers display. This program is a movement-based curriculum with specialty softball skills as the secondary focus.

  • General movements that will be trained: gross motor movements and coordination, fine motor movement and coordination, force production and force acceptance, speed skills, power and strength skills, spatial awareness and team cooperation.
  • Specific/Secondary skills that will be trained: PITCHING ONLY
