WHAT WE PROVIDE IS UNIQUE AND VALUABLE FOR THE PITCHER
These days, too many pitchers get injured thus limiting their opportunity to continue playing baseball. Many times the desire to win has superseded what is best for an athlete's development and future potential. This combined with general misinformation about what is good, better, or best for the development of pitchers has seriously impaired or injured pitchers beyond rehabilitation.
We've brought together the best advisory team to help us learn more about how and when to pitch. Through scientific research we are continually updating the basics of pitching, and passing on that knowledge to pitchers and coaches so that we can bring out the best in each and every player.
AT THE NPA MID ATLANTIC WE FOCUS ON THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF PITCHERS
To be a successful pitcher at any level of the game requires you to be in top physical condition, mentally tough, and emotionally calm. Balancing the physical and mental demands of this position is the hardest part of being a pitcher. That's why we focus heavily on:
The mechanics of pitching
Strength and conditioning techniques that enhance skills and reduce the incidence of injuries
Nutritional necessities so that athletes stay healthy
Mental and emotional practices that build confidence and reinforce players love of baseball
Developing strong relationships between players, parents and coaches so that they have the support they need
