Skills Assessments


Objective Measurement is an important part of my instruction. Measuring not only provides valuable feedback on player development, but also lets players and families see where they stand compared to their peers. Once a baseline is established, players will naturally compete, first against their peers, but eventually against themselves. In the process they learn critical skills that will help them not only in their sports career but long after as well.

As a professional trainer, I believe training should be all about player development. In short – helping athletes come as close to their full potential as possible. Do you know what your MAX is? Unless you test and train you will never really know.

Once you’ve been assessed you’ll be able to view the video clip of your swing or throw and your other measurements in your online locker. You will also be able to view the Leader boards to see how you stack up against your peers in the county, state and country. If you qualify, you will be placed on the Leader board.

OBJECTIVE MEASUREMENT DESCRIPTIONS


Tee Exit Speed – The assessment will consist of 10 swings off of a tee with the player’s own bat. Each swing will be videotaped and the exit speed will be captured with the Ball Coach or Stalker Pro-II radar gun. The highest exit speed recorded will be saved and sent to the player's profile page for viewing and archiving.

Positional Arm Speed – The assessment will consist of 10 throws from your designated position (catcher will start from a squat, for example). Each throw will be videotaped and the velocity will be captured with the Ball Coach or Stalker Pro-II radar gun. The highest velocity throw recorded will be saved and sent to the player's profile page for viewing and archiving.

Fastball Pitching Speed – The assessment will consist of 10 pitches. Each pitch will be videotaped and the velocity will be captured with the Ball Coach or Stalker Pro-II radar gun. The highest velocity pitch recorded will be saved and sent to the player's profile page for viewing and archiving.
