Fundamental Arm Development Program

The Arm Development Program (ADP) is Starters Sports Training’s core throwing program that is designed for BOTH pitchers and position players. A player's arm is their #1 tool. Quality throwing mechanics will help maintain a healthy arm which in turn allows arm strength to improve, a goal for every player. Ultimately this leads to a better baseball experience because you are playing and not recovering.

"Ground to release" is an approach to throwing used in all Brower Baseball development programs. It is a mechanical progression and incorporates a dynamic strengthening routine, stretching and drills specific to that session’s focus. Jim Brower created and successfully used this approach in his preparation for Spring Training throughout his 17-year professional playing career. Today as a professional pitching coach, he continues to find these principles relevant and beneficial in curriculum and methodology for both his amateur and professional players.

The ADP is structured to be throwing intensive and follows a graduated throwing progression. Players are allowed the time and the repetition needed to "learn their arms,” as well as establish quality throwing mechanics and habits. This lays the foundation for building arm strength, understanding the throwing process and preparing for an upcoming season.

Education is a core value and building block in all of Starters’ programs. Without this vital foundation, players are merely following a physical routine.  The Fundamental ADP program has been designed by Jim Brower, current assistant pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners, and will be run by Starters Sports Training's pitching coaches.
