The Starters High Performance (HP) Hitting Program is a 5 month program for committed players.  The HP Hitting Program is a comprehensive program utilizing today's cutting-edge technology, individual skill development, and personal development. 

The HP Hitting Program will utilize technologies such as the Hit Trax, Rapsodo, Blast Motion, Game Sense,  Video Breakdown, and High Speed Video Analysis to provide athletes with quantifiable feedback to help better individualize each hitters focus on a session by session basis.  We will work with players to help them understand their body movements and ways to better control them while being an athlete. Although data is great, the sustainability comes from teaching each player to find the right position to put themselves in to allow their bio-metric sequencing to be completed at the highest level of efficiency.  The HP Hitting Program will run through five different phases:

  1. Introductory Phase: Begin learning process of development with a biomechanics understanding of the baseball swing and the subsequent data that will be tracked throughout the duration of the program. 
  2. Circuit Phase: Increase physicality and proprioceptive capabilities through highly stimulating circuit training incorporating weighted bats and plyo balls.
  3. Internal Phase: Assess information learned from the circuit phase and advance the learning process through swing pattern development and data reassessment.
  4. External Phase: Switch focus from internal thought processing to external execution through variability training and competition in preparation for live game performance, in addition to implementing bat speed training to aid in swing development during the transition process. 
  5. Live Phase: Prepare for the season with a full commitment to external training through live at bats and machine training.
