Velocity Program

Monthly Clinics

Keep your skills sharp with our monthly clinics. Though not always easy, baseball & softball are simple games. The key to experiencing success is to be good at the simple things, and you can never work on them enough. In these clinics, the main aspects of playing and the fundamentals of each will be covered, giving baseball & softball players the opportunity to consistently hone their skills throughout the fall and winter.


Velocity Program  

The velocity program is back! An advanced clinic, there will be a strict focus on improving strength, flexibility, and stamina in order to increase throwing velocity. Players will prepare themselves to best handle the stress & demand placed on their arms over the course of a season. This program is for baseball players 13 years of age and older.
