Customized Training Programs for Young Athletes
Our baseball and softball youth development programs focus on learning:
- Hitting –The Kinetic Performance Institute coaches are committed to helping young athletes learn to hit correctly. We prioritize bat speed, attack angle, and hitting the ball as hard and far as possible. All KPI hitters wear and are continually assessed with Blast Baseball Bat Sensors, and we use Hittrax and Trackman to track batted ball metrics. Our training team constantly validates and adjusts the hitting programming.
- Pitching –Our pitching staff has created a unique system of youth pitching development that teaches the skills that high-level pitchers will need and how to implement arm care protocols. We use our radar-based technologies to provide feedback and to monitor the progress of all the youth pitchers.
- Strength –Every time an athlete walks into our facility, they’ll work on strength and movement. We use a combination of strength, agility, speed, and core workouts to increase athleticism. Our coaches focus on strength training to prepare the athletes for an individualized approach as they advance through the KPI system.
- Arm Care– Young athletes must prioritize arm care when pitching because throwing a baseball, and the repetitive overhand motion it requires is not a natural movement for the arm, shoulder, and associated muscles and tendons. We take steps to help athletes incorporate routines that will help prepare their bodies for the stress of throwing a baseball repeatedly. Arm care for young baseball players helps minimize specific injuries that keep them off the field.
