High School After School Program

Program Fall 2023-Winter 2024

High School Registration

Program Overview on Hitting

Our High School Development Program is a long term training group that we generally start in November and continues until players are ready for their next season – typically late March. These camps are typically 3 nights a week and – due to the duration of training – allow us to help a player improve in all phases of the game, in addition to age appropriate strength and movement.

With our superior instructors/coaching and aptitude to taking the average player and developing them into a player others aspire to be is what we do best!

With our many "toys" we implement to aid in the process of the athletes development, we are able to modify a program designed for each players maximum success.

What it is All About

You bring the work ethic. We will give you a plan and enviroment to get the most from your effort. It all starts with our full assessment.

We find what you do well and the areas you need to improve on and build a profile of the player you are now.

Next, we will build a plan so you can get the most out of your training days.

Blast Motion

Blast Motion is a sensor that attaches over the handle of the bat and allows for real time feedback, analyzes an individual player's hitting trends, attack angle, bat speed, launch angle, exit velo, distance & visualizes your ball flight through interactive spray charts.

Tracking these measurables helps the player to understand the relationship between cause and effect for a good or bad swing.

From there, our team of instructors will begin on working on the athletes sequencing. With the use of PVC Pipe, Medicine Ball drill work that will promote proper swing mechanics such as posture, bat speed, rotation, on plane & connection that creates rotational power.


Rapsodo is a sports analytic company that uses computer vision and advanced radar to help all athletes maximize there performance. Batted ball metrics is the key to understanding where the cause of swing deficiencies are for each athlete-and track progress over time.

Challenging Days/Competition

Our goal for the hitting portion of the program is to have the athlete translate his swing into game like at bats. We bring in players of all ages within our program and players that are involved in our throwing program to challenge the hitters in a competitive setting.

Our advanced pitching machines are used as well to work on inside & outside fastballs, curveballs of different shape ( right & left side), over velocity, exact pitch locations. These challenging at bats will be more difficult than the athlete will face 99% of the time.
