MAX VELO SOFTBALL HITTING & THROWING 1-DAY CLINICS

At the Max Velo Softball Hitting & Throwing Clinics, athletes will receive the Tom House Sports STAT Test and ArmCare.Com arm strength assessment to test for functional strength weaknesses. Athletes will also receive instruction and drills on proper hitting mechanics to help them hit more consistently and for more power, and throwing mechanics to help the athletes throw (overhand) harder, easier and healthier.

The Clinic is in collaboration with certified Tom House Sports coach JA Pitching & Throwing & BG Catching & Hitting, an experienced college, high school and travel softball coach that has trained over 40 college commits and over 60 nationally ranked travel softball players.

The clinic is highlighted by:

  • Athletes will be given the Tom House Sports Proprietary STAT screening that will assess athlete’s deficiencies in regard to their ability to generate throwing velocity. Testing will include a variety of arm speed tests, torso speed tests, and leg balance & strength testing.

  • The athlete will also be given the ArmCare Arm Health Assessment to test their overall shoulder and arm strength and range of motion to test for weaknesses, imbalances and asymmetries.

  • Instruction/drills on proper throwing and hitting mechanics with options to add on a detailed throwing and/or hitting mechanics analysis with customized drills to help address any throwing or hitting mechanical inefficiencies.
