VELOCITY CAPACITY (STAT) CLINIC
At the Velocity Capacity (STAT) Clinics, with JA Pitching, certified National Pitching Association coach, 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.
From the data we collect, we can identify exactly an athlete’s current and potential velocity capacity. If an athlete is not currently reaching his/her capacity, we can identify and isolate which weak link is contributing to that failure. This testing specifically addresses the functional strength and speed threshold component of velocity capacity.
Test results will provide you with your current safe throwing velocity (the velocity that you can safely throw a 5oz ball from a mound in game conditions following ASMI pitch limits) and your projected mound velocity potential with perfect mechanics and ability to pass the STAT Test, as well as an in-depth summary of any deficiencies or imbalances.
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.
All 30 MLB teams test shoulder strength and range of motion because it is directly related to velocity, accuracy, stamina, and risk of injury.
In addition to the STAT Test and Arm Health Assessment, athletes will have their pitching mechanics recorded and assessed using slow motion camera applications.
The goal of the clinic is for the athlete to come away with a clear understanding of their mechanical inefficiencies and functional strength deficiencies so that an athlete can hyper-focus on those strength and conditioning exercises and pitching drills needed to throw harder easier and healthier.
Cost Per Athlete: $200 (Space is Limited)
Clinic will go from 9am - 12pm. Within a week after the clinic, you will receive a PDF on the full results of your assessment along with mechanics analysis, which the option to schedule a 30-minute Zoom call to review the assessment.
**Space is limited, on a first-come, first served basis

MORE ABOUT NPA STAT TESTING
S.T.A.T. represents the following:
Screening for Weak Links
Testing for Point in Time Capacity
Accessing for Efficiency of Movement, Strength, and Flexibility
Training for Efficient Movement, Muscle Balance, Velocity, and Neuro-Muscular Speed Thresholds
This is a proprietary screening test created by Tom House Sports that is designed to thoroughly screen where your deficiencies in regards to your ability to generate velocity, so that an athlete can hyper-focus on those strength and conditioning exercises and pitching drills needed to throw harder easier and healthier.
What we are looking for is a balance between acceleration muscles (front side of body) and the deceleration muscles (back side of body). Why is that important? The body cannot accelerate any more than it is capable of decelerating, so if they are not kept in balance, a rotational athlete will not achieve their highest velocity capabilities. They are also much more susceptible to muscle fatigue, chronic soreness, and other rotational deficiencies.
