Pitching Skills Classes

About Pitching Skills Classes

This program is built for the ongoing progression of pitchers. Multiple pitching instructors from Elevate will work with 10-16 athletes in small groups, teaching them what they need in the immediate, as well as for their future selves.

The challenge: Every pitcher is unique, and they bring something different to Elevate instructors each day; their current skill level, emotional state, strength, lever length, mobility/stability, brain processing power, vision, level of play, what they’ve been taught, what they feel versus what is real.

Why join Elevate’s Pitching Skills Classes?

Elevate has a track record of running successful, comprehensive pitching programs that lead to improvements across the board; in velocity, arm health, functional strength, number and quality of pitches, “pitchability,” and mentality.

Who is instructing?

Elevate has a staff of pitching instructors that have D1 and professional pitching experience and have turned into effective teachers of their craft.

What is expected of the pitchers?

Embrace change, no matter how uncomfortable the process will be at times. There is no other way to grow.

  • Start and keep a pitching journal to track sessions, practices, games
  • Communicate by asking questions of instructors and seeking feedback
  • Pursuing new information by questioning your beliefs
  • Buy in to new information, methods, and techniques taught by instructors
  • Learn to be comfortable feeling uncomfortable

What will be learned?

Every day will be chocked full of lessons to improve. Learning to become more self-aware and how to make your own adjustments is priority #1. Becoming a good teammate or throwing partner is #2. The framework of the content is seen below.

  • Arm Action – for faster, more efficient, healthier movements
  • Sequential Motion – to generate power from the ground up
  • Strength & Stability – for separation, durability, and velocity
  • Pitch Plans & Approaches – to understand and use your strengths against the hitter’s tendencies
  • Pitch Grips – for variations that add and subtract velocity to improve deception
  • Mentality – to focus on goals, intent, composure
  • Recovery & Health – to create and implement arm and body care routines that speed up recovery and build strength throughout the season

What tools will be used in classes?

The use of the following tools will be based on the location and the needs of the specific day’s curriculum.
