Here is just some of what is offered during our Catching Instruction:
The Three Stances. Catchers must be fully in command with each of the three stances: Signal-Giving, Receiving, and Blocking/Throwing.
Footwork:Footwork is crucial for catchers. The angles you create with your feet will dictate where your throws go.
Throwing:We work outdoors as much as possible for throwing on our state-of-the-art Fieldturf field. This allows players to work on form-throwing, long toss and throws from the actual distance at which they play.
Drills: You will work on several drills designed to reinforce the stances and skills, including tennis ball soft toss, framing, three-ball drill, reaction drills, shadow-off voice and jugs machine/live reps.
Stretching and Flexibility: Proper stretching and flexibility are especially crucial for catchers. You will learn catcher-specific stretching exercises and routines that will increase your comfort and agility while reducing your chances of injury.
Mental Toughness:Catcher is physically the toughest position to play and requires mental toughness as well. Our experienced instructors will help you develop the necessary mind-set to be a successful catcher.
