Baseball/Softball Hitting Programs

Join us at ISA for a program focused on developing more consistent, powerful hitters.  With instruction from our ISA staff, this clinic will introduce the ideas and concepts used by professional and college baseball players. Learn the proper swing mechanics to maximize bat speed and exit velocity.  Instructors will teach the fundamentals and offer adjustments to each athlete’s individual swing.  

  • Proper Equipment: Offer advice on bat size and length. 
  • Tee Work: Break down the mechanics of a swing.  (Ex. Inside, Outside, Middle, Extension, Contact)
  • Hitting Mechanics: To study and improve upon the mechanics involved in hitting, which includes optimizing a player’s swing for either maximizing their bat speed or their time for plate coverage. 
  • At-Bat Preparation: Understanding dugout etiquette, preparing yourself as a in-the-hole hitter, on-deck hitter and at-bat batter
  • Plate Presence: Explaining body placement in box, learning when and how to take signs.
  • Situational Hitting: Learning the scenarios that are encountered in each at bat. 
  • Program is for both baseball and softball: Groups will be put together by baseball, softball, and age.
  • Ages 8U-18U

This program will cover all aspects of pitching. Below is more information on what to expect:

  • Arm Care:  Pre/Post throwing exercises for strengthening and injury prevention.
  • Throwing Mechanics:  Series of different throwing exercises to help ensure proper mechanics as well as ways to strengthen their arm.
  • Long Toss Progression:  Long toss program designed by ISA Staff that will take you through the proper steps and progression to ensure arm health as well build up arm strength. 
  • Mound Work:  Once the arm is built up and ready, everyone will throw off mound and get work with Jeremy. Emphasis will be on mechanics to optimize an efficient delivery translating to consistency and “easier” velocity.
  • Pitch Development:  Establishing fastball command and the development of a change up. Introduction of a third pitch (depending on athletes age), will be a focus as well.
  • Pitch Sequencing:  Help pitchers understand the mental side of pitching. (What pitches should be thrown in what counts) Challenge the athletes to up their baseball IQ.
  • Pitchers Fielding Practice:  Teaching proper ways to field position, cover bases, and pick off to bases.  Ensuring pitchers are properly equipped to handle all situations.
  • Controlling Baserunners:  Simplify controlling baserunners and the run game. Cover how to properly hold runners to prevent base stealing.

Softball Pitching Program

Covered in the program will be a proper warm up routine and pitching form with corrections to reduce the risk of injury, they will also increase the pitcher’s softball IQ and explain the importance of the battery communication. Also covered, but not limited to:

  • Arm Care:  Pre/post pitching exercises for strengthening and injury prevention. 
  • Basic Pitching Mechanics:  Series of different throwing exercises to help ensure proper mechanics as well as strengthening their arm. 
  • Pitch Development:  Establishing command and development of pitches, primarily a speed and off-speed pitch. 
  • Speed vs. Movement:  Discuss the age-old question of what should come first.  
  • Pitch Selection:  Help pitchers understand the mental side of pitching — what pitches to throw and when. Challenge the athletes to up their softball IQ. 
  • Hitter Analysis:  Every batter tells a story from their stance to their practice swing, we want pitchers/catchers to be able to read it and determine what pitches to throw. 
  • Pitchers Fielding Practice:  Teaching proper ways to field position, along with base coverages or backups.
