NEW CLIENTS: Initial Screen Options: Standard Screen, P.I.T.V.C Screen or R.T.T Screen
Standard Initial Screen: Initial Screen Report: 50 minute Initial Eval $120 includes video includes high speed video mechanics analysis, shoulder screen, two knee velocity testing and joint integrity workouts.
We will use a high speed camera, to provide an accurate slow motion analysis of the athlete. High speed cameras allow us to identify and measure the timing of an athlete’s kinematic sequence than can’t be seen by the human eye. The analysis will clearly define between player signatures and biomechanical variables. Knowing the difference is the key! Player signatures are inherent and specific to an athlete. Biomechanics are the laws of physics applied to the human body, so they are constant and scientifically defendable for all rotational athlete movements. Optimizing the efficiency of the key biomechanical variables provides optimal health and performance. We may will also use diamond kinetics baseball to track efficiency in spin rate/direction and velocity. Pitchers must fill out PLAYER HISTORY FORM and then schedule time HERE
Point in Time Velocity Capacity Testing
Capacity Testing: $250Our point in time velocity capacity evaluation allows National Pitching coaches to analyze an athlete’s current and potential pitching velocity capacity. Once we learn this information, we determine whether an athlete is reaching their capacity and address weak links that are preventing them from reaching their full potential.
Personalized velocity and mechanics training
All pitchers want to throw correctly and hard. But few understand how to get there, and how to do it safely. That’s where Gardy can help you, with the most advanced pitching research and coaching science in the world!
Would you like to know how hard you are supposed to be able to safely throw today (based on your current mechanical efficiency, functional strength, and other factors)? In other words, what is your current safe speed limit? With a specialized series of NPA-researched and validated tests, screens, and assessments we can tell you!
We’ll compare your current safe speed limit with how hard you are actually throwing today. Most pitchers are throwing with less velocity than they are capable of. Why is that?
Now, here’s the best part…
We can tell you why! We can tell you exactly what is keeping you from your safe velocity capacity, and we can give you a unique and personalized velocity training prescription to help you make up the difference! You will be throwing harder, better, and safer! And then you can build from there!
Following your assessment and prescription, you’re primed to immerse yourself in the NPA’s comprehensive training program with focus on bio-mechanics, functional strength, nutrition/recovery/sleep, and mental/emotional management – the complete package.

R.T.T. Return to Throwing Screen & Program
R.T.T. Screen & Program: $250
Specifically, for athletes coming off injury or need a throwing mechanics rewiring we offer a personalized R.T.T. program based on their initial evaluation. Gardy works directly with the Chief of Orthopedics at Sports Medicine North and is a throwing specialist for the 3D Lab @ Micheli Center (Boston Children’s Hospital).
Athletes will possibly receive a Vector Analysis in this screen: Vector management from an athlete’s motion analysis helps us measure and evaluate how a player transfers energy using weight and direction. Poor energy vectors can put undue stress on the body and shoulder joint, which can lead to injury and low performance. With National Pitching’s proprietary vector analysis, we find inefficiencies so we can address them in training. Pitchers must fill out PLAYER HISTORY and can schedule HERE.
Most of our lessons and clinics are held in Ipswich, MA and in Salem, MA at the Grind Factory. Gardy O’Flynn will travel to do clinics in your area. For bigger events such as our NPA STAT Pitching Clinics and NPA Super Camps – are often led by NPA Founder Tom House – we use other facilities so that we can accommodate the larger number of participants. ;
We hold pitching clinics regularly on Thursday and Sundays at Ipswich High School and Tuesday and Saturdays at the Grind Factory in Salem, MA. We also offer individual lessons there, too. Please check our Events schedule for more information and to sign up. If you are from another area, NPA East has coaches from Ontario to Pennsylvania that are trained to help you perform better.
Our specialty is pitching, but we have ability to train all rotational athletes including QB’s! Gardy O’Flynn is the East Area Director of the National Pitching Association (NPA), which means he use the latest, data-backed and science-based research to help you improve your pitching or QB skills, avoid injuries and sharpen your mental game. NPA Founder Tom House, who has worked with some of the best MLB pitchers including Hall of Famers (Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson) and other elite rotational athletes including several NFL QB’s, occasionally leads these clinics.
