August 20, 2016

National Pitching Association East Throwing Camp    West Chester, PA

Hosted by WC Dragons Baseball

Who:    NPA Regional Director Gardy O’Flynn and NPA East Affiliate Bill Roberts
Where:
Cost:  $150 (discount available for current Dragons players)
Registration/Questions: Email Bill Roberts (moc.l1484792439iamg@1484792439owtrk1484792439w1484792439) with players name, age, current team, email, and session preference
Clinic format
Players will be grouped into either the morning session, or afternoon session. When registering please indicate your availability/preference (morning/afternoon, or either). There will be a 1 hour overlap for participants in both sessions for a discussion and Q&A period.

2 sessions; 9 AM to 12 PM and 1 PM to 4 PM

Goals:
  1. Learn the NPA pitching model for health first, efficient biomechanics.
  2. Age appropriate, cross specific exercises for each athlete to increase arm speed and safe velocity.
  3. Personal Screening (STAT) to highlight strengths and weaknesses
  4. Learn your “Point in Time Velocity Capacity”

Every player will be given a full assessment of weak points and a tool kit to address areas of improvement. In addition, each player will receive a professional high speed video analysis of their pitching mechanics and recommended corrective actions.

The NPA process is a science based approach backed up by many years of motion analysis on over 600 top athletes.
  • The focus is on full body movement patterns to safely increase arm speed
  • Biomechanics for timing, kinematic sequencing and shoulder/arm movement
  • Functional strength for ground force production, torque and shoulder/arm strength
  • Body work for stability, mobility and flexibility
  • Joint integrity work for durability, then machine work, then free weight work
  • Aerobic/anaerobic work- daily
