Get your kids on the right path with correct mechanics and information that will keep them healthy as they grow and mature through their baseball lifetime. These days, too many pitchers get injured thus limiting their opportunity to continue playing. Many times the desire to win has superseded what is best for an athlete’s development and future potential. This combined with general misinformation about what is good, better, or best for the development of pitchers has seriously impaired or injured pitchers beyond rehabilitation. We’ve brought together the best advisory team to help us learn more about how and when to pitch. Through scientific research we are continually updating the basics of pitching, and passing on that knowledge to pitchers, coaches and parents so that we can bring out the best in each and every player.  Gardy O’Flynn and Tom Landry have over a decade of experience with Tom House and the National Pitching Association.  They are locally endorsed by the medical community, specifically Boston Children’s Hospital and Sports Medicine North.  For details and to register, please view our Events Calendar ➔
