Our Elite Baseball Training program works well for youth athletes under the age of 13.
Experience with Youth Athletes
The owners of Driveline Baseball – Kyle Boddy and Jacob Staff – coached together at the Little League level from ages 9-14 for 5+ years. Kyle had experience with coaching Northeast Seattle Little League (NESLL) Juniors teams to the top four of the regional playoffs and reinvigorating the love of baseball in youth athletes who have gone on to play at the college level. Jake got his start with NESLL and also coaches 9-10 year olds in the Seattle Central Little League organization.
Outstanding Attention to the Foundation of Mechanics
Driveline Baseball offers the only Biomechanical Video Analysis laboratory in the Pacific Northwest. We have multiple high-speed cameras that we use for in-depth analysis of both hitters and pitchers to capture your swing and throw at over 200 frames per second. All other facilities have cameras that record your mechanics more than six times slower.
Needless to say, this is a huge competitive advantage for athletes who train here. Our instructors have reviewed all the relevant published research on hitting and pitching mechanics across various sports science and kinesiology-based journals.
Youth pitchers who train at Driveline Baseball will be in the hands of coaches who fully understand the answers to complex questions like:
- Is it safe for my 12 year old to throw curve balls?
- How many pitches should my son throw per game before being taken out?
- Does it matter how many pitches per inning he throws?
- What’s the best way to warm up a youth pitcher’s arm without over-stressing it?
- What are the proper pitching mechanics for a youth pitcher?
Note: For clients under the age of 13, we typically only accept private lessons, as the semi-private training group is better suited to HS/College/Pro athletes. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis should the youth player express interest in the Elite Baseball Training Program.
