Foundations of Pitching
The online portion of the course contains 32 videos teaching our fundamentals of training and programming pitchers. Learn the framework of the pitching delivery, the basics of our drill work (and easy modifications based on assessment data), and year-round programming templates with adjustments. Our courses are the result of continually tested and retested methodology.
Coaches are constantly needing to problem solve with their players in order to improve their performance. With recent changes in the game, along with improvements in technology, player development has become a large focus. Not only are coaches looking for players to develop, but players are actively looking for the best coaches to help them do so.
In today’s day and age, there is more information than ever—more drills and different types of video breakdowns and preferred mechanics, on top of changes in scouting driven by technological advances. Coaches today don’t need more drills—they need to know when and how to apply them.
This course will teach you the basics of the system that Driveline Baseball uses to train pitchers. Not only do we cover dos and don’ts of all of our drills and programming, but we also show you how to think about mechanics and making mechanical changes. We teach you how to problem solve and think like a Driveline trainer, using the same course that we use internally.
The online portion of the course can be taken at your own pace, but coaches will need to attend the live sessions on the dates that they have signed up for.
Certifications are good for a year after completing the live event. Coaches will be able to sign up for the live event, hosted online, after passing the 32 video online section. No coach is considered certified until they have completed the final quiz after the live event.
Each video is followed by a short quiz. Coaches must score 80% or higher to move on to the next section.
There will be a yearly ‘update’ in order to maintain your certification, at the cost of $59.
Upon completion of the course, coaches will be considered certified. We do not give permission to individuals or programs to represent themselves as “Driveline”, but instructors may represent themselves as “Driveline-certified” or a variant that is appropriate.
Coaches who pass will not be listed as certified on Driveline’s website, but we may confirm completion upon request.
