Much More Than Just A Lesson.

Integrated Baseball Development for Youth Athletes

For Players 9U-14U

Youth baseball players need 4 things:

  • Learn fundamental movements
  • Learn good habits
  • Skills that scale
  • To have fun

Driveline Baseball’s Long-Term Skills Camp for Fall 2019 / Winter 2020 achieves all 3 in a world-class training environment used by multiple MLB teams and thousands of collegiate and professional baseball players.

 

What they don’t need is an endless series of pitching or hitting lessons. Driveline Baseball’s Long-Term Skills Camp is designed to help players build skills that scale as they grow older in the game, both on the diamond and off it.

What Does Youth Training At Driveline Look Like?

Fundamental Movements

Being a good baseball player means being a good athlete. For young players, learning to hit and throw has a lot more to do with learning how to become a better athlete than it does executing a series of precise “mechanics”.

 

To move well, physical strength is often overlooked. Many youth coaches seek to apply a “mechanics” fix to a problem of coordination and strength.

 

Our player development system relies on integrated strength and skill instruction. Both are important from a young age.

Good Habits

Warm-up to throw. Spend time recovering after you train or play. Have an approach at the plate, every time.

 

Every day kids hear these pieces of advice. And every day, they are ignored or half-heartedly executed.

 

Training at Driveline, the impact that your warm-up and recovery have on your performance is evident.

 

Everything is tracked. You cannot hide from yourself. And young players can learn responsibility.

Have Fun

We aren’t going to skimp on the fun. A young player with Major League dreams still has to like the game when he is 17 years old.

 

The training is designed to be fun and engaging.

 

We don’t overcue athletes–rather they learn how to move well through a series of challenges and drills specifically designed to help them intuit the flaws in their movements.

Camp Features:

  • Arm Care Routine: consistent warm-up and recovery program, along with drills to push movement quality, helping young players develop efficient and fatigue-resistant arms.
  • Hitting Program: make consistent hard contact and develop a hitting approach that works for each hitter, with skills that scale as they grow in the game.
  • Strength & Mobility: build a solid foundation to express athleticism over the long term – both on a baseball field and off of it.

Program Details:

  • Biomechanic Assessment: we use our 3D motion capture lab with young players to find areas of mechanical or efficiency improvements in their throwing, train to improve those areas, then re-test to check our progress.
  • HitTrax Hitting: players see exactly how hard, and how far, they’re hitting the ball – without having to be on a field.
  • Bat Speed Sensors: track player’s bat speed and then develop it. Swinging the bat fast matters. So let’s do more of that.

Camp Details:

  • When: Sessions start on October 2nd:
    • 1st training cycle – October through December
    • 2nd training cycle – January through February
  • What Time: Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30PM and Sundays from 1:00 to 3:00PM
