Standards of Instruction Affirmation

As an affirmation of my commitment to “High Performance Pitching” excellence, I will encourage and instruct in efficient and safe pitching mechanics. Below is a list of “foundational building blocks” that will be a staple of my instructional methods:

 Posture and Core Stability
 Internal Rotation and Pronation
 Brush Trigger and Arm Stabilization
 Arm Whip
 Reciprocal Arms Timing and Balance
 Hand Orientation 
 Ball Release Timing
 Drive Leg Engagement & Unforced Opening
 Backward Chaining/Progression Training
 Positive Coaching

 Hello Elbow/Forced Follow Through
 Wrist Flips
 Locked Out/Straight Arm/”Long Arm Circle”
 Exaggerated Open/Close
 Glove Arm Extremes
 Palm down/on top of the ball or towards 2nd
 Palm out at 12 o’clock
 Muscling forward action
 To Open/To Closed at release
 Arm Circle not parallel with PL
 Ninja Move (no brush trigger)
 Extreme Spiraling/Gyro pitches
 Forced Figure 4/Flamingo Toe Drag
 Stride foot landing angle extremes
