  • We test 3 things for power. A vertical jump A seated med ball chest pass and sit up med ball throw
  • So many times in my career I would try and get kids to do a certain movements and I’d get frustrated because they couldn’t figure it out. Now I’ve come to the realization that everyone moves differently.
  • Rotational strength and velocity is one of the most important things there is in throwing and hitting.
  • If you aren’t strong and you dont have the intent to throw/swing hard, not alot else matters because those are the two big foundations.
  • I love using a broomstick or PVC so the kids can actually focus on moving better rather than trying to hit all the time.
  • I think external cues within a team setting would be the way to go. Tell them to hit oppo home runs
