The Baseball Zone is excited to announce the start of a new baseball specific strength, speed, and agility program led by coach Jim Fox. The program will begin the week of November 12th.
This is a very important step for us as we look to further our ability to develop the best possible baseball player. Aside from skill training, the best way to enhance performance is to increase strength and improve speed and agility. The best players are strong, quick, and can move well on the baseball diamond.
Offensive Benefits - As a hitter, gaining strength will improve bat speed, which will translate into higher exit velocities. Higher exit velocities equate into balls getting out of the infield faster and traveling further. A faster player will leg out more hits and be able to advance around the bases faster on balls put in play.
Defensive Benefits – To be a good defender, you must be agile, quick, and possess good body control. Outfielders need to run well to cover more ground. Covering more ground will translate into more caught balls and the ability to field balls before they get into the gaps. Infielders need to be agile and flexible to field balls properly. For example, fielding and throwing “on the run” requires correct technique, but to execute the play properly, a player must have strength and flexibility.
We will also maintain records of each player and test them at various times to track improvements. Players will be tested on the following…
Age Groups: 10-13 and 14 and up
Ages 10-13 Mon,Tue,Wed,Thur 5:30-7 pm
Sat 9-10:30 am
Ages 14+ Mon,Tue,Wed,Thur 7-8:30 pm
Sat 10:30-12 pm
Note: There will be an occasional Sunday class offered when Saturday is not offered
Price: $40 per session
We recommend that you purchase a minimum of 10 sessions at a time. This will allow you to set your schedule at the time of booking. Once you are booked, simply email or call us should you need to
reschedule a session.
To get the most out of the program, we recommend players attend 2-3 classes per week, with 3 being best. Players should not sign up for “back to back” days due to the recovery time needed after the weight training portion of the program.
