Slammers has been running an Arm Velocity program for older players for over 15 years. We have seen many new programs come out recently most notably Driveline.

The Slammers staff has learned about the Driveline program and we have 8 staff members who are Driveline certified so we understand their process. We incorporate a lot of the programming from Driveline in our High School program and have learned a lot regarding the drills and patterning that Driveline uses. We also believe that mechanics is a integral part of pitching.

We understand that players are and will always be in the pursuit of velocity but we want to make sure it is done correctly and safely. We have partnered with Bio Kinetics 3D and Bob Keyes who do bio mechanical anaylsis on many Major League players most notably 2020 Cy Young award winner Trevor Bauer. We will teach the players the drills that we have learned from Bob and his group.

This program will start in November and continue through February. We will have two groups for AVP. One group will workout on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and the other group will workout on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Each group will be broken into the stages outlined below.

Additional in-season program will continue and consist of: strength, arm care, and arm maintenance program but will be built specifically for each Slammers player summer game schedule. We build strength and velocity during the grueling summer and travel season. Includes a travel schedule regiment for out of state tournaments that can be followed easily. Runs from mid-May thru July.

The program will have a foundation of corrective exercise with the end goal of increasing throwing velocity.

The overall program will transition into our upper and lower body program demanding high-force and high-power production with a bridge into proper weighted ball training emphasizing throwing mechanics.

The Arm Velocity program is broken into THREE STAGES:

STAGE 1:

Is dedicated to strength. Building functional strength to increase power and control of body. Runs from November through December.

 

STAGE 2:

Incorporates a graduated throwing program which includes using weighted balls from 2oz to 8oz for overloading and under-loading drills, mechanical work, and continued strength training. Also, included in this phase is the use of technology like Rapsodo. Runs from December thru Mid February.

STAGE 3:

Is an in-season strength, arm care, and arm maintenance program which is crucial to sustaining the gains seen in Stage 1 and 2 while understanding the rigors of in-season games and throwing. Runs from the end of February thru mid-May.

The AVP regimen combines total body power production with weighted ball and pitching related plyometrics to create a multifaceted pitching strength program. 

Measured Performance: Arm and ball velocity are regularly measured and documented to provide objective feedback and ensure program success. We use Rapsodo technology to analyze, correct and perfect.
