***Congratulations to my Junior and Seniors that made the Kansas City Royals
Propect Team this past fall and to my students who were selected to play in
the South Atlantic Border Battles at University of North Carolina
Ever wonder why so many high school pitchers top out in low to mid 80's? Why only a few go on to higher levels? Why so few ever reach their full potential? Simple, majority of these pitchers are being taught mechanics that are holding them back.
Why not use the same mechanics as Major Leaguers who did reach their full potential.
If you are working with anyone on pitching and they are not using video analysis, then you are wasting your time and money. The pitching motion takes approximately 1.1-2.0 seconds and needs to be slowed down on video to see the true motions.
Dwayne will break down your pitching and show you through extensive video analysis what you are doing that is holding you back.
Dont become part of the 95% of high school pitchers who never reach their goal because they buy into pitching philosophies and terms that do not work such as stand tall and fall, keep front shoulder down, shorten your stride, pause during wind up or do not drag backfoot. Instead become part of the 5% that do make it to the next level
As with pitching, Hitting needs to be broken down in slow motion and is why Dwayne uses video analysis for hitting students as well. Dwayne will show you flaws that are robbing you of your power and consitency. We adapt our hitting style to the individual instead of using a cookie cutter system or camps with 60 athletes to 1 instructor.
We do NOT offer batting cage rentals. We are an instruction facility with at atmosphere that is conducive to learning.
