WHAT YOU GET AT OUR CLINICS. AND WHY.
Pitching Assessments & Velocity Training
Each athlete will be evaluated on the mound for their throwing efficiency. You’ll also receive a set of weighted baseballs and be guided through the NPA Velocity Program. This is what started it all! The current overload/underload phenomenon to increase velocity started with this weighted ball program. As Directors at the NPA, we worked on the research and development of this program to create THE SAFEST velocity improvement program in the nation. Learn what you need to work on to be more efficient, stay healthy and add velocity.
Simple adjustments will be made to enhance efficiency in throwing mechanics so that you can command the zone better without compromising potential injury risks. Our decades of experience collecting data using 3D motion capture systems has educated us on how to identify the most common mechanical problems and how to correct them. We’ll also look at off-speed pitches to make sure they’re being thrown correctly, or if adjustments need to be made for better results. Data on spin rate and velocity will also be taken.
Strength Training Guidance
Improve performance not only on the mound, but in the field and at the plate! We’ll show the most appropriate way to add strength specific to baseball that will get you the same benefits as heavy lifting, without the risks. We will also introduce proper weighted ball usage for arm durability and velocity increases.
Pitching Strategies for Success
What is the most important pitch? When should you throw your curveball? How do you disrupt the timing of a hitter when all you have working is a fastball. There are lots of ways to get guys out without needing “nasty stuff” and we’ll give you the pitching strategies to do so.
Positive Mindset Management for Success
The biggest killer to an athlete’s success comes not on the field, but between the ears. We’ll delve into what goes on inside the athlete’s mind and how to avoid the mental traps that can keep you from being the best that you can possibly be. Here’s a hint: you “play” baseball, you don’t “work” baseball.
Nutrition and Sleep Guidance
One of the least talked about subjects, yet extremely vital to recovery and feeling good each time you’re on the mound, is nutrition. Learn the fundamentals of proper nutrition, what and when to eat, and why good quality sleep matters and needs to be a part of the formula.

“Flew out from TN to spend a week doing motion capture analysis and train with these guys. Best money we have spent ever for my son’s pitching. They care more about preventing injury than anyone we’ve ever worked with and by the end of the week we already saw a huge improvement in his mechanics and velocity. We’ll be back!”Kent Hooper

Why trust us?
In a word: experience. In the decades that the NPA has been around, we have combined scientific research with practical application (and yes, lots of trial and error) to find the best ways that make each pitcher the best they can be without changing what makes them and their style unique. Not everyone throws the same, but there are fundamentals that need to be followed to be efficient and durable. Our mission is to help each athlete that walks through our door to be better when they leave than when they came. We literally work with pitchers every single day at our facility helping them improve, and thus have learned countless ways to help different types of pitchers improve their performance. This is what we do, and have been doing it for a long time.
How many players are typically in a clinic?
These clinics are VERY limited. We only accept the first 15 sign-ups… Why do we keep it so small? We want each athlete to be able to get hands-on time with the coaches. In a nutshell, we take pride in what we do. This is NOT a cattle call clinic. Every pitcher will leave knowing they received individual attention… The 3D Motion Capture clinic is even more exclusive. We only accept 10 sign-ups due to the time required to get each athlete on camera and assessed properly.
Do you provide lunch?
No. However, there is ample time to leave the facility to get lunch. In the past, participants have brought a Subway sandwich with them, or something similar. We can also give you ideas on places nearby that are available.
What should I wear and bring?
Each athlete will go through a workout before throwing, so wear standard workout gear (shorts OK) with gym shoes. You will also need your cleats, glove and some water. Each athlete will sweat quite a bit so plan clothes accordingly depending on the length of your time here.
Where should we stay?
We suggest doing your own research on places to stay since everyone has different budgets and requirements. Disneyland is about 8 miles north and Newport Beach is about 11 miles south. Most our athletes and families like to stay close one or the other… There are no hotels walking distance to the facility that we can recommend. Before making arrangements in the immediate area surrounding our facility please check with us first since our facility is in an industrial area.
Do you provide transportation to/from the facility?
No. You’ll need to make your own arrangements for transportation to and from the facility. We DO have adequate parking at our facility in an enclosed lot.
