Get individualized attention in a small group setting from the best pitching coaches

We’ve found that athletes learn more quickly in a small group environment when they can watch others being coached at the same time, so most of our general training is in groups. However, every athlete will get individual attention when they are on the mound or doing drills. This allows every pitcher to get instruction specific to their particular needs.

“Working with Randy and Charlie is like working directly with me. They know how to analyze, assess and correct as if I was there myself. Having worked alongside me for over 20 years and been actively involved in research and development, and a full understanding of all the NPA protocols, I’d entrust my own son to them. Nobody is better!”

-Tom House, NPA founder

The NPA West Coaches

The best baseball coaches, period. No quick fixes. No gimmicks. What we do just works. And we work with the best.

Randy Wishmyer
Randy Wishmyer Randy has worked closely with NPA Founder Tom House for 18 of his 28 years as a coach, helping pitchers improve their skills both as individual players and team members. In addition to the important work he does with the NPA, Randy has also coached for both high schools and collegiate teams so he understands well the environment at those levels. Whether with a little leaguer or one of his MLB clients, Randy focuses heavily on the four legs of the NPA methodology: bio-mechanics, strength/conditioning, nutrition and mental/emotional preparation. Randy believes strongly that the science-based research the NPA provides to athletes is one of the driving forces behind its mission to better inform, instruct and inspire players to raise their level of play, to stay healthy, and enjoy playing baseball longer.
Charlie Nootbaar
Charlie Nootbaar A former collegiate-level player, Charlie has been actively coaching for almost 20 years, from levels spanning Little League through pro ball. Passionate about research and science, he leads projects designed to improve the health, durability, and performance of pitchers. He takes great pride in educating athletes with information that will make them better pitchers, teammates and students. Charlie has successful baseball players of his own. His older son was drafted in the 12th round by the Baltimore Orioles, and his younger son is currently playing D1 baseball in the PAC12.
Jordan Oseguera
Jordan Oseguera Jordan handles most of the video analysis reports and is our lead video analyst.  After five years on the field as an NPA coach, Jordan was hired by the Los Angeles Angels and is currently a minor league pitching coach and video analyst for the organization. Jordan started his baseball career at Taylorsville High School (Utah) under Steve Cramblitt, an American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Coach of the Year. He played one year at the College of Southern Idaho under ABCA Hall of Fame coach Skip Walker, before transferring to Vanguard University, where he was a member of the winningest team in the school’s history. After college, Jordan played professionally in independent baseball with the Yuma Scorpions, Tijuana Cimmarrones, Roswell Invaders, Ruidoso Osos and the McCallen Thunder. Because no two pitchers are alike, Jordan feels it’s important to find specific solutions for each player’s needs. As an NPA coach he’s constantly refining the process he uses to help players of all levels improve. Jordan currently divides his time between coaching in the Los Angeles Angels minor league system and working with the NPA.
Tom House
Tom House Tom House is considered by many to be the “father of modern pitching mechanics.” He is the founder of The Rod Dedeaux Research and Baseball Institute (RDRBI) and The National Pitching Association (NPA). The RDRBI and NPA are renowned for their health and performance research and development involving three-dimensional analysis of human movement, physical preparation and training to support rotational athletes in movement, identifying the metabolic requirements of proper nutrition to fuel human activity, and mentoring athletes’ competition with mental/emotional management skills. Tom pitched at the professional level from 1967 to 1979 for the Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, and Seattle Mariners. He coached from 1980 to 1997 for the Houston Astros, San Diego Padres, Texas Rangers, and Chiba Lotte Marines (Japan), as well as in Latin America. On the amateur level, Tom is an information and instruction coordinator for numerous baseball academies across the United States and Canada. He directly accesses thousands of players, coaches, and parents per year in clinic settings and travels the world as an international consultant, performance analyst, and sports psychologist. He is also an advisor with the American Sports Medicine Institute, the Titleist Performance Institute, and he has given seminars for the American College of Sports Medicine. Tom has also worked with NFL quarterbacks Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Alex Smith, Carson Palmer, Matt Cassell, Terrelle Pryor as well as other collegiate-level football players.
