Fall Velocity Program

Use this fall to make your arm a threat on the baseball field by joining the Fall Velocity Program offered at the GRB Academy.  The very popular program is back for its third year and has sold out each of the past two years.  Not just for pitchers, both infielders and outfielders can find this program highly beneficial.  It is designed for any player that is looking to increase throwing velocity before the off-season begins.

Using both velocity building and recovery protocols developed by Driveline Baseball, the GRB Academy is proud to offer a full program that gives players the opportunity to increase throwing velocity as well as increase throwing efficiency and overall arm health.  At each session, players will go through three phases of focus; Activation, Velocity Development, and Recovery.  All three phases will include top of the line equipment designed by Jaeger Sports and Driveline Baseball.

Players will begin their session by going through a body activation series followed by band work developed by Jaeger Sports which focuses on stabilizing the shoulders, elbows, and scaps.  Following the band work is a drill series using plyocare balls and a throwing program developed to teach proper movements to make throwers more efficient to maximize throwing velocity.

Once players have completed the throwing program they will commence the weighted baseball portion of the program.  Here players will use baseballs of various weights ( 3 oz.- 11 oz.) as they work their way through a four phase program.  This phase of the camp is built around a highly competitive environment where members of the program push each other as the velocity of each throw is broadcast on an LED Board.  The training environment is one of the reasons players find this program so successful.

Time: 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Fall Pitching Program

Join GRB Academy this Fall to become the complete pitcher.  In the Fall Pitching Program, players will be introduced to a workload which will include work in the following areas: throwing mechanics, pitch grips and types, healthy shoulder, scap, and forearm activation,  as well as strength and conditioning.  Athletes will meet twice a week at the new GRB Academy, one of the top facilities in the midwest.  Players will have the chance to use the advanced space to increase throwing capacity.  Use of several strength and recovery modalities will be utilized to help players maximize their time at each session.

 The athletes will progress throughout the Fall with a throwing program that will take them through work on both flat ground as well as on game mounds.  Getting this vital work before the majority of other players shows to be beneficial in how athletes prepare for a season.  Be sure to take advantage of the great program and become a complete pitcher.
