About This Activity

The physical demands placed on baseball and softball players are unlike that of any other sport. The games basic skills require incredible amounts of power and speed that must be combined with balance and stability in order to perform them with precision. The athletic, core-based training style employed by Diamondawgs Conditioning will develop an athlete's strength while teaching them to stabilize their pelvis and core, maintain balance throughout dynamic movements, transfer power efficiently through the body, repeat mechanics with precision, move with greater efficiency and speed. Each training session will be led by head strength & conditioning coach Thomas Scarr (BKIN, CSCS-candidate). Thomas is a former college pitcher and has a vast knowledge of the physical demands of the game. He works with elite level baseball players with the National Sport Academy and hockey players at Crash Conditioning. His baseball experience and desire to learn as a player and coach has helped Thomas develop into a key asset in player development. His attention to detail allows for the construction of programs that will maximize a baseball players athleticism and movement efficiency. The focus of our session during January and February will be to take the athlete’s strength and turn it into baseball-specific power. Exercise tempos will increase and movements will more closely approximate skills performed on the field. Workloads will be tapered to have athletes peak for their evaluations and Opening Day. An off-season strength program that builds balance, strength, power, and agility will improve: -Power at the plate -Bat control -Velocity on the mound -Ability to locate pitches -Range at all positions -Foot speed on defense -Speed on the base paths -Ability to stay healthy all season Small Group Training will Emphasize: -Low Coach to Player Ratio -1-on-1 Attention -Motivating Group Atmosphere -Movement-Based Athletic Style of Training
