Successful softball athletes not only have to develop the specific skills of throwing, hitting, and fielding but they also have to develop overall athleticism by improving physical abilities such as strength, speed, power, agility, coordination, and mobility. Softball requires highly developed eye and hand coordination combined with throwing, striking, and movement skills. The throwing and hitting components are largely dependant on rotational power.
Optimal base path running and fielding rely on the movement skills of acceleration, top speed running, linear and lateral agility, balance, and coordination. Few other sports involve as many combinations of different skill sets.
Our program addresses all of these performance abilities and more to help every softball player fly around the bases and track down balls in the outfield with lightning speed; drive the softball harder than ever before with greater rotational power, maximal strength and explosiveness; improve fielding skills along with improved throwing velocity and accuracy with more efficient movements, balance, and coordination; and reduce the likeliness of injury with improved mobility, stability, and pre-habilitation exercises.
We invite you to come in and visit our state-of-the-art training center, meet our world-class coaches, and experience how our programs can help improve your performance on the diamond and keep you off the bench and in the game.
Velocity Sports Performance training is designed to help you:
Develop Lightning Speed
The difference between good and great on the diamond? Speed. Proper movement techniques determine whether you make the play in the field or beat out the throw. Velocity Sports Performance training blends proper movement technique with agility exercises to improve both coordination and speed.
Develop Power at the Plate
Nothing makes a hitter more dangerous than the ability to hit the ball with power. We’ll help you develop the rotational power and the maximal strength to drive the softball harder and farther than you ever have before.
Gain Agility and Quickness
Whether you’re a shortstop making a play in the hole or stretching it out as a first baseman, playing at the top of your game demands agility. At Velocity Sports Performance, our certified coaches improve the way you move with protocols that increase foot quickness and balance. This leads to increased range of motion for stronger, more precise throws.
Reduce the Likelihood of Injury
You can’t play the game if you’re sitting on the bench. We’ll help you stay in play with improved flexibility and balance. Reduce the likelihood of injury with Velocity Sports Performance’s “Prehabilitation,” a specialized program that helps decrease the incidence of acute and overuse injuries.
