Best advantage your kid can have for advancing his game

04/26/2008 Posted by 4loveofthegame

After reviewing LA Next Level, it is clear that this is far and away the best instructional and developmental institution your child could attend if he is serious about advancing his game. From the drills to the mentorship, this organization goes the extra mile to ensure that your child is taught the right way. Extra care is given to ensure that your child gains the knowledge needed to prevent injury and achieve an advantage over the competition. If you are serious about giving your child this advantage - Next Level is the place for you!

Pros: instruction, ability to play in many tournaments. 

 

 

 

 

Pitching / Throwing training at Next Level Baseball Academy will incorporate the use of the following:

  • Medicine Balls (6 lb, 8 lb, 10 lb, 14 lb, and 18 lb)
  • Advanced Tubing Program
  • Weighted Balls (4oz., 5oz., 7oz., 14oz., 21oz., and 2 lb.)
  • Core Strength and Conditioning Program
  • Incline/Decline Board
  • Baseball Specific Functional Strength Exercises
  • The Pitching Pad  www.thepitchingpad.com 
  • Stalker Radar Gun
  • Arm Care Program
  • Dynamic Warm Up & Stretching Program
  • Conditioning:  Strength, Agility and Power Program

Instruction will focus on the organization, connection, and speed of body movements that occur in a healthy and efficient throwing delivery.  Throwing components such as intent, sync, momentum, tempo, rhythm, posture, efficiency, arm interaction, pelvic loading, and scapular movements will be introduced.  Velocity and command will be emphasized.  Weight training for pitchers is NOT body building!  It is not usually the pitcher's large muscles that break down.  Injury usually occurs in the smaller muscles and connective tissue of the shoulder; therefore, Next Level training is considered to be more functional fitness training.  The number one objective at Next Level Baseball Academy is to enhance performance and decrease the risk of injury.  Students should attend at least twice (2) per week.  Lesson - 90 minutes

 

 

Hitting Program:   (Rotational) Instruction will focus on the fundamental aspects of body movement for the elite level swing.  We incorporate a combination of hitting tee, soft-toss, and live pitching in order to develop the best hitters possible.  We also train using many, many other drills and tools. Conditioning is minimal with this program. There are 8 lanes available for hitting at Next Level Baseball Academy.  Students should attend at least twice (2) per week.  Lesson - 60 minutes

 

Conditioning:  Agility and Power Program   ALL SPORTS!   The number one objective of our Conditioning Program is to enhance a player's functional strength, explosive power, quickness, and their overall 'agility' to play the game of baseball.  We teach fundamental athletic movements and basic quickness mechanics.  Includes proper dynamic warm up and stretching with introduction to full body conditioning via integrated movements. (Included in the Pitching Program)  $25/lesson or $200/12 lessons  7:30pm - 8:15pm   Lesson - 45 minutes

The goal of Next Level Baseball is to communicate a love for the game of baseball through physical and mental strength and conditioning.  Conditioning workouts are quick, spirited, and integrated into teaching the skills of the game.  Success on the field is a result of preparation and commitment.  It requires hard work, dedication, and most of all, training with the proper instruction. 

 


NLB, along with some major league teams and numerous college teams, uses the "The Combat Pitcher" program and the "Athletic Pitcher Program" designed by Ron Wolforth at Pitching Central in Houston, Texas.  www.texasbaseballranch.com/  & www.http://www.combatpitching.com/

 

Coach Forbes attends the "Ultimate Pitching Coaches Boot Camp" http://www.pitchingcentral.com/coachesbootcampdec08.html every year in Houston, Texas and has personally trained with renowned Pitching coach Ron Wolforth of the CAN-AM Sports Academy in Houston Texas. NLB has adopted the training concepts developed and taught in Wolforth's "Athletic Pitcher Program".This is a very comprehensive pre-season, during season, and off-season conditioning program that takes the pitcher through a very structured series of total body strength and conditioning exercises. The program makes extensive use of resistance tubing, medicine balls, incline and decline balance boards, retrograde running, flat ground throwing, and bull pen work.  The end goal of this program is to develop a pitcher with more strength, power, flexibility and dynamic balance. We believe that these attributes will result in better control, increased velocity and much fewer arm problems.
