1. Pitching Foundations

Mechanics | Conditioning | Nutrition | Mental/Emotional MGT

Bio-mechanical Signature – utilizing proper timing, kinematic sequencing, and efficient mechanics – pitchers are only as efficient as their worst movement

o We will use specifically designed NPA drills, addressing in order every part of the pitching delivery. With expert supervision, these drills will literally teach your body to pitch. If you’ve seen the movie Million Dollar Arm, this is exactly the process Rinku and Dinesh followed. Having never seen a baseball in their lives (let alone thrown one), these drills taught them to pitch so effectively that they signed professional baseball contracts just 7 months after beginning their training! They were SUPER dedicated, of course! And they started with the genetic ability to pick up a 5 oz. foreign object and awkwardly throw it over 85 mph. Not typical! But starting from where you are, the process you will learn is the very same process they followed.

Functional Strength – balancing movement mobility, stability, and function with performance training for rotational force production and delivery, and the endurance and stamina to safely support bio-mechanical efficiency and repetitive workloads – pitchers are only as strong as their weakest link

o Stretched your arm and shoulder out lately? “Absolutely, with every warm-up!” you say? You might want to think again! Traditional shoulder stretches commonly done as part of baseball “warm-ups” can result in permanently reduced capacity for velocity! Learn why this is, and what to do instead to take care of your arm and body, and to preserve your velocity! Add to this, quality movement and functional fitness specifically for rotational athletes, and you have a winning combination for injury prevention and durability.

Nutritional Management – metabolic management for fueling training, competition, and total body recovery

o You are what you eat; what else can you possibly be? If it says Ding Dong on the wrapper, well…

90% of this game is half mental Yogi Berra
facilitating mind/body interaction, preparation, competitive toughness, focus, accomplishment of goals, and building skills for life (90% of this game is half mental – Yogi Berra)

o The mental (thinking) and emotional (feeling) aspects of competition are as important to your success as any other factor. You’ll learn to read opposing hitters’ vulnerabilities, the science behind using location to constantly upset their timing (Hitting is timing; pitching is upsetting timing – Warren Spahn), and how to stay focused in the moment, no matter what just happened, good or bad. Energize your training and your life by setting quality goals and actually achieving them!

§ Note for parents and serious athletes: Used properly, baseball (and pitching) is a tool to help produce quality human beings. I will help your athlete to understand, set, and achieve quality goals for on the field, in the classroom, at home, and in the community and/or church. Your pitcher will come to understand the connection between preparation and performance on the field and preparation and performance in life!

Course consists of ten (10) ca. 2 hour sessions! of integrated training in everything you see above. We’re not messing around here! Far more powerful than a few short lessons, this course has the power to literally transform you.
Simplified course with shorter sessions for ages 12 and under.

In the best NPA tradition, Steve is a perpetual student – both of the game, and of the effect it can and should have on players’ lives. This has helped him to become one of our most motivated, knowledgeable, and experienced NPA-certified coaches.

logo160px Our Promise


Baseball is a game of failure, [commonly] coached by negative people, in a misinformation environment Tom House

Ouch! How are we supposed to wring success and fun out of that?!
The fact is, baseball is a game of failure. The best hitters fail 7 out of 10 times. The best pitchers fail half the time. Our success is defined by how we recover and rise to the next challenge.
– But baseball coaches can choose to be something better than negative.
– And there is better information available today than ever before, if we seek it out, verify it, and use it!

Present the best pitching information in the world in such a way that each player personally understands how it uniquely applies to him. Today’s pitcher deserves more than the “This worked for me, why don’t you try it” method of instruction. Universal principles of performance are applied uniquely to each pitcher.



Each pitcher will leave each session more passionate and motivated about the game (and about life!) than when he arrived. Learning is power. (And it’s fun!) That power, in baseball, is motivational! Pitchers will be motivated to practice and hone their skills, making UPA a better investment for their time, and for your money!
