Fall Programs: Baseball 13 and older
All of the programs below are for players who are 13-18 years old.
Baseball Velocity Programs
Velocity is one of the most important factors for pitchers and the same thing can be said for exit speed and power for hitters. These skills are often the most important factor in determining where a player will go to college and ultimately his ceiling in the game of baseball.
At Diamond Dreams we’ve designed programs to increase throwing velocity and exit velocity for hitting and we have a few different programs to meet your needs. These programs focus on long-term development. They include baseball specific strength and conditioning along with skill work. They are safe, effective and all inclusive because we focus on other benefits like improving nutrition, body composition, agility and mobility. Take a look at the programs below to see which program would be a good fit for you.
3 Day Velo Program (Throwing Velocity and Exit Velocity)
This is a smaller version of our 5 day Velo Plus program. All players will work on both hitting and pitching (throwing) along with a baseball specific workout to safely increase velocity and bat speed. Monday and Friday are physical conditioning days and Wednesday is the skill (hitting and pitching) day.
The program runs on Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays from 4:30–5:30 pm starting Monday October 1st.
Cost: $650 for the 10 week program
Velo Plus Program (Throwing Velocity Only)
This is the most comprehensive of the velocity programs. It is a 5 day a week program with each night lasting an hour and a half where players focus on improving their throwing velocity. This includes three days of physical conditioning and two skill days. We call it the Velo Plus Program because of the extended time at the academy but also because we will individualize each player’s program to fit their specific needs. We will also expand our focus to include recovery (nutrition and sleep). It’s an intense program that isn’t for everyone. If you think you have what it takes, sign up today! We will accept up to 20 pitchers in the program.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30-9:00 pm and Friday from 6:30-8:00 pm. The program begins on Monday October 1st.
Cost: $1160 for the 10 week program
HitTrax Hitting Program
For the first time, amateur players have access to the same information that the pros have with our HitTrax system! Learn about launch angles, exit velocity, line drive percentage, what parts of the strike zone you excel in, which parts need work, your contact point and much more! Using the HitTrax system each week, you will improve your mechanics as well as set and reach new goals!
This 10 week program runs on Wednesday from 8:00-9:00 pm and costs $395/player. It begins on October 3rd.
Form your own group of 2, 3, or 4 players and come in once a week. You pick the skill or skills that you want to work on. Call for day and time availability.
Cost: 2 players: $45 per player per hour/week, 3 players: $40 per player per hour/week, 4 players: $35 per player per hour/week
Classroom Mental Program
The mental approach is probably the most important aspect of the game and yet it is the least practiced. We’re going to change that. For the first time, we’re offering a classroom type session where players attend weekly to discuss and work on the mental side of the game.
This 10 week program runs on Mondays from 7:00-7:30 pm and costs $150/player. This program begins on Monday October 1st and will include both baseball and softball players.
