ABA hitting program teaches each athlete as an individual. We train and develop each athlete to sequence the body to draw the most speed and power from each swing. Hitting is an explosive movement that requires certain areas of the body to explode with each movement. We will teach how to generate the most bat speed and power but maintain bat control. In our hitting program we also dive into the mental side of hitting. We give the athlete the knowledge to help make a plan at the plate with pitch sequencing, plate discipline, and pitch recognition. We teach an aggressive approach at the plate, which in turn helps each athlete become more conﬁdent and leads to more quality at bats.
ABA pitching program provides the highest level of pitching instruction with the latest science behind throwing mechanics and arm care. We are truly committed to the development of our athletes. We treat each athlete as an individual and create training and development as unique as the person. We not only teach the bio mechanics and the kinetic sequencing of pitching but also the mental side of what it takes to be on the mound.
Throwing is a violent and explosive movement, so we help teach the body and arm to be capable of absorbing the stress that is created in that movement. Understanding the kinetic sequence and how to create the most torque with each throw will allow us to get the most out of each athlete while keeping them the safe from injury. We want to give the athletes the knowledge, skills, and body awareness to be able to maintain success for more that just one pitch or one game. No matter what level of skill or age a player is, we will help that athlete reach his maximum potential with also being pain free. We train for the long term future of every athlete.
We are proud to partner with Movement First and Emily Ferree. Emily has a PT, DPT received her B.S. in kinesiology from USC in 2013. During her time as an undergrad Emily competed on USC’s rowing team, walked on to USC’s soccer team, and graduated at the top of her major department. Emily went on to receive her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at USC where she earned three merit scholarships from the division, became a USC Town and Gown Scholar, earned the division’s Outstanding Scholarly Achievement Award, was awarded the Order of the Golden Cane, which is USC’s top honor for clinical excellence and leadership and graduated at the top of her class. Movement First works with the highest level athletes from the NFL, MLB, NCAA, and other US track and field athletes. Advanced Baseball is proud to partner with a great team of people with the same goals and values as us.
