The Preseason Velocity Program begins in January and will serve as the transition from the foundational strength phase in the Fall to using that strength to develop full body power movements that will create increased velocity. December also serves as the ramp up period for throwing. This period of throwing will focus on throwing technique and gradual increase in throwing tolerance. Again, arm health AND performance are our goals, and we take a gradual, progressive phase of throwing before increasing intensity and volume – which is crucial for injury prevention.
Progressing into January, throwing intensity increases and workouts become more refined to velocity-specific movements. Long toss, throwing mechanics, weighted balls will be used in the program – but under strict guidance and in a safe and guided environment. Each athlete will have their own prescription for velocity development with injury prevention with developing velocity as the primary goal.
