Here is the scenario - your daughter loves softball and wants to pitch. She has worked to a point where you can no longer help her and she needs a coach.
You want a coach that is:
Problem is, you do not have access to a high quality instructor or can't get on a regular schedule with an instructor. What can you do?
I, Courtney Hudson, have been developing pitchers through my fall program for 10 years. I have a tried and true system to evaluate, rank and take the necessary steps to get pitchers moving through my system.
First, the evaluation. I developed a scoring system including everything I expect pitchers to do each pitch. Each motion is given a point value. Pitchers can score 0-100 with 100 being a perfect pitch. I account for proper wind up, power position, landing, weight shift, and timing of all moving parts. I have drills already set in place to help get pitchers to the perfect 100 score.

The online students will have 8 official video reviews throughout the 6 month program. Videos are welcomed as often as needed for checkups and confirmation. Only 8 will get the full 100 point review.
After the initial review, the student will be classified in my ranking system based on their current level. Rank has levels A-D and 1-4. D4 rank is a brand new pitcher, someone with zero experience. A1 rank is 17-18 year old college bound pitchers. D level represents beginner pitchers. My 8 week beginner program can get a D4 pitcher to a D1 or C1 rank.
C level works the pitcher through learning changeups, locating fastballs, using changeups in games, and basic game management strategies. Progression through this level will depend mostly on game experience and learning how to get batters out and important qualities
B level is learning movement pitches and increasing velocity. Pitchers spend the most time in level B. Learning each movement pitch, improving velocity, and mastering game management strategies that keep you one step ahead of the batter.
A level is is colege bound athletes. This includes GPA and SAT/ACT scores. This also covers physical requirements college coaches expect as a baseline of fitness. Velocity and ERA are also factored in for level A to get noticed by college programs.
Speed will be monitored throughout the program. Velocity will be addressed with strength training and mechanics with a brief focus on speed improvement drills. My over all goal for velocity is to add 3 mph to your initial top speed and be able to sustain that new speed throughout a game.
There are workouts involved throughout the program. Stability and mobility with a strong core is the ultimate goal. Creating better athletes will produce more efficient motions. I also incoororate J-Band arm care programs. Each participant will receive a J-Band as apart of the program.
