Have you noticed that we almost never talk about hitting home runs as the goal?  Yes, I get it.  Swinging for the fences has long been the curse of a good swing.  However, we also know that it is difficult to succeed at the highest level, as a team, without at least one home run threat.  The fact is, there ARE Home Run Hitters and they have learned how to accomplish this on a yearly basis.    

 

Think about it.  College coaches search far and wide for that hitter that has demonstrated home run power.  So, I have decided to not shy away from the Home Run as a goal but it is a very high-level goal and there are quite a few complications as well as high-level physical skills requirements.

 

With this said, we will not just accept any hitter.  There are some requirements to the Crushing It! Program.

 

  1. You must be at least currently in the 8th grade or 14 years old.

  2. If you meet the age (#1) criteria, then you must apply for the Program.  Click here.

  3. The initial application is just joining a mailing list.  It will initiate some automatic emails with some tasks to determine if the athlete is ready for this program.  Some hitters are just not home run hitters and still can be outstanding hitters.  We do not want to try to make a hitter a home run hitter that is either not ready or just not suited to be this type of hitter.

  4. I feel I know what it takes to develop hitters to be home run hitters.  It is hard work and, quite honestly,  I don't want to make this information readily available to the public just yet.  So, once the approval process is completed and the athlete is admitted to the "Crushing It!" Program, we will reveal the 10 week plan.  You will not be required to commit to the program or pay for the program until we both agree this is the path we want to take with this hitter.

 

Here are the features we can share at this time:

  • The program is a 10 Week Program.

  • The program MUST be completed in 12 Weeks.

  • The athlete must be at least 14 years old or currently in the 8th grade.

  • PRE-TEST

    • The athlete will go through a series of pre-testing that is designed to determine the physical ability to be a home run threat by the athletes Senior Year in HS.

    • The pre-test will serve two purposes.  The first is to determine if the hitter qualifies for the program and the second is to establish a starting point for the hitter of which we will gage the level of improvement.

    • The Pre-Test will be part of the first lesson.

  • More to come...
