16U Baseball Summer Velocity/Strength Program

Summer Showcase Prep Program

Program Description: 99% of baseball players get left off rosters because of ONE THING…Lack of velocity!!! Don’t get left on the bench this summer, train hard and smarter with Koa’s 15U-16U Koa Summer 8-week training program.  Our program is designed to create impact Varsity baseball players and give student-athletes the opportunity to play college baseball. This program will focus on player development and less on games/tournaments. There are two goals for this group; first, we want our athletes to train the correct way, using data and technology in order to improve their baseball skills. Second, training in the weight room (plus a weight bat and ball program) in order to become bigger, faster, and stronger. We will see improvements during the 8 weeks and will be testing metrics throughout the summer.

These test will include: exit velocity, swing speed, throwing velocity, squat, bench, deadlift, broad jump, and pro agility. Each lifting and hitting plan will be tailored to the individual – pitcher, catcher, infielder, and outfielder. We want our athletes to be impact high school players in the spring of 2020. The combination of top-notch facilities, Koa’s professional baseball staff, weighted bats/balls equipment, and the trainers at Power Train will provide the ideal training environment to get to the next level.
