Koa Sports 16U Summer Baseball

Summer Showcase Prep Program

Program Description: The 15U-16U Koa Summer 8-week training program is designed for student athletes who have the aspirations of playing college baseball and impact Varsity players. This program will focus more on player development and less on 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 in order to become bigger, faster, and stronger. The goal is for these athletes to develop and grow both on the field and in the weight room. We want to see improvements across the board in the data and metrics we will be testing 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 the following spring. The combination of top notch facilities, Koa’s professional baseball staff, and the trainers at Power Train will provide the perfect environment to get to the next level.
