Catcher University exists to train, inspire, and equip catchers for greatness on and off the field. Our classes are one of the main ways that we fulfill our mission.
Catcher University classes provide a small group training environment where catchers are guaranteed an 8:1 player/instructor ratio. Every class session includes 15-30 minutes spent in the classroom covering the leadership, mindset, and mental aspects of catching. Then, each class session also includes 60-75 minutes of physical training that primarily focuses on the core essentials of receiving, blocking, and throwing. We will also cover the extra skills required for catchers such as fielding bunts, plays at the plate, and pop-ups as the opportunity presents itself, but our primary focus will always be on the “big three” of catching – receiving, blocking, and throwing.
Catcher University EVP Classes include the Standard Catcher University program but has an emphasis on the Elite Velocity Program that includes arm strength, arm action, and overall pop-time emphasis. Due to the focus on arm strength and and it’s corresponding exercises this class is only open to catcher 14 and older based on the fact that players 14 and older have the bodies that are best suited for the strength work using weighted balls, etc.
