I.T.S. Baseball Catching Lessons
The goal for a catching evaluation is to understand the player’s personality (vocal/communication abilities, knowledge of the position, and body type) and figure out his/her strengths and weaknesses behind the plate. Even as the player gets ready, we study his/her equipment and the way they use it. We look at stances behind the plate and run through receiving drills, paying close attention to flexibility and range of movement. After running through footwork, blocking, and agility drills, we’ll ask your player about his/her knowledge of the position, “situations & plays”. The instructor breaks down your player’s performance, strengths/weaknesses, and asks what his/her goals are for the program and baseball/softball as a whole. The evaluation ends with the instructor laying out a plan for the lesson program and your player’s development.

Lessons: The I.T.S. Baseball Difference
Lessons are customized to the catcher and his/her style, however like most positions; we must master the basics first. Besides being vocal, receiving is the most important thing for a catcher; therefore we focus heavily on being able to catch correctly and efficiently. Each lesson is not just catching bullpen; we also focus on movements and flexibility, so lessons frequently include med ball work, dot drills, using resistance bands, and footwork/agility exercises. We often record new video footage and compare it to previous recordings to track your progress and develop faster pop up times and ball to glove speeds.
