from 25.00

DNA Academy’s mission is to elevate the level of training and skill development for all participants.   Objectives covered in DNA Academy’s Player Development Clinics Include: 

·      Customized hitting instruction with a focus on building a more efficient and repeatable swing;

·      Biomechanically based pitching instruction with a heightened focus on arm health, throwing to different spots, safely creating movement, and changing speeds and eye levels – not just increasing velocity;

·      Utilizing video analysis to increase each participant’s understanding of the baseball swing and pitching motion, prescribing a series of customized drills aimed at correcting each player’s unique faults, and teaching each athlete how to analyze, self-correct, and troubleshoot to avoid slumps and common pitfalls;

·      Building a strong foundation for defensive skills – including proper footwork, glove position, and throwing techniques.
