We are the National Pitching Association
To be a successful pitcher at any level of the game requires you to be in top physical condition, mentally tough, and emotionally calm. At the NPA we focus on strength and conditioning techniques that enhance skills and reduce the incidence of injuries, as well as mental/emotional practices that build confidence.
The NPA Summer Prep Program is a weekly clinic designed for High School, College, and Professional pitchers who want to train with the NPA staff over the summer at various locations throughout the United States. Enroll for a week, a month or the entire summer!
Each day starts off with a group discussion and Q&A covering topics on Bio-mechanics, Strength & Conditioning, Nutrition, Mental Awareness/Neurofeedback with NPA Founder Tom House, National Director Mark Sheehan and Chief Learning Officer John Jakiemiec.
Get pitcher-specific instruction and training through lectures, on-field drill work and more from the best baseball coaches.
Work on existing skills, master new pitches, improve your mental game. Our Regional Directors are the best coaches around.
Attend one-on-one lessons, small group lessons, Winter Prep, Summer Prep and get daily workouts with us.
We train pitchers and rotational athletes from the MLB, PGA, NFL, and every level in between who are deeply committed to improving their skills and to staying in the game longer. Tom House, NPA founder and former pitching coach for several Major League Baseball teams, has been introducing innovative techniques since working with Nolan Ryan in the mid-1980's. Now, through the NPA’s network of Regional Directors, NPA training is available to even more athletes throughout the U.S.
For many of the best pitchers, and other rotational athletes including football quarterbacks and golfers, Tom House is the go-to expert. Learn more about Tom and watch “The Throwing Doctor,” produced by the Mandt Bros. ➔
Tom's emphasis on functional fitness addresses mechanics and training strategy: No wasted movement and no wasted time, transferring benefits gained in the training room to the pitching mound. You’re getting state-of-the-art and science conditioning ideas for a successful, long pitching career. You’ll find effective and efficient pitcher-specific exercises, drills, workouts, and programs, and you’ll get insights-such as when a sore arm is an injured arm—that will help get you healthy, if necessary, and will keep you healthy.
