Who do you coach?
Our coaches train youth, high school, college, and professional pitchers to increase velocity and accuracy while staying injury-free.
How old does an athlete have to be to begin the NPA program?
We train pitchers of all ages and skill levels. The main thing our coaches look for in athletes who want to train with us is the physical and mental maturity to be able to take part in our program. Generally, most of our youth trainees start at 9-10 years old, but our coaches treat each athlete as an individual, as we know biological age may differ from chronological age.
Can parents attend?
Yes! Most of our programs are set up for parent attendance. We encourage parents of pitchers to attend to learn the topics and information and be able to support their athletes at home.
