Legends Founder and former collegiate catcher, David Klein, will be offering a brand new catching course designed for serious catchers looking to take their skills to the next level! Since 2009, collegiate coaches from around the country have been sending catchers to learn under David during the summer and 5 of these players have been drafted into the MLB. David loves nothing more than teaching the position he played his entire life! His attention to detail, high energy and extreme passion for catching will inspire your child to maximize his own unique potential.
Taking place on at 5pm on Wednesdays (in conjunction with our pitching clinic) at the new state of the art facility (The Foundry) these 1.5 hour session for 8 weeks will cover EVERY single skill necessary to transform your child into a strong, confident and legendary catcher!
Footwork:Footwork is crucial for catchers. We will work hard on developing quick feet to improve our ability to catch pitches outside the strikezone, block baseballs and speed up our pop-time throws to bases.
Core Strengthening & Flexibility:Proper stretching and flexibility are especially important for catchers. Your son will learn catcher-specific core strengthening exercises and stretching routines that will increase strength, flexibility and agility while reducing chances of injury.
Throwing:We will work on our throwing mechanics to improve accuracy and quickness. We will play catch everyday and do exercises designed to improve arm strength. Pop times will be reduced without a doubt!
Drills:We will work on several drills designed to reinforce the necessary skills including framing, passed balls, blocking, pop-ups, reaction drills and repetitions from live pitchers.
The Mental game:Catching requires the most thinking on the diamond. We will spend a lot of time on the mental game including pitch calling, mental strategies and handling your pitchers.
