Elite High School Pitchers Program

Coach Jimmy

Welcome to the eighth year of our Elite High School Pitchers Program!  This program is designed to prepare high school pitchers for their season and provide them with additional skills, which should translate into opportunities.  The pitcher must be fully committed to his development in order for this program to be successful.  The results from the players who participated in this program the past seven years are unquestioned.  The vast majority of them saw a major increase in their effectiveness and many of them had the best season of their career. 

Tuition – The tuition for this program is $370 for 6 weeks, there are 12 pitching sessions of 60 minutes.  When you register, there is no payment due BUT we ask that you pay at least half of the tuition before the first session by clicking on the “Fund Account” tab and pay whatever amount you choose.  OR, you can mail a check to 7855 Valley View Rd., Hudson, OH 44236.  Checks should be made out to Play Ball Sports Academy.

The tuition does not include Jonathan’s Explosive Training Class but it is available for only $225 for 12 sessions!  This is an amazing 6-week optional program, which is specifically designed for pitchers.  You do not have to be a part of the pitching program to join the Training Class.

The high school pitchers program will be a twice per week program where the pitchers will work with Coach Jimmy on mechanics, VELOCITY, and “stuff”.  They will also participate (if chosen) in a specially designed strength training (twice per week) designed to build strength, endurance and learn how to “fire their core” to increase velocity.  Mental coaching is also incorporated into the program to help them become an elite high school pitcher.  While all of the other high school pitchers are throwing their weekly bullpens, these students will be making strides to becoming dominant.  This pitching program will be limited to the first 4 students who sign up.  More classes will be added if necessary.  The training program will be limited to the first 8 who sign up.
