PHASE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The Phase Development Program is designed to implement corrective strategies to positively influence the rate of development for any baseball pitcher. The program consists of seven distinct phases that ultimately work towards a pitcher's longevity and optimal performance in a game situation.
The Phase Development Program works best when a teacher has an initial DVS Score of a pitcher and can begin to use the program to choose the corresponding phase that best correlates to the pitcher's area of deficiency. The flow chart below serves as a baseline template on how to progress a pitcher throughout the various phases of the program.
The flow chart below serves as a baseline template on how to progress a pitcher throughout the various phases of the program. Looking at the chart, you will notice the last phase, #7 is Optimal Performance. There is no shortcut to sustainable success, which is why a pitcher's total understanding and functionality through the first six phases is ideal for his development. Your job as the teacher is to fully communicate the purpose of each phase and oversee successful implementation of a particular phase before advancing through the program.
PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT
The development of the pitching delivery consists of seven distinct phases; Acceleration Phase 1, Transfer Phase, Acceleration Phase 2, Deceleration Phase, Blending, Consistency, and Optimal Performance. Each phase comes drills, exercises, and movements to improve a pitcher's ability to understand how to use correct energy to time up a healthy, consistent, and powerful delivery.
