video analysis & Review

purpose

To review, either initially or consistently, mechanical pattern efficiency.  This provides an opportunity for both players and coaches to use video analysis to monitor developmental goals, as well as set up or track goals throughout the duration of the throwing program.

implementation

Training Phase 1A should frequently be visited as you progress through the program as it relates to pattern improvement, and there are no restrictions based on the fact that it doesn't involve throwing.  The best way to utilize Training Phase 1A is to clearly outline the goals you have for maintaining and improving your throwing mechanics.  We recommend evaluating your game film the day after you throw in a Game or Performance Phase.  This day will typically be used as a recovery day anyway, therefore, in addition to your band work and maybe some light throwing, spending time reviewing your mechanics will be the best use of your time.

MONITOR PROGRESS WITH dvs

Consistency or inconsistency within your throwing mechanics will ultimately surface when it truly counts; in games.  Therefore, use Training Phase 1A to spot inconsistencies in what you feel, but may not be happening during the course of your throw. The video doesn't lie!  Therefore, if you are unsure of the role your throwing mechanics are playing on both your health and throwing performance, you have the option of uploading video of your throwing mechanics to DVS for to receive your DVS Score.  Your Thrower's Handbook can guide you on how to start monitoring your progress.
