Tools of Intelligence Catching Program

“A catcher must want to catch. He must make up his mind that it isn’t the terrible job it is painted, and that he isn’t going to say every day, why, oh why with so many other positions in baseball did I take up this one.”
Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey

The TOI Program is designed for players who are committed to improving and learning the proper skills to be an effective catcher. Good information and consistent repetition on receiving, throwing, blocking, and footwork is the key to being a successful catcher, and as the least instructed position on the field, it be must be taught with care and accuracy. The ProSwing instructors have the training and playing experience as catchers to teach the position like no one else. At the TOI Program we make sure through explanation and demonstration, that all our students leave with an understanding of all the concepts and skills we teach, so, they can continue to improve independently. We teach the position with efficiency and precision.

Know where you stand

As part of the TOI Program, each player will receive a comprehensive evaluation from our trained staff. The player’s core strengths and weaknesses will be evaluated in a productive and constructive manner. This initial evaluation will serve as a reference point and a way to measure each player’s growth throughout the years. In addition, each player will receive a fair and straightforward assessment of where they fall within their age group.
