The Top Gun Throwing Program

The Top Gun Complete Arm Care Pitching Program is a training regiment specifically designed to help pitchers during a critical point in their off-season. It’s a six week program with an emphasis on velocity development, pitch design, and strength & conditioning. This program will be focusing on long toss twice a week, light medicine ball drills to work on pitching mechanics, and a proper post-throwing recovery protocol. There will be bullpens, once a week, to feel the mechanical changes on the mound that we work on through long toss and medicine balls. The bullpen days will be focusing on command and intent. The primary long toss day (Monday or Tuesday depending on the age) will focus on learning how to long toss, feeling the external rotation of the throwing shoulder, and then will finish with a pulldown phrase, building speed on the internal rotation of the shoulder. The third for ages 13+ will be more of a mechanical day, using medicine balls and other pitching drills to focus on lower-half pitching mechanics and how involved our legs should be. For the ages 9-12, medicine ball mechanical drills will be performed on both days of the week to feel proper lower-half pitching mechanics. Both age groups will finish all throwing sessions with a post-throwing recovery protocol to build back up the shoulder and forearm.


Points of Emphasis

Top Gun Complete Arm Care Pitching Program is a pitching program centered around velocity development, pitch design, and arm care recovery designed for ages 10+. The program will use:

  • Medicine Ball Mechanical Drills
  • Plyoball Throwing Drills
  • Long Toss Throwing
  • Weighted Ball Velocity Tracking
  • Bullpens captured with Slow-Motion Camera
  • Arm Care Recovery Protocols
  • Strength & Conditioning Powered by Total Performance

Knowing where you stand

As part of the Top Gun Throwing 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. The initial evaluation with radar gun reading will serve as a reference point and a way to measure each player’s development throughout the program.
