Prime Throwing Academy
What is Prime Throwing Academy?
Prime Throwing Academy - formerly known as Redline Throwing Academy - is the Baltimore area's premier velocity development and pitching instruction program for baseball and softball players, operating out of Prime Sportsplex at 5200 Glen Arm Rd in Towson, MD. We combine mechanics instruction, baseball-specific strength and mobility training, and a weighted ball program to safely and effectively develop throwing velocity and efficient mechanics.
We have worked with a wide range of athletes from 9-year-olds to professional baseball players and all have seen success in our program, with last year's program netting an average velocity increase of 6.78 mph over 8 weeks.
The Prime Difference
Many throwing programs fail to address individual needs with regards to throwing instruction: they prescribe the same drills, stretches, and throwing loads for all of their athletes.
At Prime, we perform individual testing and video analysis before the start of the program, in addition to weekly re-evaluations and testing. This allows us to fine-tune each athlete's workload and drill progression.
We also provide each of our athletes with our At-Home Arm Care Program, which includes stretches and strengthening exercises that they can do on their own to reduce risk of injury. Simply put, this is not your average cookie-cutter throwing program.
We use a wide variety of training methods to develop throwing ability, including:
Medicine Ball Training
Overweight and Underweight Ball Throwing
Progressive Drill Work
At-Home Arm Care Program
Shoulder Strength and Mobility Program
Rapsodo Bullpen Work for Pitchers
½ Hour Individual Lesson - $65
½ Hour Lesson 4-Pack - $225
Pitching instructor will guide athlete through a bullpen session utilizing Rapsodo pitch tracking technology and slow motion video to evaluate pitch velocity and movement, spin rate, spin efficiency, strike %, and release point data. Instructor will also identify mechanical inefficiencies, provide cues to optimize mechanics, and analyze Rapsodo data to improve pitch spin rate/efficiency and movement. Data from bullpen will be provided to athlete at the completion of the session.
