With Kyla Holas, University of Houston Head Coach;
holds the most wins in Conference USA history;2x Conference USA Coach of the Year; 4x Conference USA champions; 3x All American at Louisiana-Lafayette
Kyla Holas presents a series of pitching workouts and the various options within them that will get your pitchers in top form for the start of the season.
Coach Holas begins by discussing how she plans pitching workouts using a calendar and working backwards, while keeping in mind her objectives for the pitching staff. From there, she is able to plan out her practices and track the number of pitches her pitchers throw each day and each week to ensure they will be at their best for every game.
Coach Holas discusses the six types of pitching workouts.
For each workout, Coach Holas starts in the classroom and describes each drill. She then moves to the field and has one of her pitchers perform the drills and activities.
To explain the drills, Coach Holas has her pitcher demonstrate. The drills use items such as a balance beam, balance board, foot box, Power Drive, poles, cones, and tees. She also discusses the contents of a bucket that she gives to each of her pitchers at the beginning of the year. The bucket includes thirteen items such as balls of different size and weight, a Frisbee, football, sock ball, double ball, spinner, towel, and more.
All in all, Coach Holas introduces over 30 drills and demonstrates 20 items and pieces of equipment that she uses in her pitching workouts.
This DVD will be a valuable resource for coaches at all levels looking to find better workouts to fully develop their pitching staff.
