Bring your best stuff onto the field every time-and prepare to win even during those times when "your best stuff" isn't there.
Utilizing video footage, props, demonstrations, and straightforward expert analysis that draws on unmatched personal experience, UCLA Pitching Coach Lisa Fernandez delivers a truly comprehensive clinic on pitching preparation.
Starting with the premise that confidence comes from preparation and mechanics, Coach Fernandez delivers generous amounts of highly detailed insights into how, exactly, she and others at her level prepare to win. She covers everything from instilling the proper 5-phase mechanics and control at the earliest age, to specific visualization techniques for the night before, to game-day preparation, to a unique method for marking the field and guiding the pitcher's stride only moments before she throws the first pitch.
She also presents specific approaches for handling all sorts of in-game adversity, including those moments when "feel" just isn't enough. With valuable tips for players literally at every stage, this is a video that will grow as your players grow, but is also immediately beneficial to women competing at the very highest levels of the sport today.
Take your pitchers into that magical zone where they're both hyped up and in control, dominating hitters from the very first pitch, because they've prepared properly from day one.
