100-Level Courses (The Foundation Series)

Course 101: Getting Started with Fastpitch Foundations

Reg. Price: $19.95 | Premium Price: FREE

In addition to learning how to navigate our courseware, we’ll cover the most basic concepts here prior to our live presentation coursework. The topics that will be covered are basic, but critical starting points for all. The first section, Absolute Basics, will cover the basic rules, grips and equipment considerations you should make as you start your journey.

In the second section, you’ll learn the basics of recording and reviewing video. Arguably the most useful teaching and learning tool, we’ll give you some practical tips and solutions for conducting your own video review.

In the final course section, we’ll take a look at what educators often describe as a “Whole-Part-Whole” analysis of the pitching motion. It is here you’ll start to have “eyes to see” how to break the pitch into efficient sections – as well as learn some of the key Fastpitch Foundations vocabulary terms.

Course 102: Building a Foundation

Reg. Price: $89.95 | Premium Price: $79.95

Now that you have the framework in place for a great foundation, we will show you how we build the pitching motion from the "ground on up".

In this course, we will introduce the concepts of efficiently getting into a Release Posture as well as some Pitching Circle components.  This is a method introduction, and one of the more critical components for all subsequent skills - as these foundational patterns must be in place prior to learning other concepts.

This also marks the beginning of "Bookend" live presentations.  Our self-study material will be prefaced with live demonstrations to assist you in your learning quest.  After completing the self-study section, a final live presentation will take place.  During this final course presentation, Rich and Mike will make sure you have the opportunity to have your course specific questions answered!

The bookend presentations will be recorded and made available to those who weren't available.

Course 103A: Mentally Assessing Your Foundation

Reg. Price: $89.95 | Premium Price: $79.95

Course 103 has been completely rebuilt and is now broken into a progressive series of assessment courses.  In 103A, we will spend the time necessary to cover the importance of establishing assessment criteria for coaches, players, and parents.

In addition to downloadable assessment forms, we will expand your foundation and spend more time with you in live training environments.

103A lays the foundation of assessments and succinctly breaks pitching development up into four manageable pieces.  Additionally, we will introduce our 80-20 concept, and show you how to maximize the development of pitchers, focusing on the fundamentals that impact the motion the most.

Remember, what gets measured, gets accomplished.
