Pro Pitcher Camps
Train like a Pro @ Rip City!

Former college standout Mike Huller was drafted out of George Mason University by the San Francisco Giants in 1998, and he will team up with Coach Douglas Arguello who was drafted by the Houston Astros straight out of high school from Latin America! They have each been providing technical instruction to little leagues, high school players & collegiate athletes since ending pro ball. They have united to put together their collective and pro experience into the Pro Pitching Program!

Youth & High School players will go through extensive mechanical analysis to promote healthy arm action with increased velocity. Athletes will become regimented on exercises and techniques to train the scapular stabilizers as well as the rotator cuff. The significance of the core & legs will also be a focal point for the Pro Pitching Program.

The 8-week camp provides highly technical instruction, but also focuses exceptional time on strength, flexibility & conditioning. No detail is too small, and the specific warm up program coupled with functional strength training would be enough to separate your athlete from his peers. However, each camper will also receive robust mechanical instruction including involved discussion on the appropriate grips based off their age and natural arm slots to promote natural movement.

Enrollment also affords each pitcher a complimentary Pitcher-Club pass for the duration of the camp. On their days off from camp, pitchers are afforded complimentary indoor access to follow their detailed & prescriptive off-day drills designed by the Professional Pitcher staff. Campers can leverage this benefit any day, however, cages are also booked on specific off dates of camp for pitching camp clients!
