Clinic Player Of The Week
We hear it all the time: We should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. But is this fact or fiction? The Institute of Medicine sets general guidelines for total water intake. It recommends that women consume a total of 91 ounces (that’s about 2.7 liters) per day – from all food and beverages combined. For men, it’s about 125 ounces a day (or 3.7 liters). In sports water is essential to keeping the body hydrated to allow muscle to flow freely. When your child doesn't get enough water, he/she can develop muscle weakness, dry mouth, headaches and fatigue. As few as 10 percent of girls and 15 percent of boys get the recommended amount of water each day, according to the "American Journal of Clinical Nutrition" study. If you want your child to drink more water keeping water in the refrigerator and in bottles or containers that are easy for your child to grab can help encourage him/her to drink more.
We have designed the most comprehensive program for youth athletes entering the game of baseball and softball.
Each of our programs is designed for competitive play with drills and exercises centered on position specific. This means that we teach the athlete technique about their position with understanding the mechanics of the game. We pride ourselves on the fact that our principal quality is our ability to accomplish all of this in a positive, motivating and exciting environment. The following is what Urban Elite Sports provides:
Our philosophy is based on the belief that focused training is the best means through which a player can achieve significant and lasting improvement on the field.
A player's fitness is reflected by the way he accelerates, decelerates and changes directions in a swift manner. Agility drills help in improving the athlete's performance and flexibility while greatly reducing the chances of injury.
A delivered pitch is a significant and common weapon in the arsenal of a pitcher. A pitcher has to maintain good control over the direction as it is delivered to the batter. Multiple drill simulations on variations with your feet, hands, and arms helps develop reaction time, throwing on the run, getting the glove ready to catch and catching in rhythm.
Flexibility and the range of motion is one of the biggest keys to success in baseball. A successful player trains his body to be flexible enough to be able to perform in the best shape possible and range of motion exercises enhance athletic performance and facilitate pain-free movement during daily functional activities. Being flexible and having a large range of motion aids in every aspect of the game. The more flexible and ability to move, the more successful the player will be.
Learning the fundamentals of hitting in baseball, and becoming a great hitter starts with the correct positioning and batting stance in the batter's box. The correct way to grip the bat, proper upper body positioning before the swing, timing and stride, are crucial parts of becoming an effective hitter. The action of the swing and proper mechanics and practice can help you bat with power and make consistent contact.
The most critical moments in a baseball game require players to possess not only the physical skills necessary to perform well, but also the mental toughness to block out distractions and focus. Rehearsing challenging game situations in practice will help you prepare for the possible scenarios which may occur. Practicing techniques for these mental skills can elevate your performance to a new level and give you an edge over the competition.
