Progressive Hitting Program

The Progressive Hitting Program has been a highly successful and popular camp supporting a format that mimics the same techniques utilized by major league hitters. Players will spend 1 hour every week for 14 weeks (High School) or 18 weeks (Youth) learning the core mechanics of hitting which in turn will help hitters develop and reach their full potential.

During this extensive program various techniques will be performed ranging from verbal and video assessments to drill work that can be performed at home. The video assessments will compare each hitter to Major League hitters to help identify and resolve pertinent hitting flaws throughout the program. This unique approach will enable the hitter to be taught what they are doing and how to make the necessary adjustments which will increase the probability of success.

The Progressive Hitting Program will be run by former Major League Player Darron Cox a 14 year professional baseball veteran, at both AAA and Major League levels. Coach Cox was a professional manager and hitting instructor for the Colorado Rockies Organization.
