Thanks for the input. A lot of what you offered I am including in the format. However, I should have given a better idea of what I’m doing.
The “clinic” actually has 6 parts to it with each one lasting a total of 30 minutes. They are being video-taped for play on our local community channel. That way if a person can use any of the content, he/she doesn’t have to worry about setting aside a specific day or time to be in attendance. All they need do is tape one or more if any of the content would be/could be of use. Plus, if they’re busy right at that moment, they can still tape it and watch it later at their convenience.
Clinic #1 - Basic Mechanics in Pitching
Too much to list here but, simply put, it covers each step in throwing
beginning with the wind-up and ending with the follow-through
Clinic #2 - Grips & Stuff
A. Warming up to throw
B. Pitch grips
C. Finger Pressure
D. Pitch Count/Pitching charts
E. Care of the Mound
Clinic #3 - Physical Therapy & Conditioning
A. Proper care of the arm OFF season
B. Proper care of the am IN season
C. Ice vs. Heat
D. What to do if you think your pitcher’s hurting
Clinic #4 - Proper Equipment
A. The glove and how to break it in
B. Glove size and type
C. Footwear - types of cleats
D. “Protective” equipment
Clinic #5 - Coaching Philosophy
A. The coach’s expectation
B. The player’s expectation
C. The parent’s expectation
D. Dealing with opposing coaches
E. Working with your own coaches
F. Using another’s knowledge/talent
Clinic #6 - Believe-based Coaching vs. Science-based Technology
The impact of scientific technology on “traditional” coaching
There’s obviously more detail involved with each, but this gives a better picture of the areas that will be addressed. Clinic #1 is, to me, the most important (though I’m sure others may disagree) and that’s the one I would like input on.
Again, thanks for the help.
