Testimonials - Inform, Instruct, and Inspire
The National Pitching Association is proud and honored to have the opportunity to make a difference in athletes lives. We strive to help young athletes make better choices both on and off the field, as well as improve their performance through knowledge and inspiration. Here are just a few comments that have come back to us from some of the young athletes we have worked with. We hope to see you at an NPA camp soon!
"I just want to thank you for the very informative session at your camp. My son came away wanting more from your program. He happened to pitch on Saturday and I told him not to try everything, but just to work in one of the simplest changes that he could. So he worked on splitting the ball down the middle. Well, it worked so well that he threw a no hitter on Saturday! He struck out 16 and the other two outs were on attempted bunts. We will continue to incorporate your methods and we hope to get down to see you for another camp soon. Thanks again."
"I just wanted to take a moment and pass on my thanks to the NPA staff for the weekend pitching workshop. It was probably the most valuable three days my son has ever spent from a development viewpoint.
In June of last year, Sean was one of the best pitchers in our area. He had come off a winning season, and after a terrific showing at the Stanford camp he was heavily recruited. He tore his labrum during that period and he was only able to start throwing again in February. He has really struggled since then.
One week ago he pitched two innings during an intra-squad workout. He walked five batters, gave up six hits and four runs. He was totally disgusted and was really questioning whether he would be able to recover his skills.
Yesterday, he threw two innings during an inter-squad against the heart of our team. This is a team that is 20-3 and seeded in the CIF playoffs. He struck out four, gave up one hit, and didnít walk anyone. It was his best outing in more than a year! Not only is he a more effective pitcher, but he has started to believe that he can pitch competitively again. Obviously, he has a lot of work to do, but at least he can start to believe it is possible again. Thank you SO much!"
"Just some quick comments regarding the weekend NPA camp. The first word that comes to mind is AWESOME! Really, it was more than i hoped it would be. My son, Zach, hasn't stopped talking about it and I'm blown away at how quick Tom has been able to put him back in command on the hill with proper pitching mechanics and form. We'll definitely be back!"
"My son and I decided to attend an NPA camp in San Diego. It is without question the best baseball decision we have ever made. Tom and the NPA staff made such a dramatic change in my sons pitching mechanics and throwing technique that I now consider myself an "NPA Disciple." I help coach one of the teams my son plays on, and everyone is using the techniques that we learned in San Diego."
"The Mark Prior Pitching Camp was absolutely the best camp my family has ever attended. Your expertise is unmatched. We want to say "Thank You" to you, your staff and all of the lecturers who contributed. There was a wealth of information offered for the improvement of young pitchers both physically and mentally."
"It was absolutely amazing to hear my son, Andy, come home after the final day of the Mark Prior camp and proclaim "These last 5 days at the camp Dad were a life changing experience for me."
The NPA staff nailed it! After my many years in the sales, sports and motivation arenas you combined the right formula to help create true leaders. And most importantly instilling self confidence to believe in themselves. Andy now sees a clear path to success thru hard work and self motivation no matter what he pursues. The light went on!
Thanks from a proud Dad!"
