What Does Rip City Offer?
Rip City is a professional training facility committed to the development of our athletes. Providing unparalleled extensive training knowledge, professional playing experience, medical expertise, along with cutting edge technology. Experience, knowledge, routine, and mental approach, set the environment for youth, high school, collegiate and professional level.
Our programs focus on the needs of every athlete for long term success not short-term results. Athletes begin with a thorough assessment which includes a review of the athlete's history, movement and mobility. The assessment provides valuable insight into how we need to train allowing us to build a program that works for the athlete's individual strength and imbalances.
The difference in professional sports and amateur sports is routine...In order to guarantee we are working with a purpose, and creating a plan for success, our assessment is recommended for all first-time athletes. We will formulate a plan of progression, simple to advanced, and evaluate baseline knowledge, strength, and ability in order to get the most out of your time, and effort. Athlete assessments are the beginning of the training cycle. We are now a 100% technology-based training facility. The player, trainer, coaches and parents all need to understand the "entire athlete", create a plan, set goals and parent/player expectations. View all assessment options on our site or contact us for more information.
One on one time is a vital component to the development of an athletes progression, and the best way to optimize mechanics. The goal is to help your body "feel" what its like to throw, swing, and field efficiently while understanding the mechanical chain, and how each movement creates momentum for the next. Rip City instructors will blend video, visual, and demonstration learning techniques to relate information to the different ways student-athletes learn.
Group instruction is a great way to create a different learning environment. It promotes competition, keeps athletes focused while maintaining the needed workload.
Track your progress with metrics. Utilized in individual or group lessons and team assessments. Our technology for both hitting and pitching will allow athletes to track velocity, launch angle, carry distance, bat speed, bat path/angle of attack, pitch velocity, break, spin, axis tilt, and more.
