Baseball Players (usually age 14+) - Carol Stream, IL

Topics Covered

  • Basic discussion of traditional speed training mechanics and concepts... and what does and doesn't transfer over to the baseball world.

  • Thorough talk on the 60 yard dash test itself so you'll know how to prepare for (but not cheat) each assessment.  Learn how to put the controllable variables in your favor.

    • Specifically focusing on the differences between:

      • Traditional Lasers vs Stopwatch vs Handheld Laser vs New "In-beam" Lasers.

      • Very deep dive on the different types of BASEBALL STARTS as they relate to the various timing methods... possibly gain (or lose) .3 tenths before even taking a step!​​

  • Discuss the baseball starts as they pertain to IN-GAME SPEED WHEN STEALING 2B.​

  • Basic MENTAL SKILLS discussion in order to improve reaction time and get good jumps... however, this will help you tremendously as a hitter as well!


  • Discuss possible changes coming to the 60... 3.25 Test.

  • Learn what you should be doing in the weeks before (and day of) a showcase so that your mind and body are prepared. 

However, please understand

This is a consult... NOT a sprinting and form session.

To improve a 60 and other types of baseball speed, things are FIRST info based, AND THEN training & form based.

Yes, I can eventually work with you on form, but you must first understand what to do depending on the situation...

Traditional Laser 60

Stopwatch 60

Handheld Laser 60

In-Beam Laser 60


Stealing with Big Lead

Stealing with Short Lead

etc, etc, etc.

This is why I created a 60 Yard Dash and Baseball Speed Online Video Course...

and I actually recommend it over this live consultation.

  • Why I believe the online course makes more sense than the live session when first starting out.

  • My role as to how I usually fit into a players' baseball speed journey.

  • What topics that I do (and don't) coach on.
