Pine Tar Academy Clinics

Pine Tar Academy Clinics are done both on site at our facility or at one of various domes and/or gyms around the west metro.    The difference between our small group programs and clinics is not only the size of the group (small group is typically up to 5 athletes while clinics are 20 or more athletes) but clinics typically run the same time each week for a set number of weeks.

Arm health is a complex topic. 

VELO CAMP addresses key components to a healthy arm: Body strength, monitored use, proper mechanics and recovery.


Program components were developed by leaders in orthopedic medicine, the strength and fitness industry and professional baseball, from the health perspective of a maturing teenage athlete.

VELO CAMP has isolated each body function involved with throwing and replicated those movements into a series of strength, flexibility and conditioning exercises.


Developed and led by nationally certified strength & conditioning specialists, workouts are designed to strengthen functional movement and support increased velocity.

VELO CAMP has carefully designed a Long Toss throwing program to increase velocity and promote arm health using a controlled, purposeful throwing technique.


Developed by professionals with years of experience in pursuit of arm health and sustainable velocity, VELO CAMP uses a specific method of strength through Long Toss.

While each throwing motion is as unique as the person holding the ball, every player shares similar points along the throwing process that define proper mechanics.


Onsite to monitor and promote proper throwing mechanics are experienced coaches who have been trained in VELO CAMP's regimented Long Toss program.
