Elite Pitching
Starting May 1st, Elite Pitching will now be under the Elite Pitching Development Program (EPDP) and will start to offer group classes, as well as private lessons. Elite Pitching and Elite Athletic Performance are committed to providing the best instruction to improve the pitching motion by complimenting group and individual sessions with our performance classes that are designed to enhance body awareness, dynamic movements and core activation.

Athletes must be enrolled in a monthy EPDP program before being able to schedule private lessons with Coach Reinsel or Coach Knettel.

Elite Pitching Development Program memberships can be purchased on the Elite store or by contacting elitebaseballinfo@gmail.com and providing billing info for monthly subscriptions.

Ages 8u-18u
All appointments must be scheduled online by clicking above on "Elite Pitching". All Elite Pitching sessions are group-based with individual programs that are customized for each player. Pitching members will also have the ability to sign up for Elite Athletic Performance classes during the week.

Sessions will be 45-60 minutes in duration. Players will go through a full warmup and recovery during each session.

Bullpens sessions will be recorded using Pitch Cast to track pitches and a compilation of bullpen graphs, notes, and pitch sequences will be distributed upon request when applicable.

Elite Pitching sessions aim to improve physical mechanics, strengthen mental focus, educate on proper arm care, and challenge each player to give maximum effort each time they have the ball. With over 6 years of pitching lessons, Ryan Reinsel continues to provide and strives to teach how to win on and off the field as a player and teammate. Combining training methods used by Driveline Baseball, Jaeger Sports, The Texas Baseball Ranch, etc. Ryan continues to learn new ways to help youth pitchers succeed on the bump. Players will learn about grips, stretches, mechanics, pitches, arm care and more through 1:1 instruction using video to slow down the most explosive motion in sports. Through these lessons pitchers will also learn about perseverance, attitude, integrity, humility, and how crucial the mental side of pitching is to becoming an elite pitcher. Players will not learn about curve balls until they are in high school and can shave (see Dr. James Andrews on this). Lastly, the goal of each session is to work hard, get better, and HAVE FUN.

Players will be exposed to state of the art facilities at UC Irvine and Santa Ana, as well as local Irvine fields. We will only take on players who are serious about developing their pitching skills and who are willing to learn the skills and traits necessary to compete at the next level.

Client Service Agreement Term:
The term of this Agreement shall be on a month to month basis until the client chooses to cancel or pause their membership.

Cancellation & Pause Policy:
If a player is injured, we allow the the client to pause their membership until they are able to attend sessions.

Make up Policy:
If a client misses a session, feel free to make it up at another time during the week or the week following. We want players to attend their sessions to develop their skills and relationships with our staff. We ask, please do not make a habit of signing up and then missing class, it takes away a spot for another student that can attend that session. Failure to cancel pitching sessions without a 12 hour notice will result in the session being counted.

Parent Expectations:
We expect parents to not interfere with our training sessions. Trying to communicate with players during their workout is unacceptable. You are paying us for a service, please allow our staff to do their job. Parents will be required to stay out of the cage area and the line of sight. If a parent starts to hover or creep to close they will be kindly asked to leave the cage area.

Monthly memberships and lesson packages are non-refundable.
Elite Athletic Performance
Elite Athletic Performance, the newest branch of Elite Baseball, is a training program for athletes looking to make a commitment to improving on field performance and long term health.Partnered with Elite Pitching, Elite Athletic Performance offers its members the opportunity to make improvements to their game. In EAP, athletes will experience a competitive and energetic atmosphere designed to maximize athletic ability. Our approach to training is a complete focus of body awareness with dynamic movements and core activation.

Prior to the start of training, each athlete will be assessed to determine areas of strength and areas for improvement. With a background in athletic performance, EAP's lead trainer Zak Knettel graduated from the University of Akron with a B.S. in Athletic Training while pitching for the Universities Division I baseball program.

This partnership with Elite Pitching is designed to compliment each other by allowing athletes the opportunity to not only improve pitching motion and proper arm care, but now be challenged with over all body care and athletic ability to become more dominant on the field.
