The hardest part of coaching pitching is being able to tell if the lower half is engaged. With the Queen Of The Hill there is no question of whether the lower half is used or if ground force is created with the instant audible feedback with each use.
Aids in Efficient Mechanics
Proper mechanics and a directional force towards home plate is key in efficiency and ability of play for pitchers, but the hardest element to coach. Once players are able to feel how to properly activate their body, improvement follows effortlessly.
Any Age, Any Level of Player
From beginners to professionals, there is no age or ability limit on the Queen Of The Hill. Beginners will use the The Queen Of The Hill to learn proper mechanics and the engagement of the lower half, while more advanced players who have mastered these skills will challenge their abilities with a higher compression level.
Challenges to Improve
One of the most asked questions we receive is "How does the Queen Of The Hill increase velocity?" Once proper mechanics are accomplished and the lower half is engaged, players will challenge their abilities by increasing the compression force required to accomplish the goal of sounding the trainer.
Keeps Players Healthy
Every player has a threshold of the number of pitches they can preform in a certain time frame. The goal of each player is to be consistent in performance to ensure health and longevity. Utilizing the lower half to power the pitching sequence takes stress off of the upper half where the majority of pitching injuries occur.
