Baseball- Welcome Back Kotter (actually James Carter that is)

Gamespeed welcomes James Carter a minor league prospect with the Dodgers organization. Some of you might get the 70’s reference  “Welcome back Kotter” tv show.

Anyway James worked with me as a highschooler out of San Ramon Valley and then while at Chabot College 2011-12. He then went on to UCSB where he was drafted by the Dodgers in 2016.

Even though he has been pitching since his tommy john recovery the remnants of inactvity have shown in his body thanks to a Functional Screen. We’ll take this opportunity to build James from the inside out and improve his endurance, durability and functional performance which should improve velocity and overall health.

Carter, 23, was picked by the Dodgers in the 21st round of the 2016 June draft out of the University of California Santa Barbara. He was born in Pomona, California and attended San Ramon Valley High School.

Following his graduation from high school, Carter registered at Chabot College in Hayward, California, playing two years with the Gladiators and helping them foster a 20-game winning streak. In June of his 2014 season he was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 28th round but chose not to sign.

Carter moved on to the University […]

Reflexx – Reaction Light Training

Hand Eye and Hand Foot coordination are crucial to athletes playing sports with balls. Soccer, football, baseball, softball, tennis, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse and hockey all require a high degree of visiual processing followed by the approriate physical response. There are only a couple ways to train for those moments:

– Team practices
– Scrimmages

Reflexx training allows us to condense the visual, mental processes and physical repsonses into reps at its most base level. It allows us to train over and over again adjusting the stimuli and response time and action. That enables us to train the exact proper athletic response and improve the time in which it occurs.

Block shots- Goalies

Hit Balls – Tennis, Baseball, Racquetball

Field Balls – Baseball, Softball

Catch Balls – Lacrosse, Football

Evade Defenders – Basetball, Football, Soccer, Lacrosse, Rugby

 

Call Gamespeed and see how we can include Reflexx training into your athletes customized training program. (925) 513-8676

Speed Training – Practice Decision Making To Improve Performance

Concord Ca, – Aaron Thigpen , Gamespeed Sports performance
Years ago I had a ball player named Johnny Ash first as a highschooler at Bishop ODowd then as a collegiate at Stanford, then as a minor leaguer (Astros). He was a solid athlete who worked hard, wasnt the most physically gifted but he put in the right work. However, Johnny was clutch, probably the most clutch hitter I’ve seen. Over his careeer I watched him be in pressure situations and come up with not just a hit but the right hit (College World Series). Was it luck? How did he do it?
He and his father Wil intently worked on scenario based hitting mentally and physically practicing a whole range of scenarios and pressure situations to elicit the proper mental and physical response at game time. In his case it wasnt luck, it was skill. 

It’s game time you scan the court or field. Teammates and opposition dot the landscape. What do you do? Can you anticipate your next move? your opponents? The mind has to process in a split second what the appropriate response needs to be. Is it luck,  instinct or purposeful training? I think its some of the latter. […]

Speed Training – Visual Recognition for Optimal Performance

Concord Ca, Aaron Thigpen Gamespeed Sports Performance

Dynamic sports like baseball, football, basketball and soccer require not just fleet feet but a fleet mind. Your ability to see and recognize competitive situations will determine your performance. Notice athletes who always seem to be in the right spot at the right time. Is this some innate ability  or is it the culmination of hours of intent practice? I think the answer is both. Visual Recognition is a skill that can be improved and honed with the proper training.

 

Steps to Visual Skill Building

  • Get a proper eye exam to identify your visual health.
  • Start with basic visual exercises to improve these abilities:
  • Focus Flexibility – The ability to change focus from a faraway object to a near one, or vice versa.
  • Peripheral Awareness – The ability to perceive what’s going on at either side of you without turning your head.
  • Dynamic Visual Acuity – The ability to see objects clearly when they are moving quickly.
  • Depth Perception – The  ability to make spatial judgments, how far away an object or person is from you.
  • Color Vision – The ability to detect different colors and shades.
  • Hand and Eye Dominance – Understanding which is your dominant eye may help an […]
