PFP FUTURES PROGRAM INFORMATION
What is the Futures Program?
The Futures Program is a 10-week condensed replica of the highly successful PFP Varsity School. This program will be built and implemented by Denise Davis. The powerful and dynamic team of coaches at PFP lends to an intense and high-energy learning environment. Just like the Varsity program, great levels of energy and focus will be given to the students of this program. This 10 week FUTURES Program will run an abbreviated yet parallel curriculum to the Varsity Program.
The FUTURES Program is a select program, with students that are chosen through an application process by Denise Davis. Students will be surrounded by high level athletes with similar work ethics and goals. The program is constructed by Denise and implemented by Denise and a team of other highly qualified instructors. The curriculum is developed to fully train the pitchers and catchers with the presentation of physical and mental strength and sports performance training, mechanics enhancement, timing work, speed measurements, plate strategy, alternate pitches, catching and hitting. The program will also include LIVE PITCHING/HITTING competition in the inner squad challenge.
This program will be on the cutting edge of training and development. The students will be constantly monitored and well- cared for. Pitchers train for 2 hours and catchers for 2.5 hours each week.
