BEST PITCHING CAMP IN THE METRO-PLEX

Over 400 pitchers have experienced the Pitching Velocity Boot Camps in the past 7 years!
Many have gained 3-4 mph in JUST 6 weeks!
Some pitchers have seen a 7+ miles per hour improvement!!! We are happy to announce that 90% of all our boot campers in 2011-2012 had an increase in top and average velocity. There will not be another Velocity Training Program in the DFW area that compares to what this camp will do for you as a pitcher.

 

A series of 4 to 6-week intense training programs for pitchers and non pitchers who want to take their game to the next level! 
Instead of the typical clinic or camp that fades as soon as it is over... this on-going off-season boot camp gives the pitching athlete regular, consistent exposure to the best and the latest information. This is the most intense program for any pitcher to learn how to repeat his delivery, while increasing arm strength. Pitchers will work closely with instructors who are positive, knowledgeable and BELIEVE that every athlete can approach their genetic potential with the right information, the right training and the right work ethic. You get what you put into this camp, like many before that have moved on to the college/professional ranks after attending our boot camp.

ONLY 18 SPOTS AVAILABLE PER CAMP!!!

Testimonials

"Last year worked miracles!! Alex my incoming freshman actually hit 90mph this summer and won the Perfect Game World Series MVP Pitcher last week!!  They won the championship in Ft. Myers FL with a 7 inning no hitter pitching performance. Your camp is the best I've ever seen!"

Thanks Brad Schreff

 

This is Jon Ivey, Tyler Ivey’s father. I wanted to update you on his freshman season at Heath HS so far. Tyler has 5 varsity starts and is 2-2. In his two loses he was great in one and poor in one. Both wins were quality and he went deep in the game. He beat Frisco Wakeland Saturday. The Dr. Pepper Ballpark had a radar on Tyler. The radar registered the velocity on the scoreboard each pitch. Tyler hit 88 and still was at 85+ in the 6th inning. Just thought you would want an update. I tell anyone who will listen about you guys. Remarkable camp"

"Both of my sons have attended Performance Edge Velocity Boot Camps for two years.  However, this year's program (with significant enhancements) was outstanding.  The instructors were knowledgeable and motivating.  Paul Ahearne may be one of the best baseball instructors in the metroplex.  Whether your son is a pitcher looking for more velocity or just a player preparing for the upcoming season you will be more than pleased with the results and improvement."  -Chuck 

"Thanks to the guys at The Edge Baseball Training Center in Garland, my son has taken his baseball game to another level.  This newly attained level of pitching skills has earned my son the dream of extending his baseball playing days beyond high school and onto play at a Texas Junior College.
In the early fall of 2008, Blake was an average High School pitcher throwing a (82-84 MPH) fastball, curve ball and changeup.  A friend of his invited him to sign-up for an intense Velocity Boot Camp that was to take place at the Edge facility in Garland.  Although it was a lot of hard work it paid off.  Blake's fastball increased from the 82-84 MPH range up to the 87-89 MPH range.  It was at this time, that the same friend that introduced him to the Edge also invited him to a tryout in San Antonio, Texas in front of College and Professional scouts.
Blake was a walk up the day of the camp and was added to the end of the list of pitchers that were to throw that day.  After a long day for the scouts watching pitcher after pitcher, it was Blake's 3 minutes to throw in front of the scouts.  He threw and was a consistent 88-89 MPH on his fastball which made him the 2nd hardest thrower at the tryout.
Within a week from the camp, Blake had a great JUCO scholarship offer from Weatherford College.  Weatherford College is one of the top JUCO baseball programs in the state of Texas where JUCO baseball is second to none.
In addition, Blake played the summer of 2009 on the Edge Scout Team.  This team was coached by Paul Ahearne and Chris Flanagan.  During the summer, on this team, after 2 starts on the mound, Coach Flanagan mentioned to Blake that he was consistently getting two strikes on the batters but was having difficulty putting them away.  This is when Flanagan taught Blake to throw a slider.  This slider has given Blake the strikeout pitch that he needed to go along with the fastball."
 
"Many thanks to Edge Team for taking my sons game to a higher level that will enable him to continue his dream of playing baseball at the College level."
 
Many Thanks 
Mike Webster


"The Boot Camp has greatly increased Matthew's strength, endurance, and has made his mechanics rock solid. Since attending the Boot Camp for each of the last three years, he has been injury free." John


"We have attended the edge's pitching velocity camp for the past three years. Rick came in the first year and his velocity was 75mph ( he was 15) improved to 78 in the first session. The next year he came in throwing 81 improved to 85. this year came in throwing 89 and improved to 91. These improvements were all in one session or 12- 2 hours workouts. 
Rick was a senior catcher at Midlothian high school last season, but pitches for the Titans in the summer and loves the camp and states that his arm does not get sore throughout the high school and summer seasons!--currently attending his second camp this winter and would like to get to 93-94  before Christmas, --Rick is currently attending Howard junior college on a  two year full ride scholarship as a catcher. If you work hard the camp will give you what you put into it and improvements will come." Mr. Stover
 

"We have really appreciated the Pitching & Velocity Boot camps over the years. This was our 4th in a row and now that Collin is going into
high school we feel it is the most important. The instruction provided in the camp has allowed him to be way ahead of the curve as far as strength,
technique and most importantly conditioning. The results speak for themselves. In each camp he has always increased his velocity.
But most important to us the fact that the camps direct focus on the correct posture when delivering the ball. We feel that the end result
is Collin has been able to pitch allot of innings over the years at a high competitive level with no arm problems what so ever.
 
"Lisa & I attribute that directly to the intense individual instruction that is offered during lessons and the Pitching & Velocity boot camps."
 
"In today's world of select baseball, there are many things out there that a parent might feel compelled to try with his or her child, most of them
when done provide no real value. Your Pitching & Velocity boot camps do not fall into that category."
 
"Thank you and all the coaches for their quality time and commitment to make all of the kids better."
 
Tim & Lisa Sherrod
 
 
 
Make sure you register early. This camp sells out every year and has proven to be a great success for all those looking to increase velocity and prevent injury in young arms.
 
Sincerely,
 
Paul Ahearne
