Prime Time Catching is an expansion within Prime Time Programs and its original programs: velocity, hitting, and foundations. Brandon Justice created the program and will lead instruction in all of its programs/camps. Justice is the Catching Coach at Saginaw Valley State University and the Director of Operations at Lakeside Indoor. PTC modernizes catchers of any age to adapt to the new-age of catching while keeping old-school beliefs in mind. This includes a bulk of receiving and instinctive-based drills, along with a guarantee to improve pop times, arm strength, and blocking skills through various drills and brand new equipment.
What you will improve on: Receiving, throwing, blocking, positioning, umpire presentation, IQ of the position, and weight training for both the upper & lower body.
