Presentation1.jpg



Veteran High school program

We would like to invite current high school players (‘19-22) who have previously taken a course with Protect the Plate to join us for our 6-week summer program! Classes will meet once per week for 90 minutes and will include a full body warm-up, throwing protocols and skill development. We will also continue collecting data in order to tailor to an individual’s needs as well as using video extensively for learning and feedback.

*NEW: Additionally, players in this program now have the option to train with us a second night during the week! It is completely optional, but players are welcome to attend the College Course at their location of choice in addition to their regularly scheduled class. The purpose of this option is three-fold: 1) it provides an additional opportunity during the week to train with PTP; 2) it allows for high school players to interact with incoming freshman in the PTPrep Course as well as to train alongside current collegiate players; 3) it gives players time to focus on and attend to their individual needs and skills sets. Please note: Players must be able to attend their regularly scheduled class every week as a first priority. This optional class is not to replace their regularly scheduled class, but should be viewed as additional training opportunity.



PTPrep program

We would like to invite incoming high school first years (2023s) who have previously taken a course with Protect the Plate to join us for our 6-week PTPrep summer program! Classes will meet once per week for 90 minutes and will include a full body warm-up, throwing protocols and skill development. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for players to interact with current high school players in order to discuss tips and tricks for navigating the high school landscape. From a training perspective, our goal is to prepare players for the demands of a faster game. From a personal perspective, our goal is to provide players with a community that has been in their shoes and can offer sound advice about how to navigate the complexities of high school!



College program

We would like to invite current college catchers to train with us in our 6-week College summer program! Classes will meet once per week for 90 minutes and will include a full body warm-up, throwing protocols and skill development. Players will be surrounded by other collegiate catchers who have similar ambitions, work ethic, and determination. Additionally, there will be many opportunities throughout this course for players to be in a mentoring role for current high school players who are interested in competing at the collegiate level.

*NEW: To kick off and get pumped about our 6-week training program, we will be hosting an additional session at the headquarters of HitTrax on Tuesday, June 25 from 6-8pm. The purpose of this session is to gather data [overhand throw velocity, release time, pop time, etc.] on each player using the Catcher Module on the HitTrax system. The information and data gathered from this session will serve as a baseline, allowing us to tailor the training sessions to the needs of every individual player.

Important notes

Protect the Plate began as a way to use my passion and knowledge in order to make means work financially as a coach, so I understand economic hardship. If the cost of registration is the reason your daughter can not attend a training session, please reach out to Jo and we will find a way to make it work. My job is to teach, grow, and inspire the next generation of softball players, and I do not want financial reasons to come in the way of your daughter being able to have this experience.
