Catching Videos

Can anyone tell me some good catching instruction videos to get? I hope to use help from the videos as well as a catching clinic to help my girls. There is very little in my area for good instruction, so we have to depend mostly on video help and asking questions.

Thanks,

Rob

I just received Catching Coaches video.

http://www.catchingcamp.com/

It is worth the money, good instruction even for beginners. There might be a couple controversial techniques like throwing hand placement, not shifting before the pitch, but he gives good explanations why. Those minor issues you can probably alter, but the bulk of information is very good.

I actually took my catchers to see Coach Weaver from NE Catching Camps and I can tell you that not only he knows what he is talking about but he's a great teacher. Being a trained educator, I recognize good instructional skills. He's been doing this for so long that he got very good at teaching it.

Catching techniques are no different than pitching or hitting techniques, there will always be differences in philosophies and how it is being taught.

I strongly recommend it.

I am in the same situation as my 13U daughter has just started catching in September. I'm trying to find drills and different ways to practice with her. I do have her attending a 3 weekend Clinic for catchers at Hofstra University. I've read all the posts here and decided to ordered the "Coaches Guide to Training Catchers DVD" last night. I will give everyone a review once I get it and watch it a few dozen time.

NYLadyCobras, got time to review the DVD yet? Very interested in what you think. Thanks.

JJ,
Don't wait, go ahead and get Catching Coach's video now - if you don't like it I'll buy it from you - I keep having a hard time getting my copy back from those I loan it to!

Search this forum and you'll find more positive feedback about it.

Absolutely get Dave Weaver's video. We've bought a couple of different ones, but his is by far the best. It's the only one I'd recommend.

Abs - now I know why I liked the catcher's receiving form in your avatar. Don't know where you are, but if Dave puts on a clinic remotely near you, it'd be well worth the trip - he's more effective in person and well received by female athletes, which can't be said about all instructors!

Green, thank you very much. :)
Actually Mr. Weaver will be here next weekend for a clinic, and my daughter can't wait. My daughters catching instructor follows Mr. Weaver's system, and it is great.

I bought this video and it is awesome. Covers every aspect of being a catcher. It's called "The New England Catching Camp - A Coach's Guide to Training Catchers". A very well spent forty bucks.
