The Apex Pitching Program™ is the flagship program at The Texas Pitching Institute. A customized, 8-week program that is built to address the individual's weaknesses and enhance their strengths. The focus of the program is not only to build a more dynamic, explosive and healthier pitcher, but to also ACTUALLY translate that onto the mound and into the game.
The Apex Pitching Program™ uses baseballs and weighted balls in maximum and submaximal effort throwing drills, along with multiple dynamic warm ups, lots of arm care protocols, pitcher specific strength and conditioning and recovery initiatives, as well as measurable command challenges and pitch development, to train pitchers who succeed at the next level.
Each individual is unique and has different strengths and weaknesses. The Apex Pitching Program™ is designed to be customized to the individual and as they change, so does the program.
At the beginning of the 8-week program, each individual will be put through a series of tests, measurements and video analysis to create the customized plan for the rest of the program, as well as to create a baseline of where the individual is starting. At the end of the program, the individual will go through the same tests, measurements and video analysis to determine where and how much improvement took place. With this information, the individual will be able to use the Apex Ladder System™.
What makes The Apex Pitching Program™ so unique is not only the cutting edge training information and strategies, but also the Apex Ladder System™ and Apex Wristband System™. These two systems, working together, provide a clear understanding of exactly where the individual is currently performing at, while at the same time, creating a strong desire to push themselves to the next level and ultimately to becoming an Apex Predator™.

What Is The Apex Pitching Program™?
The throwing protocols consists of velocity development, blending and recovery days. We incorporate weighted balls, corrective throwing drills, mound work and flat ground work.
Strength & Conditioning
An incorporation of free weights and explosive burst, the program focuses on the 4-planes of movement, so everything is designed for the pitcher and the pitching movements in mind.
These exercises and stretches are designed to help the body adjust to perform in a more balanced and functional way to throw a baseball through improved stability and/or mobility.
The Apex Ladder System™
Wristbands To Celebrate Achievement
We are the only training facility in the United States that gives their athletes the opportunity to earn special color wristbands (kids and teens love them!), based off their present levels of ability that is determined by completing various performance tests. Do other baseball facilities offer trophies and certificates? A few, but none of them inspire their athletes by giving them full color, really cool “Apex Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends. The Apex Ladder System™ is our unique method of pitching education that you can only get here.
More importantly when our athletes have their test coming up, they practice more, their parents are proud, their instructors are proud, and everybody wins. You can only get the Apex Ladder System™ here.
