HERE'S THE PROBLEM

You work your butt off on your pitching, practice constantly & try to increase your velocity. But each month the radar stays stuck. You know you need to get strong, be more explosive & improve your mobility, but aren't sure where to start. You have nagging injuries slowing you down, but can't seem to kick them. You want to level up your strength & conditioning but don't want to hire another expensive trainer or waste your time trying to come up with your own workouts...

IMAGINE

What if... you knew exactly how to increase your velocity & be explosive in the circle?

What if… you felt confident in the gym with a clear plan to follow every week?

What if… you had the knowledge & guidance to get strong, stay healthy & prepare like an elite athlete?

...without hiring an expensive trainer, feeling lost in the gym or hating your workouts?

"I will say one thing about them that I thought was cool coming back: their strength and conditioning program has got to be awesome. When we saw Kleist take the mound on Thursday, she looks dramatically different. The amount of work that she had to put in in the weight room, and all of the reps and all of the things that she did, I think has to be tremendous. So I do believe there is a story there for their athletic department.""

Rachel Lawson
Head Coach, Kentucky Softball. Quote from Rob Moseley, GoDucks.com

"I wouldn't even be back on the field right now if it wasn't for him. It was so frustrating; I was using my body, trying to get my arm into it, and I just couldn't. I physically could not throw the ball hard — until I started working out."

Maggie Balint
Pitcher, Univ. of Oregon. Quote from Rob Moseley, GoDucks.com

A Note from Nyree White

Founder, Brickwall Softball

As a  dedicated young pitcher, I was willing to do whatever it took. But I didn’t push myself to improve the hole in my strength game, avoiding doing what I was wasn't good at. 

Back then I needed guidance and a clear plan I could buy into.

That's what my pitchers need now too and when I didn't find any S&C resource out there for pitchers that I loved, I  decided to create one.

There was one coach I trusted to build a truly elite level resource on strength and conditioning for pitchers...

Enter Coach Mark Dillon - 

Coach Dillon was instrumental in building the Oregon Softball program into a national powerhouse, training All-Americans Jess Moore, Megan Kleist, Miranda Elish,& Cheridan Hawkins

I saw each Duck pitcher become more explosive, maintain stamina late in the season and remain virtually injury free.

GAME CHANGING RESULTS

I have seen firsthand how getting pitchers in the weight room early on make a world of difference both now and down the line with velocity, injury prevention, efficient movement patterns, mindset, body awareness & mental health. 

Empowering our pitchers in the weight room will be a core pillar of our training at Brickwall moving forward and I could not be more proud to have Coach Dillon leading our program.

It’s a privilege to partner with Coach Dillon on bringing the strength & conditioning approach used at the highest level to our pitchers at Brickwall Softball and can’t wait to see the fruit of this program for our athletes in the circle.

BENEFITS OF STRENGTH TRAINING FOR YOUNG PITCHERS:

1. Develop higher velocity, minimize risk of injury, learn essential movement patterns

2. Develop stronger muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones

3. Improve proprioception and body awareness, mind to muscle connection, consistent habits, & inner strength

4. Improve body image, confidence, competitive mindset, and mental wellness
