Game Time Pressure Training (GTP Training) incorporates real-game demands into training, allowing for a player to better transfer his skills from practice to a real-game situation.
In a continuing effort to revolutionize the player development industry and help more kids reach their full potential, Steve Sclafani has recently worked with the renowned Dr. James Driskell to research and author “Stressors in Youth Batting Performance” and “Game Time Pressure Training Handbook.”
Both publications have been ground breaking in showing not only how stress and pressure affect performance, but the way players can train to overcome these stressors and be more successful. In addition, Sclafani and Driskell authored “Reducing the Effects of Game Day Pressures through Stress Training” published in the Journal of Sport Psychology in Action.
That’s because we’ve learned to be successful as a hitter, components such as balance and vision are essential cornerstones. These categories are also the first thing to go when we feel the pressure of a real-game situation.
By practicing and learning how to deal with stressors such as noise, task overload, performance pressure, competitive demands and time pressure, we are allowing players to get the most out of their ability during a real game.
Now, with this FREE app, Baseball Factory brings the science and skill training that we’ve perfected to your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch so you can train at home or on the field.
