Fastpitch Masters Metrics Combine

Metrics Combine Blog Cover

Fastpitch Masters LCC is welcoming a new addition to our fundamental camps. Fastpitch Masters is a softball skills camp where current college coaches come and teach fundamental drills that players can use to better their game. We hold over 120 camps nationwide annually, and this year we’ve added our new Fastpitch Masters Metric Combine. We’re taking 12 athletes from the ages 13-18 from each camp to participate in a series of measured events pertaining to softball. For years college coaches have used metrics when recruiting players because it can give them a measurable look at their strengths and weaknesses. Fastpitch Masters wanted to give players a way to have their metrics recorded for college coaches by a third-party source. They’ll also receive information about the recruiting process and what coaches are looking for, along with receiving their metrics. Because Fastpitch Masters uses current college coaches, we give our metrics camp participants to opportunity to have their metrics sent out to all the coaches we work with nationwide.

Fastpitch Masters tests over the following skills:
20 Yard Dash
Agility Shuttle
Overhand Throw
Ball to Glove Exit Speed
Bat Speed
Attack Angle
Vertical Bat Angle
Time to Contact
Peak Hand Speed
Exit Velocity

Many of these hitting events are measured through Blast Motion. Blast Motion is a piece of technology that records the analytics in a softball swing regarding speed, power, and bat plane. These numbers can be compared to national averages, which will be included with the metrics score sheet.
