What Makes The MaxOne/NLCA App Different?

  • Follow a college-style training session from your phone or tablet
  • Receive content improving all catching skills: Flexibility, footwork, agility, strength, leadership
  • Acquire feedback through video analysis and chat features on the app
  • Clear instruction on how to perform drills properly, why, and movements catchers want to avoid
  • Ability to share video with NLCA instructors and purchase customized video analysis

Catchers play the most important defensive position on the field, yet are the most under-coached.

– Next Level Catching Academy

That’s why we created a systematic training program to develop catchers, because we believe catchers deserve access to high-level training. Now, you can train anytime, anywhere with the MaxOne/Next Level app based training program.

We know catchers burn to confidently perform and separate themselves from their competition. With over a decade of experience hosting year-round training events, NLCA has helped develop hundreds of varsity, college and professional catchers. The time has come to extend our training to catchers that may not have the means to train with us in-person in Southern California and after many requests, we have brought our catching camps to directly to you.

So, what do you get?

  • Eight 40-min programmed workouts each month
  • Flexibility to train independently or with your teammates or coach, during, before or after practices
  • 6+ hours of systematic lessons a month, with explanatory video demonstrations
  • 1-hour zoom sessions per month where our catching community is built
  • Access to a catching community with the shared goal of applicable knowledge
  • NLCA’s best teaching practices and over 200 drills that are proven to be difference-makers

Training Tools Needed:

This training program will systematically build skills and improve the overall catching experience of our catchers. Many of these drills can be done with minimal training tools, however, we have included a list of suggested training tools that will match and enhance the training videos. Most of these tools are directly connected to improving receiving skills and will challenge the mind-body connection to increase muscle memory. Some of these tools will also assist the strengthening of catcher-specific movements including arm-strength.
