About Us

Focused on arm health and specificity of training, Dynamic Pitching Institute (DPI) was developed in 1995 based on principles and philosophies accrued through exposure to some of the top pitching coaches and sport study educators in the country.  The Dynamic Pitching Institute was started based on a need for a comprehensive pitching program that develops strength, improves flexibility and athleticism, as well as focuses on repeatable and efficient throwing mechanics, using the body as it was intended as efficiently as possible.
 
Since 1995, the DPI system has been utilized with 100′s of baseball pitchers of all ages and skill sets ranging from Little Leagues, High School, College and Professionals.  The Dynamic Pitching Institute believes that all pitchers have the ability to work towards the goal of attaining the elusive and sacred “90 MPH” benchmark that the baseball community has set as the benchmark for success.  More importantly, the DPI system sets out to allow students to work within a program that is educational and physically challenging to help them become the best pitcher and athlete to compete at whatever level they attain.
 
Our unique programs are for players, coaches and organizations that are committed to hard work and understand that only a high level of dedication and consistency will produce desired outcomes.  The program is not a “quick fix” approach, but rather a curriculum marked by continuous productive activities targeted towards the overall development of the student and their desire to achieve.
 
As the baseball world has followed the trend of “biomechanical analysis”, DPI provides a comprehensive training program for pitchers/athletes with the perspective of not only understanding and teaching the principles as it relates to pitching but also as an individual.  The uniqueness of the program and what sets it apart from the new “internet” or “seminar trained” pitching coaches across the country, is that the creator of DPI actually experienced and trained in these principles as a player.  DPI is not new, and has continually evolved and produced measurable and documented results for it’s students.  As a trend setter and true pioneer as not only a velocity program, but overall pitching competency program, DPI has continued to be unique.  Being able to actually relate to the student, sets DPI apart from traditional pitching instructors who did not compete utilizing the learned methods and principles in regards to the “new trends” they teach.
 
Now based in Charlotte, NC, the Dynamic Pitching Institute offers many programs for intense, dynamic training for all skill levels that maintains a sequential, progressive curriculum.
