NFA Testing Center

The ability to evaluate talent is at the core of every decision we make as coaches and instructors.  Subjective evaluation is still critically important where the coach/instructor judges the skills/talent but, with current technology, we have access to some amazing tools that can assist in our recruiting decisions, roster decisions and decisions on playing time. 

You know, when the radar gun started being used many coaches and scouts didn't believe it was that important but over time the radar gun is now used to determine pitching velocity, change of speeds of the pitcher, arm health, throwing velocity and even exit bat velocity.

So, with this said we feel that the more information we have available to us the better off we are.  Here are the objective metrics/evaluations we include in our testing center:

METRICS

Metrics is at the foundation of what National Fastpitch Academy is about.  To know where we need to go we must first know where we are.

BLAST TECHNOLOGY

We use the Blast Technology Device to test most of our hitting metrics.

DIRECTORIES

We offer or will offer many types of Databases of which many are metrics driven.

INDIVIDUAL METRICS SESSION

If you need your metrics updated or you have never had your metrics tested we can help you with that. 

  • We can test you on over 10 metrics from bat velocity to pitching velocity.  (See Metrics for Details)

  • Metrics is a factor in recruiting and will continue to be more of a factor.

  • Other reasons Metrics are important.

  • Your metrics will be added to your Profile and the Directory.

  • The session shouldn't take but 15-20 minutes but plan on 30 minutes.

  • The cost is $20.00 for one Session but $45.00 for Three Sessions that can be used throughout the calendar year.  

  • Payment will be due at the end of the first session.

  • You can schedule your Metrics only session here

GROUP METRICS SESSIONS

HITTING METRICS ONLY!

This is a great way to get tested and not cost as much as the individual session but you will be tested on the exact same metrics.  

The sessions will be conducted at Legends on the following Dates and Times:

Sunday's 4:30pm - 5:00pm  

Sunday's 5:00pm - 5:30pm

Tuesday's 6:30pm - 7:00pm

Each session will last 30 minutes with each individual taking about 10 minutes.  Please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to receive instruction and to check-in.

The hitters will hit in order of arrival on a first-come-first-serve basis and then will be able to leave when finished.

It is recommended you get tested at least once every 6 weeks.  Once a month might be a little too often and 8 weeks is a bit too long to wait as there may be issues with your swing you are not aware that the metrics can determine.

If you want to purchase a package of four sessions for $45.00 you will get one free you can do that here (Buy Now Button) or you can pay for the four sessions at the initial session.

TEAM METRICS SESSION

Our Team Metrics is simply a session with your team running your players through their metrics evaluations.

  • At least four players must participate to qualify for a Team Metrics Session and no more than 12 players.

  • The cost is $80.00 for the team session.  (So, if 8 players participate it would be $10.00 per player)
