Testing top players allows us to determine what each level of play can expect. The skill of a hitter is measured the same with the Hitter Handicap no matter the hitters age or level. The variance is in how hard or how much velocity is being created.
Colleges are starting to use the Hitter Handicap to measure a hitters capacity and to compare with players on their existing rosters. This is a great way to see how players match up and determine value that would be provided to a college program.
A good approach is a good result as shown here with this 11U player. The Hitter Handicap proves the value received after 75 days of instruction. The Athlete Management System allows the capture of every test and every aspect of development so you can quantify the value of the programming being offered. In this case the Hitter doubled his efficiency while hitting every ball over 6 MPH harder. Indisputable support as to where this hitter started and where they are at this time frame.
The Hitter Handicap is used at the highest levels to assess a hitters skill however, it is best used at the younger ages to assist in influencing the development of an Hitter. The ability to calibrate the swing early and understand the correct approach will always be easier to implement than someone who has already been practicing bad habits or a poor approach for a longer period of time. The Hitter Handicap is an educational application that tactfully provides the necessary details to the Hitter for them to break down the hitting skill.
