What's in HTKCY?

Hacking the Kinetic Chain – Youth is a simple, year-round program for developing a young pitcher. But it also provides a comprehensive outline of why we recommend what we do. The year-round guidance helps parents formulate a plan for an off-season, what to do in-season and when to rest.
