Arm Care 2021

August 30, 2021

In Fall 2020 Upper Deck ran our 5th Arm Care and Velocity clinic, our first time remotely. We had 9 participants across a range of ages and skill levels finish the program in its entirety. Here are the results:

How it works:

You will receive a Ball Kit containing 2lb, 1lb, 6oz, 5oz, 4oz, 2oz balls (the junior participants do not use the heavier balls), a draw string back pack and velo sock. 

Arm Care and Velo Program Certified instructor, coach Frank Fascia, along with instructor Dawson Fascia will run 9 weeks of training, three times per week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Missed sessions will need to be made up on the participants own time, and can be completed during drop-in hours at Upper Deck. The program will begin with testing on November 1, 2021. 

The program will cost $300 + HST and include 27 sessions and the ball kit will cost $105 + HST for participants of the program. 

*Please note: There will only be 12 participants per hour.*

  • Initial Arm Care testing on November 1, 2021.
  • 6 weeks of training
  • Retest and program adjustments
  • 3 weeks of training
  • Final testing will be on January 2, 2022

Junior UD VeloCity (11-13 yr olds on a modified program) will consist of:

  • Initial testing on November 1, 2021
  • 6 weeks of training
  • Retest and program adjustments
  • 3 weeks of training
  • Final velocity testing will be on January 2, 2022

The program consists of weighted and underweighted ball throws and holds from knees, rocker position and “run ‘n’ guns”.  During the process we train for lower half power, upper half posture and overall balance as it pertains to executing the movements correctly
