Become a Catching Master

The catcher is a key player on defense. Some would say THE key player. That’s because the catcher is involved in nearly every play and sets the tone defensively. Yet mastering the techniques of catching can be difficult. 

In the Amber Freeman Catching Package, the three-time All-American and USA National Team alum gives you 20+ action-packed videos of catcher-specific drills, advanced catching challenges and pre-game strategy discussions designed to improve your defense.  

Topics include: 

  • Positioning your body properly to execute tagging, throwing, framing, and blocking
  • Using the “sway” technique to obtain correct body positioning
  • Getting to balls quickly using sound fundamentals and explosive reactionary drills
  • Conditioning drills to promote endurance, strength, and injury prevention
