Jimmy Dyson has been involved in the fastpitch game for over 23 years. One of the few pitching coaches that pitched competitve mens fastpitch (Delta Rebels, Charlies, Old Friends) coached college fastpitch (Modesto Junior College), high school (Ceres H.S.) and travel ball (Central Valley Sacrafice 18U Gold, Grapettes 16U and Cal Rock'n Fire 12U) to name just a few. Jimmy is one of the few instructors who can say he has started an 8 year old student with her first pitching lesson and in her senior year of college still working out with him! Jimmy has worked out, competed or coached with- USA Olympic coaches as well as some of the best college and high school coaches in Northern California. Jimmy has videoed the pitching motion since 1986! One of the few Fastpitch Pitching Coaches in California that uses motion capture anaylysis in his every day instruction!

Softball News Cast is scheduled to air the week of 2.16.09 I plan on interviewing Otto. He should be out the week of 2.02.09. We may have clips of high school softball from 1991-2008, Otto's Recital in 1997 and our Hall of Fame. Taking it to the next level! Online consultations with Jimmy in California and Otto in Montana at the same time!
Motion Capture Analysis over the internet will be available in the next few weeks. We will have be able to discuss with the student and parents /coaches her pitching motion...We will be able to identify flaws, improvements, check angles and compare pitching motions of the pro's or the students previous video's...It will feel like we are at the Academy except... The student and parents/coaches do not travel, they stay home! Otto maybe available for a second opinion on pitching and hitting. We will be able to call on Phil de la Porte, Steve Drewery, Terry Hoffman, Ex-students, Coaches, Counselors for their opinions if needed! I will have more information soon !
Collapse the back leg on the rise and short step on the drop? It's the time for camps and clinics. A good number of our students are going to these camps and clinics. I encourage the students to go to them. I feel it is good to hear other opinions. It seems collapsing the back leg and releasing low on the riseball and the short step or getting on top of the drop are the big questions I have been answering this winter when the students come in for their next lesson. I talked to Otto about this. He went to his personal video of Gibson and Scarborough (Texas AM ), Abbot when she was at Tennessee and Estermaira (Cal State Stanislaus) viewing them on the motion capture program. I will have video of Otto's opinion in the next few weeks. I will have proof on what the elite look like at their release points in the Academy in the next few weeks.

11-02-2009 Q- Is softball changing for the better? I know one thing... Fastpitch softball is changing!!!5 years ago I did not hear of the college coaches requesting to see as many of our 9th and 10th graders- pitch in a game- ask for their pitching videos and their player bios and contact information!
Q- Do we stress mechanics or speed? What do we use in the Academy... Lets see- We have a tv, computer, camera(s), two software programs, spin tester, radar gun ETC... and we do not say "Fastball"!
HOT OFF THE PRESS!
10.12.09 Update on the Velocity Program Kevin has found some interesting findings in our first group of students in the velocity program Kevin has started the velocity program a couple of weeks ago. Contact me or go to the Rainbow Fields web site. Click on the Academy and find the agility balance section at the bottom of the page or click on Kevin McCarthy. Good Luck! I met with Kevin yesterday (Thursday). He is getting together with John and putting the final touches on the Fastpitch Pitching Program! I am in touch with the U of Great Falls Head Coach Gary Ehnes and Pitching Coach Joey Ehnes on the progress of the pitchers and position players. We will be able to use their data along with ours and... I am talking to another college to see if they are interested! Missy Corral and I tested the phase II of the velocity program last Wednesday night before John and Kevin flew out to Great Falls. If I would have used this program when I pitched I know it would have helped me go to the next level! The pitching program is exciting! Like I said below I will keep everyone up to date on the velocity program. I have met with John and Kevin twice at John place of work. John showed me the DVD that Kevin and John shot at Rainbow that night they were in. It is awesome. Some of you have seen Kevin and myself experimenting and doing the movements and drills... A few students have tried a few of the movements and we have asked Phil for his input! I plan on putting together more info as John and Kevin fill me in! I will have it here and on our Inside the Circle show! This is one of the most common questions I have to answer! We are committed to offering a state of the art Fastpitch Pitching Velocity Program soon! If you were in the Academy last Tues 8.04.09 you noticed John and Kevin changing the tubing around simulating the pitching motion, observing and videoing Etc. I will keep you posted! A Great Honor! Jimmy, I have been around a lot of pitching coaches men, women,college, old pro men's from Mexico to Canada and you rank right at the top with any of them if not in front. Keep doing what you're doing because you are most assuredly going in a positive efficient coaching direction but you already know that by some of the results from your long term students. I cannot thank you enough for your time and teachable moments which we are constantly looking for. This is the most excited I have seen my daughter in her young coaching career! You have really sparked some energy and motivation! You have a cabin on the Missouri River with blue ribbon fishing at your disposal any day any time. Gary Ehnes Head Women's Softball Coach University of Great Falls I hope Gary does not get mad at me for posting this. I was honored to have the U of Great Falls coaches down to the academy and my house on 7.31 and 8.01. Gary, Joey and Pat know the game. When I read the e-mail I went Wow! Anyone that has "El Paso" by Marty Robbins on their call waiting has to be cool! Thanks Gary for the e-mail.

Speed of the pitch
Pitching motion analysis with the ability to use voice over, drawing tools and burn it to a DVD for the student
Control of the pitch
Data on speed, spin, control for individual age group(s)- Etc.
Check out Steve Drewery's review of the "spinning the ball test" on our Softball News Cast in the next few weeks.
Is High School Softball as good as it was in 1992? The funny thing is that I have been asked this question lately. Is softball as good as it was 10 years ago? It is fun to debate that question about 10 years ago. But the past day or so I have been digging up some old softball videos. WOW! I will have some videos of the power-house high school softball teams in action in the 91-93 era at the academy. I may put a little clip up here on the site as well. parents and students can answer themselves.
Cool Stuff in 2009! Advanced Velocity, Control and Spin Training will be available soon!
Why the controversy ? The big controversy in hitting is Ted Williams (rotational theories) and Charlie Lau (weight shift or linear theories). In fastpitch softball pitching , the controversy is - "no hips" (keep the hips back) or "close the hips" (hips rotate) and "get on top of a pitch" or "lean back on a pitch". In the next few days we will have a variety of pitchers pitching on video clips. We will show how much the hip rotation is used or not used and the leaning back or getting on top. We will show what really is happening. We will have demonstrations using the elite softball pitchers! I will have dvd's made up that can be watched at the Academy at Rainbow Fields.
Can the Eye see as good as a Camera? Does Motion Capture Analysis help the student? Can videoing help the student correct flaws in the pitching motion? Can videoing help an average pitcher become above average? Click on the motion capture button in the next few days to see more proof! I will have photo's at the Academy (on the wall) that will show the progress of a number of students with different problems in their pitching motion - and the dramatic improvement with the use of Right View Pro and Motion Pro analysis over time.
If you would like to see if we can take a beginning student- work with them all the way into their college days, We have proof! - click on our General Information page, scroll down below the general information and click on the names of the students you would like to view. I will have a Marissa Drewery at 10 and 17 in the next few days! I will try to have 5-6 more beginning videos soon!
Click on the movie button below to laugh at Mandy and Melaina's blooper's... Steve Drewery edited the bloopers after he made their college video! I hear we will have a few new bloopers in the next few days!
