The uHIT Certification is a simple course aimed at giving you the credentials you need as a coach (or parent-coach) to be make better hitters.
One of the biggest problems hitting coaches face is this: How do I get my hitters to see the ball better? How do I get them to select better pitches? How do I get them to let bad pitches for them go by?
The answers to those questions are the basis of the uHIT app for better zone and pitch recognition skills. And the uHIT Certification is a guide for coaches to learn the science behind uHIT in simple, easy terms — in softball terms.
Below, we look at just a few coaches who got their uHIT Certification and how it helped their hitters.
Hitting Coach from Cal State Fullerton (D1), Caitlin Grimes
Coach Grimes got her uHIT Certification in Fall 2020. Just after that, her Cal State Fullerton Softball hitters started uHIT Custom Training to improve their pitch selection. They raised their team OPS by +121 points using uHIT. You can learn more about those improvements from reading our forthcoming detailed post on uHIT Academy or seeing for self on Cal State’s own website (>> click here to learn more about 2019 without uHIT and >> click here to learn more about 2021 with uHIT).
Grimes learned from the uHIT Certification about how uHIT is a pitch selection tool based on the brain science of how people make quick decisions. She learned this from the uHIT Certification curriculum of articles (e.g., from the Washington Post and New York Times), as well as interviews on MLB Network (e.g., with Brian Kenny) and on the uHIT Academy with professional players like AJ Andrew (>> click here to learn more from AJ Andrews’ experience with uHIT). She was able to apply this knowledge to Cal State Fullerton Softball’s fall training and then she was able to carry it into the regular season when Spring 2021 began.
