Understanding how a hitter moves is a prerequisite for effective coaching, training and treatment. Rather than guess what they do, we believe you should assess what they do.

OnBaseU’s Hitting Level 1 Certification teaches baseball coaches, softball coaches, fitness experts and medical professionals how to evaluate a hitter for physical limitations which can inhibit swing efficiency, durability and, ultimately, enjoyment of the game.

Students learn to quickly evaluate a player’s physical capabilities using the OnBaseU Hitting Level 1 screen and to understand how the results of that assessment are correlated with the technical elements in the player’s swing. This helps a coach, trainer, or medical professional to quickly identify the key area that can be holding a hitter back from performing their best. We call this the Body-Hitting Connection.


Level 1 Certification includes

  • Online Certification Course.
  • 1 Year of Active Certification Status for FREE.
  • The ability to attend any optional Level 1 HITTING Seminar or Webinar for FREE.

At OnBaseU, we have a very simple philosophy.
We don’t believe there is one way to swing a bat; we believe there are an infinite number of ways to swing a bat. But we do believe that there is one efficient way for everyone to swing a bat and it is based on what they can physically do.

How can you determine what a player’s body can do? 

By using the OnBaseU Hitting Level 1 assessment screen.

If a player is limited by what their body can do, they have two options:

1) Build a swing that works around their limitations;
2) Work with a coach, fitness or medical professional to improve their limitations.
