P3 Logo

Premier Pitching and Performance was founded by Brian DeLunas and Josh Kesel with the goal of continuing to provide the highest level of baseball pitching instruction to the Midwest. Whether you are a young pitcher trying to start out on the right foot or the professional pitcher preparing to make the next jump, you can feel confident that P3 is your training source to get your there!

Hanging Out at P3 in St. Louis, Missouri.

For the last 6 months I have had the pleasure to observe one of the Midwest’s Best Pitching Instructors and Pitching Academies.

Brian and Josh has given me an all access pass to their philosophy, complete pitcher assessments and training methods.

After 20+ years of privately training and consulting with pitchers from all over the US and Puerto Rico, I think I have finally found a Pitching Only Academy that gets what it truly takes to train and develop the complete pitcher.

The culture that Brian and Josh have developed is second to none when it comes to assessing and creating unique pitching plans & training programs for each pitching client’s specific needs.

Their ability to filter out the “traditional garbage” that most young pitchers are growing up with and create a plan around each pitcher’s natural instincts is what I have found the most interesting.  There’s no cookie-cutter process that each pitcher does or goes through.

The relationships and trust that they build with their clients is real and I believe that what truly sets them apart.

With that being said I couldn’t be more excited to being given the opportunity to be a part the P3 team.

Together we have launched our first…

P3- S.T.A.R.T.T. Day 1 Program

The Day 1 program will have 10 to 15 of P3’s 2016 D-1 Commits and 2017 D-1 Recruits and take them through the S.T.A.R.T.T. Pitching 3 Phase Mental, Emotional and Unique Pitching Skills Assessments.

Through the weekly classroom time and 2-3 days a week on the turf will we assess and teach each pitcher how to handle the Day 1 mental, emotional and physical transition from High School to College Baseball or their Day 1 transition from High School or College to Professional Baseball.

We will go deep and have conversations with each pitcher that most instructors would be afraid to have.

We believe and so far with great feedback from our pitchers and parents that we can help these pitchers identify the mental and emotional roadblocks that keep a lot of young pitchers from developing out their unique pitching skills & abilities.

By training the mental, emotional and physical all at the same time we can help these young pitchers sync together all 3 critical aspects of becoming an elite level pitcher.

Every pitcher gets a chance to develop their unique pitching skills so that their confidence is based on the real expectations of what’s possible for them to do, not wishful thinking or some coach’s unrealistic expectations.

Right now we are in the middle of our first 2016 class and getting ready to kick-off the 2017 class in December.

The culture and atmosphere that you’ll find at P3 is truly what sets them apart.  The College and Pro Players that return every year to stay in shape and get ready for the next season speaks volumes about the respect they have for the whole P3 family.

That’s why couldn’t be more fired up to partner up and offer the whole S.T.A.R.T.T. Pitching Program exclusively at P3.

P3 is the perfect partner because they want to build a real relationship with each pitcher, not a temporary financial relationship.

I hate the pitching lesson business model and mentality and so does Brian & Josh.

Every pitcher needs a program that assesses, measures, tests, tracks and tweaks as needed specifically what they need, not some one-size-fits-all system that will not work for most pitchers.

Right now were excited the first 2 S.T.A.R.T.T. Pitching classes are full and we look forward to expanding in the near future.

So with that I’m no longer accepting any private clients.

Brian, Josh and I are going to run everything through P3 in ST. Louis for now, but if there are Pitching Instructors and Academies that are interested in implementing the P3-S.T.A.R.T.T. program at your facility you can contact me or Brian to see if you would be a good fit.

A new S.T.A.R.T.T…

I have been so blessed with some awesome clients and parents that I have gotten to meet and help.  I know partnering with P3 will only give me the opportunity to reach more young pitchers and help them chase their dream.

The only goal I have is to make a positive impact each young person as a pitcher and as a man. And now that opportunity has been expanded in a way that I can only give God the glory for.

If we haven’t met or haven’t talked, I hope we do soon. And as always if there is anything I can do to help please let me know.

And if you’re in the STL anytime soon gives us a call, come by and check out the P3 facilities. They truly are second to none.

Thank You All and God Bless,

Darrell
