Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long does it take to start throwing better with the HeadCoach?
A. Under thirty seconds. Watch this video to see how quick and easy it is to use The HeadCoach.
Q. Does HeadCoach work for right and left handed throwers?
A. Yes! The HeadCoach headband has VIA slots for both right handed and left handed throwers.
Q. So, you just put the HeadCoach on and throw? Is that it?
A. Yes! And no. Part of what makes the HeadCoach such a great training tool is the simplicity, but it must be worn correctly in order to ahcieve the best possible results. Two very inportant steps are sizing the headband properly, and choosing the correct VIA length. The HeadCoach headband should fit snug; not too tight, but defintiely not too loose, or the VIA will sag. Tension in the headband will keep the VIA in the upright position, guiding the arm into the proper throwing angle. If you are unsure about which VIA is right for you, start small, and gradually work your way up to the longest VIA.
Q. Are there different sizes for The HeadCoach?
A. No, The HeadCoach is a one-size fits all training aid. It is sized in the same way a snap-back baseball cap is adjusted. Players of all ages and sizes can use the HeadCoach.
Q. Can you miss the VIA, and still be throwing with incorrect mechanics?
A. Great question! Yes. However, if you were not happy with your throw before The HeadCoach, dropping your hand beneath the VIA will cause you more frustration than ever. One of the best things about the HeadCoach is it’s self-correcting. Our VIAs are designed to guide your hand into the perfect throwing height and angle. Dropping lower will greatly diminish velocity and accuracy, and your threat of injury will be highly increased.
Q. Will the HeadCoach force me to throw “side-arm”?
A. No! The HeadCoach Throw training system promotes gradual changes to the thrower’s mechanics. Drastic adjustments are extremely unlikely because muscle memory will not allow throwing mechanics to shift from one extreme to the other.
Q. Will the HeadCoach bother me? Won’t it feel awkward or cumbersome?
A. No! The HeadCoach weighs next to nothing(1.2oz.!). When you wear it, you can’t even tell it’s there unless your hand is hitting the VIA when you throw.
Q. What if the HeadCoach can’t fix the way I thow?
A. It will! We have seen first hand the countless examples of the incredible results from training with the HeadCoach. If you wear the HeadCoach and you follow our HeadCoach warm up and throwing routine, within 30 days you will begin to see results. If you are not completely satisfied, you can return the HeadCoach. See our Return Policy for details.
Q. Do I need to wear a hat to use the HeadCoach?
A. No. The HeadCoach headband is made from soft, pliable, yet extremely durable TPR rubber. It fits comfortably around the head, with or without a cap or visor. For extra comfort, The HeadCoach can be worn over a sweat headband.
