The TAP™ 'K' Target is an outstanding implement to help enhance throwing accuracy. The device was designed to offer training flexibility to accommodate multiple training protocols and styles. The multiple colors and shapes can be used to represent varying targets used in training regimens including Ron Wolforth's Differential Training System and Perry Husband's Effective Velocity Program.
The TAP™ 'K' Target can be a great teaching tool to learn and practice the skill of adjustment. Often pitchers must adjust to their circumstance, such as a mound that changes during a game because of weather or use, or a strike zone that is unexpected. The design of the Throwing Target accommodates adjustments, small and major.
The TAP™ 'K' Target is designed to overload the visual system during throwing drills. The visual stress, in addition to the normal physical stress encountered during throwing drills, helps prepare the athlete to deal with the fatigue caused from both stressors.
The TAP™ 'K' Target colors of red, yellow, blue, and green were selected for their high level of contrast and luminance. These bright colors attract and hold attention while providing better visibility of object and target information. The black target center reflects less light, and is embedded with a smaller 'star' target which provides a perception of depth.
The TAP™ 'K' Target is designed for use when attached to a flexible net or safety screen (sold separately) and includes the necessary bungees for attachment. The 'K' Target is a great alternative to The Pitching Pad when a cushioned surface is not needed or the Target Pad when detachable targets are not required.
The overall target size is 66"x42". The TAP™ 'K' Target was designed for, and intended to be used with, regulation and weighted baseballs/softballs as well as soft shell training balls. When attaching the target to a net all bungees should be used to evenly distribute ball impact forces. While the TAP™ 'K' Target is extremely durable, objects with sharp edges, pointed tips or excessive weight should not be thrown against the target. Instructions for use are not included. Safety Screen sold separately. Ships free when standard shipping is selected at check-out.
