❗️Facility Feature Friday❗️Before & after pics of the sweet new renovation at Pinkman Academy in VA. Find out how it happened:
My son did a Hittrax camp and has been seeing Jeff for private hitting lessons. Jeff helped him find the right bat and has improved his swing. The trajectory of where he hits the balls was a big problem for him. My son has seen different trainers over the past several years and my son says that Pinkman Academy has really helped him the most.

The Pinkman Academy is a home for baseball and softball players who demand results from professional training and not just take batting practice or throw bullpens.

Book lessons now at The Pinkman Academy is the home of Pinkman Pitching, Catching, & Hitting. We offer year round private and group baseball and softball instruction. Owned and operated by the Pinkman Family in Loudoun County and Fairfax County Virginia, it is important to us that you feel welcomed and a part of our team. We are dedicated to personal service.

Have you heard? Pinkman Academy is now home to TWO softball pitching instructors! Help us extend a warm welcome to Coach Jess Rinehold, who is available for softball pitching lessons effective immediately.

Coach Jess played three years of softball at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before transferringto Florida Atlantic University for her final year. She graduated from FAU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, then went on to serve as Softball Graduate Assistant at Kansas Wesleyan University. Her main focus was pitching and recruiting for the university. She graduated with her MBA in 2017 and has since moved to the DC area for work.

For the next few months, you can schedule softball pitching lessons with Coach Jess at the reduced Student Teaching rate of $40 per hour. Visit to book.

Hitting on the Balance Beam

Ethan working on balance, keeping his shoulders behind his hips, and driving his knees together 🦆 The duck socks really make the video, don’t you think?

Photos from Pinkman Academy's post 02/16/2022

Congratulations to Kaidyn for her 10-strikeout shutout this past weekend! Kaidyn has been working with Coach Jordan since August 2021 and has significantly increased her speed, pitch variety, and body control - very important when you are 6' tall at only 14 years old!


Coach Jeff's Recommendations for Core & Lower Back Stability

To Everyone Who Throws a Ball (Also known as “Everyone”):

Here’s Coach Jeff showing some exercises to train core stability abdominal muscles and work on lower back stability. These are great exercises for pitchers learning to enhance the deceleration in their throwing motion.


Keeping a Strong Front Side

Here are Kieran and Coach Christian working on the front side. Kieran is practicing keeping his throwing arm in a good position at foot strike, maintaining a strong front leg to brace, as well as a good layback of the throwing hand.


Tons of big bats in the HitTrax cage this week, and we can’t wait to see what the weekend will bring! Congratulations to Lilly, Brandon, Maya, Tommy, Kayla, Kenzie, and Chance, and all those not pictured! 🔔 🔔 🔔


Grace brought a little extra mojo to her Herndon HS Softball 6am lift this morning!
🥎 😜 🔥 💪


Staying Off the Heel

Here’s Avery working on her turn and keeping her heel up by placing her back foot “toes-down” into the circle during extension.


Big cage days today for Ty and Oliver 🔥 You’ll often see them at the Academy, either hitting with Coach Jeff or working one of our many camps!

Casey, Tana, and Grady had big days in the cage. All set 🔔 PRs, with Casey cranking 91mph and 335ft with his wood bat! 😳

A lot of PRs last night at the Academy 🔔🔔🔔 Congrats to Mac and the Swanson siblings (swipe for expectation vs. reality 😂).

Congratulations to 8-year-old Theodore on a HUGE night in the HitTrax cage!! He was a little skittish at the plate when he started lessons two months ago, but with consistent hard work, he has become a .333 hitter with a .583 hard hit average. He got to ring our PR bell 🔔 four times last night for distance and velocity!


All Kids Do This!

Where’s the lie? 😂


Ryker Learning to Turn ♻️

Using creative methods to help Ryker (12) learn to build his swing from the turn ♻️ drive his heel up and knees together, and stay through the ball!

Congratulations to all the athletes currently sitting on the HitTrax 90-day Southeast Regional leaderboards for distance and exit velocity! ⚾️ 🥎 We can’t wait to see who else joins these lists as the season approaches.


Noah Reacts to the Whopping 37/37 😂

This video sounds scripted, but it wasn’t 😂 Noah couldn’t believe his eyes when he was presented with a 37”, 37 oz. Axe Bat speed trainer today. For older athletes, it can be used at its full length to challenge a quick barrel to the ball. For younger players, it can be held in the middle (similar to a PVC pipe) to force a shorter bat path.
