Using HitTrax at NVBA

Baseball and Softball Athletes Develop Skills at NVBA Using HitTrax

The North Valley Baseball Academy (NVBA) features HitTrax, the first and only baseball simulator. The HitTrax system is a powerful combination of analytics and entertainment that has never before been available to indoor training facilities.

The technology delivers innovation to the baseball industry for hitters and pitchers by measuring real-time data and displaying live results for immediate feedback for any level of player. Athletes using NVBA will be able to take advantage of all the features of the system including analytics, video capture and analysis and for entertainment as well.

With HitTrax analytics players will be able to validate their strengths and quickly identify the areas that need additional work. HitTrax real-time statistics and key performance metrics such as exit ball velocity, distance, pitch speed, late break pitch, strike zone analysis, spray charts and more are tracked through the system.  The immediate feedback empowers hitters and pitchers, leading to more productive training sessions with quantitative results.

HitTrax at NVBA allows players and coaches, for the first time ever, to capture the “cause and effect” of a swing through the video capture and analysis feature.  Some of the features include high-speed video synchronized with the corresponding data, frame-by-frame playback of swings, side by side video comparisons and coaches can use the video to record instruction notes and illustrations that can be sent to the athlete.

Athletes using NVBA can use the HitTrax system for some fun as well. The HitTrax system brings the video game to real life.  The system will allow NVBA athletes to participate in a home run derby, hitting leagues, simulated baseball games and tournaments and take some swings at any major league ballpark.  The HitTrax gaming module calls balls and strikes, turns rally-killing double plays and scores the winning run on a sacrifice fly.

The coaching staff of NVBA is excited to introduce you to the HitTrax system and to use it to develop our baseball and softball athletes.  For more information about HitTrax check out their website at or stop in to NVBA and see it for yourself.
