What is HitTrax?

Manager Details

  • Sign up your team for a 30 minute time slot on April 7th or April 14th at MVP Sports Academy (140 Oakwood Rd, Lake Zurich)

  • The 30 minutes prior to your time slot, the kids can warm up with MVP staff on hitting.

    • Example: if you sign up for a 1pm slot, have the team be there ready to warm up at 12:30pm.

  • When your time in the HitTrax tunnel arrives, players’ HitTrax accounts will be called up by MVP staff.

    • Batters can pick their favorite MLB team’s stadium to hit in.

  • When a batter enters the tunnel, a coach or adult will front toss to the batters.

  • Each batter gets 10 swings.  HitTrax will keep track of the stats.

  • Players will turn in collected pledges to the managers who will turn them into their league president.
