VPA was created for two reasons:
My pitchers needed solid instruction to train well on their own, outside of their lesson. There are also thousands of girls and boys out there with raw potential that can't afford a private coach.
If you already attend private lessons but want to train and condition effectively on your own, or are looking for personal instruction at an affordable price, VPA is for you
Coach James Barragan is a private baseball coach in Detroit, MI who works with up to 60 athletes weekly, specializing in pitching. His thorough explanations and ability to communicate well with athletes of all ages has enabled him to grow his client list from 2 students in 2015 to nearly 150 in 2019.
His training emphasizes the three major aspects of pitching: mechanics, strength, and mentality, which is reflected in Virtual Pitching Academy.

Pitching Coach for the Minnesota Twins (AAA)
Virtual Pitching Academy (VPA) was started by Coach James as a way to help pitchers of all ages and skill levels improve their game on their own. Many promising young pitchers have the desire to grow but don't know where to start. Meeting with a pitching coach is great, but lasting success on the mound depends on how well you work on your own.
Virtual Pitching Academy is a growing library of drills, workout plans, and mental training that will enable you to achieve your goals in baseball. Utilizing short video explanations of drills, workouts, and concepts, VPA is extremely user friendly and engaging.
With the expertise of Coach James, along with contributions from other experts in their fields, VPA is the perfect resource to help you train for every pitch.
