PowerCore 360® [PC360]

POWERCORE 360® [PC360] - Triangle is one of only a few clubs in the country certified to train PC360, a very effective technology for learning how to hit safer and harder. The training is rooted in biomechanics, core engagement, and hip rotation which helps athletes become stronger attackers with increased power but reduced risk of injury.

All PC360 clinics and courses utilize specialized equipment and technical instruction designed to teach safe and effective attacking using proper hip, torso, and shoulder action -the central innovation is the harness and 'arm action trainer' which allows players to *FEEL* proper motion rather than just see or hear. COVID-19 adjustment: we are limiting use of harnesses due to COVID-19 guidance limiting sharing of equipment but have designed an alternative method to help athletes feel the biomechanics being taught.

Triangle's considerable experience with PC360 has resulted in tremendous improvement in hitting power and effectiveness while reducing significantly the injury potential of Triangle athletes.

PowerCore 360® Certified Instructors have completed numerous hours of additional training.
