Brooke Wiarda is from Green Pond, NJ. She attended Morris Knolls High School where she was a 2x North Group IV State Sectional Champ, County Champ, and 4x Conference Champ. She was also selected as a 2x Coaches Association Award Winner, 2017 Mugs Media Player of the Year, and received “The Most-All Around Senior Athlete” award upon graduating. Wiarda went on to pitch at Susquehanna University where she earned the “Pitcher of the Week” recognition for the Landmark Conference. She graduated in 2021 from Susquehanna with a degree in Biomedical Sciences.
Wiarda’s journey with the Tincher method began when she had the privilege of being a student of Alex MacLean. During Wiarda’s collegiate career she was diagnosed with TOS, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which effected her pitching drastically. She worked with medical professionals as well as Alex to adapt to the Tincher method in order to prolong her pitching career.
Learning the proper mechanics and science behind the Tincher method was eye opening! Upon graduating college, Wiarda’s goal was to continue to share the proper technique of the Tincher method with other pitchers, with a strong emphasis on injury prevention!
Here is what Brooke had to say about Tincher Pitching. “I chose the Tincher style of pitching as an athlete as a way to improve my mechanics due to having TOS. Being able to work as a student with Alex and learn from her enabled me to grow my knowledge of these mechanics, as well as prolong my pitching career! Experiencing the changes that the Tincher pitching method made for me first hand got me hooked! This understanding and the results that I saw is why as an instructor, I have chosen to continue to teach others with the Tincher method!”
What does Denny have to say about Brooke? “Brooke is one of several ‘second generation’ Certified Instructors coming into the organization. They have been there and done that, and nobody knows how we work better than pitchers who went through the system. Brook is absolutely dedicated to doing the best job possible and determined to continue growing and learning. We are so honored to have people like this in the group.”
