Frequently Asked Questions

What does the CRT Belt do?

The CRT Belt helps to improve a catcher's receiving skill. By using the CRT Belt, you will create stronger and more efficient glove actions that translate to the game.

How is the CRT Belt used?

The CRT Belt is worn around the waist and attaches to the wrist of a catcher's glove hand. By adding resistance, the catcher will not be able add unnecessary movements while receiving, thus improving overall efficiency of glove actions while building applicable strength throughout the reception. The resistance band will also promote better connection between the glove and the body. For further explanation, check out this post on our Learn page.

Should I use the CRT Belt on a machine or with a pitcher?

We do not recommend using the CRT Belt in any higher velocity environment. Wearing a resistance band while receiving is inherently restrictive and may cause injury if not used properly or as outlined by KGS Baseball. For full product instructions and disclaimers, click here.

At what age should a catcher begin using the CRT Belt?

We recommend that catcher's ages at least 9 and up utilize the CRT Belt in their training routines. However, it is up to each individual catcher to determine if this product is applicable to their receiving skill training. We have seen catchers as young as 8 years old implement the CRT Belt into their receiving work.
