    12U Hitting "Slump"

    https://youtu.be/7g-N0uTGepA This past weekend much better. With middle school over we were able to get back to batting coach ... worked on turning the hips quicker. Also went over that her goal was to get get at least one hard hit ...regardless of whether or not fielded (do not worry about...

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    Agree that it needs to be addressed now and that it isn't going to happen that quickly. We have had 5 consecutive tournaments, all similar opposition. Each week has gotten progressively less productive as far as hitting goes (she really started out being ahead of the pitch). The fact is that...

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    Hit well early in season ... same pitching as now. I understand that hitters on field even though they may not field well. Just looking for some new eyes to help.

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    You are correct about it being mechanical. But kids this age do feel bad and that sometimes gets in the way. She's a good fielder and always has a good attitude ... but knowing that she is now going to sit if she doesn't go 3-4 on Saturday does put added pressure on a "slump". Advice on how to...

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    What can we do for drill or approach at plate? Did a lot of "reaching" in middle school games with the poor pitching.

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    Playing similar teams (some several times) on her Travel team. But she did play on her middle school team and that was not good level & timing somewhat coincides with that. Her thoughts are that she is not swinging right. She was Ok with practicing and working through it until she sat game two...

    12U Hitting "Slump"

    12U, 5'4" bat is 31/20. Was hitting well in April first few tournaments. Last three weekends hitting slump. Coach plays those who hit on Sunday game two (she's one of the best fielders and is now on the bench for that game). Have been practicing, part is mental. We get it, but she wants off the...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    LOL ... no gag order ... Things are getting hammered out ... like a giant knot in the hair of a little girl .. Turns out lots of "he said she said" word twisting behind scenes ... still murky ... we were going to leave, he was going to leave ..... I don't have a clear answer, a clear...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    Your description of coaches "motives" may be 100% nail on the head perspective. I'm sure ego plays some part in this. A lot of this is being viewed as a vacation for a bunch of them. I'm OK with that part of it ... (for us it would be more important to go with all our kids, entire family ... we...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    Would have driven to Pony (probably) .. definitely PA (8 game guarantee over 3 days) though ... Fundraised for hotels for those .. then could leave w/o being bound by cheap non refundable airfare tickets ...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    Yes, this is the Tournament .. USSSA WS July 23rd. I sincerely don't feel this is coaches way to get "discovered". Majority feel this is good opportunity for a vacation for them ... a couple are going because they feel they have to or that they didn't want to be the only one not going... which...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    Just wanted to THANK all of you for some very good advice! Our coach last year (same organization) is the Director this year (Director both years) .... he "begged" us to stay (last year was very typical difficult first year) as we are generally very supportive and aren't in coach face type of...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    Not that many conversations, just a lot covered in each conversation. I'm sure I'm not perfect. I do ask questions when the story keeps changing (different information from Director and Coach), the information is incorrect (coach telling director things that are not true), or why fundraising...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    I agree with all. My first DD had her uniform from last year ... paid $350 of $700. My other DD needed uniform... paid $150 of $900 so uniform is paid for (did not pay for helmet /bat bag but we didn't get those yet.) I've been keeping a log of incidents/conversations ... not much in writing...

    Dilema .. what would you do?

    YOU ARE EXACTLY CORRECT. We just wanted to make sure our expectations were not unrealistic and tgat we gave it every chance before we left. You are correct correct correct.
