    Practice Plan Question

    I am coaching a second year 12U team for the 21-22 season. We will have a batting practice during the week for an hour and an indoor practice every Sunday for 2 hours.

    Best virtual pitching coach?

    It just came out about a month back. I agree with the HLT being the gold standard, I assume the pitching book is just as good. She is 12 and has been pitching for 3 years. She needs the most work currently on posture and her feet. Needs to get to a more natural motion. Sent from my moto g...

    Team pitching coach or individual?

    I have been asked to help coach a second year 12U travel team for next season. I'd like to hear people's thoughts or experiences on hiring one pitching instructor and having weekly small group sessions for the 2-3 team pitchers versus having each individual pitcher responsible for finding...

    Trying out for a new team

    Hello, Thank you for all the comments, so helpful. A lot of comments about coaches kids on the team......the coach for the new team is a non-parent, she is a former college player as well as her assistants which is a huge plus for me. All female, non-parent coaching staff. Head Coach seems...

    Trying out for a new team

    @tamss13 - I agree 100%. She wants to see what's out there so that's what we're doing. I told her if she makes a team but she's not feeling it, we say no thanks and go home. It stressful, hard to wait until Monday 🤣. But I know it will be perfectly clear

    Trying out for a new team

    Thank you for the responses. I agree with all of the replies. I think part of the problem is my daughter is more competitve than most of the team. She wants to be a great player personally, plus win games. She's young, but has dreams of playing college ball. As a parent I need to put her in...
