    If my DD I wouldn't change a thing....well.....maybe just the 'launch angle'. But, other than that I would just keep studying/learning the swing(dad/mom).
    If I can't laugh at myself...then I'll laugh at YOU!

    Agree with rdbass. Maybe try and clean up the barrel path (which is similar to 95% of 10U kids I see around here, ,my DD included) a bit other than that practice,practice,practice!!
    Life was a lot simpler when Mom/Dad couldn't videotape our less than optimal swings!!

    I am about as far from a swing expert as you can get, so I won't offer any tech advice. However, and maybe it's just the angle from the camera, but is she swinging too long of a bat? A bat that is better fitted to her height may be easier to control and lessen the bat drop/drag.

    It's a 30/19 CFX and I don't see a huge difference with her 29/18 CF8 either.

    @pattar , my wife decided that holidays require something called "family time" and put her foot down when DD and I tried to sneak off to go hit, so I'll try and get a full speed video tonight at practice.

    How dare she!! Tell her to shag balls, that qualifies as family time doesn't it?

    There is a lot of little things here that could be fixed but at some point your might over load her. She is still very young. I would start with her back foot, it is sliding back. It's an easy fix will put her in a better position.

    You don't typically see it with kids, I agree. Doesn't mean it needs to be fixed. In general, imo, the back foot
    action is a no teach unless they are "squishing the bug"..
