My daughter has been having a rough 2 months of batting. She was the lead off hitter for most of the year, but due to my meddling to improve her performance (I think) she has been struggling to make good contact. she can hit almost any for of practice fairly well (front toss/side toss/ mini whiffle balls/Tee) but get an actual pitch and she swings under it or doesn't hit squarely. I do have some vids I can post later but any thoughts on how to improve contact?

It could just be nerves during Game time. It happens a lot. Player does great during practice but struggles in the Game, but to really help see what's going on you need video. Also is this kid pitch? If so maybe she's afraid of getting hit by the ball or she is simply waiting too late to get started and therefore having to rush everything which causing swing problems.
