After seeing some info on internal rotation pitching. What do I have to do to Get my daughter started. Right now she is a hello elbow pitcher.
100% start here. When my DD switched, this is where it all made sense. After 9 months of IR, yesterday we spent 30 minutes in the yard just going thru the lock it in progression over and over at DD's request. She said she needed it (BTW, she's 11). If you can get this down, the rest will be easier, but not easy. Nothing about it is easy. The DD also watched the slow mo video of Amanda Scarborough a million times on YouTube. It helped her to see what she was supposed to be doing.Start small. Way my DD started was to learn backwards. Start with the lock it in drill from 9 o'clock, after a few day go to 12 o'clock. Heck 3 years later we still start every practice with a basic 9 o'clock lock it in drill.
That's the problem. Nobody in my small community is doing this type of pitching.Find a pitching coach that knows what internal rotation is I have failed to find one in my area. Serch for Tincher pitching program in your area. Worst case senerio read all you can from stickies for pitching and watch videos and get started yourself. Hopefully you can find a coach.
