I think I came to a conclusion yesterday after a practice session with my daughter. Now some might not agree, but my conclusion is this. Why am I trying to change the big things in my daughters swing. When at the age she is, she has a hard enough time understanding the small things. I could be contributing to her having a hard understanding because maybe I'm not presenting information in a way that she can grasp. I do try hard to put it in terms that a 7 yr old can relate to. So I went and look at all the video I have of her hitting. From t-ball to now. One thing stuck out to me. That she has came a long way, and she has a long way to go in terms of growth. When she went to the pre-stride move her confidence and consistency improved dramatically. Every time I tried to change this move, and its been many times (Even before joining this forum.) she starts to really struggle. So what's my point? I'm going to let her do the pre-stride move. and work on the small things that she can grasp and change. Then, when she gets a little older and has more of a mental capacity to understand her body more, she can make those bigger changes, Leg kick etc. I can still teach her along with advice that you fine people have offered to me already and hopefully more. She can still learn to separate, use lower halfe better, hand path etc. I just felt like sharing this.
