Nov 22, 2019

Hello All,
Brand new to the sight and looking for some help in finding a pitching coach in the south western Chicago suburbs. DD just turned 11 and has been pitching for 3 years with great success at the B and C levels in 10-U and had a good 11-U fall, the problem being through my own ignorance she was taught the HE style. Any suggestions on coaches and your personal stories on making the change would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Id search for a Tincher instructor in the area. They will have the knowledge they've been instructed to teach. They will lay a solid foundation style for you to start her with. Tincher isn't 100% for everyone
In my opinion but it's a great place to start if you don't know local
Pitching coaches.
Good luck

Hi Addie22,

@Ken Krause (an administrator on this site) lives north of Chicago. I can't remember if Jay Bolden is on this site, but I believe he runs some pitching clinics and hangs out with good pitching Coaches, is south of Chicago. @coach james likely can get you a few names as well.

Definitely think about doing a roadtrip to Minnesota for the @Rick Pauly clinic @JohnnyO is hosting. I've flown from California to Indiana and Tennessee to learn from Coach Pauly. You missed a great clinic in Indiana the other weekend.

Thank you I was considering Tincher methods.

Thanks for the reply and all of the great info I will consider the road trip.

Search Tincher Pitching and you'll find coach Jill near St Charles. She currently has several pitching D1.

Thanks for your response. We have been using Jill Waldron for quite a while now with excellent results. Jill is top notch not only in what she teaches but how she teaches it.
