Top Down Approach

Been wanting to get back and ask this.

I am curious as to what the progressions are for a top down approach. Not just a Spartans question but hopefully he will chime in.

Spartans (i think) posted this 12yr old. What level is she considered at? Why the low hand set and knocked knees? What does she have to accomplish to go to next step and what is that next step?


and this girl.

What level is she considered at in her progression, what was her progression steps and what would she be learning next?

Would like to hear the progression from anyone that is top down.

Thanks in advance.

My experience with young inexperienced female hitters (8- 12) tells me this approach does not work. Only the most athletic girls (due to gymnastics or martial arts) are strong enough to TTB and everything else will fall in place. If a hitter can not dynamically balance and use her torso all the TTBing in the world is not going to help her. That being said, for an experienced hitter (2 or 3 years) that has some balance and some torso working and is looking to improve, teaching , isolating and experimenting with TTB is a good idea.
