A fun co-ed four week instructional online tutorial youth baseball/softball hitting program to introduce the fundamentals of hitting twice a week. This developmental program is designed for 6-12 year old participants, with a direct emphasis on learning the primary fundamentals that lay down the foundation for elite play in hitting for baseball and softball. Our coach will teach players how to hit at the next level each and every session. In this online tutorial, batters will develop fundamental skills learning a proper batting stance the mechanics for a proper swing, how to be properly balanced, how to stride and to follow through with their swing. Players will also learn proper plate etiquette, how to read pitches, plus a fundamental batting approach for practice and games. Players will also learn abut
the mental side of the game and how to be better prepared at the plate with a strategy for balls and strike counts for game time!
This is a progressive program each week. Each time, the drills will build upon the previous lesson, becoming more advanced each session. For example, batters will work with different stations and drills during the program, and batters will work on different hitting mechanics each time. The first couple of sessions are all about providing a good foundation for each week the player participates. We will start with the basics, and for some it may be repetitive, but we need to ensure everyone has a proper foundation for the rest of the program.
