Parent Tips: Helping your Hitter 
  • Get good instruction. Having a sound base and understanding of the basic principles of hitting will allow them to reinforce good habits rather than bad ones.

  • Increase repetitions. Once-a-week batting practice of 20 pitches is just not enough. Throw to your player. Use wiffle balls, lite-flight balls, or tennis balls. Organize neighborhood pick-up games with coach pitch. Play 3-on-3 games where each batter will get 20 or more at bats in an hour.

  • Keep it fun. Create games and small competitions during batting practice. Give points for hitting the ball hard on the ground or through a set of cones.
