How To Find Baseball Or Fastpitch Softball “Hitting Instructors Near Me”Hitting Instructors Near Me

Do you consider yourself openly honest and transparent?  If so, then I need your help instructors!

One of the biggest questions I get from readers is:

“How do I find baseball or softball hitting instructors near me that teach what you teach at the Hitting Performance Lab?”

In some cases, I have go-to instructors like Josh Copeland in GA, Jim Ambrosius in Jersey, or Taylor Gardner in OK.  But for most cases, I have no clue.  So I’m putting together an Excel spreadsheet of coaches to be a solution to: “How do I find baseball or softball hitting instructors near me?”

NOTE to Searching Parents

The list will be continually updated and trimmed.  Just like eBay, buyers are protected from BAD sellers with the help of buyer feedback.  That’s WHY it’s CRITICAL you provide us with that same kind of honest and transparent feedback on the “hitting instructors near me” coaches.  For that, you can contact us here.  OR, you can post your “review” below in the comments section. Also note, if there are no “hitting instructors near me” yet, then please feel free to look into our online hitting lesson program The Feedback Lab.

That being said, Click the “GET ACCESS NOW!” button below to access the spreadsheet…

My advice to filter the results is to hold down “control + F” to open the “Find” function on your PC, and type in the desired city or state, and press “enter”.  For example, try typing “California” or “CA”.  I’m not sure how to do that on a Mac, so please Google it.

NOTE to Instructors

If you’re openly honest and transparent, and support the human movement principles validated by REAL Science, then YOU WILL be rewarded with more local hitting lessons.  You’re welcome 😉  That being said, if we get an email or public review in comments down below claiming “bait & switch”, then we reserve the right to remove you from the list.  Instructors, please Click the “FILL OUT FORM” link below to fill out the form…

THANK YOU in advance!

Group Swing Analysis For Coaches

I wanted to try something new…

And see how beneficial doing group swing analysis would be for coaches.

A hitting “think tank” if you will.

The rules:

  1. Video is one swing in three speeds (100%, 50%, & 25%, in that order)
  2. NO background info about hitter,
  3. Be constructive with suggestions, NOT destructive,
  4. Share top-2 high priority fixes in featured swing, and
  5. Suggest drills and/or coaching cues to correct.

The benefit to coaches is the opportunity to objectively see a swing “snapshot”, make mind up about offering correction, then learn what others would do with the same information.

I don’t do free swing analysis anymore because I don’t have the time.  And I feel bad because the readers reaching out need some help.

So, what I’m thinking is tapping on my audience for that help.

And if you coaches like this, then we’ll do more of these in the future.

Also, don’t feel like you have to write a novel…just offer up a couple sentences.

THANK YOU in advance for your comments.

TOGETHER we can make hitting great again 😛

GO!
