When Speed Might Be Hurting You…….

Have I mentioned how much I love speed work? Oh, and leg drive. Oh, and spin.  Okay, you've got me.   I love everything about pitching.   I am blessed to be doing this for about 20 years now (I can't believe it!) and I look forward to working with my amazing athletes.  I love not only hearing their accomplishments, but [...]

The Biggest Mistake that Well-Intentioned Coaches Make . . .

It's a dilemma that many first-time clients call me with: "It's so strange, she was fast/dominant/accurate for so long and this year, everything just seems to be falling apart." Not coincidentally, this always seems to be happening right around the time when the pitcher enters 14U or 16U. It's a tough situation. Most coaches and [...]

The pros and cons of tech on the field

This is a period of time in which technology can be both very exciting and very frustrating. Yes, we are able to get lots of different metrics with new gizmos and gadgets, but those metrics aren't always accurate (and the tech doesn't always work!). Yes, we are able to get a lot of information about [...]

What Elite Coaches Do

I have been around the game long enough to know when I meet a coach who is going to be amazing.  When I meet another pitching coach, a great travel coach, or a great high school coach, there is something very different about them.  Their eyes light up when they talk about the game.  They can’t get enough.  They [...]

A Dream Come True

I wholeheartedly believe in following your dreams. There have been many times over the years when I strived for something that seemed impossible but was able to achieve my dreams strictly through dogged determination and perseverance. My first several seasons as a pitcher were abysmal. I didn't even do an arm circle for years. When [...]

August Specials!

It's a time of year when we, as pitchers, might decide to take a break from perfecting our motions.  Some of us might even be taking family vacations or looking at colleges. If you have been working hard all year, this is the time to step away from your motion for a few weeks. If you [...]

Age-Appropriate Training

I really enjoy discussing cross-training and different types of workouts in general, but things can get a little tricky when we are in season (see last week's post) or when we are dealing with younger populations. Training at any level has to be age appropriate and skill-level appropriate, so I wanted to give you an [...]

Should I work out while in season?

You may already know this, but many of my blogs are inspired by some great questions that have been asked during lessons or via email. So keep those questions coming since they benefit everyone!!!! Recently, a parent asked about cross-training during the season. This is such a great question because we don't want to START [...]

Legacy

Many of you may already know that my mother-in-law passed away early in March. It was something that I have since spent a lot of time reflecting on. It really got me thinking about the word, "Legacy." A legacy is something that is handed down from one generation to the next. I think that it [...]

Responsibility Versus Blame

Yes, I love the fact that many of my pitchers have won prestigious awards and have gone on to have successful collegiate careers. I don't consider collecting accolades to be must first responsibility to them, though. I don't even think it should be my second responsibility to them. My first priority is to ensure that [...]
