He went on to say , I’ve been watching you and you have a way of teaching/coaching that I would like to bring in to my facility... I have been instructing since that meeting 9 yes ago
What types of students have you worked with?
I have work with as low as 4yr old
and workout with some prospects and pro guys
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
funny that you asked this question, as I just left an event in Atlanta Georgia MVP mentoring viable prospects Lots of AC MlB guys run the tournament with a lot of coverage from colleges and pro scouts
I’m also fond of Perfect game events
And also the Norcal World Series or there’s tons of coverage from division one schools and pro scouts
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Look for someone that can relate, that has passion and not in it for the money
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Depends on the age of the student and the skill level
Younger kids don’t understand the many components of a swing , so it would be hard for them to fully understand what they’re looking for
An older guy that has experience , can’t come in and say I’m wrapping too much or i’m not tracking the ball And we can work together to figure it out
