Coach Rockwell's Hitting Philosophy
In partner or one on one lessons, I will develop hitters using a series of hitting mechanic drills for the upper and lower body. The hitting philosophy I will teach will be for hitters to be in attack mode constantly, drive balls to the gaps, and have a full understanding of plate coverage and hitting the ball where it is pitched. In my opinion, it is very important that the drills, philosophy, and how you teach your players are all on the same page. The sessions will be precise and will avoid trying to teach everything in one session. T-drills, front toss drills, live BP, video analysis and partner instruction will be used to help the hitter understand their own strengths and weaknesses in their swing. In partner lessons, players will be partnered by age & ability so the individual can have breaks throughout the lessons as well as learn from their partner. It is not the quantity of the swings, but rather the quality of the swings!!! I will never promise that a participant will make an All Star, Travel or even school team, but will promise that the participant will be a better hitter from when they started and will have a full understanding off their own swing and what they are trying to do as a hitter.
