The best thing about this site is...if you have an open mind and truly believe that you don't know everything, then you truly might learn something. Here's what I have learned...as a coach it is my responsibility to stay ahead of my kids. They are getting better. Some say it's the coaching, but I say it's primarily their effort and desire to get better. I simply help them understand what they can accomplish. Last time I checked, it wasn't me standing in the batter's box staring down that ace pitcher from the other team in the eyes. It's a 13 year old girl doing it! And as they continue to progress, so must I or they will lose confidence in me as their coach. So, I come here with an open mind and a willingness to learn. Rule, #1, I leave my ego in the main forum. Hopefully I learn something and maybe, just maybe there's somebody out there with a little less experience than I have that I can help in return. Because we all OWE! We OWE!!
Key is the open mind and the comfort in knowing that it's OK to say you don't know everything. I mean really....would I be doing what I do now if I did know everything or would I be coaching Team Planet (better than Team USA...it's the team made of the best players in the entire world)
So my suggestion is to keep an open mind and also understand that people's beliefs in a particular swing style could be similar to their religious beliefs. Whether they be Christian, Islam, Hindu, or some Aborigine bush people who wake up in the morning and pray to god of the river that brings them life...people's beliefs are important to them. So, who are we to judge or ridicule?
