    Hello from a parent of two Cincy Slammers players, 12u Jones and 13u Lockwood, a second for the Hutchinson’s My daughter has seen Tyler (Wendell’s son) for 5 or so lessons. A tremendous improvement in just a short time. Great facility, resume and coaching from them IMO.

    All good suggestions on here but, I would recommend Gerry Berling (Straight Leg on here) in the Deer Park area would be my choice.
    Outside of the hitting mechanical areas he will also help the player work on strength and agility to help build power in the swing. He has a lot of training videos on you tube and you can get an idea of what he does by them.

    Some questions to ask a prospective coach would be:
    How long have you been coaching/training?
    What is your hitting style? This is key, while everyone wants their kid to be a power hitter most are not.
    Are you part of a coaching network or, have any coaching credentials?
    How do you assess progress?
    What are the student / parent expectations?
    Is your instruction one on one or group?
    As the ladies progress and get older the needs change as does their body so some tweaking of the swing occurs all through the playing years.

    Thanks Dennis for the kind words. I am of course a Howard Carrier / Bustos lemming. We teach throwing, fielding, hitting in that order....I am currently booked, but thank you again for the props.

    With Straight Leg booked. Shannon at Hardcore Hitting 513-846-2121 or Rob Wear if he has openings but he is a stretch if you are looking Cincy area. Nothing against Tim or Wendell both are very accomplished and I believe certified coaches but I think they would be more Warren County lower Dayton Area. I think all hit areas that build the swing including strength, conditioning, agility, throwing catching etc. There are connections to a good swing and making a good swing better....
