What to expect from HQ NY for players 9 - 12 

Video evaluation to identify player ability.  This is evaluation is more geared towards the parent interest, we need our parents to be involved in their child's development.  This evaluation gives the player and parent the foundation to reach their full potential.  


Our instruction is advanced hitting mechanics and it's important to follow the hitting plan we customize for each player. 

What do we look for.


How players balance and shift their weight.

How players position their feet.  The foundation of their body

How players use their lower half.  Do they create power

How players use their upper half.  Is there bat drag*, is the swing long or short.

*Bat drag may be the single biggest issue with players 12 and under.  We consider bat drag a condition that will take hours of practice and thousands of drill swings to correct. 


What do we discuss.

If we are the right program for your child.  As said we are advance hitting instruction and in some cases the player is not ready.  We offer an honest opinion.


What is bat drag. How does it affect the swing.

What is the meaning of hands inside the ball.  Does it really have anything to do with the hands.

What is the meaning of a long or short path the ball.  

What is the meaning of getting on plane with the ball.  Hands to the ball, we think not.

What is the meaning of using the lower half.  Players need to create power with their larger muscle group.


Most important we discuss how younger players are more flexible and need to develop physically.  We also know with proper hitting mechanics your child should have no issues hitting for power and average.
