Marvin,

"I won't let these type of coaches ruin my son's technique.
I think the notion that a player's swing must change as he ages is sort of a justification of a coaches job. He has to do something to justify his position even though he doesn't have a clue. Then he has to convince his players and parents that they need this to be done. That's rubbish."

Itís a shame that you have not had a positive experience with youth coaches. It sounds like you have had your fair share terrible coaching. But, there are also some coaches out there that have forgotten more then you and I will ever know. Making blanket statements about who will and will not coach your son is going to be your downfall if your not careful.

If you son truly has the art hitting perfected, great you and the family, he should be able to hit .400 at every level...if not, at one point he is going to have to make an adjustment, at one point in his playing career he might (who are we kidding he will!) go through a slump, breaking out the little league stats and the video is not the answer, he will eventually have to get coaching, he will eventually have to trust a coach that may know more then us...thatís the road, that the baseball establishment, thatís the path up the hierarchy of the game....but the bright side is, if he never slumps you'll have nothing to worry about.

ďI think the notion that a player's swing must change as he ages is sort of a justification of a coaches job..Ē

If you son was hitting why would the coach change anythingÖ? Isnít the coaches job to get the most out of his players and win games?
