Re: developing hitters
> I have recently spend some time reflecting on the swing analysis program in order to work with my son (10 years old)on becoming a better hitter. He is struggling with shifting his weight to this back foot during the load phase of the swing. This seems to cause him to shift his weight quickly to the front foot as he attempts to keep his balance which leads to problems with making solid contact. Is this common among young hitters? And are there any suggests on how to help hitters work on weight transfer?

Rather than teaching weight back and then weight forward try teaching coil and uncoil. This will help the swings natural sequence flow, that should start from the ground up. It will allow the hip to lead, and will help the hitter stay balanced.
Hope this helps Coach13
