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?

Cal Ripken recommends doing weight shift off the Tee. I'm sure there is a youtube video of Cal Ripken doing weight shift training on th te with kids. I also believe that weight shift is best taught off the tee. Have hit line drives up the middle. The goal is to burn it into muscle memory on the tee so that it carries over to live pitch.

Ripken recommends an exagerated back and forward weight shift.
