how much practice?
My 16 year old son has been making good progress this year in learning the rotational mechanics method of the swing. What do you all out there thnk is a reasonable amount of practice time for a kid at this age as far as swing work on a weekly basis? My thought is that it should differ depending on time of year. I hear stuff about how some guys in MLB take 200-300 swings a day virtually year round, while other guys definitely take a reduced load at times in the off season. One of my concerns is that he is not in MLB, is still a kid, has a tough academic load to handle, & just might want to do something else once in a while. He is very determined and while I appreciate how important practice is, I know a kid can burn himself out sometimes as well. What types of schedules do you recommend for someone his age?
