> Hey Mark,

Coach C recommends that you keep your son/DD in the instruction and see if he improves... there's no question that he will improve just by the fact that he is getting in some serious swings will improve him.

The question is do you want to teach him/her the linear swing which is what you're getting now or do you want to teach the rotational swing?

Commit yourself to researching the swing and find out which kind of hitter you desire... if you learn enough you can teach your son/DD yourself. and that's alot of fun!!!

To answer you question "is this guy on the right track?"... yes if you have a daughter(DD) who hits left handed and is fairly weak and is as fast as a rabbit. she'll be a great table setter for the 3 and 4 hitters :-) do your homework... there are many people that will help you. All the best, Rich
