Parents are the real “life coaches” of our children.  It is important to let our children know that no matter what happens on the athletic field that they will have unconditional love and support at home.

With Dennis, parents are invited to listen in on most all pitching lessons, clinics, and seminars.  It is not uncommon to have a “parents lesson” as well. This is all about taking a  “mental snapshot” of their child, taking a step back to assess it, and then helping form a plan for short and long term improvement.  The key with formulating this plan up front is to keep expectations and goals in line along the developmental process.

Scenarios for discussion points include (but are not limited to):

  • Little League tryouts
  • College Selection
  • Travel Team choices
  • Misunderstandings and Disagreements with Coaches
  • Difficulty Discussing Baseball at Home – Family Stress

Every young athlete has his own story to write.  Sometimes chapters need to be repeated, sometimes not.  A good instructor will act as the ‘proof reader’ making sure that no step is skipped on the way to the masterpiece.

To get your athlete’s plan in motion, get touch with Dennis today.
