What is a coach at a click? My reason, my success, and my goals for growing fastpitch softball.
Coach-at-a-Click- (n.) 1. A website provides access to a fastpitch pitching COACH at a CLICK of a mouse, keyboard or smartphone. 2 A way for any and all girls wanting to be fastpitch softball pitchers, to have access to quality coaching at affordable rates. 3. Information filled blog for fastpitch softball pitchers, parents, and coaches.
This website has has been a work in progress since 2009 when I developed my first, free version of the beginner program I called "Start to Strike." The beginner program is and has always been based on the exercise principle that it takes 10,000 repetitions for muscle memory to develop. The original and current programs include a total 12,000 repetitions over 8 weeks with daily practice. Drills are simple, progressive, and most can be done inside without a ball.
The orignal program had success right out the gate. I gained two current standout students that started with my free program. I was also able to reach two sister in San Diego, CA and helped them get started. Their monther was looking for an affordable option to help both her girls learn to pitch. I looked forward to updates and videos of the girls outside with their clipboards helping each other work through their drills.
These first four students motivated me to keep growing the site, reach more students, and keep challenging myself to find solutions for parents to help their daughters. I now have sold pitching programs in 21 states to help pitchers learn the basics, master their changeups, and add speed to their pitch.
My end end goal is to grow the entire sport. The earlier pitchers can throw strikes in games, the earlier girls learn to hit, and the earlier girls learn to play defense. My hope is that less girls will quit because they are bored with the all the walks in the first years of kid pitch. This will increase overall competition and produce better softball players.
Generally, I hope my pitching programs can boost local youth league and rec leagues where there is not a need to put 8, 9 and 10-year-olds in competitive travel league's.
Do you know a youth or rec program that could benefit from having more pitchers throw strikes? Please have them reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org for special group rates of my eight week beginner program.
