Under the direction of Jim Hardy and Brooke Hardy, players will be trained using state of the art slap hitting techniques. Jim has coached over 30 players that have gone on to play softball at the college level and Brooke will be attending Jacksonville University in Florida in the Fall of 2014 on aSoftball Scholarship, and this is how she was trained.
Jim has converted 6 right handed batters into lefty slappers (and hitters) that have earned college scholarships. If you are a lefty batter or blazing fast righty(3.0or better home to 1st) looking to enhance your skill set, lefty slapping couldbe your ticket to college or starting for your High School team, as it’s all about getting on base.
Sessions will consist of 3-4 players pergroup to maximize the player to instructor ratio.
The training will consist of multiple slap hitting stationsas well as full swing stations as it’s critical to being a successful allaround slapper to be able to have swing sway as well as power slap and bunt. The hitting stations are designed to teach theyounger player the foundations of a being a weapon from the left side of theplate be teaching all aspects from slapping, power slapping, bunting and fullswing. The players will progress throughthe 6 week sessions with a graduated approach that will allow them to develop theproper mechanics to take all aspects of slap hitting from to the ballfield. Part of this is the development ofthe mental component of hitting. Learning the proper mental approach to take into the batter’s box oneach and every pitch is critical to having success. You can’t control your result, but you cancontrol having a good at-bat!
Exact Session times will be based on number ofregistrations. We are limiting eachSession station to 3-4 players.
