how do you tell a coach that his methods are out dated and dont work anymore, a couple of years ago both of our top pitchers hurt there shoulders because they were throwing his way, This year was better because me and a couple of other players starting going to a pitching coach and we started teaching the other kids on our team how to pitch a safer more affective way.
I would say our team batting average was about 200 because him and our assistant coach believe that inorder to get lift on the ball you have to swing down and hit the top of the ball then roll your wrists over, now i have no idea how that even make sense, not only would swinging down cause you to hit ground balls but rolling your wrist over would cause top spin and that would make the ball sink,
They also believe that in order to get kids better defensively you have to hit ground balls at them non stop which makes sense but most of the kids on our team don’t know how to do it but our coaches think they should know it already so they wont break it down and teach it step by step.
I know I shouldnt argue with a coach and I should let him do the coaching but how do you not argue with him when at our state tournament we got out score 44 to 1 in 2 games.
I have delt with these methods and have been losing because of them for 5 years how can I tell him he needs to change and be respectful about it? and actually get him to listen about all I can think of doing is not playing for this team next year and go somewhere else because im am sick of losing.
