Give Your Hitters Ownership of their Tee Work Routine
So how do we create tee work that allows a player to efficiently prepare their swing to perform in-game? Enter a constraints-based tee routine, and hitters taking ownership of their swings. One of the things I hear most often from my hitters at the Junior High and High School levels is that their tee stations at practice really have no direction. They are sent to mindlessly take swings off the tee, fill time, and "get loose" for live BP.
I have tasked my hitters with creating a tee routine that will help them get “dialed in” to attack the day.
Allowing hitters to take ownership of their training puts them in a position to be the best version of themselves that they can for the team. As coaches, we are not here to be dictators, but vessels in the development of the athlete.
