Online Hitting Lessons- Are They Right For You?

Written By: JK Whited

Online Hitting Lessons

Online hitting lessons are something that is not new. For some people, however, the concept is tough to understand. There is one first question always asked.

"Why don't players just take lessons from someone local?"

Unfortunately, the number of baseball/softball instructors who are armed with good information is small. Because of this, online instruction is sought out.

If you are lucky enough to be within driving distance of these instructors, I highly encourage you to work with them! For the majority of parents and players, this isn't an option.

People who are looking for a proven plan and instructor who will tailor a personalized training progression to the individual client, Baseball Rebellion Online Hitting Lessons might be a great fit! Here are the reasons why.

The Benefits of Online Hitting Lessons:

No More Guessing

I took a lot of lessons growing up. I also gave many lessons while playing, not knowing what I was doing. Because of this, I can tell you that most hitting coaches are guessing. Most regurgitate what they were taught, even if it worked or not. 

But What About the Eye Test?

The human eye is too slow to see exactly what is happening in the swing. Consequently, this leads to inefficient results. Often the player begins practicing things that are detrimental or irrelevant to their swing at best.

This doesn't sound like something most players or parents would want to pay for. As a result of this, we use technology like slow-motion video analysis of clients and professionals. We work to systematically understand optimal body movements and train the movements that produce successful results. 

Detailed Swing Evaluation

Swing Evaluation for Online Hitting Lessons

One thing that we carried over from our in-person lessons to our online lessons is the initial swing evaluation. Before you are taught anything by our instructors your swing is broken down step-by-step. This shows you the things you do well already, as well as the things that need to be worked on.

The evaluation allows the hitter and the instructor to see where they stand and the work they will have to put in. Furthermore, it allows the hitter and their parents to see the inefficiencies of the hitter and how they are going to be corrected. 


A Clear Plan

Individualized Plan

While some instructors can identify problems in a swing accurately, it is even more important that they know how to improve the issues they see. This is something that takes a great deal of skill from the instructor.

Because of this, many players with similar mechanical problems will respond differently to various drills/cues that are designed to promote a positive change. We make a clear plan that is tailored to each individual client. It is based on their specific age, needs, and learning style.

Quick Feedback and Explanations Anyone Can Understand

Explanation Understood by Anyone

Our online hitting instructors have a great turn around time of no more than three business days. This allows for quick and effective communication of feedback, concepts, drills, and next steps for clients. The feedback given is delivered with the appropriate "voice" for each client. Our goal is to give in-depth and thorough feedback but in a way that is simple and easy to understand.

One of our mottos is that if an Elementary school student can't understand the feedback, then the feedback needs to change! One of my favorite videos to watch is of one of our clients when he was 6-years-old breaking down the swing. His great explanation is a result of the common and easily understood language used at Baseball Rebellion.

A Library of Videos and Drills Available to Watch Anytime

One of the best benefits to online lessons with Baseball Rebellion is that you can watch previous feedback and drills an unlimited number of times through HUDLTechnique! While in-person lessons are great, the benefit of watching feedback and drills remotely is not generally offered with in-person lessons.

With Baseball Rebellion & HUDL Technique, you will be using an unbelievably user-friendly app that will give you easy access to submitting video.

You have the ability to share and receive up to 3, 6, or ∞ videos for analysis each month.  Some of these videos may be drills that your expert instructor asks you to perform.
