4 Tips When Looking for a Hitting Coach

4 Tips When Looking for a Hitting Coach

1. Ask around. Odds are you’re looking for someone in your area, so the best place to start is by asking other parents on your Player’s team.
2. Check softball social media pages for your area. Facebook has so many groups, and it’s likely there’s a page directed towards fastpitch softball in your area. Girls and parents may post about guests playing and looking for teams. We often see hitting/pitching coaches putting themselves out there looking for players if they’re interested.
3. Check credentials. Not all good hitting coaches have to play at the highest level, but it’s good to look at where they got their knowledge from. You can also look at players they’ve formerly taught and players they’re currently teaching to get a feel for the teaching style.
4. Look at rates. For half an hour of hitting, coaches can range from $25 to $ 45 per session. Find a price that best fits you.
