Session Plan
Tyler likes to start with a player’s foundation and build from there. He understands that every player is different and he strives to customize/personalize every interaction to a player’s skill set. Ingraining fundamentals along with maintaining what is comfortable/safe/practical is paramount. Building a rapport with the player is the key to productivity/success while balancing praise with constructive criticism. A typical first lesson would entail playing catch or hitting and giving the player instruction that will allow for immediate improvement. Once the improvement is evident to the player and confidence is elevated we will progress to more tedious drills/fundamentals that will provide the tools for the player to progress. Depending on the player, work ethic, and their skillset, the drills/techniques will vary. Some of which will be tailored to that specific player. He will provide the mindset and physical aspect of the game simultaneously. Innovation/motivation leads to success!
