I am not going to lie – I look forward to every single session my daughter spends training with Megan Clark. She has made an indelible impact on my daughter as a player and a person. She can train anything (some of her batting students are amazing to watch!), but to us, she is our pitching coach. Mentor really.
This is what All American does for us – it is not just coaching technique; it is coaching your daughters career.
See, just 12 short months ago, pitching was a pent up fantasy for my daughter. She had flirted with the idea, and got to pitch in practice a few times, and even faced a live batter a few times. But with no training, and no support from her coaches, it wasn’t going anywhere.
Megan changed all of that. She has helped unlock her potential, and in less than a year, has turned her into a winning travel ball pitcher.
What makes this even more exciting is that she is a 13 year old playing up at 16u/18u. So with less than a years work, she has gone from no experience to being able to strike out college age/caliber players. There are a lot of walks in there too to be sure, and a ton of hard work on the side. We have a long way to go – but the plan Megan put in place is working wonderfully.
When we started down this path, I had a simple question for coach Megan; is it too late? My daughter had just turned 13. She had never pitched a game. By that age, most successful pitchers have 5 years under their belt.
Based on her own experiences Megan was able to give us honest, frank feedback. And then follow it up with an action plan that has set us on a great path. While there is still a long way to go (you can only cheat the learning curve so much), she is well on her way to becoming a successful starting pitcher.
This is what All American does for us – it is not just coaching technique; it is coaching your daughters career. We are hooked!
