Fielding and Batting Fundamentals at the Tee Ball Level

Aaron Jack, a resident of Wichita, Kansas, currently serves as president of Genius Diversified Holdings, LLC, in Overland Park, Kansas. Outside of his work at the advisory firm, Aaron Jack enjoys spending time with his family. He currently coaches his daughters’ tee ball and soccer teams.

Coaching tee ball requires a unique set of skills, as coaches are expected to provide players with baseball fundamentals while also managing the safety and overall behavior of a large group of 4 to 6 year olds. To achieve both goals, coaches should ensure that lessons and drills are extremely focused. For example, fielding drills should simply emphasize each player keeping their eyes on the ball at all times. As the ball moves into the glove, players should be instructed to trap the ball with their free hand.

Batting drills should stay equally succinct. After the tee is adjusted so that the ball sits at the player’s waist, the coach should assist each player in assuming a proper stance, which includes slightly bent knees with feet shoulder-width apart. As players grow comfortable in their stances, coaches can begin to work on their grip and the small, lead-foot step that should be taken as the player swings.

The Similarities Between Snow Skiing and Waterskiing

Aaron Jack has served as president of Genius Diversified Holdings, LLC, in Overland Park, Kansas, since 2012. In the past he has served as a Kansas state representative. When Aaron Jack is not overseeing business at Genius Diversified Holdings, he enjoys both snow skiing and waterskiing.

There are a number of similarities linking the sports of snow skiing and waterskiing, beginning with a few shared techniques. Leg strength and an ability to maintain balance over the course of repeated lateral shifts in weight are the keys to success when skiing on both snow and water. The techniques are so comparable, in fact, that a number of water ski enthusiasts use the winter snow ski season to improve their balancing skills. Waterskiing is especially connected in experience to a snowy slalom course, as the two events require athletes to move their legs and rotate their waists without turning their upper body.

Snow skiing and waterskiing also utilize similar equipment. In the past, this may not have been true, but in recent years, the sport of waterskiing has adopted hard-shell boots and bindings in order to minimize the likelihood of serious ankle injuries on the water.
