On This Episode
On this episode of Spotlight, Josh sits down with Cameron Ginger, founder of Propel Hitting. Cameron details some of the very first things he does when he first meets a player, how he communicates with them, and how he educates them beyond the ‘swing.’
When a player first meets Cameron for a lesson, he emphasizes that the lesson is a partnership- meaning that what he says is not always right, and that he and the player need to communicate to help each other understand what feels best, and what produces the best results.
He also says that he communicates and coaches each player differently- each player hears things differently, and that the same adjustments do not work for everyone. Cameron’s passion is being able to uncover what works for each individual player, and this helps them both learn.
Lastly, Cameron teaches his players how the body works- he has found that the players that are more knowledgeable about their hips, torso, and shoulders, have an easier time feeling and adjusting their swings. This knowledge also keeps the players safe, as they have an easier time realizing when something is wrong, compared to when something is different.
