What Age Should You Slap?

A question I get all the time is “What is the proper age to turn an athlete to the left side and teach them slapping?”

My answer is “it depends!”

It depends on the athletes:

  • Skill
  • Experience
  • Softball IQ
  • Mind/Body Connection

So it’s not age dependent at all. In today’s #Tashatip I talk about a couple of scenarios that it may or may not make sense to turn an athlete to the left side.

I’ve seen it all! I’ve seen 8/9 year olds start slapping as well as 18/19 year olds.

What age did you turn to the left side?

Happy Slapping!
