This is why Ashley chose Tincher Pitching:
“I am a person who is also looking to learn more. When it comes to pitching, I was taught in the more traditional, conventional way. Soon after I started instructing on my own, I noticed that my athletes always seemed to ‘hit a wall’ or ‘plateau’. Of course, I looked internally and knew I could be doing better for my athletes. So I searched for information, and was really just wanting a community or group of people I could bounce questions and ideas off of. I had come across a few but nothing really spoke to me, until I found Tincher Pitching. Luckily, I know another certified instructor and was able to get an insiders prospective and I was immediately sold. I decided to reach to Denny out in hopes that I could come check out what this was all about.
The first time I met with Denny, he had a full day of private lessons and it was just me training. Instantly, I said to myself, ‘Everything he is saying is almost the opposite of what I’ve always been told or taught, but it MAKES SENSE’. I immediately started testing out what I was learning and was shocked at the almost immediate results I was seeing. I even said to Denny ‘where were you when I was growing up, this just feels so EASY’. I was hooked from there on out. What drew me in even more was that this method is specifically for the female body and the way it works and moves naturally. There is research behind it, answers, and explanations. None of this is ‘well that’s just what I’ve been taught so that’s how it’s done’ and being someone who loves to learn and fully understand things it just worked for me. I have seen my athletes grow so much in the short time I have been instructing through Tincher and I would never THINK of teaching anything else.”
Here is what Denny says about Ashley:
“What a great background. She is inquisitive, so quick to learn, and her insight into the mental part of the game is invaluable. Ashley is the epitome of things we look for in an Instructor and we are fortunate to have her with us”.
