So, why did Jen choose Tincher Pitching?
“Growing up, I was fortunate to have a great pitching coach. Someone who not only knew the game of softball inside and out, but also knew how to foster a love and passion for pitching so strong that it has become an integral part of who I am today.
After many years of playing and coaching I started to feel like my pitching methodology was no longer effective at producing the results and meeting the goals of my students. I felt stuck in my traditional ways of teaching and I began searching for something new. Something beyond the typical T, L, and K drills. I went looking for a program, a mentor, a philosophy, a community for coaching softball pitching that was innovative. I was looking for a gateway to greater knowledge and understanding of how the body moves and produces speed without causing pain or injury. And that is how I came to learn about Tincher Pitching.
I truly feel that Tincher Pitching is so much more than just a philosophy for teaching pitching. It really is a platform for learning new ways to grow healthy, strong softball pitchers and better coaches through collaboration, research, science, and experience. All the coaches are so willing to share and help and this is what makes the process so special. Anytime one of us needs guidance, there are literally handfuls of peers to rely on for help. It is a true team effort. Because of Tincher Pitching, I feel confident that my students will always have access to the most groundbreaking, safe, efficient, and effective pitching methods around.”
Here is what Denny says about Jen.
“The more I work with her, the more impressive Jen is to me. She is quiet and unassuming, studious, and very observant. Watching her work, I came to realize that she is “taking it all in”, making sure she understands every single concept, and moving forward with purpose. Jen is truly a student of pitching and her kids will be much better for it. We like this Instructor a lot.”
