Here is what Laurie has to say about the Tincher Pitching family:
“I discovered Tincher Pitching because I wanted the best for my pitchers. As I was searching to improve and fix my pitchers’ issues (injuries, speed plateaus, etc.) I came across the Tincher website. Then, one of my pitcher’s parents asked me about it. So, I decided to call Denny and he invited me to come train. As I was training, my problems were being solved, as I understood the science behind the female pitching motion. Denny also explained the “whys” to each movement accompanying drills, which I value in an instructor. With excitement, I returned to work with my pitchers to see them become less mechanical and more fluid in their motions, creating more speed and movement. I never want to stop learning. I am grateful for Denny and this group of instructors to give me the wealth of knowledge at my fingertips instead of having to figure it out on my own.”
Here is what Denny says about Laurie:
“She is incredibly patient and calm. Don’t let that fool you. Underneath is someone who has a burning desire to see her kids reach their maximum potential. She is studious, meticulous, and always searching for any little way she can do a better job with her kids. I admire the relationship she develops with students and am very, very impressed with the job she does”.
