No Time for Breaks?
You and your daughter may have heard this advice from a coach, player or another parent, "If you want to be the best you can be, you've got to practice and put the time in. There's no time for breaks." The problem with this well-intentioned pearl of wisdom is that it is partially true. Your daughter will need to practice a lot to be the best she can be. However, if she doesn't take a break now and then, she will either risk becoming burned out or injured.
If you don't believe me, try swinging the bat 100 times off the tee every night of the week and let me know how that works out for you.
