    Hi Jorge,
    GREAT drill for all levels, specially my high school students, mostly they don’t move thier feet,
    I have them split at the opponent contact, and move, maybe bounce hit might get them moving

    u send us a lot of good usefull drills, that works ifor all levels, appreciate it

    Thanks, pattu

    Nice trail coach, sometimes simple is the best, and most reproducible. How long would you suggest this drill be done?

    I love the verbal reminders. When I coach new players, as I feed the ball, I say “Get to the ball, set, and hit”.
    This is good information moving forward…

    Great drill! Useful for all levels and ages.

    What drill or drills do you have for overheads?

      Hi Claude. One of my favorite OH drills is to have the players catch the ball in their opposite hand and then serve it back. As far as timing the OH, I like to have them count to 3. Like 1… 2… 3… That often helps the timing as well.

    You’re really committed to share your expertise. Great job. This will surely improve timing of my 10under players and feel inspired hitting groundstrokes. Thanks.

    Hi Jorge,
    Jeebee here in Tucson- hope you are well.. Thanks for this. Last week my partner and I were so “off” – partially due to no warm up time and feeling rushed when we finally got 10 minutes (opponents had lots of time on their home court) that I think something like this would have really helped us get into a rhythm quickly. We never got into a groove.
