Objective: Build a sound technical model for hitting the ball, focussing on weight transfer.

Coaching points

  • The weight transfer comes for a good body position (square to allow the hip to rotate through and transfer the weight).
  • Get the players to pose their finsih after striking the ball. This will give a good indication of whether they were balanced at impact.
