Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The player stands on the balance platforms. Cones are set around the player, with the player's goal to touch each cone separately without falling off the platforms.

Balance platforms work best with this drills. If coaches don't these though use your creativity to find an alternative (stand on a bean bag for example).

The important thing is to use something that is SAFE to stand on and ideally forces the kid to test their balance.
