Tennis: Split and cross

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

The player stands with line between the legs. The player performs coordinated movement of split steps and crossovers in the fastest possible pace.

COACHING POINTS

Playing effectively at the net requires excellent footwork skills. That is why players should always work on their movement skills that will help them improve in the tennis-specific way. This drill puts an emphasis on basic part of the net game which is the split step. Being able to make quick and explosive split step will allow players to dynamically move to the volley positions when the reaction time is pretty short. The coach should make sure that players do this pattern effectively before they speed it up.
