COACHING POINTS

The coach stands behind the player keeping the band in hands. Resistance band is attached to the player's racquet and long enough to allow player to get to solid point of contact. The player imitates backhand stroke with emphasis on point of contact.

 

In this drill the player works on proper motion. Having resistance that restricts the player to go only to the limited spot is a great teaching tool that coaches can use to improve point of contact. By performing the same backhand stroke over and over again and stopping at point of contact the player builds muscle memory that will be helpful while hitting the ball. This drill can be repetitive because of lack of changing environment so coach should always give specific number of repetitions to make sure that high motivation and high quality are present in all strokes.
