Coaching points

In this drill player works on ability to control approach shot on the run. Many times players train approach shots in comfortable situations when the truth is that match conditions are quite different. During competitive points coming to the net happens both planned and unplanned. Training both options will let players be effective at the net no matter what. Coach has to pay attention to physical aspects because proper athletic skills can create faster improvements but on the other hand problems with speed or coordination can really limit player’s effectiveness.
