Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Coach stands in front of the player. Coach tosses the ball either in front of the player or behind the player. Player moves and hits overhead.

Coaching points

Most of the time, overhead is hit in dynamic balance so players should practice the shot in the same way. Tossing the ball in front of the player is an easier way to learn how to hit overhead as also how to effectively transfer the weight forward. Tossing behind the player is an advanced overhead which demands good coordination skills. Players should learn how to jump back from the back leg and land on the front one after the shot. 

Progression

Coach should challenge players with different variations to make learning process more effective. With the larger groups of players, coach can use players to toss the ball to have everyone involved in the drill.
