Day 3 (Shaw JCC Mega Camp)

Training Video and Lecture Video!

 

 

Today, in the interactive lecture, we discussed various types of drills - systematic, semi-systematic, random, multi-location from both sides, open ended, and game situation drills...  detailing the reasons for each drills and at what stages each drill should be implemented.  We also talked about the 10 stages of implementing footwork (see video below).

 

Day 2 (Shaw JCC Mega Camp)

Check out the NEW VIDEO and ARTICLE!

With a 1.5 hour interactive footwork lecture and 5 hours of training on the table, the players had a full day of footwork. During the 1.5 we discussed the importance of racket positioning, the proper way to balance, as well as the positioning of the legs and feet. The bulk of the lecture was spent discussing the 10 ways of moving….
#1 Simple side movement (shuffle) with beginner and advanced variations
#2 Long-distance crossover
#3 Simple in-and-out
#4 In-and-out jump
#5 Short game 1-step
#6 Short game 2-step
