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).

 

Efficient Workouts!

The Daily Minimum!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Students,

As I have told you many times, this is your daily minimum.
3 minute dynamic warmup routine prior to practice and a 10 minute fitness routine after practice. If you get these done, you can feel free to workout more. Each day, you can choose to do the core workout or the leg workout.
I would encourage you to pull out your phone or turn on your tablet and follow along to make sure that your workout stays timed and structured.

Thanks!
Coach Samson Dubina

The Details

Comparing Drills to Matches

One of the most frequently asked questions is..
“Samson, why do you do drills? Wouldn’t it be better to exclusively play matches each day?

Good Question. In preparing for the Olympic trials, there are many aspects of my game that I need to continually sharpen – strokes, footwork, serve, serve return, short game, offense, defense, etc… For isolating one or two aspects of the game, I can select unique drills to work that aspect over and over again during a 10 minute drill. So for performing drills, you can work on the specifics.
