„No limits“ – double drill

The double field is enlarged behind the base line to the fence that surrounds the court (yellow lines). Draw additional lines from base-/doubleline to the fence

Drill to improve tactics, reaction, court recovery in doubles, dialogue, special skills like volley (topspin), withstanding high pressure and playing lob and smash.

And a lot of fun 🙂 .

Whistle

Whistle when you hit the ball….

This „Trick the mind-drill“ helps players in every stage, pro or beginner, to feel the rhythm, focus on contact point, set a signal for the partner on the other side, breath while hitting and its a lot of fun. Be sensible with neighbours 😉 .

 

Don’t talk, let walk

“Let the drill do the talking and the athlete do the walking”

In this article Nick Winkelman is talking about science of coaching and using new scientific knowledge in developing skills in sports. He gives an overview about constraints led coaching, the advantage of external focus, differencial learning and optimizing the transfer from pratice to the game. As we already know 😉 this implicits a new communication between player and coach.

Winkelmann is the head of athletic performance & science for the Irish Rugby Football Union. Prior to working for Irish Rugby, Nick was the director of education for EXOS (formerly Athletes’ Performance), located in Phoenix, AZ. As a performance coach, Nick oversaw the speed and assessment component of the EXOS NFL Combine Development Program. Nick has also supported many athletes in the NFL, MLB, NBA, National Sport Organizations and Military. Nick is an internationally recognized speaker on human performance and coaching science, and has multiple publications through the UKSCA, NSCA and IDEA Health and Fitness.

 

Don’t be proud of practice

„Don’t just be proud of practice, but look at how practice and training actually transfers to the field. If you’re making baseball players faster, does it actually result in more stolen bases? If you’re making golf players stronger, can they actually drive the ball farther and more accurately when they’re on the golf course?“
This link leads to a presentation by Nick Winkelmann with objects about coaching in running. Using goals, errors, constraints, external focus, contextual interference and differencial learning:
  • Discuss a technical model for sprinting from a dynamic
  • systems perspective
  • Discuss an error model for sprinting from a dynamic systems
  • perspective
  • Discuss a constrain-based coaching model with emphasis placed on instruction/feedback and practice design

Questions

To the most frequent articles in forums for coaches in social networks belong videos of players in training sequences. Coaches set pictures of their players from practice to get from other tcoaches tips for technical corrections.

In the comments on the videos you will find many motivated and well-meaning advices from colleagues from all over the world. In most cases, this is about „tips“ for changing the technique.

But there are also articles from coaches who ask the right questions about the videos: „In what context was the video recorded?“, „How are the results (not visible in the video) of the hit?“, „Balls were in play or is the play-off from the basket? „, ….) Questions weiterlesen
