Intro: Mini-tennis. Players work in pairs and play tennis within the service boxes. Emphasis on stroke form, tempo, touch.
Lesson: Students work independently with coach. Start at service line, mini tennis. Coach reiterates importance of shoulder turn. Work through an entire bucket of cross-court forehands, then an entire bucket of cross-court backhands. Pace depends on ability of player. Three progressions max: 1st is played at the service line; 2nd is in no-man's land; third is from the baseline. After each shot, the player must return to the center and get in a ready position.
Cross-court forehands: Torque it!
While players are waiting, they play King of the Court. First in singles games, then as doubles teams.
