Learn distance timing and placement using a wall and a tennis ball

It is vital to know where you are and vital to know where you are going.

In this series of drills we will learn to work solo and with a partner in order to bring to mind the location and direction we are heading no matter what is heading our way.

The tools: You, a partner, a tennis ball, a wall.

Partner drills:

1. stand a few paces from each other and throw the ball to each other catching it with a moving hand and never letting the ball stop.

2. stand a few paces from each other and throw the ball to each other catching it with a hand and your body (catching the ball between the body and hand and moving all at the same time) and never letting the ball stop.

3. Walk at a fixed distance from each other and throw the ball to each other catching it with a moving hand and never letting the ball stop.

4. Walk freely from each other and throw the ball to each other catching it with a moving hand and never letting the ball stop.

5. Have one run around the other and throw the ball to each other catching it with a moving hand and never letting the ball stop.

6. Have on stand facing a wall and his partner behind him and pass the ball in the same manner using the wall to bounce the ball through.

7. Have one partner close his eyes and the other throws him the ball (don’t use a rock this time:) ) so he can work toward continuous motion with the ball once contact is made.

8. place one on his fists and feet and have the partner walk around him and throw him the ball. You catch the ball and return it without letting it stop moving.

9. Place the ball on the ground and use your feet alone to pass the ball from one another without kicking it.

Solo drills:

1. Move from standing to laying down and back continuously as you throw the ball up and catch it without letting the ball to stop.

2. Stand facing the wall and bounce the ball off the wall with moving the body off the path of the coming ball and never letting the ball or you stop moving.

3. Stand facing away from the wall and bounce the ball off the wall moving the body off the path of the coming ball and never letting the ball or you stop moving.

4. Stand with your side to the wall and bounce the ball of the wall with catching the ball between your limbs and your body without letting the ball or yourself stop moving.

5. Stand with no expensive glass around you and bounce the ball using just your body and legs.
