Week 6 Throwing: Around Forehands (10/15)

Practice schedule:
  • Monday - 2:00-4:00PM, Turf
  • Tuesday - 2:00-4:00PM, Turf 
  • Wednesday - 4:00-6:00PM, Jefferson Park
  • Thursday - 4:00-6:00PM, Jefferson Park

Here's the general plan for throwing practices (+2 hours on Wednesday/Thursday):
  • 2:00-2:29pm - Unstructured throwing
  • 2:29-2:45pm - Dynamic warmup
  • 2:45-3:30pm - Throwing drills
  • 3:30-4:00pm - 3-on-3 games (keep-away, mini, box, double box, etc.)

Drills for this week are:
  • Lines, open side backhands and forehands (10 min)
  • Lines, force backhand, breakside cut for around forehand, PASSIVE mark (10 min)
  • Horozontal (diamond) breakmark cutting drill, force backhand, throw around forehand, PASSIVE mark (10 min)
  • Come-to breakmark cutting drill, force forehand, active marks.  Throw IO backhand or around forehand (10 min)
Again, I strongly suggest you download the video (that means you need to register for a free Vimeo account). There are a lot of things you can see more clearly when you watch frame-by-frame.

Quick comment on Around Forehands: See comments for Forehands and  IO Forehands.  Don't pivot to the backhand to set up the around forehand.
