Do you get your kids practising overarm throwing to develop the serve? If you do, then you’ll know that there is a problem! Read on for Coaching Tips to get players vertically throwing to develop the serve and an activity that parents can do.
To correct the ball toss we look at the importance of having the weight transfer onto the front when the ball is released from the throwing arm.
Whilst working with the Romanian Tennis Federation in Bucharest Mark demonstrated 5 ways to develop the serve when a player moves from your red programme into your orange programme. The key points are a great summary of the points in our Developing the Serve Masterclass (enrolments are now open) and our full Developing the Serve Series.
In this video Mark looks at a few key features of how you can further development the serve from the red court to the orange court.
The junior player is now older and a bit taller, stronger and importantly, more coordinated, than they were on the red court. These changes mean that the player can start to use a bit more of their body than they did on the red court.
Mark’s focus of this video is to highlight some key areas where we can add the next layer on to the serve.
