Excellent forehand volley video helped MY game!

I am definitely vouching for this volley video. My forehand volley is a ridiculous weapon now after seeing this and processing it in a week's time. Thanks, Jeff S!

The reason is to clear the net. Always finsh volleys with the racquet above. The net.or lift volleys up.

Ok, maybe I'm not seeing it, but why lift the racquet high after the volley?  It's not imparting anymore spin that I can see, so is there some other reason for it?

Like that distinction: do-ers, listeners, or trial and error. That makes a lotta, lotta sense to me. I wish I had thought of that before.

Its easy. I'm very talkative as well. But the trick is to know how they learn. Either do-ers listeners or trial & error. Most hi level Jr. R do-ers & trial & errors. So know ur audience. I can only coach very few 6 year olds & even. Their lessons last about 45 of attention. Most of my pre. Teens listen for ten minutes. Out of a hour. So pick ur battles. Know who's going to make it &who just wants to play.

Yeah, I like seeing Salzenstein do it rather than Rafter, because you can see him making the concept work up close. It doesn't look as tight as Rafter's but you see the motion being employed. There are so many countless videos where a coach shows the famous tour player's shot, but the coach does not do it himself. I think that's cowardly in a way.

Another great vid from Jeff, its very similar to his Rafter vid that I posted keeping the 'head' to the 'head'.

 

But the service line thing is very good, how many times trying to keep it deep do we pop up the volley.

The part for me that really worked with the Jeff Salzenstein video is finishing with the racquet head on the same side of the body and up. At first, this felt really bad to me, because I was a touch volleyer and liked to drop the head for drop shots or go across on the ball for angles. But now, it comes out like a laser and who can argue with that?

You got all those kids going at once, Coach V! I could probably never get them to do that with all that fun urgency. The coach I worked for was good at that too, getting the kids doing things quick. I think I'm a little too brainy and methodical, and give long explanations. lol

Its really getting under the ball and lifting it over the net. This is the First Thing I demonstrate in my kids video.

go in about 43 sec & Lower the volume Because its Loud.  this old & one of my first Vids.
