Movement Training For Tennis Video (Copyright 1990)

How can players set themselves up to hit perfect returns like the pros? Let Jack Groppel, Lynne Rolley, Stan Smith, and Nick Saviano show you in Movement Training for Tennis. Developed through the expertise of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Sport Science Committee, this video presents a progression of drills to help players at any level add explosive movement to their game. World-renowned tennis coach Dr. Jack Groppel enlists the aid of USTA tennis experts to show coaches, instructors, and players how reaction time and movement time result in explosive speed. This concept involves the player's seeing the ball off the opponent's racket (reaction time), adding an immediate split-step toward the ball (movement time), and completing the execution of the shot with a rapid release of energy (explosive movement). In Part I of this video, players start off with warm-up drills to prevent injury. Next, there's a progression of sport-specific drills designed to help players improve shot anticipation, initial take-off, footwork, body position, and recovery time after hitting the shot. Players will progress from short speed drills to more complex drills that incorporate lateral and horizontal movements. In Part II, the unique sliding techniques required to play effectively on clay is demonstrated. Players will learn how to step into the slide before executing the stroke, how to recover after the shot, and how to maintain balance throughout. Movement Training for Tennis is a valuable tool in helping players use movement to stay on top of their opponents' shots during match play and get the winning edge.

This video features John Officer, US Naval Academy Head Tennis Coach ITA Region I Coach of the Year 1991, 1999 1991 USPTA National College Coach of the Year. Mental Toughness has been around as long as there has been competition. In the past 20 years we have relied on the principles of Psychology to help define this most crucial ingredient in championship tennis. Words like self-esteem, positive, negative, and fun have been presented in the hopes of quantifying what it takes mentally to think like a champion. Unfortunately, words of psychology are too vague to define the real battle on the court. The Warrior Ethos concept has been around for centuries and does a much better job of explaining the key elements in competition in a way the mind can access. Officer defines the warrior ethos and breaks it into 12 categories: Passion, goals, fear, calmness, energy, work ethic, ethics, determination, clarity, belief, competitive fire, and awareness.
