    with Richard Woodroof,
    ITPA-CTPS, USPTA, NESTA-SAQ / Director Impact Sports Performance

    Tennis players change direction every 1.1 seconds. As the speed of tennis has increased, so has the need for efficient pre-shot movements. Using exercises incorporating speed as an element of direction change, ITPA-certified Tennis Performance Trainer Richard Woodroof breaks down a training sequence beneficial to tennis players and coaches of all skill levels.

    Movement Exercises

    Concentrating on hip muscles, balance and the first step, Coach Woodroof leads you through a progression of stretch band, plyometric and cone workouts that put the body into proper hitting positions. Coach Woodroof explains correct and incorrect posture and procedure for numerous exercises. It's evident during the seven, five and three cone workouts why previous exercises must be done correctly for maximum benefit.

    All of these exercises can be done on court during good weather or inside during inclement weather.

    Footwork Drills

    The Ladder Groundstrokes drill puts a new twist on using a footwork ladder for drills. Emphasizing his focus on hip strength, the drill uses a footwork ladder to move a player forward through the shot with quick explosive movements.

    Primarily targeting intermediate players who want to fine tune their footwork to take their game to the next level, many of these exercises and progressions will benefit players of all skill levels.

    For coaches of beginning players, this video helps players understand that there's an approach to the game beyond "hit, prepare and hit again" while also being a good general fitness workout. If you have players striving for the next level, you'll be able to show them technical aspects of training footwork that can be the difference between crushing a winner or hitting an off-balance shot into the net.

    Whether you are a beginner or a more seasoned player looking to gain an edge, everyone can improve their footwork and become a better player using Coach Woodroof's teachings.

    with Mike Perez,
    Lynn University Men's & Women's Head Coach;
    7x National Championship Coach; over 1,000 career wins;
    3x NAIA National Coach of the Year; 2006 ITA National Coach of the Year (Men's);
    14x Sunshine State Conference Champions; 10x Sunshine State Conference Coach of the Year;
    Named the NAIA Coach of the Decade (1990-2000)

    In today's tennis, most of the points are won from the baseline, often after long and energy-demanding rallies. The serious and highly competitive player knows that to increase their chance of success, they must have a complete arsenal and the ability to play well in any area of the court.

    In this video, seven-time National Championship coach Mike Perez explains drills and patterns through which to play attacking tennis in the modern game, and the benefits that result from this style of play. He divides the video into three main sections, with each section filmed on court:

    • Approach Shot / Passing Shot
    • Set Plays
    • Team Tennis

    Coach Perez presents clear ideas on the vulnerability that players have to being attacked and pressured, including tall players, players who have exceptional quickness and players who have a weaker groundstroke or extreme grip on the racquet. You'll have the chance to learn the coaching strategies that prove most effective in both live ball drills and in competitive tiebreakers within team practice.

    Approach Shot / Passing Shot

    Under the supervision of Coach Perez, players execute approach patterns designed to exploit the opponent's weaknesses and build the opportunity to finish the point with a solid and efficient net game. This includes:

    • How to approach the net, where to hit the first volley and where to hit the second and definitive volley
    • Knowing how and where to direct the approach shot and the subsequent volley to successfully end points sooner

    Set Plays

    To win the decisive points and become a stronger player, you must execute a plan already trained several times previously. Coach Perez gives you pre-planned ideas on what to do in pressure situations. This gives your athletes a clear decision-making process and eliminates doubt in crucial situations. You'll see six set plays where six possible scenarios of crucial points are shown. These drills are useful to train a player's mindset and technique and get used to playing decisive points with more consistent success.

    Team Tennis

    In this part of the video, all the concepts explained in previous sections are applied together in realistic points played while Coach Perez offers more insights and strategies.

    Fitness and Strength Drills

    See a structured way to implement footwork drills at the beginning of your practice sessions to prepare athletes to move well and stay injury-free on the tennis court. The use of agility ladders and cones to enhance player movement warms up both the body and the mind in preparation for a practice session. Coach Perez also provides a series of core exercises, including many variations of planks and crunches, in order to keep your players strong and fit in the vital trunk area of the body.

    Coach Perez does an excellent job of showing how you can adapt attacking tennis into today's game. His positivity and attention to detail within points and drills brings the best out in his players and will help you do the same for yours as well!

    featuring Brian Boland,
    Head of Men's Tennis for USTA Player Development;
    former University of Virginia Head Coach;
    Back-to-Back-Back NCAA Champions (2015-17) - four championships in five seasons (2013 National Champions);
    Back-to-back (2011-12) NCAA Team Championship Runner-up;
    2016 Wilson/ITA National Coach of the Year - also named 2008 ITA National Coach of the Year';
    10x ACC Coach of the Year; 9 straight ACC Conference Championships (2007-15)

    All tennis players and teams want to achieve their maximum potential, but it's often a challenge to design practices that will help achieve that elusive goal.

    In this video, University of Virginia head coach Brian Boland, the 2016 Wilson/ITA National Coach of the Year, shows the type of drills his top-ranked NCAA teams have utilized to prepare for match play at the highest levels. Coach Boland shows a complete practice from start to finish that works on every aspect of a tennis player's game in order to be prepared for singles and doubles matches.

    While Boland's individual instruction sessions emphasize techniques to improve ball striking mechanics and movement on court, his small group workouts help players build point-play skills through a series of challenging situational games and drills that repeatedly require real-time decision making and dynamic court positioning.

    Hitting Warm-Ups

    By limiting their singles warm-ups to the center third of the court, Coach Boland's players focus less on movement and more on positioning themselves for effective ball-striking, hitting with depth and varying net clearance. In the "Roll and Rip" drill, for example, two players challenge each other by alternating high topspin shots (defender) versus flatter drives (aggressor).

    'Situational Strait-Jackets'

    This series of exercises helps you expand your players' arsenal of singles skills by placing them in a series of 'situational strait-jackets'. In these, Coach Boland allows one player to hit shots anywhere on court during points, but requires their workout partner to hit every ball to the ad court. This simultaneously challenges - and strengthens - both players' consistency and versatility.

    Situational Games

    This segment helps you improve your players' decision-making skills and doubles court positioning during point play by repeatedly challenging them to play all the roles in short situational games:

    • Where should the server send the first volley?
    • Who covers the ball down the middle?
    • How can we prevent getting burned down the line?

    Coach Boland helps his players discover the answers to these questions as they play out in dynamic, real-time practice scenarios.

    The 12 situational games and drills in this video readily lend themselves to variation based on your players' skill levels. The games and drills are fun, competitive, and simple to teach - creating a win/win scenario for coaches and players alike.

    Coach Boland deliberately fills his small group sessions with repeated situational point-play to 'program' strategically sound shot-making and positioning choices into his players' brains. His players' sustained national success becomes less of a surprise when you see that how they perform on the Championship stage year after year, with uncommon poise and intuitive decision-making (coupled with incredible talent), is what is reinforced at practice day after day!

    with Luke Jensen,
    Syracuse Women's Tennis Head Coach,
    ESPN tennis analyst,
    10 ATP Tour doubles titles (includes the '93 French Open doubles title),
    University of Southern California (All-American).
    In 1984 - was the #1-ranked junior singles/doubles player (in the world)

    There are not many DVDs, in any sport, that make you smile as you watch because the coach's infectious enthusiasm bubbles out through the DVD. This is one of those rare DVDs that teaches, reinforces, enlightens and 'fills your tank up' with innovation, creativity, fun, and purpose!

    The drills on this DVD are peppered with tips and skill reinforcement for singles and doubles and are designed to encourage a competitive, match-like environment throughout your practices. The drills work on areas such as:

    • All groundstrokes
    • Many specialty strokes
    • The serve

    The beauty of this DVD is that the way it is shot. You see Jensen working out a group of players, drill by drill, and the DVD patiently endures through the entire drill without any editing or voice over - Jensen is truly a "one shot wonder." You see all the flaws and mistakes that you will see on your own courts. Through it all, Jensen patiently encourages, gives on-the-spot correction and encouragement and shares tidbits of wisdom that are part of his total package and value as a coach.

    Jensen grew up in a tennis household; was the #1 junior in the world; HS and college All-American and excelled at the pro level - and is now imparting his advice to the women's team at Syracuse and on international tennis events on ESPN.

    This DVD is worth every dollar and every minute of time you'll invest in it!
