Drill Description: One player stands in the center of the court on
the baseline. The other player has a bucket of balls and stands in
the middle of the court anywhere from the
baseline to the net. The person with the bucket of balls feeds the
balls to the other player. The goal is to make the person on the
baseline run as much as possible. Each ball the player successfully
runs down and hits in the court is plus one. Each ball he or she
misses or cannot retrieve is minus one. Once the player reaches plus
twenty, the drill is complete. Although the returning player will
soon tire, coaches should stress strong fundamentals and effort.
Points within long matches can run long and those who are strong in
the end will succeed.
