When a player has problems with the 3 fundamentals, I must evaluate the best remedy for the player in front of my. It is not always the same. It is never the same lesson. In this case, this player could not get the ball off the ground with any degree of consistency. The remedy… 2 words… Weight Forward. I explained what the player was doing, showed him the video, showed him a comparison of his issue and our model’s proficiency in demonstrating Weight Forward, prescribed the fix and this is what happened in a just a few minutes of practice.
Success! The player was able to consistently get the ball airborne and control where the ball was going. More work to be done but a great start!
