Cross Court Warm-up

This warm-up drill is an exercise designed to get the footwork, timing and cross-court consistency in sync. This should be done at the beginning of the lesson.

It is also ideal for coaches looking to feed balls from the basket while viewing the players stroke production, technique and footwork.

1. The player is simply moving side to side as the coach feeds balls alternating from side to side.

2. The player must go cross-court and find their rhythm.

3 This drill is best begun at around the 3/4 court area (half way between the service line and baseline) and then the player should move back to the baseline once they have their eye-in (as shown in the diagram).

A good drill to transition into afterwards would be the down-the-line warm-up drill.
