Taking a practice day and dedicating it to individual instruction is hard work for the coach, but it's incredibly rewarding for the players on your team. It also helps break up a week of team practices and allows the players to take a step back and re-focus on the fundamentals.

By using one-on-one or two-on-one sessions with your players, you have extra time to focus in on fixing grips, improving stroke biomechanics and sharing valuable observations up close, reinforcing your teaching points using iPad video.
