Values and Warm-Up Activities
Doyle begins by explaining how she teaches values, which includes methods like creating vision boards and simple add-ins like warming-up to music. Prior to a warm-up, she has her female athletes select a positive affirmation card, which features a gemstone along with a trait of a quality tennis player that they want to emulate and add to their own game.
For warm-up activities, you'll see how to incorporate coordination claps, a crab walk routine, volley dance, up & downs, and throw tennis drill that prepare females physically and mentally for competition. These exercises allow athletes to warm-up in a more meaningful, connected, and engaged way.
