20-BALL SUICIDE




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.
