Getting Behind the Ball

Many shots are missed because the player didn’t get behind the ball. That means taking the extra energy necessary to step into the ball’s path so your body is aligned to have the best control for a return shot. This is especially important with diagonal dinking in the kitchen. Even though you will have to quickly return to a neutral position, you’ll have much better control if you step to where you need to be.

You’ll find standing low with your knees bent is helpful. That way, you only have to jump up and sideways, rather than having to get low before you can move.
