Tip by Tim Eyre, Ogden, Utah.
We do a drill called 1:2:1 to help teach mental toughness in stringing points together. Team A serves to team B. If team A wins the rally they are given a free ball. If team A wins that rally they are given another free ball to play out, again if they win that rally they now have the chance to serve for a point. if at any time team B wins any of the rallies, the ball switches sides and team B becomes the serving team. One team must score four times in a row to win a point.
We will usually stay in each rotation for 1-3 points depending on how much work that rotation needs.
This is a great drill for teaching mental toughness, making smart shots and teaching your team to string points together.
