Jan – Easter 2020      
Raw Performance 1 & 2,  Developing  &   Emerging  Squads      
                         
Overall themes                     
                         
Setting standards to players:                  
                         
Time keeping (explain importance of being on time)              
Shadow upon arrival (initial warm up – specific practice)              
After shadow, if still waiting practice serves or skill work              
Sweeping rota (could do even if second session of evening – discipline)            
Players to take turns to lead warm ups (5 minutes) (maybe extend) share ideas          
Players to take turns to lead stretching – introducing new stretches each week          
Goal setting for all groups                    
Controlling the controllables and being accountable for own losses / mistakes          
Shuttles in lines / clean hall                    
                         
Consistency (To be reviewed at half term)                
                         
Can be player lead to a certain extent                   
Serving - MUST be able to singles, doubles, mixed serve into different areas with good quality      
ROS - need at least 2/3 really reliable returns for each event that players are confident with at key times    
Serving and returning to be done in small chunks but more often during sessions (outside sessions too)      
                         
For all the below lots of shadow needed so in the correct postions and shapes to give best possible       
chance for good technique                    
                         
Forecourt - straight net and cross net in all events                
Lift / flick off                      
Cut outs - have done previously but need to do more and less mistakes            
                         
Midcourt - more work on drives / defence. Longer rallies, more quantity            
Turning the shuttle in defence / drives / pushes (margins)              
                         
Overhead - biggest area… look at different movement types with variety of shots          
Variations of clears, smashes and drops                  
Similarly to last term - players need to continue to work on overhead technique if needed        
Girls singles especially to focus on returns of high singles serves            
Slices & reverses to become 'standard' shots rather than 'special' shots especially for dev/eme & raw p1      
                         
Link in tactics to all the above                    
                         
Notes                        
Players must be honest and identify areas of current weaknesses even in simple areas / shots      
Players to review after 6 weeks and highlight areas that still need work            
Coaches to re-enforce importance of 'going back to basics' and mindset of working on basics        
Link in closely with goal setting and set own standards              
For all groups players must increase consistency on simple shots, and confidence in repeating shots       
during rallies                      
Be able to increase rally length and able to competently move opponent to all areas of the court      
                         
In order to play consistent shots both technique and movement should be strong enough to hold up       
at speed and under pressure. Set exercises for this                
Reminder to players on importance of 'feeding' as whatever shots are being 'fed' are actually       
practice if done properly                    
                         
Raw ID and Raw p2 more multi shuttle work and focus on movement patterns.           
Still check these but more single shuttle work with dev/eme              
                         
Lots of little competitions to make interesting fun and competitive, with bit of pressure        
                         
NOTES:                        
Commitment to BJBA and the county should be pushed from all angles            
From last season - attendance! Coaches must push the importance of consistency in attendance      
All shots are practice rather than feeding. Coaches to join in where appropirate          
Many single shuttle rallies but mixed with multifeed too              
Coaches to set aside time for individual goals & push the importance of setting goals and reviewing them    
Link in goals to this topic                    
Assistant coaches and feeders to be more procative during sessions            
Aim to find videos of example (and use projector)?
