Middle

When receiving a serve he would only ever hit the shuttle down the centre of the court and his set up the opposition for an easy return shot which meant that he lost a lot of points through bad shot return. His smash attempts were not very powerful and he was unable to control them so mostly they ended up over the back line or in the net. When playing with a team mate he became greedy and came across court to get to the shuttle and this left his part of the court open to an easy return this is a big flaw and lost him every game he played with a team mate. When on his own he became less involved in the game and did not chase the shuttle down if he thought it was out of reach he would leave it even though he could have made it to the right position easily. Against players who were good at badminton he was completely beaten and he could not play back. Against players who were not very good he could take control of the game and win. Overall the player is not too bad at badminton and I don't think he could improve much more than the level he is currently at. Choice of sport to continue training After evaluating the candidate at both of the sports, basketball and badminton, I have decided that there is little more he can learn in badminton yet he can improve immensely in basketball. This is why I have chosen basketball for the sport that I will continue to train him in. ...read more.

Conclusion

Crossover Dribbles Dribble with your right hand. Bounce the ball once on the right side, then cross the ball over in front of you by bouncing it to the left. The left hand now bounces it on the left once, and then crossover back to the right, where the right takes over again. Repeat this procedure. Sideline Moves Drill Dribble cross-court with right hand and back with left. Change ways in dribbling ball e.g. stutter, low run, low bounce, etc. Quick Pass This drill is a fast paced passing and concentration drill. It requires good hand eye coordination and fast hands. Take 1 ball and throw it against a wall. as soon as the ball hits the wall throw the other ball at the exact position and catch the first one. do this for as long as possible. Two Ball Dribbling Drill This drill is designed to better yourself as a ball handler. To make your hand speed quicker, to have more control, and to be able to dribble with both hands. This enables your ball handling to be like a second nature. Without even thinking about moves or looking at the ball you will just react to a defender's move and your instincts will take over. In this drill all you will do is dribble in a circle for 30 seconds with two basketballs. Using every move you can think of or even can't think of. It doesn't matter. At first it is all right to look down at the basketballs while doing this drill, but after a while to better your self you will have to keep your head up. Do between 2 or 3 sets of this a day (going as fast as you can and staying low as possible). ...read more.
