Pickleball Third Shot Drill-Volume Three


What do three strikes have to do
with developing drop shot consistency. Stay tuned. Hey everybody it’s CJ Johnson. This is our final video
in the drop shot series. In the first one we
talked about fundamentals. Then in the next two I gave you a couple
of drills that are designed to develop skills and to build on each other.
If you missed any of those videos, make sure that you stick around to the
end and I will share a link so you can go back and review those. If you’re like
me, you may have a case of FOMO, If that sounds like you and you want
to make sure you know everything about pickleball, including drills,
instruction, gear, fitness, make sure that you click the
subscribe button and then the bell. That way you’ll never miss
another video from this channel. Three strikes isn’t just for baseball. In this drill we are trying to see how
many consecutive unattackable drop shots we can hit before we
accumulate three strikes. In this drill one player is at the
non-volley zone and the other is at the baseline. The player at the non-volley zone
“pitches” the ball to the “batter” who’s standing at the baseline. Begin counting consecutive drops once
the first ball lands in the kitchen. Keep counting until you hit the first
ball into the net or past the non-volley zone. That’s your first strike. Start over and repeat the drill
until you get three strikes. The highest number of consecutively
hit drop shots is your score for that “inning”. If you want a little less challenge, start at the center of the court
and then work your way backwards. If you want a little bit more challenge, only count unattackable balls as “runs”. That means the apex of the bounce
is below the net. If you’d like, even more challenge, the player at the non-volley zone should
attack anything that bounces high. If you missed any of the
