I will be discussing the sport of tennis, the learning sequences, the skill techniques, learning cues, and teaching styles in that order. First that will be discussed is the learning sequences for the sport of tennis. According to Physical Education Activity Handbook, when you are first getting started with tennis, you need to introduce the scoring and tiebreaker procedures. Next, you need to explain the equipment used in tennis such as tennis balls and the racket. After that, the teacher should explain the rules and etiquette. It is best to introduce when directly related to skill or strategy being taught. Then, the skills and techniques should be taught. The skills and techniques that need to be taught are grips, strokes, the serve, …show more content…
The last portion of this stroke is the follow through. The learning cues for this stroke are ready position, racket face vertical, and follows through. The two-handed backhand uses basically the same aspects as the one-handed backhand. The only difference is the grip is obviously two handed and the backswing will look different because it is two-handed. The learning cues for this stroke are ready position, two handed, and follow through. Stroke number four is the forehand. For the forehand to be correct the player should be in the ready position. During the backswing, the player should turn the shoulders and the left shoulder should be faced towards the ball that is coming towards the player. The next portion of the forehand is that the player step with the left foot and that the racket and knees drop down together. The player must then make impact with the ball with the racket face vertical. Last, the player must follow through. The learning cues for the forehand are ready position, shoulder position, step, and follow through. Another stroke that must be taught is the lob. It is said that the lob should look very similar to the forehand and backhand strokes. Making it look like those strokes the player wants to lift the ball high into the air and aiming towards the opponent’s baseline. The learning cues for the lob are ready position, forehand/backhand, lift, and aim. The

The feedback system that not only allows you to know when and if you’ve achieved the goal, but also holds out the hope of potentially achieving the goal in increasingly satisfying ways: in fewer strokes, or against more players.
The first phase of the stance is the placing of your feet. The feet should be shoulder width apart for the majority of shots. They should be moved closer together for lofted irons and farther apart for long irons and woods. The right foot should be pointing straight away from the body, and the left foot should be pointed one quarter turn towards the target. This foot placement automatically regulates the amount of hip turn allowed in the backswing. The arms should be tucked into the body and kept as close together as possible. The left elbow should be pointing to the left hipbone and the right elbow to the right hipbone. The golfer should then assume the "semi sitting position." This is achieved by keeping the upper body erect and the back straight, while bending the knees to attain a sitting feel. The golfer should lower his waist approximately two inches from standing upright. The final point of proper posture is the inward pointing of the knees. They should be slightly pointed towards each other.
If you are right handed then make sure your left hand is near the bottom of the stick but not all of the way at the bottom. Also put your right hand a good distance above your left hand ,and put it near the top of the net ,but not all of the way at the top. Furthermore if you are left handed then put your right hand near the bottom of the stick, but not all of the way at the bottom. Also put your left hand a good distance above your right hand. Almost at the top of the stick but not all of the way. You're also going to put the stick on your dominate side (ride handed or left handed).
Tennis is a game of speed and reflex. It uses a lot of muscle memory. You need to be able to move quickly and effectively to reach the ball quickly and hit it. Thus it takes quick reaction time and reflexes to play at higher levels. Tennis drills and practices train your muscles to react faster, smoothly and naturally. During fast volley bouts your muscles often react
The goal of this lesson is for my students to understand the fundamentals of completing a successful bump, set, spike, and underhand serve. These aspects will be important when working with their teammates in a positive manner to complete these tasks and use these components to be successful in game play.
Instead of having my students warm up by jogging through the cones, I should have had them grab a paddle and a ball and bounce it in general space so that they had a feeling of the weight of the paddle. I feel that my students had ampule amount of practice time. They practiced hitting back forth, then with a bounce, then with no bounce, then in teams.
The key to a great shot is to grip your racquet firmly. Many shots will fall short because of an improper grip and the racquet ends up at the wrong angle when it actually makes contact with the ball. A firm grip will make your shots faster and more accurate. Using the wall to your advantage is one of your best defenses.
The server should hold the racket in his or her right hand, holding the right arm straight toward the ground. The racket hand should point in the direction of the net. The server should hold the ball in his or her left hand, touching the ball to the racket face.
The past weeks we have been learning how to juggle in class with three tennis balls. We were given the balls and were told to juggle with no instruction. However, there were a few people in the class that were able to juggle because they were taught at a younger age or already knew how to do so. We were trying to get through the three stages of motor learning, cognitive, associative, and automaticity stages.
For the warm-ups before practice I will have the players start by running these drills to get the blood flowing: The Courier Drill, Spiders, and Cross Court line touches. After this practice will commence with various stroke preparation drills such as cross-court/down the line and a point blank volleying drill to develop better hand-eye coordination and racquet preparation. In the cross-court/down the line drill there will be four people to each court and players on opposite sides of the court will plays five point games while alternating drop serves. One player is only allowed to hit the ball cross-court while the other player is allowed to hit the ball
Now that I have given the first tennis lesson, I can assess the player’s fundamental skills and apparent grasp of my instructions. Every strength that has been shown at this early stage should be commented on. The player should be proud of what they have essentially done instinctively well. Then I carry out only very general improvements as the lesson continues: “bend your knees, step forward as you swing, remember to keep your wrist straight”. (These suggestions may seem specific but are really very general for tennis). Each time something is done correctly it should be positively reinforced. The next step in writing should be similar. The teacher reads the pieces privately and focuses on strengths and general content improvements rather than specific grammatical issues. What is the key point of this story about family vacation?
