5263, Why do you feel Smart Targets have to be triangles. As you know several coaches, I included, are late to the game in really testing your theories which is why I was silent on that long thread on Smart Targets which is closed so I have to ask you here. You already sold me on the importance of the mid court ball and my students love your theories which I learned to teach better with, given they had better results. I was not convinced that these smart targets were worth taking a good look at for a while but I'm late to the party meaning I did not really test it until recently even though we are friends on opposite coasts. The question that coaches here in Ojai and Ventura are asking me is why are they triangles and not semi-circles? Why did you decide to go with triangles instead of circles or semicircles. I normally throw hula hoops or rubber 12" circles on the court but now I have to admit I like the spacing but it took a while for me to figure it out. Would semi circles work better? We are curious to hear your response given I used to put circles down in each corner 12 inches in from service box and 18 inches inside the service tee to have the player hit at their feet and try to never given them a chance to swing from their heels.
