Agree, but the essential part is that the corrections are made and the technical continuity is enforced. Too much harm done when the coaches send kids off to play matches with no basis for efficient, repeatable technique and allow the technique to erode in matches to the point where you end up starting again each technical lesson, or the player never develops beyond basic 'bunting' the ball over the net.

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get from the work you didn't do...
