I am familiar with TAUT and have gone to a number of play days and workshops. I utilize a ton of this stuff in practice. I don't believe that a player needs to be as skilled as your description above to find playing half court with red balls unchallenging. Red balls/Orange balls are a great teaching tool. But for talented young players who hit well on the full court I can't see the logic in mandating they play at a artificial low level. The better kids I work with don't want to play with the slow balls. They find it boring. They are flat out too good.
