I have been working with one of the local high school players on his game. he is somewhere between a 4.0-4.5 and is hoping to play d-III next year. Based on my college experience, he could find a decent school where he could play at the bottom of the ladder, or at worst make the team. He has a strong serve, but an extremely low toss. At its peak, it is probably at the lowest he can hit it and get full extension (actually his second serve toss is better, and higher than his first). He has very good timing and gets full extension often, but sometimes does not. We have been working on getting a higher toss, but he has been having a lot of trouble with his timing. he is getting good wood on the ball, but is lacking directional and distance accuracy. I suspect two things 1. he is not practicing enough or 2. five years of bad habits are tough to break. My suggestion to him has been to toss the ball higher and further into the court and really launch into the ball (his toss was low, so even though he landed well within the baseline when he jumped, he didn't throw it out that far). This way, he will still get good stick on the ball and extend. Do you people have any other suggestions? I have also noted that his higher toss has led to more spin, but when this happens, he is not getting much pace on it, and it sits up. Thanks for the help.
