The “chip & charge” is almost a lost art. As we’ve seen the modern game take over the past few years it’s getting more difficult to approach the net. However, in today’s lesson we’re turning the clock back a bit as Brady demonstrates how this play is particularly effective against a pusher.
Pushers play radically different from your typical player, so it makes sense that you will employ strategies against them that you would not normally use. In today’s lesson, Brady demonstrates how approaching directly at a pusher can be quite effective.
Pushers are typically very fast…sometimes so fast that you have to use their speed against them. In today’s video Brady demonstrates a play that utilizes hitting “behind” a pusher.
A pusher loves one thing more than anything else: time. If you give a pusher plenty of time to chase down a ball, they ultimately will. In today lesson, Brady discusses how to effectively take time away from a pusher without racking up unforced errors.
Overhitting is one of the most common mistakes players make against the dreaded “pusher”. In today’s lesson Brady discusses how you can still play aggressively without overhitting.
