Foreign level play comes with not understanding what sort of position you're in so this common tendency we're going to talk about bailing out at the wrong time feeling pressure and feeling like oh my gosh I have to pull the trigger I think beginners don't recognize how many points are being won by unforced errors.

Compared to four stairs and at the end of the day everybody puts their socks on the same way everybody makes mistakes so I think um you know they're they're not understanding that if I put one more ball back in play uh from a neutralizing standpoint not trying to be offensive then good things can happen my key phrases is get one more ball back in.

Play and good things will happen so I guess what I'm trying to say is that anytime you're off balance anytime you're playing defense and you're sitting there thinking shoot should I pull the trigger think the other direction and and and let's and let's focus on being a bit more disciplined and um trying to neutralize and get up.

To the kitchen line um Kyle things that you see here yeah I think when we use the term bailout like Tyson said it's really just we're not in the ideal position oftentimes we don't know what to do so Instinct just takes over and we just think ah panic and then we just hit it hard and just figure well I'll either win the point or lose the point right.

Here but let's just see what happens and so we want to improve our pickleball IQ to make it an instinct that anytime uh we're not in an ideal position or anytime we're feeling pressure to trust our defense not to try to play offense when we're in a defensive position and try to cut any Corners so um I think especially in the Pro level uh the.

Direction that we're seeing the game go is really high level Defenders those are consistently the teams that make it on the podium yeah I think too anytime you're looking to speed up your partner has to have a general idea that you're speeding up because how many times do you bail out when you're out of position and then that counter attack goes at.

Your partner but your partner's not ready for it and then all of a sudden they end up with a plastic tattoo on their chest so um just keep in mind that you're you're only going to speed up obviously when you can take all those boxes when you're stable when you're in the correct location and then when you're in yellow.

But there's no need to be selfish and speed up at the wrong time or to bail out at the wrong time and then now put your partner in a in a very bad spot okay so for the first drill guys we're gonna have uh myself being the teacher Tyson's gonna go ahead and be the student here my job is to hit some semi-aggressive more push stink style uh.

Trying to move him side to side what Tyson's trying to train is his Instinct that as he's moving as he's establishing position a little bit off balance that all he needs to do is just make sure that he's locking that wrist and popping that ball up very shallow so we want to use the term shallow that's why we've positioned the court the cones about.

Midway between the kitchen line and the net because we want him to use his height height will give him a high percentage of making sure he makes the shot as well as giving him time to get back in that ideal position all right I'm trying to move him that famous Tyson McGuffin lateral movement we're really going to put that.

To the test here pretend that was in sorry sorry versus this is this is me bailing out okay it's it's tough for me obviously to get ready for his counter-attack as my weight's going that way I'm basically saying here I'm basically saying hey I'm just gonna bail out and see what happens.

But when I bail out not only am I am I am I in a bad spot but now it's one versus two what's the likelihood of us winning the point as is one versus two yeah slim unless you win the point right there you probably lose the point okay so working a few more here yeah I'd call that a One-Shot Wonder notice Tyson's height he's playing with.

Plenty of margin and again that's giving him time to re-establish so every time he plays it he's coming back and getting right in the middle so he doesn't know which direction I'm gonna go and he wants to be equidistant between each of the spots that I might hit second progression on this drill is going to be the same thing but Tyson's.

Gonna step back a couple of feet into transition I would say when we think about bailout shots or using aggression at the wrong time this is one of the most suspect areas for a lot of beginner and intermediate players okay very challenging to choose the right ball to speed up from here nine times out of ten the appropriate shot is just to play a.

Shot with margin more of a lifting style either half volley or reset shot to give yourself time to neutralize when we try to speed up from here we're usually trying to cut corners and it doesn't normally work out very well okay so guys he's gonna go back and work him around there so Tyson's mentality in addition to just.

Wanting to get that ball up is making sure that he's not getting beat by the net here right we'd love for this to land shallow in the kitchen and be nice and unattackable but we also know that just getting one more ball back in play works at a lot of levels uh what not to do what not to do.

Or forehand side yeah okay guys so for the first uh game that we're gonna do to try to help us if we struggle with bailing out in transition is I'm going to be starting up here at the uh at the kitchen line I'm going to be the feeder and I'm gonna feed a semi-aggressive ball one side or the other to Tyson Tyson's going to be in.

The transition zone and if we were thinking of of doing this for a lower level I'm just going to go ahead drop it feed it aggressive if Tyson makes it back in the kitchen I'm gonna catch it and that's where the point's gonna end and he's done his job okay so let's just do a couple of those on the lower levels put a little okay perfect all right one.

For one and maybe we do ten of these perfect good height two for two excellent three for three perfect four for four we'll do five here look at that with them oh look at that with the wind and everything okay so I would say at the beginner levels maybe practice doing 10 and keeping track of how many are you getting in play out of.

Ten remember it's better to miss long not quite making it in the kitchen than to let the net beat you okay um so next uh next game for a slightly higher level it's going to be very similar I'm still going to do kind of a drop feed here that's semi-aggressive Tyson's gonna look to pop that ball up get that height going on that ball to.

Give himself time to establish and then we're just going to play out the point from there right here we go okay here we go play that point out nice nice oh perfect here we go here we go all right zero one Ernie you had it yeah you know where I'm going.

No I was there dang it moving to it okay oh two oh two very nice approach too good all right zero three zero three we'll play a couple more we'll play to five here oh to get you there all right one three I'm coming back I'm coming for him here we go.

Very nice no getting fancy getting fancy trust the process get here all right one four all right let's play the five let's play five one four here look at the height still working his way in okay now he's neutralized okay let's just stop there yeah perfect.
