Follow the Ball

Tips & Tricks

Teammates need to move in sync and follow the direction of the ball in order to close holes and cut off angles, especially in a dink battle. High-level teammates will typically be covering 50-60% of one side of the court, depending on which side of the court the ball is moving into. Skilled players are adept at flicking and directing shots through openings left by teammates. Moving in sync in the direction of the ball makes it harder for those holes to develop.
