Tip of the week: The Overhead
For the overhead, point to the ball with your free hand.
There are a number of important benefits to using your free hand to point at the ball on an overhead.
First, pointing at the ball helps you keep your body sideways before you make contact with the ball. Secondly, it helps you gauge where the ball is in the air so you can move to the ball. Finally, and most importantly, it will help you keep your head up when you make contact with the ball.
