Coach 1 (SSC1)
Coach 1 trains the athlete to maximize the starting acceleration with resulting speeds that allows the athlete to position more quickly, thus enabling better control of the muscle groups involved in executing a stroke, a kick, a catch, a toss or other complex movements. SSC1 provides remote selection of drills, levels of difficulty and many other features from distance of up to 100+ feet. The rechargeable battery eliminates the need for AC power on the field or court and up to 16 one hour sessions before recharging. Size: 3" by 7" by 15"
Coach 2 (SSC2)
Coach 2 takes many of the features from our top of the line product, but makes for a competitively priced product. Remote Control operation provides simple control of the beep loudness, directional LEDs brightness as well as drill selection and difficulty. The rechargeable battery provides up to 25 hours of continuous use and the battery can be recharged up to 1000 times. Size 2" by 4" by 9"
Coach 3 (SSC3)
Economical tool for inside training with 10 progressive-skill drills and 3 levels of difficulty. There are two push buttons on the rear of the unit for selecting drills and difficulty. The unit is battery operated with external charger and will operate for over 10 hours on a full charge. The charger will run the unit and charge the battery at the same time thus providing a safety backup in case the unit was not charged. The unit can hang from fences, tennis nets, backs of chairs, soccer nets, and also mounts to tripods that can raise the viewing for large groups. Size 2" by 4" by 5"
i-PAD Adapter (IPA)
This simple holding bracket allows the coach to mount their i-PAD to the back of the SSC1 chassis and point the i-PAD camera at the athletes as they perform the selected drills. Used in conjunction with the Video Option the athlete & coach can obtain precise information as to whether the player is late or early in performing different aspects of a movement.
Video Option (VO)
This video option is used with the SSC1 and allows coaches to video tape students and a small LED indicator, which is illuminated when the split-step should be executed. This allows the coach to determine whether the athlete is hopping early or late (or not at all). A 100' extension cable allows the camera and Video Option to operate anywhere on the court while video taping the athlete. This option works with both the SSC1 and the Playmate Timing Light.
Enhanced Tennis Twist (ET2)
ET2 provides a modern teaching tool for coaches associated with the USTA U10 Training programs or similar youth training. There are 8 timed footwork drills, which allows coaches to teach the youngest of our players how to do the split step. ET2 can be used with the youth orange and green color balls as well as the standard yellow balls. RED balls are to large to work in the chute.
Ball Machine Timing Light (BMTL)
Using the Timing Light portion of the Split Step Coach, shown here with a Playmate tennis ball machine, we can extend the SSC movement drills to hitting real balls with a wide variety of patterns of play, thus take our sensory-motor training to the next level. These new training devices allow consistent repetition of a wide host of patterns of play, tailored to the drills the coach and player feel are important.
Ball Cart Timing Light (BCTL)
This training tool enables the teaching professional similar advantages to the Timing Light used on a ball machine. The Coach can develop the following movements using this device: 1)vertical hop, 2)landing on the offside foot, 3)moving to various hitting positions, 4)developing a swing at an imaginary ball and 5) developing swings for a live ball to various locations on the court.
The 'Advantage' maintains a firm wrist by limiting the movement of the wrist while you develop the muscle memory during the formative stages of development. It also overcomes bad habits and allows proper execution of new strokes.
The 'Advantage' for younger players is much smaller, but still maintains a firm wrist by limiting the movement of the wrist while you develop the muscle memory during the formative stages of development. It also eliminates younger players from developing bad habits.
