First part of the assessment is to have a peer video tape you performing the forehand stroke. Prior to the assessment, we talked about the four areas to take a closer look at (set up, contact point, open face of the racket, and lastly the followthrough.
I find that watching yourself on tape allows a different perspective for scholars. From my experience playing sports or working out at the gym, sometimes seeing myself can really help me fix any mechanical flaws. After watching their video, scholars are given a rubric to help breakdown the different aspects of the forehand stroke. Scholars watch their video and score themselves. After they are finished, the next step is to give Mr. G some feedback about how they think they did. The more detailed analysis the better.
