Video Access - Pietie Coetzee-Turner - The Block Method: Teaching the Drag Flick

Coetzee-Turner is a self-taught drag flick specialist. With more than 20 years of international playing experience and 15 of those mastering the drag flick, she has developed a simple method to teach athletes a rather complicated skill. The steps followed to learn the skill is broken down and can be trained in blocks. Once a block is mastered the player moves on to the next block. When all the steps are complete and all the blocks are put together this makes a very complicated skill much easier to master. Coetzee-Turner’s way of teaching is simple yet very effective. Along the way you can also expect to get detailed information you can only get from someone who has mastered the skill. She will introduce some vital short cuts that will make a huge difference when teaching your players the drag flick.
