Sports Split Step Tennis (App1)

The Sports Split Step Tennis App (APPLE, ANDROID) contains movement drills that allows the athlete to improve their acceleration and speed of movement in a progressively challenging manner. Emphasis on seeing, anticipating, hearing and then reacting provides a process by which all athletes can increase their sensory-motor skills, something referred to as  Reaction-Based Training.
