Practicing with your Eye Coach
Q: How long should I practice in a session?
A: No more than 10 minutes. That is equal to 90 minutes hitting on a court.
Q: Can I use the Eye Coach for warming up?

Q: Can I hit full speed with ground strokes, volleys and approach shots?
A: Yes – you can, and should, practice at exactly the intensity you are going to play – the Eye Coach will absorb the top spin you apply. However, you should begin at half speed until you can get 10 solid hits in a row before you increase the speed.
Q: When should I look up or over to insure balance at contact?
A: Just after contact or when the racket passes your eye.
Q: If it’s stationary, can the Eye Coach help me with my footwork and getting to balls across the court?
A: Yes – tracking from across the net is instinctive. We do it naturally. The problem is we focus too soon. The Eye Coach re-trains your brain to not stop tracking until the last 3 feet. In this way your eye is focusing only at the contact point just like the pros. That is the breakthrough and why we need an Eye Coach at home.
Using the Eye Coach with groups and multiple players
Q: How many students can train with a coach on the machine?
A: You can use a single Eye Coach to train up to 8 students. 8 students will hit as many balls in 5 minutes
as 3 and 6 will hit as many as 2, compared to feeding the ball by hand or racket.
Q: Can different level players practice at the same time and get the same benefit?
A: Absolutely yes. Beginner and advanced players can practice at the same time. Both get a great workout and improve with equal speed. In fact it’s even better when 2 practice at the same time!
