Blocked, Random and Serial Teaching Practices and Transferring Performance to Matches

In this episode, we dive into why players are not able to transfer performance from practice to matches, and it is not always anxiety (or at least that is not the core issue needing change). How we practice determines in large part how we will perform. We discuss the differences in blocked, random, and serial practice and make a case for when and why to use each of these teaching practices. We give you specific tennis examples for each and emphasize the need to use each of these teaching practices wisely.
