*OPA PRO TIP: When searching for instructional videos on the internet, be sure to follow-up with PRACTICE. It’s not enough to watch videos and think you can mimic the same skills without stepping foot on the court. Videos may boost your self-esteem and confidence, but nothing replaces the actual feeling of making contact with the ball.
