SET UP: We know how excited you are to get your Training Football, HnTv1 or HnTv2. We have made set up FAST and SIMPLE. Upon receiving your ball, HnTv1 or HnTv2, please inspect and ensure that all elements (BALL and BAG; Batteries should be installed for HnTv1 and HnTv2) are without damage from shipping or opening, if you have issues with damage call me, Coach Tom Creguer (Cray-jur) personally at 989-400-7273.
STEP 2- Watch the SET UP VIDEO for HnTv1 below HnTv2 are installed and need to have a clear pull tab removed (yes, it should have been colored-messed that up). If you did not receive batteries, that means they are already installed. IF you have batteries in package, remove the battery cap from the power source by taking a coin and stacking ALL FOUR provided batteries "+" side up in the compartment. Be aware that if the ALL FOUR batteries are not placed in the correct order the buzzer will not work. Go TRAIN, COMPETE, REPEAT!
Start with the basic of teaching your athletes to make a PEACE SIGN with their Index and Middle finger and SPLIT them with the tip of the ball. WIDEN the fingers out and think SURFACE AREA CONTACT with the wrist and the hand. Especially if you have smaller hands this technique will magnify your effectiveness.
After you start teaching the SPLIT, please teach the athlete to train with the HnT logo on their forearm so they can see an "X" with the seams of the ball between the Index and Middle finger. This awareness in training will condition the athlete to know what the most stable hold feels like. Just like a QB doesn't look for the laces, a ball carrier, with training can feel if they have the seams of the ball against their body. The seams between the body keep the athlete from compressing the ball to the chest because it is the strongest part of the ball and cannot be squeezed. The ball will literally pivot or rotate when the seams of the ball are between their body.
Strive to train them with PANEL TO FOREARM and PANEL TO CHEST for awareness of the perfect hold.
Next remember that we are all a product of habits that come from repetitions. The athletes need to work on carrying the ball HIGHandTIGHT as often as possible in any time of the practice. They need to have others HEAR THEM GET BETTER!
God Bless and train well.
