    No Safeties Allowed

    I've come across certain rules where I was "not allowed" to play a safety, but who's to say whether a shot I chose was a safety or not? I could "accidentally" miscue or hit a shot so bad that it ends up in a safety. I could argue that I was going for the shot because nobody else knows what my...

    Training Device with Immediate Feedback

    How beneficial do you think it would be to have a wearable device that gives instant feedback on your stroke? For example, you get a small vibration if you twist your wrist, or a sound if your backstroke was jerky. You could also store the data from a number of strokes to analyze your...

    Lesson with Jerry Briesath

I particularly enjoyed his knowledge of positioning off of a ball in the jaws of a pocket (hangers). If you get an opportunity to take a lesson from Jerry...

    Shot Clock Idea

    In chess tournaments, you have a given amount of time for the entire game, instead of per shot. After you make your move, you hit your clock and your opponent's time starts. If you run out of time, you lose. I wonder if this type of shot clock could be used for reducing slow play, without...

We gave them 3 different days within the 2 weeks that we could play, but even with 4 substitutes on their...
