To properly answer your question it would be helpful to know what
you are trying to accomplish, how many of these clinics (once,
weekly for 10 weeks, etc) and the level of play, how many courts
you have available, and how many assistants you have.
I remember working with a group of about 20 high school kids with a
huge range of ability on two courts. I had one assistant.
When the range is large, you want to rely largely on fun feeding
drills. Pure live ball won't work. But, it is important to make it as
"live" as possible.
I always used double feeding in two columns on two courts, and just
simple running and hitting drills for a warm up.
Then I would set up competitive play with players moving up and
down courts, with a champion and challenger side. I would feed to
the challenger, and make the feed at different levels of difficulty
depending on the level of both the champion and the challenger.
There is a wonderful game we play in our area called
Offense/Defense which kids of ALL levels play competitively and
LOVE. If anyone here needs the details of this game, I could post it.
Hope this is of some help.
