For now during this pandemic, team play and even 1-on-1 play has to be avoided. But you can still workout while social distancing. Here are many good individual drills that players can do on their own. Create a weekly schedule, selecting some drills that you do every day, and some that you rotate 2-3 times/week. Work on your weaknesses!.
