Don't Telegraph Slide Positions
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Just as in football a quarterback wouldn't want to stare down an intended receiver before throwing the ball, you don't want to show what slide position you are moving to until it is actually time to move there. This issue is something I notice mostly with younger students. As a result of indecisiveness, the players starts moving the slide too early and with a lack of confidence. You should either be in one position or confidently moving to the next. Have no question marks in the slide motion.
