  5. How to Navigate

    • Colors indi­cate grade — dark green indi­cates a per­fect touch, yel­low indi­cates medi­um, and red indi­cates an error. All touch­es will be some­where between dark green and dark red.
    • Dots indi­cate the loca­tion where a touch hap­pened. In the case of attacks, a dot will indi­cate both where the attack orig­i­nat­ed and where it ended. 
    • Lines indi­cate the ball tra­jec­to­ry. If a line ends in a dot, it means the ball actu­al­ly went to that loca­tion on the court. Lines that don’t end in a dot indi­cate the ball didn’t actu­al­ly go to that loca­tion. For exam­ple, say a ball was attacked and touched by a block­er. In this sce­nario, the line would indi­cate where the attack would have gone had it not been touched by the block, and doesn’t end in a dot because the ball didn’t actu­al­ly reach that point on the court.
