Curriculum

I'm continually improving technically and tactically. I coach 'fact based' tennis instruction, my learning never stops and is a reason i love to coach tennis. My number 1 principal is to stay injury free through efficient stroking patterns My number 2 principal is to have FUN! Video is used within lessons to help demonstrate a players strengths and adjustments for improvement . When video is presented along with a simple description of the kinetic chain, (our linked muscular and skeletal body systems) and how it operates efficiently, learning accelerates and improvement is imminent! Learning and improvement needs to be fun and interesting, add hard work and reach your goals!
