Here is an outline of how I can help you to achieve your tennis dreams and goals:
Step 1: Initial Review
My first session is a review. It’s like taking your car in for a full inspection. I’ll check your grips, sets, drops, transfers, etc.. The more advanced a player you are and the higher your aspirations, the more detailed my analysis.
If you are just starting out, my goal in the first session is to give you an overview that will give you the basics on grips, swing patterns, and point construction. What’s great about this is that, whether we do additional sessions or not, you will have a foundation of knowledge. You’ll recognize what we discussed in the pro players you see on TV and have this frame of reference to evaluate other coaching tips.
At this level, you’ve likely been playing many years. Perhaps you’re in a league or on a high school team. You’d like to bump things up to the next level, and you need someone to sort through all the tips you’ve gotten over the years and give it to you clear and straight. In this session, I’ll review your strokes and evaluate how you put points together in some live ball hitting and give you specific recommendations and a 90-Day Improvement Plan by email within 48hrs of our session. You will be able to utilize this whether we continue on together or not.
Advanced (College Level/Pro Level)
You’ve trained for thousands upon thousands of hours in your tennis life, if you’re at this level. Still, technical flaws, footwork issues, missed opportunities tactically, and mental restraints need to be identified with practical solutions. In the Initial Review, we’ll go through all aspects of your game (technical, physical, tactical, mental), and pinpoint what you need to do to get to the next level.
Step 2: Pick your Lesson Package
Assuming we decide we are a good fit for each other and I have space in my schedule for ongoing sessions, you may then choose among several packages.
| Playing Level
| Progress Package
Step 3: Set Our Goals and Get to Work!
Our first step will be to establish clear outcomes for our time together. This usually means having a primary focus and one to two other outcomes. We should both expect reasonable progress related to these outcomes.
