Develop The Vision.
It all starts with you getting a clear vision of what type of tennis program, that you want to build.
Picture in your mind, how you want your program to look in 3 years and then in 6 years, down the road.
Your vision plan for your program, should be written out and then posted up in your office.
Set Team Goals.
At the start of every season, set team goals together with your team.
Ask them to take part in the planning and come up with some ideas for your goals for that season.
Never lower your goals either.
Instead push them to dig deeper and reach those goals.
Many coaches set goals, then during the season, they lower them for the players and this is the wrong move to take by coaches.
You job is to push them into their greatness and the only way to do that is to, help them develop grit in themselves!
Coach With Passion.
The more passionate you are about the game, the better results your team will get from your coaching.
My best tennis coaches were all passionate about the game.
There is real authentic power in coaching with passion.
It’s so contagious, that many of them will over achieve in their careers with you.
I would make that my main coaching theme for every team.
Bring passion to practice and bring even more passion to your team matches.
The main goal is to have fun with your team!
