Philosophy

 During 15 years as a high performance coach, I have remained committed to helping local junior tennis players in achieving their collegiate playing aspirations. I have always believed in the proper balance of tennis, school and life off the court for young athletes                                                                                                                                                                                                  

I believe in coaching to the individual and developing skills that are most relevant to each player’s present and immediate needs.  This may include; fundamental athletic and technical skills, pattern and tactical play, high level strategy and/or competing skills. As we progress, the goal is to develop a complete player and athlete prepared for the expectations of collegiate tennis.        

Over the years, I am proud to have coached and assisted more than 30 players graduating from my academies and continuing on to Division 1 collegiate tennis on scholarships. Some of them have gone on to play on the professional tour, while others have taken the path to success in their careers in the workplace.

10&Under Tennis is rapidly growing throughout the United States and Europe, and for a good reason. The USTA has released specific recommendations for differently aged (and skilled) players. Although every student is an individual and there can always be exceptions to the rule; the USTA has done extensive research proving the benefits of court-size reduction and ball decompression regarding Junior Player Development.

USTA Junior Court Recommendations

 

The reason for using specially-sized courts is to improve a young players core game much more rapidly. These recommendations specify ages and development ranges in order for the parents and/or coaches to make the most informed decisions possible when placing the student on the court. Students who begin their tennis careers on the appropriate sized courts, with the appropriate tennis ball generally experience a higher level of success and less frustration than those who choose not to.
