Don’t Just Focus On Stroke Production

Here’s a statement that should be obvious by now. Knowing how to hit strokes and knowing how to win under stress are different animals. The #1 statement I hear daily from concerned tennis parents is “My child’s the better player, yet they can’t win!”

The solution lies in the school methodology of teaching. Here’s what I mean, throughout every grade students are taught daily to shift their focus from math to science, from English to history, etc. The common blunder in tennis development is only focusing on a singular subject (fundamental stroke production) year after year.

The school methodology consistently delivers well rounded young adults. Add mental training such as shot selection, emotional training such as between point rituals and watch your child flourish.
