PLAYER DEVELOPMENT - OUR PHILOSOPHY
Building & Refining advanced technical
Building Successful Athletes & People by developing character & values
Building Strong "champion"
Building Smart & Effective Players
It all Starts With Character Building
We strongly believe that in order to prepare our players to deal with the requirements of reaching greatness, it all starts with developing strong core values that are critical to chasing excellence in any domain: passion for the sport and for hard work, dealing with failure, embracing challenges, discipline to stay committed. Without character building, a talented player may reach a very satisfying level but by developing core values and good habits he/she will learn to unleash his/her full potential both in training and in competition.
LEARN TO PLAY
LEARN TO WIN
Technical skills are key to playing the game but high performance tennis requires advanced technical skills that will remain strong under intense pressure. Technical skills are only fully acquired if they can be delivered with consistency & under pressure in competition. Strong technical skills are fundamental to execute Patterns of Play.
"Amateurs train until they succeed, Professionals train until they never miss"
Elite Tennis requires not only a high level of fitness level but also effective movements which needs to be learnt via specific footwork patterns. Technical skills are useless without the ability to move well to the ball. In our training, Technical skills are always linked to movement and then linked to tactical intenti
Technical and physical skills are the foundation to learn to play and perform.
Tennis is such a complex and fascinating game. The tactical aspect can be of huge importance and that's why you can win against players that are stronger and more skilled than you and vice versa. Remember some bad losses against weaker players? That was probably tactical and mental. Our Job is to develop smart, effective tennis players who are able to adapt to situations, solve-problems by themselves and maximise their chance of success.
In order to do this, we develop our players' game style and link it with specific Patterns of Play (PoP).
Any high Performance player can tell you that Tennis is very much of mental game. We define the players' mental strength that by the ability to deliver their best when it really matters.
Do you have difficulty transitioning your "training level" into matches , show inconsistency in performance or poor attitude when it gets tough? It's all related to Mindset and character building.
A strong competitive mindset can be taught. We teach our students to embrace challenges as it will help them bring their best and we train them to deal with challenges.
Tactical and mental skills are key to learning how to compete & win.
