Getting Your Players to the Net: Revolutionize Your Coaching to Set Your Players Free!

You know the frustration of working with players, boosting their net skills, and then they still dont come to the net?  28 year veteran coach Bill Patton knew that same frustration and came up with a system where in 5-7 sessions, the vast majority of players will become comfortable, and even very confident at the net.  Coaches who take this course will be transformed with a system, a strategy that they can make their own. This system of progression/regression will help you boost player's confidence so that it will stick! You will be expected to learn the factors that inhibit players from learning how to come to the net with confidence.  Some of those factors come from coaching that missed the mark just enough to be ineffective, while other factors are fairly universal among players.  Those learning this format will not only gain a template for how to create realistic progressions and regressions for students, but also some tips, tricks and sticky issues to avoid and embrace. When players are able to take ownership of their own decision making, they are far more empowered to play creatively, mindfully and play their best game.  Each challenge (drill) is one small step more difficult and realistic, and some are not realistic at all to create an overtraining effect, that makes playing a real match easier than the practice environment.  Feel free to contact Bill with follow up questions or clarifications, and also be bold, make this your own.  You may purchase the study guide on Amazon for only $0.99, which is he minimum price allowed, Getting Your Players to the Net.  Bill wil be presenting "Get Better at the Net Today!" in Los Angeles on October 1st as part of The Tennis Summit.  Other Speakers include the Coaches of Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson, as well as Styrling Strother co-founder of USATennisCoach.

Discover Your Ideal Two Handed Backhand Style: Revolutionize The Way the Two Hander is Taught

Many players have suffered by having been taught in a cookie cutter style, where a coach teaches only one style, and if the players can learn it, great, but if not, then they have a problem.  Thanks to the work of John Yandell who identified these four styles, that are now within the parameters of the USTA Player Development department, I began to study how to teach these. More importantly, you will see that this is an athlete centered approach, and each player decided which style they thought best. The data shows that they chose wisely, as each player had a magic moment where they really connected with a ball. 
 

It was exciting to make this course, as each player that is shown had no previous experience with me on court.  Thats very important, because it would be easy to fool you by using players that I had worked with for many years.  Amazingly, we were quite fortunate to capture each of the magic moments on film, so that you could see the manefestation of each player delivering from their ideal style.  Off camera there was some hooting and hollering as people stop and stay WOW, when each player showed how effitient their ideal style worked for them.
 

Whether you are a player, coach or parent, this video can revolutionize your understanding about how players differ, and why you should not often try to model your game after someone who has different laterality, spin preference and the like.  The course is meant to be interactive, and you can send me an email question about any video. Also, you get a 20 minute one on one talk on an appointment basis with this course.  schooloftennis@gmail.com
