This intensive workshop is designed to give coaches the tools to build a more competitive high school program. The concepts and methods elaborated in the on-court sessions will enable coaches to develop their own effective lesson plans and practice strategies.

  • Teaching the fundamentals of stroke productions and efficient footwork
  • Explaining proper singles and doubles positioning to less experienced players
