About this pro

ATGA has been in the valley for 27 years. I'm a former Division 1 College coach at Boise State University & now coach the Red Mountain High School Team. We specialize in developing players of any age or ability. I'm the owner & Director of ATGA. 

Being able to show my clients the complete game is what I'm best at & I still enjoy the smile on faces when my clients feel effortless power. When I started ATGA 27 years ago after my college coaching experience at Boise State University, I set out to get as much knowledge as possible so I could be the best & most educated Tennis Professional around.  I learned from so many great pro's & Individuals.  I was definitely blessed!

So now all of us at ATGA teach Technical, Tactical, Physical & Psychological Tennis Development. We teach all aspects of the Tennis Game...join me to experience the difference🎾🏅🏆👍

    I have to tell you my Mental Toughness story. Sue McCoy and I were playing a match in Chandler today. We won the first set 6-2. We were down 0-5 in the second set. I looked at Sue and said to her: "we can do this, I know we can". We won the next game. I again told her "we can do this". We won the next game. This continued and we won the set 7-5! We just had to have Faith, Focus, Fight to the Finish and have Fun! Thanks coach!
