Having played on a D1 college tennis team and having coached a D1 college tennis team, I can offer a unique perspective on technique, tactics, and strategy. Additionally, I am competing in the AA1 ALTA league. I have been playing tennis since the age of 5 and have a great passion for both playing and coaching the sport.
I enjoy working with students on a different sides of the spectrum. I had the opportunity to coach kids, college players, and seniors from beginners to semi-professional players. Working with students from diverse backgrounds and seeing them improve over time has been an extremely rewarding experience.
Gerry helped me prepare for the ALTA league a co-worker wanted me to join. I was a very rusty and had not played tennis in a few years. He improved my technique as well as finding my rhythm. He is very detail-oriented and has a nice, casual, and considerate way of coaching.
1. Objectives discussion (What is the student's goal? E.g. getting started with tennis, preparing for upcoming ALTA league, trying to play varsity college tennis...)
2. Assessment (What are the student's strenghts and weaknesses? What do we need to work on and how can we achieve the student's goals?)
3. Getting started and mapping out a training plan taylored to student's objectives and availabilities
