Tournament Training Clinic

Updated: Sep 30, 2021

This clinic is for tournament players looking to achieve the highest ranking possible. The clinic will be 3:30-5 PM (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday), and Saturday (9-10:30 AM) at Saint John’s High School. The session will run October 6th to October 30th. The price for one child once a week is $200, twice a week $400, and three times a week $600. All payment will be made in cash in an envelope with the player and parents name on it on the first training day. We recommend at least twice a week for optimal improvement.

Each clinic will begin with a 5 minute dynamic warmup. Then, students will be separated according to predicted level and will do a 10 minute tournament style warm up with their partner. After, we will spend the next 30 minutes perfecting a shot of the day (such as killer forehands, top spin backhands, angle shots, short slices, and overheads) in a 5 minute game format. Players will move up and down courts depending on how they do. The purpose of this quick ladder system is to ensure (1) that players get to play against many different players, (2) to ensure an objective system for court placement so kids at the bottom courts will have the opportunity to play against players at the top court if they keep winning and players at the top courts may play against kids at the bottom courts if they keep losing, and (3) that players get used to competition and learn to develop a healthy relationship with competition, which is crucial for tennis success. After, we will spend 15 minutes each class mastering the serve, the most important shot in tennis. Serves that will be mastered will include second serve kick serves, slice serve, flat serves, and hybrid serves.

Lastly, we will spend the last 30 minutes playing singles matches in a tie breaker format. Each match will be 5 minutes with players moving up and down courts to ensure the objectives above are covered. During these matches, I will guide the players on (1) forming, implementing, and adjusting strategies depending on the player they are playing, (2) handling common situations that arise during tournaments such as emotions, wind, heat, sun, line call issues, and pressure, (3) implementing the shot of the day, and (4) embodying The Process of a Tennis Champion, meaning embodying the thoughts, feelings, and actions of a tennis champion.
