OTR Elite Growth Cycle

OTR Elite Growth Cycle 1


We strive to develop a growth mindset by focusing on 4 key areas:

  1. Challenge Belief systems – The idea that each person has a set of born skills or talents and cannot improve is not true. We can – with a strong emphasis on effort – attempt to shift these belief systems. Process vs outcome based approach.
  2. Frame Challenges as opportunities to grow, not as threats.
  3. Embrace Mistakes – they are necessary, and extremely useful, stepping stones in an ongoing journey of improvement.
  4. Present Feedback as constructive advice, not personal attacks on their character.

Mindset =
the established
set of attitudes
held by someone.

Character Development

We have narrowed down 26 character strengths – both moral and performance strengths and have come up with 5 keystone character strengths we will be working with each year: Hard working, discipline, focus, competitive and resilience.

OTR Elite Growth Cycle 3

We believe these keystone character strengths will help build the individual as a person, and give them the best tools to reach their potential as a tennis player too.


We have created a syllabus for each programme for this segment.
They are broken down into 4 main categories with a clear and systematic approach to each level of player:

  1. Technical
  2. Tactical
  3. Physical
  4. Mental


We strive to be more process focused rather than result orientated but we understand the importance and significance of outcomes and how they can help influence our mindset and give us valuable feedback for development. We simply use outcomes – UTR / Tournaments – as measuring tools, not as judgements of our players; they are merely helpful environments to observe areas for continual improvement.
