“To have Jason as his coach is one of the best assets for Kyle’s tennis journey. From a young junior to college tennis player, Jason is always there to share his thoughts, to breakdown a match point by point, to inspire the future of tennis journey… As a tennis parent, there are many anxiety and uncertainty of this tennis journey, Jason never hesitated to pick up my call. Thank you, Jason.”
~ Karen (Kyle Tang’s mum)

Mission

The mission of the parent
  • Assist your child in balancing training demands and educational needs and possibly explore alternative education options.
  • Begin exploring the NCAA route as a potential development option, considering the player’s results and in consultation with the personal coach.
  • Encourage your child to have interests outside of tennis to maintain a “balanced” lifestyle.
  • Discuss and listen to your child to ensure he/she is still enjoying tennis. 
  • Discuss goals and aspirations to ensure your child is genuinely interested in pursuing the high performance path. Most important is that the child enjoys all aspects of tennis (most of the time).
  • Continue child’s involvement in decisions, independent time management and self-responsibility for tennis training and competition.
  • Encourage child’s independence by allowing him/her to travel independently or with the team. 
The mission of the Coach
  • Integrate the performance factors to enable the player to perform consistently at identified major domestic and international events.
  • Raise the performance capacity of the players.
  • Pursue professional development that includes new learning about technical, tactical, recovery and competition preparation information and appropriate training for the “learning to perform” stage.
  • Continue to encourage decision-making and self-responsibility for aspects of tennis training and competition.
  • Recruit and work with an expanded group of experts to help prepare the player for training and competition. 
The mission of the player
  • Be a responsible and independent player by demonstrating some self reliance in areas such as time management, attention to good nutrition, hydration and recovery, being ready for training and competition.
  • Include variety in your life during “downtime” such as keeping in touch with friends and pursuing a hobby.
  • Discuss your goals and aspirations with your coach and parents.
  • Be an ambassador of your provincial/national associations and the sport of tennis while in Canada and abroad.
  • Be responsible for schoolwork and academic achievement.
  • As a developing professional player, who represents OTR Elite & Hong Kong potentially, it is important that you become aware of your responsibilities with respect to community, corporate and media affairs and look to extend your services in these areas whenever possible.
