WE INCORPORATE THE 5 KEY GAME SITUATIONS INTO EACH TRAINING SESSION WHERE POSSIBLE:

  1. Baseline to baseline
  2. Approaching
  3. Passing & lobbing
  4. Serving
  5. Returning

We will also draw from the following tactical components

  • The jab
  • Fast hands
  • Angles
  • Big targets
  • Transition
  • A.C.E – awareness, choice, execution
  • 3AM Theory
  • Positioning
  • Following the ball
  • Poaching
  • Building
  • Ending

This tailored method of identifying key character strengths for each team to work on has produced great results over the years. They form the foundation on which teams can build synergy both on and off the court and allows continual and motivated improvements.

Understand the “ why ”

  • Identify key areas of purpose and narrow these down to 3 main ideas.
  • These will be agreed by all team members.
  • Coach does not influence.

How we execute

  • Create a ‘mantra’ encompassing the 3 ‘whys’ and agreed upon by all team members.
  • Focus primarily on these 3 areas throughout a season.
  • Create a list of rules – designed by each team – to follow throughout the season.
  • Add the necessary layers of technical, tactical, physical and mental skills.
  • Pursue the idea – ‘To maximize the efficiency of the team.’

What is our plan

  • Team training will be a 2-hour session, weekly throughout the season.
  • Additional private and semi-private lessons can be arranged to supplement.
  • Competitive practise matches will be arranged from time to time.
  • Off-season team training can increase to twice weekly if wanted or needed.
