MTC Teaching and Coaching Philosophy

1. To be a double-goal coach: teaching life lessons and winning. To stress winning is important, it is not the most important. The athlete and life lessons come first, winning second.

2. To ensure players have fun, enjoy the game and put effort, learn and manage and bounce back from mistakes while playing and learning the game.

3. To use tennis as a vehicle to teach life lessons- life values (respect, excellence, discipline) and life skills (honesty, integrity, fairness, problem-solving and self-reliance). Teach respect for rules, opponents, officials, teammates, equipment and one’s self.

4. To develop and train players to be game-ready players and to teach players of all levels to be proficient at all areas of the game (physical, mental, tactical and technical).

5. To develop tennis players into the best athletes they can be. Emphasis is placed on performance-oriented goals first, then outcome-oriented goals. The long term goal of a player is to reach their maximum potential.

6. To ensure that tennis training/practice sessions predominantly simulate match situations.

7. To develop game styles which are consistent with personality and physical skills of the player.
