Building Champion Players

Description

Why do some beginners move on and reach highly skilled levels of competitive play while others never seem to move out of rudimentary levels of skills, even as they seem to possess equal or even more athleticism and desire? The answer is in the foundation that beginners are introduced to and the patterns of development the student is offered. David W. Smith’s COACHING CHAMPIONS shares his tremendously successful teaching methodology that he has proven successful in a wide range of teaching and coaching applications. From the junior player development pro to the high school coach, from the recreation instructor to tennis pros in academies and clubs, COACHING CHAMPIONS offers a wide range of skill-progressions, drills, expectations, and real-life development programs. The very programs that Smith used to train over 100 state, national and world-ranked players of all ages. Follow these methods and discover a new world of success and successful students.
