Getting Your Players to the Net: Revolutionize Your Coaching to Set Your Players Free!by Bill Patton
You know the frustration of working with players, boosting their net skills, and then they still dont come to the net? 28 year veteran coach Bill Patton knew that same frustration and came up with a system where in 5-7 sessions, the vast majority of players will become comfortable, and even very confident at the net. Coaches who take this course will be transformed with a system, a strategy that they can make their own. This system of progression/regression will help you boost player's confidence so that it will stick! You will be expected to learn the factors that inhibit players from learning how to come to the net with confidence. Some of those factors come from coaching that missed the mark just enough to be ineffective, while other factors are fairly universal among players. Those learning this format will not only gain a template for how to create realistic progressions and regressions for students, but also some tips, tricks and sticky issues to avoid and embrace. When players are able to take ownership of their own decision making, they are far more empowered to play creatively, mindfully and play their best game. Each challenge (drill) is one small step more difficult and realistic, and some are not realistic at all to create an overtraining effect, that makes playing a real match easier than the practice environment. Feel free to contact Bill with follow up questions or clarifications, and also be bold, make this your own.

Bill is a Maverick Leader and has always colored outside the lines. He used to take his toys apart to see how they worked. He turned those experiences into a strength. Now he creates innovative templates so that others can build on success and make it their own. He is most proud of winning an NCS Championship, and becoming a published author for the first time. Once when trying to speak another language to a player he thought he was asking if she was embarrassed, but he used the word for pregnant. That got sorted out later.
