Pick the brain of one of the most successful tennis coaches in the U.S. and learn how to create perennial championship teams and successful individual champions! Join David W. Smith as he reveals how he has trained some of the most successful high school tennis programs in three states for over 30 years. With a win-loss record of over 700 team wins against fewer than a dozen loses in his career, Smith has developed countless state, national and world-ranked individuals while coaching huge teams. Learn how to attract large numbers of participants and then discover how easy it is to effectively train such numbers while never having to cut a single player from your program. In fact, as Smith has proven, many of the typical kids many coaches would have cut from other teams, have gone on to become state champions through the methods that he is sharing. With minimal experience, even a novice coach can discover how to develop players through Smith’s “Advanced Foundation” and a wide variety of unique and highly effective drills. This is considered the “ultimate blueprint” for developing highly successful teams.
