HISTORY

The connection between body and mind in order the bring the best performances in practice and competition lies at the heart of how we teach. All players feel at their best when this balance is achieved but it takes practice and guidance to find consistently. Using language which is free from judgement and filled with purpose and positivity helps unlock the nervous system of the players to ‘open up’ their minds to allow technical change and new feelings in the body become easy. The understanding of the individual also plays a major role for the coach and come from the ongoing relationship between player and coach. This is centred around trust and confidence in an agreed vision.

Relaxation of the body in order to find rhythm and timing is at the start of every session. This also allows natural movement patterns to emerge from where technique can be added and guided. The relaxed but sharp player still able to be deadly and intelligent on the court and use the ease of movement and skill to solve the technical and tactical challenges faced with clarity.

Our system works through the following simple steps to begin for each player:

  • Functional movement assessment testing balance, movement timing, multi directional changes, hip function and lunge technique, rhythm, timing, coordination and proprioception
  • Finding rhythm and timing of movement to and from the ball
  • Relaxation of swing and linking to movement rhythm and timing
  • Development of feel, skill and ball control with feeds, routines, games and movement patterns
  • Develop personal game style by identifying and building on the natural strengths and attacking shots
