With the French Open closely followed by Wimbledon everyone seems to fancy learning to play the sport so this time of year should be especially busy for tennis coaches.
If you're a coach now is the time to build your business using the magic of the French Open and Wimbledon to help you. Admitedly a lot of the new pupils will fall by the wayside but if you are good at your job and good at communicating with them you should keep a fair proportion of them for years to come. You may know all about topspin, slice, lobs, be able to teach left handed and right handed pupils with ease, have hours of brilliant drills at your fingertips for your pupils but can they hear you? Can they understand what you are saying? You have to teach (especially in the UK) outdoors where the wind can carry your voice and make it sound weak. You need to sound enthusiastic, authoritative and friendly all at the same time. Have you ever been taught good communication and speaking skills?
I have taught tennis coaches for many years and been present at many tennis lessons - my daughter played tennis and is a qualified coach. I noticed that the most successful coaches in terms of number of pupils were coaches that could easily converse and explain things to children and adults. They were not necessarily the best technically. If you are going to train the next Wimbledon Champion you had better get those communication skills right.
Based on my years of teaching, writing for the 'Tennis Pro' and the International Tennis Federation Coaching and Sport Science Review and first hand knowledge of tennis coaching I have developed a two hour course that will help you. If you enrol I will give you support and guidance if needed 365 days a year. What have you got to lose? Nothing and everything to gain. Enrol now and improve your business.
