On October 19th the legendary tennis coach, Bob Brett, came for a 3 hour training session with ESTESS coaches and partner coaches on the topic of High Performance Junior Practice Techniques. Bob gave expert perspective on the importance of redundancy and repetition are tools to catalyze a players confidence. Bob demonstrated on court how two of our top performing juniors cautiously approached a challenging shot and were unable to to achieve the goal for a significant period of time. However, before onlookers and with Bob’s persistence and calm corrections, both juniors achieved the goal by the end of the demonstration. Tired, yet victorious, we learned the importance of not letting our players quit before victory!
