Just wanted to remind everyone who has a virtual player space at the academy…Make sure you utilize this as remote coaching is as effective as on-court coaching when it comes to many elements of the sport, particularly mental and tactical.
The hours I spend off-court coaching now mirrors my on-court hours (breaking down video, answering player questions, working with goals, regimens, etc.).
In other words, as part of this academy, you have a coach at your fingertips 24/7 and can learn important things in the sport at your own time, in the comfort of your own home, accessible at the touch of your smartphone. Fire off a question any time of the day or night. As a coach, I can also answer on my own time frame, but will always respond to issues and questions daily.
