JMTA Training Philosophy

Our coaching approach is positive, encouraging and motivating, as we believe this approach produces the best short-term and long-term results and maximizes players’ enjoyment of the sport. Self-confidence is absolutely essential to developing a successful competitive player in an individual sport. This self-confidence comes primarily from the hard work of the player, from the encouragement from his or her coaches and, of course, from the support of his or her family.
Games Approach
Over-teaching the technical aspects of the game can result in player frustration and in an inability to adapt to game situations. It can also lead to developing great hitters with beautiful strokes, who, nonetheless, do not know how to compete and win. If too much time is focused on perfecting strokes, over time, players and coaches create a misconception that all problems and solutions can be found in technical corrections, which is never the case. more...
Developing Complete Players
Developing competitive tennis players is not just about the technical, the tactical and on-court training. The sport of tennis continues to evolve and athleticism, performance, recovery and injury prevention are critical elements of today’s game. In addition, the psychological elements of the game of tennis, including mental toughness, the capacity to deal with on-court adversity, and the psychology of winning, are vital to a player’s success. These elements are integrated into the JMTA Player Development Program.
