032 - Oscar Wegner and His Preferred Coaching Style

Oscar’s Success As a Coach When the coach can communicate through easy words and willing to permit the student to experiment and fail, learning will create a independent and lasting result. People learn when they experiment what does and does not have the correct result. We need to get creative when working with players to get them to understand concepts. They need to practice using a self-discovery model because this is what hey will do during a match. They need to figure out how to handle adversity for themselves. Oscar used this method with Bjorn Borg and Gustavo Kuerten. To learn more about Oscar go to tennisiseasy.com Well that was an important interview with Oscar, to get his principles off the ground for his future episodes, so be on the lookout for those. But according to Oscar: Finding ways for your students to learn for themselves, or guided self-discovery will allow your students to learn and have a longer lasting result. I have seen it first hand. Good Luck, Coach Mick,...

030 - Sid Newcomb - USPTA National Tester - The Importance of Diagnosis

Today we welcome Sid Newcomb, USPTA National Tester to the PTM Podcast. Sid is going to discuss the importance of the diagnosis in a lesson. Diagnosis is such an important part of what we do as teaching pros. A lot of inexperienced pros tend to diagnose based on the last ball they just fed. Way to much info instead of one thing they can work on. In a private: Start by removing yourself (or don’t teach the way you necessarily play) Be observant of the student Ask questions These are all super important in the diagnosis. A good pro has the confidence to ask questions to find out what is going on so you can diagnose. Like a doctor when you take your sick child in and tell him that she has had a fever. He/She will ask questions in order to get to a diagnosis based on the answers you give him/her. For someone just starting out in their teaching: Watch your student start hitting the ball to try to come up with some conclusions and ask questions in regards to what they are looking to do. ...

028 - Jorge Capestany - The 5 Types of People

Today I interview USPTA/PTR Master Professional Jorge Capestany. Jorge is a highly regarded tennis professional all around the world and has arguably the best tennis drills site on the internet. So Jorge , through his own experience has put people/coaches into one of 5 different levels 1. The Encourager - They look for the good in others and take the extra steps to tell them 2. They look for the good, but don’t tell them 3. Generally wired to look for the bad in others 4. Look for the bad in others and then DO tell THEM. These people are kind of mean. 5. The Gossiper - Look for the bad in others but tell OTHER PEOPLE If you see a flaw, it is OK, but make sure your spirit is looking for the good stuff as well. This will make the negative things easier to accept. Big Question: Where do you think you fit? The people that succeed in general tend to be more like the Level 1 and Level 2 people. Even Bigger Question: Where would your co-workers place you on this scale What a great convers...

026 - The Ocean Liner Coach

Today’s Quick Tip Is: Become the Ocean Liner Coach if you are in the business in taking a player from one point to another. I have been on one cruise. I thought I would never like them, but I really do. The cool part, other than the free drinks and ice cream, it that even though there is a final destination, we make a lot of successful stops along the way. For example: My in-laws come to Florida every year to hang out with us for a few months. Now when I make the drive, it takes me about 21 hours to get here from Michigan. When they drive it takes about 4 days, because they like to stop at some really cool places and soak in different parts of the country, Kind of like the movie Vacation, when Chevy Chase, I forget his character’s name, would make all of those different stops on the way to Wally World, like biggest ball of yarn, mall of America, biggest hunk of cheese, something to that effect. Where this applies to coaching is that, even though you may have a destination, there s...

025 - The Ambulance Coach

Today’s Quick Tip Is: Stop commenting on every shot and PICK ONE THING. Don’t try to correct each shot. There are NO REDOS anyway, just opportunities. Instead, Try to look for the primary issue and go from there, BEFORE THE FACT. Now you have presented an opportunity to the student. As a tester, the student was supposed to match the primary problem we saw, but the key for me was even if the primary problem didn’t match mine, that was OK as long as long as he progressed properly and the student LEARNED and improved. Let’s start with the positive: Now, depending on where you work, this might be somewhat appropriate because you WILL NOT be able to develop someone’s stroke over time. The two positions I can think of off hand are: 1. The Resort Pro 2. The Academy/Camp Pro As a resort pro for 30 years, to be honest, I did not give a lot of lessons to hotel guests, my staff did, but when I first started, it was all me. The one thing I learned was that, it was like the private lesson d...
