Hi, my name is John. I was an NCAA All-American at Rollins College and played professionally in Europe for two summers. I have coached national junior champions and adult senior champions over the years. I remain active as an elite player at the national, sectional and state level and have won multiple State, Sectional, and National Championships, including two Gold Balls. I understand the challenges that ALL players face at EVERY level, from new beginner to the tour professional. I have a Masters degree in Exercise Physiology and a Bachelors in Psychology with a special interest in Performance Nutrition, and Physical - "Mental Toughness" training. Give me an opportunity to help you achieve your goals and I know you'll be pleased with the results. I focus on the COMPLETE PLAYER - strokes, strategy, match tactics, off-court training, nutrition, and mental toughness. Let's get started!
The first lesson is a "Get To Know Each Other" session. I perform an accurate assessment of where you are today, right now, in your technique and "state-of-mind", which is a very important thing. From there I can assist anyone in attaining their goals as a player or competitor. I have the ability to approach every player as a unique individual and can adapt my teaching approach to your best learning modality. Some students are more "visual", others are more "kinesthetic" or tactile and need to feel the stroke. Whatever it takes, I can help.
