About Me

Hi, my name is Steve. I'm an experienced "all-court" player, and since taking a coaching position a few years ago, have improved my own game to include a variety of techniques for both backhand and forehand wings, as well as serve, return, volleys, overheads and drop-shots. I enjoy sharing the joy of the sport quite a bit, and adding different shots and learning when to use them. I find the mental aspects of positive self-talk and visualization essential to success on the court, but in life as well. Everything about this sport is challenging and satisfying.

Teaching Style

I believe in positive visualization and reinforcement. I like to capture the success when it happens to form solid body-memories of what success feels like. Of course these moments are built on technical step-by-step instruction. Let's enjoy the success! I like to encourage hitting deep, and taking charge of points. I have a strong serve and can teach students to generate power, and locate the ball, like a good pitcher. There are a number of drills and activities to help achieve these goals.
