PARENT´S ORIENTATION OF PLAYERS
Bearing in mind that tennis is a sport with open skills, we teach and train each skill according to the needs identified in each player. Certainly we can say we designed a progression for each identified need, whatever the level of play is. Progressively increasing the challenge and fostering self-esteem are always present in our methodology. We believe in a long-term concept and to develop a passion for the sport that will last the players a lifetime. Our method is on service for the player, not the player is in the service of our method. Our method believes in servicing the player not the other way around.
GTC Tennis Consultancy & Academy encourages players to reach their maximum potential, and to assist parents to have a more effective relationship with their children players. We also enjoy retaining more kids in our sport, and coaching Coaches to be more successful in all areas presented in their job.
