Ace session boost to coaches
TENNIS Terranora hosted a Tennis Australia Coaches' Workshop, which was attended by several coaches from around the Tweed last Sunday.
Tennis Australia coach development officer Joe Kubizniak ran an intensive five-hour workshop for local coaches, working on both technical and tactical aspects of the game with an emphasis on how to construct points.
He also pointed out how France and Spain are the countries acknowledged as having the best coaching facilities and most successful programs and revealed methods employed by them that Tennis Australia was adopting.
There was a special session on how to “keep kids in tennis” by making the game an enjoyable experience and how the new Hot Shots start-up program was achieving this goal.
The session concluded with advice on how to promote the game and obtain grants and subsidies.
This information was well received as a fitting end to a day of great benefit to Tweed coaches, players and the game.
