Players will receive mental training throughout the year from Brian Park. Brian is a Certified Mental Coach and holds a Masters of Science in Sports Psychology. Mental training will consist of in-class educational sessions on Saturday and on-court implementation throughout the week. Brian will be in close communication with the coach/mentors to discuss each player’s mental skills development.
Mental training includes, but is not limited to: breathing techniques, rituals, focus, concentration, imagery training, relaxation training, body language, attitude, and different situational techniques such as “playing the score”. The most important objectives are to improve the athlete’s competitive strength and to develop strong people of great character.
Players are expected to maintain a tennis journal that the coach/mentors will check periodically. The tennis journal will be used to implement a goal setting system, write match play reports, and to help players to build a better understanding of game.
