Huge congratulations to Ben Letzer for verbally committing to Boston University Men’s Tennis (Division I). Over the past two years, Ben and his family would come down to Estero, FL, where he and I would spend days on end, training and preparing for both local and national events. This is the hardest working, most respectful & dedicated kids I’ve had the pleasure of working with. It’s not only been amazing to see him become so successful on the court, but also see him grow into an even better person. Thanks for letting me in on the journey! Keep striving for greatness; The future is yours 💪🏼⁣

Chris & his partner Tyler - Boys 18s Consolation Rd Finalists @ the Level 4 Team Challenge in Coral Gables, FL. Not our best week physically, but way to go out and compete! ⁣

Everybody has setbacks, illnesses, ailments, etc. It takes heart to get out there and give your best no matter what 💪🏼 ⁣

Shoutout to Chris Zuk for knocking out the #8 seed, enroute to the 3rd Rd of this weekend’s Level 5 in Orlando. ⁣⁣
Chris is in his first year of the 16s, making huge strides. In 12 months he went from a 7 UTR to a 10 UTR. Keep breaking barriers kid and next time we’ll bring home the hardware 💪🏼⁣⁣

Division 1 goals..



One of my 9 yr old girls learning the swing path to create topspin.

1) Setting the racket (visual of where it’s positioned). I would stand behind her and grab the racket so she could “feel” where it is. Then I would have her look back for the “visual.”

2) Racket drop and acceleration (elbow traveling through the trunk of the body) to contact out in front. Yes, her wrist is opening, but I’ll iron this out later.

3) Vertical swing path (clearing the basket) to prevent the student from “pushing” the racket forward and opening up.

Don’t make excuses for not having “tools” to teach. Be creative & use what you have.

Isolated service motion to focus on driving from the hips and chest, rather than the misconception of just “bending the knees”. *️⃣


Amazing to see how he was producing similar velocity compared to just getting ridiculous knee bend. More work to do to get deeper, but solid progress 💪🏼


✳️ External Shoulder Rotation ✳️

⚠️ Meghan (12 y/o) has been having trouble with racket drop and acceleration. This has been caused by elevating her arm and producing too much of a “Laso” effect. To help her feel how her shoulder is supposed to rotate, we did a couple exercises.

✔️ Put a tennis ball in your dominant hand in trophy position. Focus on Leg drive as that initiates chest driving up & shoulder rotating. Allow the ball to simply roll off the fingers.
✔️ Once comfortable, replace the tennis ball with a slightly heavier ball (I used a 2lb med ball to amplify the effect, while still allowing for complete control and reducing injury. A soccer ball will be fine as well 👍🏼
✔️ Move on to the racket, using the same movements. I personally had her use two fingers to narrow the focus on leg drive and shoulder rotation; allowing the racket to drop with ease.

At the 2019 Miami Open, Belinda Bencic was #22 in the world and I predicted she would be back in the Top 10 with the year. Ready for the Semi’s at the U.S. Open. Let’s go! 💪🏼

Congratulations to Ben Letzer for his run at the 2019 Kalamazoo National Championships. Ben visits Estero Country Club a few times a year; most recently back in April, where he ran me around for 7 days straight 😅 Proud of this young man and excited to see what the future has in store for him. 💪🏼

7 yr olds, Jack & Ryder now working on serves, returns & learning point play. They did awesome and had a blast, especially when they beat the older kids 👀💪🏼

12 yr old Meghan, continuing to improve her ball toss; keeping it out in front and her left arm up a bit longer. We’re also making huge strides with her balance and racket face staying closed. Keep grinding 💪🏼

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value; what is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right” - Albert Einstein

Challenge yourself to make a difference in a kid’s life. They will never forget how you made them feel.


Part 2 from previous post (video was cut short).


Thursday AM fitness block, focusing on:

- Balance
- Explosiveness
- Change of Direction
- First Push

Too boring or not good at it? Get comfortable with being uncomfortable- technique breaks down under pressure and w/ movement. Don’t neglect the areas that can keep your game intact, deep in the match 💪🏼


Farah, one of our members, working thru volley progressions to clean up the technique. Take a close look at her hands- here I’m using a looped resistance band as a constraint to keep the hands together.

Simple trick: Think “handcuffs.” It’ll keep the hands together out in front; forcing your shoulders to turn and your elbows out in front of the body. All 3 will prevent overuse of the racket (swinging) and loss of power/consistency on the volley.


Some of our kids working through various movements, focusing on:

- Change of Direction
- Plyometrics
- Agility
- Balance
- Ankle Stability
- Explosive power

A lot more to come 💪🏼


Balance & Agility - Part 2


Back to training after a week off due to illness. We focused on balance, first push, agility and isometric exercises for stability, as mobility was limited. It’s not always about hitting balls. Find ways to be productive, even when you’re limited. Way to push, Chris! 💪🏼


Thursday AM session - Chris putting in the time 💪🏼


Emphasis on creating a more powerful and explosive first push to the wide ball, with a crossover step. Covering more area, using fewer steps 💪🏼🎾

*Continue watching throughout to see all movements*

Nice preparation here from these young ladies 👍🏼


Giving Zach a good workout 👍🏼


Chris starting his summer training- 4 days/wk & lots to get to. Time to break it down and get this 15 yr old on track for college 💪🏼


Mackenzie working 1st serve returns- Playing high and heavy to build consistency 👍🏼


Always try to control the court and dictate play using your weapon (in this case the Forehand).


12 yr old Meghan, working on attacking short balls to open up the court. Nice work, Zach 👍🏼

A few of our 3.5 ladies in a final clinic with one of our members, Kathy, who will be relocating to TX. You were a staple on our team and will be sorely missed for your talent, but most importantly for your beaming personality! Thank you for all your support! 🎾


Shannon working through a great drill for open stance FH or BHs. Prior to hitting, she learned the swing path and how to load on the left (outside) leg, using a medicine ball.

Great stuff for her first time 👍🏼
