    Hi,

    I just want to ask some advice from other coach

    How will you train Kids that want to be competitive if he take 2 session of 1 hour a week with you ?
    Knowing that the kid is doing doing fitness (Soccer, Fitness lessons, ...) outside of the court.

    Do you just feed the ball from the baseline, for his technique, and his foot work ?

    or do you do other things ? (like see with the parent what goals can be set, planning, advice, ...) or is it an extra ?

    Thanks

    Kid...
    He needs work on strokes, strategy, movement, attitude, replication, odd shots, basic shots?
    Leave yourself open to suggestions from Dad, but otherwise, it's strokes and where to hit them.

    Thanks
    My son is making progress it is just that we don't see many coaches in action
    And the one we see in youtube seem to do many things that we are not doing now.

    That's why, you as his dad, should be doing some research and coaching/feeding/drilling/etc. him on some of the other days of the week. Trusting the coach with everything doesn't generally end well.

    Yep, but some coach in this board seems to be trust full and really are perfectionist. :)

    Are you telling me that the real coach are parents ?

    Be careful... once I hooked up my teen with a "coach" for weekly lessons my tennis cred took an enormous hit ;)

    Thanks TCF

    I should then try to go to that direction :) and then will need your eyes to guide me to the right direction.

    I will post some video of my kids strokes and you guys will help me in this adventure :)

    Thanks again
