From The Heart
 
I have been a Talk Tennis fan for many years. At first, I would just look at what others have posted.When my daughter started getting serious in tennis I began to post about my daughter's tennis. Over the years, I have made some really good friends here on this site that I am still very close to now.I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH FROM THIS SITE AND FELLOW POSTERS THAT NOW I WANNA GIVE BACK. If you ever read my post you can tell that I am so so passionate about junior tennis and trying to help others on this journey. I have been around tennis for 30 years. I have been fortunate enough to have worked for Nick Bollettieri, Manny Diaz, and many other great coaches. I just wanted to share with my fellow T.T. posters some information that can give you a blue print on how to help your child or student reach their goal of being the best player they could possibly be. This summer I met Heath Waters and I was blown away.He is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After talking with him, I knew I had to take my daughter to him.In less than 2 months she has moved up nearly 40 spots in the rankings. As a 10 year old, she has placed in the last 3 level 2 tournaments in the 12 and under division. She has won one and lost in the finals of one in doubles. Not only has she improved as a player, I have improved as a parent coach. On October 26-28, Heath will be doing a coaching seminar course in Atlanta. What an opportunity for parents and coaches to learn a system that has produced multiple professional players with over 90 pro-titles as well as 30 gold balls. I know I will be there and I hope some of my talk tennis family will join me.See you guys in October. http://www.tennisdev.com/

Can you name his players (16-18 yo) and their results? It does not matter how small kids play in 10-12 yo., it is important how they play in 16-18 yo.

thanks GA for the heads up.

Good job to you and your daughter, just remember, you and your daughter are amazing too. If it were not up to both of you no amount of coaching system whether Ace or any other will help if the both of you have not put in the time, effort and hard work.

Anyway, might come down with my with my kid. I will tell them you referred me.

That would be awesome if you were to come down. Pro Tour as much as you love the game you just have to meet Heath!!! Its gonna be so much fun!! One of the many things i love about Heath is that he wants to empower the parents. Thanks for the nice things you said about me and my daughter. Im just glad you and I arent still fussing about quickstart :)

Is anybody else here going????

I really hope some of you guys can come. This is gonna be the best money you could spend if you wanna improve as a coach or as a parent coach. Heath is amazing and his system is gonna change the status of American tennis. I promise if you come you will leave knowing soooo much more.Wouldnt it be nice to put on your business card that you were ACE certified, a system that has produced 90 pro titles and over 30 gold balls.

BHiC 08-23-2012 05:56 AM

I agree with you, Heath Waters is a great pro. I had the chance to work with him about a year ago when he and some of his players came to my area for a week, and I really enjoyed being on his court. I am still using some of the tips that he gave me in my matches today, and they are really affective.

We arent either right now since we changed everything. I am not gonna worry about wins or losses now she just needs the match play.I think 100 matches a year is a good number.

gplracer 08-24-2012 08:49 AM

I think 100 is plenty as well. My son just turned 10 and he did 91 yast year. I really did not know it was going to end up being that much.

Her coach thinks 100 is a good number.Is your son playing the 12s?

tennisconsultcom 08-24-2012 11:15 AM

Some interesting information about great players was found, for instance:
- They played 45-50 singles matches per year plus 15 doubles matches, which was below average for these ages.
- They practiced around 10 hours per week, which was below the average for the group, and two to four hours less than the top 12-13 year-old players.
Look at the article: http://wp.me/p2iyrR-bY

100 matches an year for 10-12 year old? You cannot be serious.

gplracer 08-24-2012 04:14 PM

My son is playing in the 12s now. He has only played 3 10 and under tournaments in the last 10 month. We are pretty much done with the 10s. Send me an email and we can talk ga tournaments.

If you play 24 tournaments a year (average of 2 per month), 100 matches could happen to a great player in the 10s and 12s.

There are many 10-12 kids that take 200+ privates a year. That's a crazy number to me.

gplracer 08-25-2012 04:32 AM

200 privates a year seems like a lot. One a week is good for us.
