    The above is an example of a lesson plan. Encompassing that will be a block plan. Followed by a unit plan. With teaching objectives in the cognitive, psychomotor and affective/social realms. A unit plan is catered to a specific age group and class for usually exactly one season and its...

    Coach's forum

    Tips and Instruction have a very different connotation to it. Similar to the quick fix frame-by-frame pages of the tennis magazine, Tip and Instruction provide a "picture" and clinic for the optimal modern stroke or strategy.

    Going from 3.5 to 5.5/6.0 in 2 years?

    The original post's author is not the only one with seeming pipe-dreams. Countless boys who frequent these forums wonder the same thing. Countless people from outside the forum wonder the same thing. We are all so eager to give them the "realistic" side. Does going from a 3.5 to 5.5 in two...

    Coach's forum

    I have a suggestion. That is, to create a completely new forum about drills, different age groups - elementary, juniors, high school level, college level, over 32, over 60, all male, all female, etc. Even complete lesson plans.

    Aussie Golf Legend Greg Norman slams Kyrgios and Tomic.

    Why would he care for any brother who takes every opportunity to condemn everything his family stands for? To say they place the nation's dreams on their shoulders is a misstatement. Bad behavior from one child in a classroom warrants a stern message of disapproval from voices in power. Apathy...

    Why Rafa is so great on clay.....

    A very heady and giggly-girl manner of presentation, no? I have one very serious counterargument to the claim of him being the greatest in current history on clay. And it is a very serious allegation for which I do not have the malice nor patience to find concrete support for. But Rafael Nadal...

    What do you think of this teaching technique?

    I think the coaching methodology is pretty common. Why is he making you do such a drill when your bh feels wrong? Because teaching the kinesiology behind an optimum backhand stroke is incredibly hard and he does not want to attempt it. Instead he's making you hit ball after ball in hope that...

    1H BH + 2H BH Combination?

    Wow. So many saying its okay? I'm disagreeing with everyone then. Their contact points in relation to body position is so different, eventually your 1 hander topspin is gonna suffer and you'll just settle for the 2 hander.
