    Craig O'Shannessy Brain Game Tennis

    Hi, question for parents/coaches of high level juniors. I've been looking at some of Craig O'Shannessy presentations on YouTube. Seems like a very smart guy. My 12 y.o. nationally ranked son is transitioning full time into 14s. Technique and mentality are solid. Tactics are good but could...

    Gut recommendation for junior hybrid setup?

    My 12 1/2 y.o. son nationally ranked is breaking strings every 4-6 hrs play time now. We started with full multifilament until about 10 1/2 y.o., then switched to poly/multi setup until he was 11.5-12 y.o. He's been playing full poly (Diadem Solstice main/cross 50/52) Pure Aero Team racquet...

    Suggestions for contraints-based swing volley drill?

    I have a fairly specific question for any coaches familiar with constraints-based coaching: My fairly high level just turned 12 y.o. son has a good swing volley. He has no trouble nailing the shot during practice or when he's ahead in matches. The problem rears it's head during close matches...
