High-performance coaches are frequently skeptical. But our coaches came out of your presentation with a new perspective – analyzing their coaching/teaching methods. I think the epiphany came when coaches realized they were using positive actions as a punishment. For example, ‘making’ a player run laps because they lost a practice game. We are actually teaching them to resent the very actions that make them stronger and better!

It was a wake-up call for the parents, too. You could tell from the questions they were asking that your information was generating introspection. Personally, I wish I had had access to this information and these tools when I was a tennis parent, but hope to use them as a promoter of the sport and to help others.
