Finding a quality tennis coach is a difficult task. As a general rule of thumb: Do not listen to what people say, look at their accomplishments! For example, many coaches will lie to you by claiming to have worked with professional players because they know many people are impressed by hearing big names.
To avoid any costly mistakes, any final decision needs to be made based on solid and objective research information to evaluate the potential coach. Factors such as a coach’s:
- Level of Education
- Work Ethic
- Career Achievements
form the basis for the coach’s evaluation and facilitate the decision-making process. You have to decide which criteria are important in the selection process: the minimum requirements.
- Highly committed
- Continuously improves player rankings
- Previously coached top 50 national junior players
- Former NCAA Division I college player
