MTVAC Tennis Pro Dan Myers is the Youngest to Attend Elite USTA Coaching Program!
Training a Tennis Pro
I always thought that coaching was telling someone how to play through basic verbal and physical instruction. Now I realize that coaching is helping someone to grow their game through cooperation between the coach and player, while helping the player achieve their own short and long term goals. – Dan Myers
Overall, the experience was invaluable and one that is sure to have a lasting effect on Dan. He is excited to be back on the MTVAC tennis courts to share all he’s learned with his fellow tennis pro staff members at Blue Chip Tennis Academy. Heads up MTVAC tennis players: get ready to participate in a few new and exciting drills on and off the courts!
United States Tennis Association (USTA) Program Highlights
This elite tennis coaching program’s goals are to provide opportunities to help coaches develop the next generation of American Tennis players. The USTA Coaching Education Department established this educational component in cooperation with the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR).
Dan Myers joins a very small and mighty group of Blue Chip Tennis coaches who have trained in the USTA High Performance Program. Last year, Jeremy Carl joined the ranks and advanced his knowledge at this elite tennis coaching program. Coaches from all over the country are chosen for this training, and we’re proud to have three of them right here at Mount Vernon!
