Tennis Philosophy / Goal

“Play to Win!!!- no matter what your age or level my goal is for everyone we work with is to “feel success”.   Success can be getting your first tennis ball over the net, maybe making a shot you have never made, it could be finally winning your first match, or beating someone you have never beat.   Tennis is a game with so many surprises and joys.   So our  hope to you is that you catch the tennis fever, savor the emotions it creates, and buckle your seat belt for your “Tennis Adventure”.

"I am a father of two girls and a son.  I believe this helps me with instruction all ages of tennis and to understand my students to help them reach their maximum potential. Coaching is not just about the tennis.  It is listening, helping and caring for our students through all parts of their lives.

My teaching philosophy is simple.  I like to work hard and have fun.  If I can transfer my passion and enthusiasm for tennis to our members and exercise becomes part of their daily routine, then and only then have we succeeded.

My personal commitment is to provide a safe, positive and encouraging environment to maximize learning and skill development."

-Coach Bryan
