Re: Development Systems

Larry, here is my take on your question about one comprehensive
"step-by-step" development system. There are two ways to approach this
issue. One way is how the certification groups based in the United States
approach it. As you know, the two largest two groups here in the U.S.
provide opportunities for certification and on-going career growth through
workshops and conferences, and then let their members pick and choose what
they want to incorporate or not. Another approach, as is found in many
European countries, is a much more structured approach to offering tennis
teacher credentials. Namely, their certification process is much more
extensive than ours and continued education is mandatory not voluntary to
maintain membership. I know I am generalizing here when I say "European" but
I know that several countries, including the United Kingdom, are in this
category, since I was just in London conducting workshops for the British
Tennis Coaches Association for 200-250 extremely knowledgable coaches.

Therefore, without going through extensive training in one of those
countries you will not quite get what you indicate you are looking for.
However, here in this country, there are more than enough opportunities (as
you well know and often take advantage of) for gaining this type of
information. Since I know you personally, I can truthfully say that I wish
every coach and tennis teacher in the U.S. had your passion for personal and
professional growth and improvement.

Contact me personally if you want to discuss this further. Would be happy to
hear from you. Best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season and New
Year to you and everyone else reading this forum.
