Ambulatory Adaptive Tennis Instructor
Jeff has worked with individuals across the United States as well as around the world on using their prosthesis as a tool, extension of their body, to get back on the tennis court and maximize their potential. Many of Jeff’s teaching, coaching, and training principles translate into helping you, your patient, or your student become more mobile and active not only on the tennis court, but in everyday life as well.
Jeff will also work with the student or professionals to not only strengthen the body but the mind as well. Jeff’s goal is to not only share a game he is passionate about but to help instill confidence and motivate those with whom he works with. He achieves this as acting as a mentor as well. Jeff primarily works with children ages seven to eighteen as well young adults.
Teaching Tennis Professionals & Coaches
As Ambulatory Adaptive Tennis continues to grow and develop teaching tennis pros will be eager to learn how to coach and teach an amputee tennis. There are many intricacies to be taught. Energy expulsion, lateral and vertical movement, which leg or area of the body to apply force to move to send and return and set back up under control. In addition to these intricacies, in his experiences Jeff has found teaching pros eager to learn about the prosthesis itself.
What types of knees and feet are best on the court? How do other players play and coaches coach around the world? How do we find players and advertise our program? What types of verbiage should we use when addressing players? These are all common questions Jeff can assist you with as well.
Jeff works with a great extensive team of National and International well respected professionals. Some of which include tennis professionals, sports performance trainers, medical professionals (physical and mental), and in Adaptive Sport.
We look forward to working with you.
