Coaching youth tennis or any sport for that matter is such a complicated process. Honestly, I only feel like I am only getting very good in my coaching after doing it for a long time, making tons of mistakes, and making a conscious effort to continually improve my craft. This is what makes good coaches so hard to find because most are not simply willing to put in the work required to be excellent.
Today, I want to talk about the difference between Outcome and Form-Based Coaching in regards to skill development in tennis. If you understand the difference between the two and how children develop skills it becomes very clear which to use and when during the development of your player.
