This unprecedented ‘All Access’ DVD is an unbelievable teaching tool designed to help coaches maintain the all-important balance between specific, practical feedback and overall motivational encouragement of their players during match play.

USPTA’s 2009 High School Coach of the Year Lawrence Eyre takes you inside a “live” team practice and simulates how he prepares his team for a match. Using an intra-squad match, Eyres demonstrates how he practices watching and coaching his players at changeovers or at the end of sets.

On Disc 2, you will see Coach Eyre ‘on the move’ at every opportunity – from court to court – offering observations, suggestions and encouragement to all of his players during their matches. Filmed during an actual high school tennis match, this is a segment you will want to watch again and again. The coaching and the suggestions are terrific!

Get a leg up on your competition this season by mastering your down time during the match!

Eyre-coached teams have played for the State Team Championship 11 times in the past 24 seasons despite being the smallest school in the State of Iowa with a tennis team!
