When they talk about the greatest coach, make sure it’s you

Mexico group

In Sanchez-Casal, a coach is not only the one who feeds drills, and corrects the player’s game. The coach is the tutor, the one with the power on his/her hands to develop the game of the player. A coach is a person who is responsible for a group of players, the one that creates a connection with those players that make them feel secure. When you watch tennis TV don’t you see the player looking for the blithers after a point to make eye contact communication with his/her coach that nobody understands but them? Well, that is the connection I am talking about. The coach has to know the player’s needs, he/she has to know when to push the player and when to engage with the right motivation.

When summer arrives and the school year ends at ESIS – the Emilio Sanchez International School based in Florida – my role as a coach continues. Our student athletes at the Sanchez-Casal Academy, along with other players, can join our Traveling Team, a year round program in which we coach and accompany players to ITF tournaments in the Caribbean, Latin America and Europe.
