    Dr. Lauer just seemed to scratch the surface. Would like to hear him speak again specifically about the mental game for the various age levels.

    I agree, I think this is one of the most important parts of coaching and the hardest one. It would be good to have a series of lectures dedicated to all different ages and stages.

    Thank you! Great presentation. I recently returned form LA and the IDEA World Health & Fitness Convention. Mind and nutrition are recieving a higher priority. It would make sense that tennis follows suit. All the best.

    Breath…Believe…use the ACC…and development of a powerful mindset…I enjoyed the webinar…if younger middle and high school players can practice these steps they will be much better players.

    good information. would enjoy hearing more from him also about the beginning levels of play – their confidence and concerns – in order to help them stay in the game – especially the perfectionists šŸ˜€

    really liked the see – erase – replace

    Start with the end in mind.
    What’s your target. A great tip.

    I believe the mental aspect of tennis is so important and sometimes overlooked. Mental toughness and resilience can be carried all through life as well.
