Start with good Habits

Private lessons in the beginning help fix incorrect technique before they become a bad habit. Once the student knows they want to make progress faster, regular lessons are  recommended.

Some learn better in the one-to-one lesson, and the lessons are tailored to the unique needs of each student.

Be Prepared to Make the Most of the Time . . .

The student spends approximately 25-30 minutes one-on-one with a coach. This allows the coach to correct and focus on what each individual needs to progress. Immediate feedback allows the student to instantly implement what was just learned. To make the most of the time, please have yourself or your child warm up PRIOR to the lesson – about 8-10 minutes ahead of time. That way the coach will not have to spend the time being sure the athlete is physically ready to start.

Doing things correctly as soon as possible is much better than having to unlearn bad habits. Coaches focus on many areas including technique, skills, and as one progresses, tactics, critical thinking, and mental preparation. Each lesson is uniquely tailored to the student, their learning style and their needs. 

Private Lesson fees:
You must cancel a lesson 24 hours ahead of time or you will still need to pay unless a medical emergency, you may cancel on line using the same scheduling link. The cancellation will immediately go to the coach’s cell phone.

Contact your coach directly or use the scheduling links above to schedule your regular lesson, or one off lessons.
