The following assessments are optional for the ECD, and SA levels.
Player Assessment #1 is a full-length technical evaluation. Players must schedule an appointment to have each essential stroke filmed from three different angles, complete two tests of their technical skills, and complete a goal sheet. Players will receive a personalized training video which will be sent as a private YouTube clip.
The video will have two parts: 1) slow motion with technical information, and 2) classroom presentation reviewing the prescribed changes and homework. Upon viewing the video three times, the player must email simplified notes to the instructional staff. The process documents development and assigns accountability for both the player and instructional staff. Fee: $125
Please note: Only total beginners are exempt from this process.
This service is also available for adults.
Assessment #2. The service is to capture match play on film and then provide a tactical analysis.
