COACHING PHILOSOPHY

Part of the mission of USTA Player Development is the implementation of a comprehensive coaching philosophy. This coaching philosophy was developed by Jose Higueras in conjunction with our USTA Player Development staff and is based on the many years of collective coaching experience and interaction with the international tennis community.

The Coaching Philosophy is comprised of key terms and concepts that are instrumental in the long-term development of outstanding tennis players and individuals. You can download the Coaching Philosophy presentation here.
