  1. Review your developmental plan with your coach and make updates if needed, or create a developmental plan if you don't have one.
  2. Take time to improve your tennis technique by shadowing the stroke technique you are working on with your coach in a big mirror or sliding glass door.
  3. Hit on a wall or garage door with a red foam ball to practice the technique you have been shadowing in the mirror.
  4. Watch match videos of players who play the type of tennis you want to play and learn what you can work on to improve your game.
  5. Watch match videos of yourself playing and learn what you are doing well and what you can improve on.
  6. Review the Player Journal and click on the links or use the QR codes to learn more information on each topic.
  7. Read biographies of the best athletes in tennis and other sports to learn from their journey.
