#tennisjp #tennisbaka #coach プライベートコーチをつけている選手ってどれ位いらっしゃるのでしょうかね。日本では一般的ではないような気がしますが、多くのテニスクラブでは、プライベートレッスンを提供していますよね。

ちょっと興味深い記事がありましたので転記しておきます。その記事は、「How To Find A Great Tennis Coach」というタイトル。いわゆるプライベートコーチの見つけ方をリストしています。

  1. Talk to your friends and teammates. This might be the best way to find a good tennis coach. Or it might not. But its definitely the place to start. If any of your friends and teammates are taking lessons, talk to them about the tennis coach they use and what it is they like about him or her. Try to drop in on a few lessons with these pros to see what their teaching style is.
  2. Look at the pros at your club or tennis facility. If you’re playing on a team or in a league, chances are very good that you belong to a club or other tennis facility that has tennis pros on staff. Take a look at these pros, watch their lessons and see if you can work with them.
  3. Use the USPTA’s “Find-A-Pro” system. The United States Professional Tennis Association is the world’s largest association of tennis-teaching professionals. Among other things, it provides a certification program for recreational tennis coaches. Chances are that a USPTA certfied coach will be a pretty good teacher. You can search for USPTA coaches in your area through the group’s on-line “Find-A-Pro” database. Just click here to try it out.
  4. Search through the PTR’s database. The Professional Tennis Registry is another organization of tennis coaches and teachers. The PTR has four levels of certification, ranging from Associate Instructor to Master Professional. Like the USPTA, the PTR has an on-line database you can access to find a coach in your area. Click here to look for a PTR tennis coach.
  5. Try the Internet. This is a source I recommend with some caution. I mean – it’s the Internet. Anyone can claim to be a pro at anything. When I looked for pros in my area, I honestly didn’t see the name of anyone I recognized. But, depending on where you live, this might be the way to go. Just be sure to ask for references and to visit some lessons before getting involved with a pro you come up with from the Internet.

ごくごく当たり前のようなことがリストされているような気もしますが・・・それでも、ちょっと参考になるような気がしますが如何でしょう。
