SYSTEM USED FOR THE TRAINING PROGRAM

 

  • From WGTA we encourage the retraining and the continuous training of the trainers since we are convinced that with a bigger and better formation, our work will be more professional and efficient getting new students and relying on existing ones.
  • For this reason Walter Grünfeld Tennis Academy has developed a multidisciplinary training program, in a global and integral way, that includes knowledge in different areas that we consider essential to know, to master and to put into practice, so that our work has a high quality and the trainer can achieve its greatest performance in carrying out its work.
  • This training is based on the WGTA SYSTEM aimed at the training specialized in tennis and the certification of the coaches that consists of the philosophy and method of daily work that we use with our players.

OBJECTIVES OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM

  • Reflect on important aspects of training that a good professional should control trying to clarify concepts.
  • Provide technicians with the possibility to expand and update their theoretical and practical knowledge.
  • Offer the latest training trends by giving technicians the tools to carry it out in a more effective way.
  • Dignify the profession of tennis technician contributing to create better trained and professional trainers thus improving our image as a collective.
  • To present to the organizations that trust in our work a serious and reasoned training program that unifies teaching and training criteria avoiding a dangerous and adventurous constant improvisation.
