How to Teach Your Child Tennis: Lesson 1 - Attitude
This series will provide helpful tips for how to teach your child how to play tennis. In lesson 1 I will give 3 pieces of advices that deal with necessary parental attitude for teaching a child how to play tennis.
If you're answer is yes to any or all of these questions you're in luck! I have been teaching tennis to children ages 5-15 for the last 7 years. I managed a summer tennis camp for 3 years, and co-managed a different summer tennis camp for 3 years. In this series I will give you, the parent, information that is absolutely critical for being an effective tennis teacher. In this lesson I will discuss perhaps the most important part of teaching any child how to play tennis - attitude. Now, I realize that you may be tempted to skip over this lesson, and get straight to the technical aspects of teaching. Please don't! Understanding the tennis teaching mindset is absolutely CRITICAL for teaching your child how to play tennis. In the proceeding paragraphs, I will discuss the three necessary characteristics of any tennis teacher: patience, enthusiasm, and understanding.
In order to be a successful tennis teacher for children of any age, but particularly for children ages 5-10, you must be incredibly patient. More precisely, you have to be prepared for your child to be unable to hit the ball over the net for the first 50 or more hours on the court. Yes, 50 hours! In my tennis teaching experience, I have had children on the tennis court for two 25 hour weeks that were only able to hit a fed ball over the net at the end of the second week. For many, it can take an entire summer of teaching before the child can begin to rally. As the parent, yelling at your child, or showing frustration during these first hours on the court, is completely counter productive. If you want to teach your child how to play tennis, you must be positive during the beginning of this sometimes painful learning curve.
The best tennis teachers are enthusiastic. If you as the parent show enthusiasm for being on the tennis court, your child will likely be more enthusiastic about going out on to the tennis court. After all, if the child associates going out on to the tennis court with fun and excitement, she will be thrilled when her mother announces, "It's time to go practice that forehand!" As the parent, this enthusiasm must be consistent throughout the training. If this enthusiasm is not present, you will soon find yourself forcing your child to go back to the tennis court.
Unfortunately, tennis is not for everyone. There are some children I have shown incredible amounts of patience and excitement who just don't like playing tennis. If you find after two or three weeks on the court that your child fits this description, you may have to be understanding about tennis not being your child's sport. Although Andre Agassi turned out to be a great tennis player despite being forced to play by his parents, forcing a child to keep playing tennis does not work out for 99% of those who try.
That's all for Lesson 1! I suggest taking a moment to reflect on this information before continuing with Lesson 2, which deals with necessary teaching equipment and literature.
