stands for Control, Distance, and
Velocity. TTS believes this is a natural and necessary
progression in the learning curve. Our
approach to shot development follows these basic principles:
you must first establish control:
of your body, racket, stroke technique, and ultimately the ball; you then
move on, using this established control, to regulate the distance:
of your body to the ball and how far the ball will travel for each shot
selected; once these two skills are mastered you have the capacity to determine
the needed velocity: with
which you strike the ball and impart to the ball,
using your personal parameters of control and distance
attained through practice.
establishing a workable knowledge and understanding for these three primary
requirements you will be able to create and use the necessary
patterns which allow ultimately for success during competition.
believes that movement training is of utmost importance.
Our specialized program is separated from our conditioning program to
emphasize this importance. Composed
of sport specific movements that simulate the patterns used while
in game situations, this ‘pattern
running’ training is performed on court to create a superior learning
environment. Our intent is to
produce maximum efficiency in movement by eliminating unnecessary foot and
arm actions, thus creating more time for shot making.
