Getting Tight Promo Video
Tennis is a sport of errors. Professional matches average around 70% errors and that number increases at the recreational level for both adults and juniors. Those errors are not well received by players. Not well received at all…
The negativity first gains a foothold as frustration, and straight-up anger quickly hijacks players who had all the right intentions of keeping their cool when they walked on to the court.
Nobody plans on getting angry in a match. But when the errors flow, there is no mechanism to deal with them. No “permission to miss” or quota. Essentially, you can’t just get rid of anger without replacing it with something else…
The new course, Getting Tight, is already proving to help replace anger with focus. Replace negatively with a positive frame of mind. Replace frustration with a strategic mindset. And ultimately, replace losing with winning.
Here’s two inspiring examples from Brian Richter, who is the director of the Pure Pace Tennis Academy in Ladera, California.
Isn’t this really the end-game for every coach in every lesson? Imagine how much more productive lessons would be all around the world if the player was not wasting time, effort and money by reacting negatively to errors.
Just think about it. A $120 course ( Getting Tight) can help continuously maximize the $60 or $80 or $100/hr (or a lot more) private and group lessons that players repeatedly book in for. Getting Tight has already proved to be an asset in matches, and a learning accelerator in practice.
Why waste time and money getting angry in matches when you have the perfect tool to invest in to fix it right here?
Here’s a second scenario from Brian, where Getting Tight was also instrumental in a the best lesson ever for a 14-year-old boy.
Congratulations to Brian on these two wonderful success stories! In both situations, your explanation of the key factors of Getting Tight replacing a negative (anger) with a positive (permission to miss).
We wish both players all the best as they keep working their way through the 27 chapter course. By the way, we put “Permission To Miss” as chapter three because we wanted players early access to this amazing mental/emotional/strategic tool.
Getting Tight removes negativity and replaces it with a composed, focused state of mind. That’s as powerful as it gets.
