GOALS AND OBJECTIVES:
To provide a nurturing, fun and safe environment where kids and adults alike can commit themselves to the pursuit of excellence and self exploration while developing a healthy attitude to competition and life, through increasing body awareness and sensitivity.
Competitive tennis players all too often seem to somewhere lose the joy of simply hitting tennis balls. Our goal is to combine the pursuit of excellence with the innate desire to explore ourselves for the purposes of growth. Why is competition so difficult? Why is losing so painful? Why does winning feel so good? Why does the simple joy of being in the body and playing change so dramatically when competition begins?
By placing an emphasis on the process as opposed to only the result, we believe we can encourage students to transform their competitive experience through paying attention to both their body and their inner process. This increase of ‘feeling awareness’ within the body and a simple non-judgmental ‘acceptance and allowing’ of whatever is there is the process by which ‘growth’ can happen.
