One of only 25 coaches in the United States to be chosen by the United States Tennis Association to be part of their high performance coaching certification program Jason Goldman-Petri is an athlete's dream coach. As he says “My business has an athlete first approach meaning I do not dictate what needs to happen but rather guide the player to where they wish to go.” He's all about the player.
As a high performance tennis coach specializing in the technical tactical psychological and physical aspects of tennis performance Goldman-Petri helps his clients gain:
bull- Confidence in their tennis gamesbull-Mastery of the difficult skills of tennis technique quicklybull-A more focused clear-headed approach to competition that normally can only be accomplished through years of tournament playbull-Valuable practice habits that lead to success and improved playbull-A flawless tactical approach based on geometry of a tennis court and the physical shot-making capabilities of the human body.
But it's not the improvement of physical skills that Goldman-Petri most treasures about his work as a coach. Instead he takes his greatest joy from “seeing the look on a student's face when they finally accomplish their goal or tackle a difficult task. I know how frustrating tennis was for me before I got a solid coach and mentor and I know how wonderful it can feel when you finally get it right. I really enjoy knowing that I helped them achieve their goals and had a hand in that joy and excitement they are feeling.”
It would seem that his clients are taking joy too. One of his students at a top division II school started out this year playing #3 doubles of 3 spots and was not able to get a starting singles role of 6th. By the end of the season she had worked her way up to #2 doubles and #3 singles consistently starting in each match as well as consistently winning against her team's rivals. Goldman-Petri says “My work allows me to help a novice gain confidence an intermediate the skills and mindset needed to advance and an advanced player the ability to achieve at any stage.” It's clear that USTA was not mistaken when selecting this coach for their most prestigious honor.
