Remote Coaching is our SQUASHTIGERS term for providing coaching to tournament players without the coach traveling to the event. We use FaceTime or Zoom to view the matches and then speak to the players before, during and after their games. We guide and mentor the players to achieve their best performances and learn from their experiences subsequently.
Coaches prefer to speak briefly to players after they have done their general warmup and before they go on court for the match warmup. We appreciate there may not always be time, but that is ideal. Similarly, a brief chat post game, whether win, lost or draw is ideal to assist players in preparing for their next match, or to aid reflection post event.
You can always assume that coaches will follow the event online, have some knowledge of opponents and place in the draw. Players and parents texting about delays or details such as fatigue or nerves is always welcome.
The technology component is a simple one.
Our Zoom link is https://us06web.zoom.us/j/6099064271 or in other cases when we Facetime, our preferred SQUASHTIGERS cell # is (609) 906-4271
Confirm your preferred cell # and email address pre event please
Ensure that the player has a set of headphones to be able to interact with the coach confidentially
Always good to check cell reception / wifi strength in advance!
Please speak with the coaches directly with any questions. Additionally please be aware that slots can fill up fast and we do have finite capacity.
