CANCUN, Mexico, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- 900 tennis coaches met and exchanged ideas on Developmental Progressions of junior tennis athletes. Gordon Uehling's talk (How to Develop and Maintain World Class Balance Control and a Properly Executed Split Step) encapsulated the 'Why, How and What' of modern day teaching tools.
Athletes learn to use their eyes, ears and proprioceptive senses to synchronize their body to the required movements with what some call sensory-motor development.
Understanding the movements required between hitting consecutive tennis balls can be described with these 5 segments:
Developing these movements requires isolating each segment and performing multiple repetitions correctly; as Daniel Coyle says, in his Best Seller 'The Talent Code', "build the desired pathways in the myelin of the brain."
Gordon Uehling of CourtSense appreciates these concepts and developed cutting edge progressions for junior athletes using the latest state of the art technology.
Developing correct movement in Segments can be accomplished using various mobile devices and the unique SW Applications developed for IOS and Android devices. With these tools the coach and athlete can spend quality time developing each of the movements within the various drills.
Gordon Uehling III, a former ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) world-ranked player both in singles and doubles, is the visionary behind the CourtSense program. At a young age, Gordon excelled in multiple sports which helped prepare him for his true passion in tennis. Gordon believes deeply in developing children to be fit, agile, responsible, and in their earlier pre-teen years to be trained in a variety of sports.
