Tip of the Week (Coach Steph): Internal & External Motivation June 17 2015, 13 Comments
Practice makes perfect. It sure does, if it is "good" practice.
The acquisition or improvement of a skill requires good habits from the start to enable a player to repeat it correctly.
Motivation is required if repetition of a skill seems challenging. Motivation can be created by oneself (internal), or by inspiring and energetic tennis coaches (external)!
Internal motivation is in general created easier by adults. Children need that extra "fun factor", and some adults need that confidence boost to feel free to make mistakes in the learning process.
No matter the age, if the player is motivated to learn, internally and externally, there will be no stopping their improvement!
