A day in the life of Coach Winterton–
If you are a regular reader you will know that video readings helped me produce a ton of champions this year! My message to all–do not forget how you got there!!
Help me to help you! I have the luxury of working with several top players in the game as well as folks at the skill and age divisions. The one thing I say regularly to them please send me video. Well Yesterday everyone heard me-All at once! hahaha–I downloaded 17 videos and analyzed all of them! Just before I went to bed three more came in! Anyway, now my athletes will have something to work on. At the pro level, the videos dealt with a lot of mental things as well as footwork and mechanics issues. At the skill and age levels , we dealt a lot with positioning as well as mechanics, and footwork tips. Of course the mental part of racquetball has to be attended at all levels. All athletes, whether tournament or non tournament players, get frustrated learning new skills. It has to be tough to hear that you need to change parts of your game. I know it was tough for me but I knew I had to change to become a better player. I know the players changing are better for it and I have the video to prove it. I also have the video to prove why some methodology is just plain wrong! To all of my students-Thanks for your faith in me!
