Boredom in a lesson isn't always a bad thing. Maybe having too many choices allows us to avoid the arduous stuff. Let's not run sprints to the net or shuffle drills and just work on our serves for the next 45 minutes - it's too hard and too big of a bummer. Let's rally instead!
But if the only choices are those drills or nothing, after awhile, the boredom of nothing is likely to push a player over the edge and get them to do the tough stuff.
Maybe an alternative to all that is boredom.
What would happen if you took away all the choices and let boredom work its magic? A type of kid bored that forced the student (and the coach) to make their own fun? Would they get so hungry that they would do the tough stuff if that was the only option?
In this episode, we explore the option of boredom as a motivating force in any tennis lesson to do the tough stuff.
Thanks for joining us on our journey!
What is Tennis Rockers?
Are you ready to re-imagine and reconstruct the way you realize not just the game of tennis but all the other ways you compete in life? Tennis Rockers pull together beliefs, concepts, ideas, people, and values from a cross-section of multi-disciplinary fields for the purpose of doing things a little different. Tennis Rockers don't just want to change the game, they want to help people think about changing how they see and live their lives.
Coach Claude and coach Sully cordially invite you to put the pedal to the metal and join an unconventional conversation on tennis and life. Nothing good comes from standing still.
