District 15NJTL shares those views of coaching that the Elm Tree of Mastery will lead to winning.  Before establishing his double goal coaching philosophy at S.R.H.S. – Coach Danise shared those views with our AAU Junior Olympic Teams.  Establishing the ROOTS of their Journey.  Training is not only learning the techniques and tactics of tennis, it’s providing the fun and fulfillment of understanding and respecting what roots represents:

·       Rules:  making it fair for everyone

·       Opponents:  a worthy opponent is a gift.

·       Officials:  honoring the game means respecting officials.

·       Teammates:  never do anything, on or off the field, which would embarrass team or self.


District 15 NJTL is prepared to assist the high schools in Indian River and Palm Bay Counties by providing its athletes with low cost tennis and life programs.  We agree with coach when he measures success by the athletic task accomplishments not just the scoreboard.  His understanding, that the Elm Tree of Mastery cannot produce its fruit during the tennis season unless the seeds of EFFORT, LEARNING, & MANAGING MISTAKES are watered year round.
