Welcome to my website! My name is Hennadiy Maloyvan – I am a professional tennis and sports psychology coach.
On the main page I want to draw your attention to the important role of the coach in the training process.
Good coaching is not only teaching, training, instructing and helping people to learn tennis skills, improve performance and reach their potential, but it is also about recognizing, understanding and providing for the social, emotional and personal needs of the players.
The roles of a tennis coach
A tennis coach has many functions and jobs. All of them contribute to being a successful coach:
- Teacher: imparting new knowledge and idea.
- Motivator: producing a positive, high quality approach by the player.
- Student: listening, learning, thinking for yourself :continual quest for self improvement.
- Scientist: analyzing, evaluating and drawing conclusions.
- Psychologist: counselling, advising, supporting.
- Friend: building a good relationship with the players.
“A successful coach is an important part of training process in order to achieve the goal!”
