featuring Brian Boland, University of Virginia Head Coach;
Back-to-back (2011 & 2012) NCAA Team Championship Runner-up, 2008 ITA 'National Coach of the Year', 6x consecutive ACC `Coach of the Year'/ACC Conference Championship
Virginia Men's Tennis and Brian Boland both personify excellence, consistency
and sound fundamental play.
In this DVD, Coach Boland allows unprecedented "all access" to the first dual match of the season; setting the stage for a season of self-improvement, steady growth and team-building unity.
Boland provides insight into pre-match warm-ups, candid assessments of each player and their play, offers steady encouragement and purposeful, constructive criticism and then shares with you, the coach, what he is doing, why and where the opportunities for learning for your team can be found.
Boland shares his strategy of training and playing on clay courts in the early season. Clay surfaces reinforce sound footwork and provides other competitive advantages that cannot be found on hard surfaces.
Watch this DVD today and you will witness, firsthand, the focus, the dedication, the pushing, the fun, the frustration, and the tenacity of a Championship-caliber Virginia tennis team early on in the season. The net result for this team was finishing the year (second year in a row) as the NCAA Team Champion Runner-up!
