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!

All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a "live" practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach's practice can be costly. That's why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos -- to bring the practices to you!

All Access Virginia Tennis: First Match of the Season
on August 25, 2012
  • Currently 5/5 Stars.
5/5 Stars

by lawrenceeyre501

In this live-mic dual match video, Coach Brian Boland successfully fosters "relentless competitiveness"--the commitment to play every point with intense energy and sustained focus--not through fiery Knute Rockne oratory, but through a balance of encouragement and quiet challenge tailored to each player's distinctive personality and playing style.

Coach Boland is not a 'my way or the highway' coach; instead, he emphasizes the importance of allowing players to be themselves on court. He builds on players' strengths first; then he works to inspire his guys to eliminate any blind spots in their games.

This video affords viewers a rare privilege: an extended look at a master coach in action. Five stars.

I was 'stopped in my tracks' when I saw that Championship was able to get the first dual match of the season with Virginia on DVD. That is one program I have been watching on the rise for several years and they have been dominant the past few ... ordered and cannot wait to watch it!! This is incredible ...Well done!
