“Oh my goodness! We have only recently begin our junior program here at our facility in Acworth/Marietta, Ga and the Eye Coach has become an integral as well as dominant part of our training. The kids love it, the parents love it, the coaches love it, what more could you ask for, oh yeah – better strokes and footwork. We’ve had the Eye Coach in use 3 weeks and the difference it has made in our juniors footwork & ground strokes is absolutely phenomenal in such a short amount of time. Overall as coaches, what we like the most about the Eye Coach is the huge improvement in coordination of our 10u, 8u, & 6u players, again, in just 3 weeks! What a great training tool!”

EHIT

Location: East Hampton, NY

“Our EHIT staff had the pleasure of learning about the Eye Coach from Lenny Schloss. We were all very excited as Lenny showed us how we could use this tool in coaching our players about the importance of a solid contact point, as well as preventing our heads from shifting in order to achieve maximum balance and potential in each shot. With the Eye Coach, Lenny showed us a variety of drills that are simple to implement and can help slow down the process of learning for our students so that players of all levels can learn from it. EHIT is excited to add the Eye Coach to use as one of our teaching tools and also to help motivate our players to use this tool at home to help secure this concept into their muscle memory. In our vision to grow the sport of tennis, we have no doubt that the Eye Coach will be a great way to continue this at EHIT.”

Eldorado Country Club

Location: McKinney, Texas

“The Eye Coach has revolutionized our players, changed the learning curve for the better, and modified how we conduct business forever. We have been utilizing the system, not just the eye coach tool, for 4 years and we will never look back.

The Eye Coach is great for the student

- It makes it easier for the student to conceptualize and feel the mechanics

- It guarantees repetitive practice

- It guarantees results

The Eye Coach is great for the Instructors

- It also makes it easier for your instructors to implement the teaching curriculum

- It makes it easier to train inexperienced staff how to fit into the program

The Eye Coach is great for the Director

- The Eye Coach has increased our players level as a group consistently

- Players rally around the eye coach and it creates culture…not using an eye coach is noticeable now

Our cardio tennis program has increased 200% over 2 years and the number of eye coaches being used at home has continued to grow…It’ll take some work, but we sell Eye Coaches before new rackets 5 to 1. Try it today and feel the difference!”

Five Seasons Sports Club

Location: Centerville, OH

“The Eye Coach has taken off at Five Seasons in Dayton. Kurt Kopp, our club’s new Tennis Director, will be using the Eye Coach in all areas of the program.

The two primary areas we have used the Eye Coach so far is working with a couple of juniors to improve their consistency and with the 10 and Under kids to help with proper contact point and learning the “feel” of the ball when hit correctly.

One of the juniors parent said, “I have seen a great improvement in my son’s shot consistency. He has really improved his forehand and serve since using the Eye Coach. This is one of the best tools I have seen for tennis.”

– Bruce Stapleton, Chief Club Officer

Four Seasons Racquet Club

Location: Wilton, CT

“The Eye Coach is an amazing, innovative teaching/training tool.

The first tip virtually every tennis player in the world received was to “keep your eye on the ball.” What exactly does this mean? When should we watch the ball, how long should we watch it and, most important how can we get better at watching it?

The fact is, there’s much more to solid stroke production than simply “watching the ball.”

Billie Jean King and Lenny Schloss break it down for you and The Eye Coach is an amazing aid to help you ingrain the proper techniques that will take your strokes to the next several levels.

In learning any skill, repetition is key. For many tennis players, getting to the court to get those repetitions can be a challenge. The Eye Coach gives you easy access to as many as 1000 ball strikes an hour. It’s durable, it’s portable and it’s always ready to play with you.

Every tennis player that’s serious about improving their game needs an Eye Coach!”

Guilford Racquet and Swim Club

Location: Guilford, Connecticut

“We’ve been using the Eye Coach for about two months now, and already we’ve seen some great results. The great thing about the Eye Coach is it works on a couple of great levels. First and foremost, it gives players a new area of focus long ignored in conventional teaching, which is training your eyes to track the ball and stay with it through contact. At the same time, it gives players on the court more opportunities to practice this training and their technical skills in time that was once occupied by rest or ball pick up. The best part about the Eye Coach is, because the player is not concerned with where the ball is going (as they are with all other practice shots), they stay down on their shot more when using it, which carries right over to their live ball player. We can’t wait to see the results over the next few years!”

“Liezel and I have traveled all over the world. As you can imagine we have seen it all when it comes to teaching aids. We both can say, all you need is Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach. Nothing works better on maintaining balance, keeping your eye on the contact point and giving you an avenue to hit as many balls as necessary to improve rapidly. We use the Eye Coach in every class we offer. Junior programs, Adult drills, Cardio Tennis, you name it.”

Humbolt Tennis

Location: Arcata, CA

“I start every group clinic with a series of dynamic warmups jogging, grapevine and skipping around a court 3 times while running through agility ladders, cones etc. Then I spend 10 or 15 minutes checking eyes, balance and focus while all the students alternate forehands and backhand groundstrokes on the Eye Coach. I have them hit, hold their finish, check there eyes at the finish of the stroke and then athletically move through a figure “8” of cones. I am able to hit a lot of perfect shots with a class of 5-12 students and everyone is moving the whole time and we don’t pick up a ball for the first 30 minutes. Then we start the lesson theme of the day while the Eye Coach remains available between courts for a student that needs to refocus away from the distraction of live ball.”

Vanessa who was once selected to train with the French Federation and experiencedrigorous training , never really had the opportunity to train her eyes in the way we can now with Billie Jean King’s Eye Coach.It was a missing component that now is accessible to everyone! We have seen many of our participants improving their scanning, tracking and focusing while correcting their balance and as a result raise both their game and the love for the game.It is removing mechanical play and bringing back instinctive play.

Mobile Tennis Center

Location: Mobile, Alabama

“The Eye Coach has changed our thinking and method of teaching at the Mobile Tennis Center.With 60 courts, we have the opportunity to employ a large number of Full- and Part-Time teaching pro’s.In the past, it has been difficult for us to maintain a Quality Control Teaching Method.The Eye Coach and Lenny Schloss’ teaching methods have helped us create a consistency for teaching.Our policy is that every lesson we teach involves the Eye Coach.Because of the Eye Coach we have seen a dramatic improvement in our retention of lessons and clinics, as well as improvement in the skills of the players themselves.

As Director of Tennis, I am excited watching our coaches teach a consistent method and the Eye Coach allows me to easily train new tennis teachers.The Eye Coach and teaching methods make me feel like we are teaching a lesson instead of “selling a lesson” and I am sure this is why our retention has skyrocketed.Tennis can be a complicated sport especially to new parents with kids.The Eye Coach lets us “slow down” the action and show kids and parents how specific shots should be easily executed which simplifies learning.Parents watch our teachers use the Eye Coaches and get excited as they realize their kids have a plan to execute the shot and there is a method and progression for improving.I wish I would have found the Eye Coach many years ago!”

This is perhaps the best learning/teaching tool on the planet. So many ways to incorporate it into privates, groups, drills, etc. And adding in the off court/at home use is awesome!”
