An annual event since 1985, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Coaches Convention is one of the best professional development opportunities for collegiate tennis Coaches today.

Nearly 300 men’s and women’s college tennis coaches at all levels gather each year for the convention. The four-day convention is highlighted by some of the most influential people in the sport of tennis. In addition to offering clinics, panel discussions, awards banquet, a trade show and a chance to exchange ideas, the ITA Coaches Convention serves as the venue for the association’s annual meetings, which includes its Board of Directors and Operating Committee sessions.

Bo’s presentation will discuss how to easily incorporate resiliency skill development into your Tennis program and get results.

“Physical traits aside, what do the best athletes have in common? The answer is mental toughness. Those athletes who are revered and successful have true grit, they have resilience. But, mental toughness is not a mythical quality possessed by only a few. It is a teachable skill and there are proven strategies to develop your tennis players to be ‘Athlete Tough’,” Bo said.

“Being ‘Athlete Tough’ is defined by the actions you take when your performance matters the most. In the heat of battle or when all seems lost, those who stay in the game are those who never lose sight of why they are in the game in the first place.”

Bo’s presentation covers the most effective strategies to develop mental toughness within your tennis team, athlete by athlete. They are proven ways that the best performers rely on and use daily.

The 2016 ITA Coaches Convention will take place at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida, December 10-13, 2016.
