Home Practice

Practice routines that can easily and inexpensively be done within the comfort of one's home. The practice video is powerful, showing Victor Lilov going through similar routines at age nine and still at age twelve. Victor won his (US) national title and the prestigious Junior International Orange Bowl, and was also ranked number one nationally.

Tennis students wanting to improve should take a minimum of five minutes twice a day to practice "at home" tennis routines. Ten minutes, ten months, ten years of additional practice will guarantee improvement. The student assisting Steve Smith with our "Home Practice" course is shown doing the drills as a nine year old and then as a twelve year old. The "method of the madness" works, the student earned the number one ranking in the twelve and under division in the United States and won both the US Nationals and the prestigious Orange Bowl (an international event) in his age group.

Steve Smith teaches all his students to teach.
