This weekend (September 11-13), Oscar Wegner is bringing his Modern Tennis Methodology approach to Atlanta in the form of a 3-day conference. Each of the three days will include speakers, on-court coaching for both junior and adult players, and the opportunity to become certified in the MTM method. Conference presenters are both local and international. For a complete list of speakers, click here.
Friday’s sessions will be held at the Fieldstone Tennis Center in Cumming, a suburb north of the city, starting at 9:30am with simultaneous coaches and players clinics. Saturday’s sessions will be held at the South Fulton Tennis Center in College Park and include clay-court work, a high school coach’s seminar, and a roundtable discussion on the future of junior tennis development. Sunday’s sessions will be held at Richard Craig Park in McDonough and include nutrition for players, being a tennis parent (presented by Yours Truly!), and more on-court clinics for both kids and coaches.

The cost to attend the conference ranges from FREE for those coaches already certified with MTM to $75 for those wishing to attend all 3 days plus becoming certified. General admission is $15/day or $35 for all 3 days. You can register online here.
If you’re on the fence about attending, take a few minutes to listen to this week’s podcast with Oscar and two of his certified coaches who will be presenting at the conference this weekend. I think the event will be well worth your and your junior player’s time. There aren’t many coaching conferences that welcome parents!
