My name is Chad Copeland. I am a professional tennis instructor with over 10 years of experience in the game. I have taught some of the USTA's greatest junior players. I am looking to find more tennis prodigies.
I am a hardworking, dedicated teacher who will teach all the know-hows and skills. I know what it takes to be the best.
I was offered many scholarships to play tennis in college. I was as high as number 3 in the USTA Junior Division, and as high as number 15 in the world.
I did get a brief chance to play at a Grand Slam, but was ousted in the second round. All in all, I know what it takes to be the best, and I will turn anyone into the best.
Feel free to contact me today!
I specialize in teaching, training and molding young athletes into professionals. There are many like me, but none quite as good as I am.
I do not have any brand sponsorship yet, but I do recommend Babolat and Wilson. I am looking into getting a contract with Wilson to help me build my own tennis academy.

I am a USPTA certified professional, and I go to many coaches’ conferences to continue building my knowledge.
The only information I would have are things like, how long you or whoever you may be signing up has been playing tennis, any problems with listening, any behavioral issues, any physical problems, and any mental problems. Just things that any instructor would like to know.
I wish people knew how much it actually takes to coach, and especially to coach children. It is very difficult to find different motivators for children as they mature, and not all children are the same. You really have to be dedicated not only to your job, but to your students in order to be a coach. You have to love what you do, and I assure I do.
I am one of the youngest coaches you will find. I am only 19, and will be 20 in August, and still with my youth I have the knowledge and know-how of someone who has been coaching for many years. All my experience comes from playing, and because I do still play competitively, I can understand the frustration that kids feel, the pressure and that is something that you won’t get from almost any other coach.
I would recommend that, first, never force anyone to play if their heart is not in it, because they are going to hate it, and not follow-through with it, and in the end you end up wasting sometimes thousands of dollars. I also recommend that if you just want to learn to play and become a recreational player that you sign up for one of my group lessons.
The last thing is, if you do have a child who is on the fence about playing, sign them up for my group lessons first, and then later, once they begin to show more interest, sign them up for private lessons. It is the easiest way to get your kids to play and save a lot of money.
A:Yes, I have several students with Asperger's disorder and even Autism.
I try not to take on too many students due to the fact that I wouldn't be able to give that individual attention to my students. I train about 10 students that are bound to become great, and about 15 more that are down their way. I do group lessons as well, but they are usually beginners who were forced to play the sport.
My work is never done, but I do provide parents and players with post lessons stats and a copy of the next lesson plan. I am also a certified nutritionist, and I don't only coach on the court, but off it as well.
I started playing tennis when I was 4, and have been playing ever since. I trained under some of the world's greatest coaches, including Nick Bolliteri. Then in high school, I saw that my school was lacking tennis players, not because no one wanted to play, but because they didn't know how. So, I started giving Tennis lessons to possible players well before the season started. They weren't great, but they did help us to win 3 state titles while I was there. I then went on to becoming a certified professional instructor, and now, I "live to play" and teach.
Well, I had a young student win the Florida super series, and what was so spectacular about this was that he was 10 years old playing against 14, 15, and 16-year-olds.
