Why Take A.T.L.D Lessons?
Simply put, you will learn and improve with A.T.L.D lessons at a faster rate than you will with other lessons. These lesson plans are based on 22 years of coaching experience at all levels, from beginner rec-center programs to NCAA university tennis teams. This has led to a wide range of knowledge in regards to all aspects of tennis, and to the development of unique lesson plans and drills that will speed up your ability to learn this game.
Unlike most coaches who teach an outdated and overly simplified version of tennis that is not reflective of the current game (and encourages bad habits from the start), with A.T.L.D lessons you will learn and practice the correct, modern way of playing tennis from your first time out on the court.
Along the way, you will receive a high level of feedback, combined with enthusiasm and encouragement that will make the process of learning this great game much more enjoyable.
A.T.L.D also aims to keep tennis affordable. By using easily accessible public access courts, and being independent of any clubs and their associated fees, we are able to avoid passing these costs on to clients, ensuring that you can get the highest quality instruction without breaking the bank.
About Coach David Hierck
David Hierck has been active in tennis for the past 27 years. His playing career began at the age of 10. The next 8 years were spent playing the junior tournament circuit throughout BC Canada and Washington State, along with trips to the BC Summer Games and high school tennis Provincials. The culmination of his junior career would lead to numerous scholarship offers from every level of NCAA competition, and in turn a playing career at Lindenwood University in St. Louis, Missouri.
His coaching career began at the age of 15, when he was hired as the Junior Tennis Pro at the Nelson Tennis Club in Nelson, BC. Over the next few years, he coached at facilities in Castlegar, Trail, Vancouver (coach at UBC summer tennis camps 2001-2002), and Kelowna (coach at Golds Gym and Racquet Club and Okanagan Mission Tennis Club). During his 4 years of university, he returned each summer to the BC Kootenays to run the tennis programs in Nelson, Castlegar, and Trail for 4 months, and also coached at clubs in the St. Louis area. Upon completion of his degree in Sports Administration, he returned to Lindenwood University to coach the Junior Varsity tennis team during their 2009 season. He returned to coaching in Vancouver in 2010, and launched A.T.L.D in April of 2012. During 4 years of operations in Vancouver, A.T.L.D became Vancouver's leading independent provider of tennis lessons, working with an average of 150 individuals per year.
Seeking a more tennis friendly climate, David moved to Chandler in July of 2016, bringing A.T.L.D tennis lessons to Phoenix and the East Valley.
