I want to share my highlight with all of you. Okay, my dad is helping me type but most of these ideas are mine with a little spice from my dad. It started yesterday with Daniel Naiman talking to us about colour war. What a day it was today. Take a look at some pics and feel free to like and share.
It all started with this video below…
I am really enjoying camp and a lot of the staff are a big part of it. They call themselves TSPA dream team and you can read more about their profiles by clicking here and take a look at this group shot below.
I am so glad to be a camper because I realize these guys are really working hard. They really have a true passion for teaching tennis and love kids. A big thank you goes to Fadi Saijari who always goes out of his way to make sure I am happy. Thank you to Steve Valin who won the camp director award and here’s a great video that shows the TSPA behind the scenes. It is like 24 CH with the Montreal Candiens but it is 24 TSPA 🙂
I didn’t know how much of a positive self talk can really influence my performance. Here’s another great video that I have to remind myself because I still cry on the courts when I lose.
The Pro’s in Trainer (PIT) and Counselor in Trainer (CIT) who graduated this year is also a big highlight. I didn’t realize they volunteered so many hours but I guess their diploma and the satisfaction that they completed a good job is very rewarding. Here is a great pic below and more information on that program ideal for 14-17 years old can be seen by clicking here.
I didn’t realize that the woodland club (TSPA’s sister location) had a triatholon on Tuesday and the staff there too are working their bums off. Great pics by clicking here. below.
Today, after camp was over, I played with Fadi Saijari, Daniel Tehrani, Grace Jast and Patrick Johns. Everytime I won a point it counted as three and all the staff were so nice with me. I am still working on not crying when I lose points but I guess I am competitive and really want to win. Before I knew it, it was 6:30pm and we were still playing tennis. Just wanted to say thank you to the TSPA dream team. I don’t think you realize how you make my day better and how much I will miss you.
I think these coupons are really motivating and a good idea. I can’t believe my dad did a video on what you can exchange for coupons and you can see that below.
Okay, I am tired and getting ready to go to bed. My dad promised to read to me if I had a good day. He’s always telling me to think about the process and not the outcome but I am not quite sure what that means yet. He tells me that he is planting a seed in my brain but I guess I will see it grow soon. I think I had a great day and wanted to share some of my highlights with you. Thanks for reading and if you are still reading this, I would offer you a coupon if you can simply reply to this email with got it AND see when you see my dad and ask him nicely for a coupon. You will also need to mention at least one positive sports psychology word such as confidence, happy, fun, determined etc. Not only do campers get coupons but the staff does as well. You can see what the staff can exchange for their coupons by clicking here. I guess the idea is to pass on this vibe of good will, acts of kindness not only to campers and parents but also to all staff and eventually to the world at large.
A couple more highlights please. I just love this idea of sharing good memories. Can’t believe Victor Ruggi rapped this song last year.
It was nice to hear Daniac rap the song that he created. The words of the song are very powerful and true.
Can’t wait to go to the Rogers Cup next week 🙂 Last year I was on his shoulder and apparently I was quite heavy. Guess where I am 🙂
