I forgot to mention I have my certification as a teaching pro and am also a registered, certified Physiotherapist. So if you have any injury related questions or technique related questions feel free. I also have a sister in law who is a Sports Psychologist who is the first female to work with each of the major sports teams in the US - so fire away and we will answer questions - maybe a Blog would be best?
