  1. Qualities of a ProWe are friendly. PTR pros make newcomers feel extremely welcome. We learn their names and put them at ease.
  2.  

  3. We are organized. We are able to sort out groupings and initiate the action with a minimum of standing around or wasted time.
  4.  

  5. We can demonstrate the graduated length method for teaching strokes. Whether in slow motion or regular speed, we can demonstrate every stroke from a simple fundamental base to the more complex components.
  6.  

  7. We have good feeding skills. In a group situation, PTR pros know double-rhythm feeding, i.e., that there should be two balls in the air at virtually the same time. By knowing double-rhythm feeding, the quality of a PTR group drill session is greatly enhanced.
  8.  

  9. We understand the need for individual attention. PTR pros have the ability to give quick individual help to personalize the group learning experience, while still keeping the group active. We are concerned that everyone should be getting full value for their time.
  10.  

  11. We empower our students. PTR pros show our students how to rally with each other so that they can improve independently from the pro. We show them how to send the ball and how to receive it.
  12.  

  13. We show our students how to practice. PTR pros have a number of ways to show novice players how to practice, whether against a backboard or a ball machine, with a partner or partners.
  14.  

  15. We are good at marketing our lessons. When PTR pros wrap up a lesson, they review each person’s performance, remind them of the importance of practice and schedule their next lesson.
  16.  

  17. We care for our students. PTR pros follow up the development of our students with phone calls, notes or emails.
  18.  

  19. We love the game. PTR pros know that if you teach for the money, it’s the worst profession in the world. Because we love to teach, our livelihood becomes extremely fulfilling.
