Improve your squash from the comfort of your sofa!
“Not everybody is lucky enough to have access to an on-court coach.”
This service makes it easy to have your game analyzed, both technically AND tactically. All from the comfort of your home! You record yourself playing, send it to me and I analyze it and send a video back, showing how to improve.
When you are ready to start or if you have any questions, email me:
HOW IT WORKS
Record yourself playing a serious match. Try to get as much of the court in as possible. A smartphone can be used or even an action camera (avoid very wide-angles if possible as they distort the lens making it harder to see distances and movement). Use a court with a glass back wall, if possible.
Experiment to get the best recording!
Either upload it as an unlisted or private YouTube video or host it on a service (like Mega.nz) for me to download. Password protect it, if you want to. Send me the link (and password) to
[email protected]. You don’t need to edit it.
Send a link of the recording to me.
Expect to hear from me within 24 hours confirming delivery date of full feedback.I usually send the full feedback within two weeks. Keep training and playing while you wait!
Now you just have to be a little patient.
I will send you a link to an unlisted YouTube video. Only you have the link. You can share it if you want to.Watch the video, multiple times if needed to make sure you understand what you need to work on.Refer to the PDF feedback sheet if your package includes one.
Take the time to watch & read carefully.
If after watching and reading the feedback I have provided you still have questions or doubts, contact me for clarification. I will respond in the most appropriate way, which could include another short video or more likely a text reply to your email. If you chose the FULL package, we can chat on Skype if you want to.
Please ask, if you have any doubts.
6. Implement & Improve!
The easy part is over. Now, it is time for hard work.My feedback is structured to show you the 3 most important aspects to focus on and HOW to do that.There will also be side-items for you work on if you have the time and motivation.
It is at this point you pay via PayPal.
I currently offer one package. If you have a specialized requirement, please feel free to contact me and we can discuss the details.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Here are the most commonly asked questions. If you have others please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer them.
AFTER USING THIS SERVICE, WILL I BE ABLE TO BEAT MY ARCH-NEMESIS?
ABSOLUTELY! Well, possibly. If your video is of you playing him or her, make sure you tell me that you specifically want to beat this player and I will give you tips to not only improve your game, but also counter your nemesis’ strengths and exploit their weaknesses.
ENGLISH IS NOT MY FIRST LANGUAGE, CAN I STILL USE THE SERVICE?
Yes, definitely. If I know English is not your first language, I will speak slower, use clearer words and avoid phrasal verbs. Please let me know when you send your initial email.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON’T FEEL I RECEIVED GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY?
Notice that you do not pay until AFTER you have received the feedback video. I ask you to pay AFTER because I understand this is a new way to do this. I trust you and I hope you trust me. If you really do not feel that what you got was good value, then you can pay what you think it is worth.
WHAT TYPE OF FEEDBACK WILL I RECEIVE?
I focus on two aspects: the tactical and technical. I will highlight tactical mistakes you made, but also highlight the correct shot selection too. I will talk about the technical issues you may have and how that affects your tactical choices.
I AM A JUNIOR, CAN I STILL USE THIS SERVICE?
Yes, but I require contact and communication through a parent or guardian.
CAN I PAY WITH MY CREDIT CARD?
Yes, but I require all payments to go through PayPal. You can use your credit card to pay via PayPal.
WILL YOU OFFER OTHER WAYS TO PAY IN THE FUTURE BESIDES PAYPAL?
Honestly, I do not know. I may consider other payment services if they are easy to work with.
I ONLY HAVE A MOBILE PHONE. CAN I USE THAT TO RECORD MY VIDEO?
I have received videos recorded via a mobile phone and it was fine. of course, it depends on the quality of your phone and where it is positioned.
CAN I SEE A SAMPLE FEEDBACK VIDEO?
Yes. Here is a link to my original announcement video which has a short example.
I HAVE A QUESTION THAT IS NOT ANSWERED HERE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Send me an email and I will do my best to answer your question:
“The service provided by Phillip helped me see rapid improvement in my game.He provided very clear analysis of both the things I’m doing well and the things I need to improve.He walked me through a number of drills I can do on my own to target my weaknesses.In the month since I received my coaching video my player rating has steadily risen, and I feel much more confident on court.I’m sure I wouldn’t have had this success if I hadn’t used his service. I highly recommend Coach Phillip.”
