TOURNAMENT TEAM

coaches committed to supporting players in competition

Tournament Team is a critical part of player development. A key driver of Pate Academy’s success is coaches watching and supporting players in competitive situations. Tournament Team is available for local, sectional, and national tournaments.

DETAILS

  • Warm-up for each day of the tournament, typically first thing in the morning

  • Watching at least one competitive match each day, with every effort to watch more than one match or parts of multiple matches whenever possible

  • Coaching on split sets, if permitted

  • Post-match, or end of day, coaching and analysis

  • Player tune-ups or extra hitting when possible

  • Post-tournament analysis and communication with each player’s lead coach

  • Targeted ratio of 1 coach to 4 players to optimize attention to players and minimize Coaching Fees; coach to player ratios may be greater if Coaching Fees are waived

COST

  • Coaching Fee is dependent on the length of the tournament

  • Players are responsible for their own direct expenses, including, but not limited to, tournament entry fees, transportation, lodging, and food and beverage

  • For players traveling under the supervision of Tournament Team, players are always responsible for their own direct expenses

  • Players are also responsible for their pro rata share of the expenses incurred by the coaches supporting Tournament Team

  • Coaches expenses vary based on tournament length, location, transportation requirements, number of coaches, and number of supported players

  • Pate Academy strives to manage down all player and coaches expenses to the greatest extent possible
