Director, High Performance Program
“Every player has something that makes them unique”.
“Throughout my coaching career, I’ve enjoyed finding that unique quality that makes players special. It’s true, Champions are made, not born. My coaching style develops players’ raw talent into the ability to compete at the professional level. Every professional player that I’ve coached has been different in their playing ability, developmental level and style. They have different personalities, playing weapons, athleticism and varied approaches to the game. The key to their playing success was our ability to maximize their playing potential by applying my principles of coaching and of course, exceptionally hard work”.
Bill Belser’s experience includes working with Grand Slam champions such as Andy Roddick, Greg Rusedski, Arantxa Sanchez, Brenda Shultz and Claudia Kohde-Kilsch. He finds and develops the unique quality in every player that makes them world-class champions. He has been coaching on the tour for 25 years.
Director, High Performance Fitness
“We are here to empower you to become a more efficient player”
“Do you know why “Champions” make it to the top and stay there? The most important factor is their ability to use their muscle energy efficiently. The most efficient players like Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic, can get to the ball and hit with efficiency. I can’t promise you that you’ll become the next Roger Federer, but I can promise you that with our integrated approach to Optimal Performance Training (OPT) we can make YOU a more efficient player. At WBATA, we have the team that will teach you how superior fitness and nutrition can empower you to play like a “Champion”.
