The first introductory session will be used to learn goals, understand skill level and fundamentals. The purpose is to understand the player's strengths, weakness and goals in order to create an action plan. I offer a custom coaching curriculum which includes include drills as well as mindset strategies, drills, film and/or more depending on the individual players' need.

Coach Rashidat is excellent! Our daughter loves her lessons and has really improved her game. Rashidat is a true professional and an outstanding athlete - polite, humble, insightful, motivating and thoughtful with her approach. You will not find a better coach or personal instructor.

Coach Rashidat is great. She comes well prepared, starts with a warm up during which she is evaluating player skills and talks about the goals of the player. Her works you hard but is very nice, listens, easy to talk to, helpful. She's terrific.
