Muchísimas gracias por todo!!!
Ha sido fantástico todo, de primerísimo nivel, los oradores increíbles, las presentaciones muy interesantes todas, muchas cosas nuevas, innovadoras que me ayudarán en mi crecimiento profesional .
Nicole ByrneAugust 21, 2020
This was fantastic. I loved all of the interaction and ability to ask questions. Having each day split up into different themes was useful. Thank you for putting this together. I appreciate all the info available, but I think we could use more time between discussion days and video launch days.
I also wonder if there’s a way to take a survey for individual regions to see what time people are available for locker rooms.
My last suggestion is to have speaker’s names in the title of the presentations. People kept saying “Laramie’s talk was great” but you’d have to go to the schedule to find laramie’s talk to then go to the other tab to watch. Thanks again for all you did. It was truly wonderful!

Thanks Nicole .. The website was templated and caused us more than our fair share of issues so we wont be using it again. Great comments and we are so pleased you got a lot out of the event.

IT’S YOUR GAME !!!.. what a fantastic e-learning event.
From the first day I was able to get inspired, by all the increadible speakers and with all the incredible knowledge that was shared from passionate coaches from all over the world.
I am so gratefull I have 1 entire year to look at the content, because i still have a few more to follow, but eventhough i have not been able to follow the exact shedule, i feel super connected with the conference, for some reason i experience a strong sence of belonging feeling, i feel part of a beatifull tennis community.
All that creativity to keep us engaged also triggered my creativity to improve my little tennis school.
This conference did not only inspired me to become more motivated, but it also made me more curious to keep learning.
During the interactive sessions or just by reading some questions of the participants made me realize that i am not the only coach that face challenges at times during a coaching session, that i am not the only coach that feels that i need to learn more about the kids, that i am not the only coach that is daily giving there best to improve themself as a coach, or trying to improve their program, and i am definitely not the only coach whom believe in the sport, whom have a passion for the sport, and whom wants to make the world a better place for our children trough tennis.
Experiencing all this within this beatiful tennis community in the ITS MY GAME conference, also gave me a big confidence boost.
So i want to thank the entire team, and everybody for sharing all that positive energy and making tennis feel even more valuable in my life.
This same passion and energy I will continue to share with my tennis players and my tennis community in SURINAME.
And i will continue to stay openminded to keep learning.
My recommendation for the organizing team would be to make sure to have continuity on this initiative. Would be wonderful to have this type of conference every year or maybe every 2 years.
CONTINUITY IS KEY TO SUCCES.
There can be continuity in keeping this community connected and engaged , but also continuity in sharing knowledge.
( thank you very much in dutch)
Groetjes uit Suriname.
( greetings from suriname in dutch)

Let’s find a way to share as much of this as we can in Suriname! SO great to have you with us Carolina and watch this space for lots more in the year ahead as we revisit everything on a monthly basis.
Carolina Vera VeraAugust 22, 2020
I would love to stay in touch and see how we can share all this amazing work with the Suriname community. We are still a small tennis community , but we have alot of potencial to grow…..thank you once again
Espen LilleaasAugust 22, 2020
Great conference. Big thanks to Mike and his team. I think the best thing about the conference is that it kept inside one topic – kids tennis. I also liked the Locker Rooms chats. Very inspiring.
Gemma WiltshireAugust 22, 2020
Mike this was a great idea and brought together really. Lots of great content on a lot of subject matters.
Glad I have the VIP membership so I can watch at point after the conference as keeping up to date every 2 days is tough with coaching as well.
Time to let it sink in then carry on learning.
Thassha VitayavirojAugust 22, 2020
Great opportunity to join this conference :) Thanks Mike and the team to put this all together. What I love the most about this event is because its very specific to kids tennis so I really enjoy the contents. I still didnt finish them all but with VIP membership option I will be able to watch them later. Love the facebook group and all interaction activities/quizz you have created. Many thanks once again for organizing this event.
adminAugust 22, 2020
Thanks for being part of this Thassha. The idea of everyone busy at a different level of activity was the reason we went for the pre-recorded option so we are glad you will be able to catch up on what you havent got to yet!
Fabiana Taverna-SaballosAugust 24, 2020
Thank you Mike and his Team to put an amazing conference together.
Every speaker taught me a different perspective and way of teaching kids, and the ones who inspired me the most are the ones who will show the kids playing and doing all the exercises. Sometimes listening and reading are not the best way to get motivating watching a video. Now I am so motivating to go out there and leave a little print to those kids who would like to start playing this amazing sport. Also, I love the interaction in the locker rooms and being able to listened to the ones who put this together was a pleasure.
Thank you to every single person who was part of this amazing conference. Looking forward to the next one.
OlegAugust 22, 2020
It was very cool and Im happy to be part of this amazing conference.
All presentations are cool, interesting and I learned so many new and useful things about children s tennis and how to work and behave with small kids.
Thank you so much from to all your team and coaches for the work done.
Jordan ZimmermanAugust 22, 2020
I greatly enjoyed the virtual conference. This was organized well, and I really am thankful I purchased the VIP to be able to view the videos at my own pace! With summer coaching in full swing in the US, it was difficult to get the most out of the locker rooms when you haven’t had time to catch up on the presentations! There are a few empty webpages on the website, including the Master Classes and Innovations tabs, and it would be nice to have a page with all of the sponsor information where we can go back over the redeem the special promotions we got for attending. All in all, I definitely feel that the value exceeded the price here, and I know the content contained within these presentations is going to help me set myself apart from the rest of the field. Thank you to all who took the time to organize and contribute!
adminAugust 22, 2020
Thanks for your comments Jordan. Yes we did have a few issues with a few elements too. Masterclasses will follow as we felt that it was too much to launch them with all the content we had and partner information can be found by clicking the logos on the homepage but we didn’t make that clear enough for sure. Thanks so much for taking the time to give us your feedback.
Hugo SantosAugust 23, 2020
Thank you Mike and Evilve9 team, for making this conference happened, it was a great week of great learning and evolving. Definitely many ideas to start implementing in our junior programme!
Robert BrkljacAugust 22, 2020
I have been participating in coaching conferences for years, including ITF and Tennis Europe conferences. It’s my game has exceeded my expectations. For the first time, I experienced all the lectures and additional content as a unique unit that, in addition to my existing experience and knowledge, gives me a system on how to improve my work with students in the clubs I work with. Thank you for the exceptional experience and knowledge, which I will certainly return to many times through the presented content. Excellent lecturers and participants. I feel that everyone gave themselves for us who participated and for better work with children. In the end, I conclude that this is also “It’s Our Game”. Best regards from Croatia
adminAugust 22, 2020
Thanks Robert. We know you are an incredibly competent and experienced coach so this means the world to us! Thanks again!
Dan BeedleAugust 23, 2020
Great information in an awesome format! Perfect for what the situation is. I miss seeing everyone in person but this is great to be able to view the videos with my schedule. Layout of topics and schedule was awesome. I love that we have access to the videos for a year. Plenty of time to implement one thing and be able to go back then implement another. Great speakers all around and excellent resources to help educate staff . Thank you to everyone that spent time to organize and set this up!
Michele ByrneAugust 23, 2020
I enjoy going to teaching symposiums as they motivate me and I like to learn what others are doing in their programs. This did not disappoint! Loved the opportunity to watch a presentation and then put it into action. Loved that I didn’t have to spend money for airfare and hotel and could still work while attending. But working made it difficult to keep up with the abundance of presentations offered.
Also really enjoyed the FB live opportunities to connect with the presenters…. I just wish there was a little more notice on when and who would be going live.
Thanks as always for all the hard work and passion your team has given to this project. Glad I got the VIP level so I have ability to view and review the presentations.
Mark KleingeldAugust 23, 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.
Great that we could learn, work, and network, all at the same time.
Great also that we can benefit from all the resources for another year as VIPs
Well done evolve9 !!
ANTONIO LUQUEAugust 23, 2020
Ha sido una conferencia excelente. Los temas abordados y las presentaciones realizadas por los ponentes han sido de un alto valor que nos será de gran ayuda a los que trabajamos con niños para hacer cada día el deporte del tenis más atractivo y motivador para ellos. La opción de vídeos grabados y membresía VIP por un año favorece que todos los contenidos puedan ser analizados con más detalle para su puesta en práctica..Enhorabuena a Mike, a todo su equipo, ponentes e inscritos ,por sus diferentes aportaciones. Deseo que sea la primera de muchas conferencias que vendrán en el futuro. Gracias por todo lo aprendido.
Kelly DayAugust 23, 2020
You all put together an amazing event/experience that will be remembered for a long time! I am still a few presentations behind but I am so thankful that they are things I can go back to for guidance. The facebook interactions are great. I was at the conference in Orlando (another amazing experience) and was sad to not be able to take another “working vacation” but this conference was unlike any other and the information that was shared will positively impact so many players. Thank you for putting together such valuable information for this age group. It’s great to go back into our clinics with a passion to teach and share the what was learned over the past week.
Can’t wait to see how you guys top this event! Consider me signed up already!
Gary TanAugust 23, 2020
Dear Mike and team, thank you for doing this. Great content and well structured. Only wished more people saw the value of this platform and participated. I especially loved menu of speakers (not ‘all’ the usual conference headliners) who are very very good at what they do in their own sphere who brought many pragmatic and usable ways to teach and run things at ground level. It was also a refreshing departure from all things high performance and instead focused on many learning and communicating paradigms. I especially enjoyed facilitating the locker rooms where people from all walks of the game came together to share their point of view, ideas as well as experiences which is amazing stuff. The specially curated themes were spot on although some presentations could receive deeper penetrations. All and all a top job and worth telling all the others about.
Jason WassAugust 24, 2020
Thank you to Mike and Scott for putting this event together. It was great interacting with everyone in the locker room and I look forward to staying in touch with all these incredible coaches!
Zhenya HorbikAugust 24, 2020
I wanna say bit thanks to the team of coaches that created this one of a kind online conference. Due to global pandemic and lack of communication with fellow coaches face to face, you guys did an amazing job of brining good quality content. Some ideas i started to implement right away. Some ideas need to take time
Nonetheless, looking forward for other conferences, because this kind of format definitely has potential!
Milos MarinkovicAugust 24, 2020
Conference was awesome
All the best to Mike and his team
You guys did great job
Theo EzekowitzAugust 24, 2020
