Coaching Mission


My Coaching Mission is to develop dedicated tennis players through sound coaching techniques and proven strategies.

Develop players who have the strongest self belief, desire to be the best and who are committed to maximizing their performance relative to their potential.

Developing an excellent work ethic, athleticism, the strongest personal values and accountability, a healthy diet and life style, a positive attitude, respect for others and impeccable sportsmanship and team work – on and off the court.



 A Facebook message from Hamilton South Eastern freshman Rachel Hawkin’s mother, Pam on Thursday 20th Ocober, 2011 – “Hi Des, hope all is well! Rachel is giving a speech in school tomorrow about you as an important person in her life!”

 ” I will share your message to Rachel. She’s very thankful for all of your positive support and encouragement on issues both on and off the court.”- This describes Des’ positive influence on Rachel’s life.
