Scoring, of course, is arguably the most important thing when it comes to snooker. But you will need to concentrate and focus on getting high breaks regularly to become a high tier player.
I firmly believe that if a snooker coach can improve a player’s overall knowledge of the game, then success is right around the corner. A coach achieves this through getting the player to focus on specific routines that are enjoyable but offer a constructive learning curve. A training program, such as this one, requires a strong player’s commitment. Through this, a player’s true skill level will present itself.
Over the years, I have come to learn that building a strong understanding of the fundamentals in the player’s technique is paramount. Equally important is how players practice as every player is different and operating under their own individual play style.
Many players are notable at potting balls. But to improve and realise one’s own potential, a quality training program is required.
