Paola Longoria Experience Update 2017

August 22nd, 2017 Comments off

CONGRATULATIONS to PAOLA LONGORIA for winning the 1st Tournament, a Grand Slam,
of the 2017-2018 Season in San Luis Potosi, MX

Paola Longoria, the No. 1 ranked female racquetball player in the World, won her second tournament of the new season on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) with me coaching her court side. Paola’s win in the Women’s Professional Singles Division at the “Toreno Milenio” Tournament in Tijuana comes just a week after she opened the 2017-18 LPRT Season with a win at an event in her hometown of San Luis Potosi, making it back-to-back wins.

Paola Longoria, who has finished as the No. 1 ranked racquetball player in the World on eight previous occasions on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT), began the 2017-18 season in the same dominating fashion. At her namesake ‘Paola Longoria Experience’ tournament in her hometown of San Luis Potosi, MX, August 18-20, 2017, Paola won both the Women’s Professional Singles and Doubles Divisions. The fives days of intense training  with me prior to the tournament on the court tweaking the technical aspect of the game along with playing and working on the strategy & tactics of the game, plus working off the court with her Personal Trainer, Efrain, and her Sports Psychologist, Magaly, paid big dividends.

There are not many professional athletes who have an event named after them while in their prime, but Paola is no ordinary athlete! She is a previous 2-time winner of Mexico’s National Sports Award, on Forbes Magazine’s Top 50 Most Influential Women in Mexico list and was her country’s flag bearer at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Paola’s win to kick off the new LPRT season became her 83rd Professional Women’s Singles tournament title of her career. Paola holds more individual professional event titles than Tiger Woods (79), John McEnroe (77), Serena Williams (72), Billie Jean King (67) and Andre Agassi (60).

Championship Racquetball Camp Series August Update 2017 with Fran Davis & Rocky Carson

August 12th, 2017 Comments off

Championship Training Camp 2017 w Fran Davis & Rocky Carson at Rocky’s house for Welcome Party.

My Championship Racquetball Camp Series presented by HEAD/Penn was a special edition this month, as Rocky Carson (#1 in the World & #2 IRT Pro Player) joined me July 31st-August 4th at the Club Sports Renaissance in Aliso Viejo, CA for an Elite or higher level training camp. I have been Rocky’s coach since 2010 and together we brought a wealth of knowledge, years of experience and tons of information about how to develop a “championship game.”

Players flew in from all over the country like, Wayne Antone & Mitchell Turner (OR), Jordan Cooperrider & Gracie Wargo (FL), Luis Avila, David Hester & Henry Morales (CA) and Ethan Janson (WA).

The camp was designed with lots of high level drilling, playing, critiquing, one-on-one sessions with Rocky and me, video/video analysis, footwork drills, mental toughness skills, as well as designing game plans and training schedules.

As a bonus we had so many fun activities planned for the campers like a Welcome Party hosted by Rocky & his family, pickleball, outdoor racquetball, surfing, beaches, relaxing by the pool and a farewell BBQ at Rocky’s house.

We had some very happy campers who learned all the aspects of the game from the physical skills, to the mental skills, to the strategic skills, to the conditioning skills, which are all integral parts of “becoming a champion.”

Here are a few testimonies and pictures that tell the story:

  • “The Fran Davis Championship Training Camp is one of a kind, not only do you get to work with some of the greatest current pro players, Rocky Carson, and past pro players, Jason Mannino, but you also get to work with Fran Davis, the BEST COACH on the planet. Not to mention the activities outside of racquetball was great fun as well.”
    Wayne Antone, Eugene, OR – Boy’s 18 Champion 2016 & 2017
      • “This camp and these videos are a huge help, and I know this will help me make that leap into the pros in no time. Thank you Fran for your time and letting me pick yours and Rocky’s brain for the sport I love and that I wish to spread to the young kids.”
        Luis Avila – So. CA
      • “So many GREAT THINGS about Coach Fran’s training

        methods and camps!  Last week’s Camp not only elevated my game, but has given me a clear path to train and succeed.  It is so awesome to have things “click” on the court after drilling and playing the game as Coach Fran inspires.  Thank you, Coach, for teaching me how to train correctly and elevate my AWARENESS on the court.  Too many times, I’ve watched you open the eyes of players, including pros… enough to know that your training and camps are fit for everyone.  It’s no coincidence that I’ve moved up a level AND won tourneys each season under your guidance!  One of the best decisions I ever made was to take one of your camps only 3 weeks after trying racquetball for the first time.  THANK YOU!!!!
        Ethan Janson – Seattle, WA

  • “Fran Davis Championship Training Camp is guaranteed to elevate your game. Getting to work with as well as see the lifestyle of the top professional player, Rocky Carson, as well as getting pro expertise from Coach Fran Davis shows you what it takes to be on top. I definitely recommend this camp to anybody looking to take their game to the next level.”
    Mitchell Turner, Salem, OR – Boys 16 Doubles Champion 2016 & 2017
