Michael Ebert has been very successful in teaching and coaching young athletes in tennis over the past 30 years. From 2007 to 2013 he was Director of National Kids Tennis Development for the Austrian Tennis Federation (ÖTV). He is the author of the "tennis4kids Step by Step Development Program". Michael is well recognized as a national and international speaker and considered as one of the world's leading experts in kids tennis today.
Over the past 15 years he has also become an expert in the area of ball and play sports. He has been a lecturer at the BSPA (Bundessportakademie) for many years and since 2014, Michael has been the Director of the National Center of Ball School Heidelberg in Austria.
„Ball School Heidelberg has inspired me from day one. Its guiding principles have already accompanied my work for more than 15 years. Ball School Heidelberg has been the missing-link and the perfect addition for my tennis4kids-programs. The unique concept counteracts an early specialization and allows children to learn to play before they are trained sport specifically.
I'm very proud to have received the trust of Prof. Dr. Klaus Roth, to build up and represent Ball School Heidelberg in Austria. A big responsibility that I take very seriously and a big challenge for the coming years that I am looking forward to. I am firmly conviced that children, parents, teachers, trainers and all who come in contact with the Ball School Heidelberg programs will be equally enthusiastic.
I look forward to welcoming you as a cooperation partner in the near future or seeing you in one of our Ball School Heidelberg trainings programs.
