For every 60 minutes of a match

Digital Courses Taught By Father & Son Duo

  • Champions throughout tennis history have been MENTALLY one step ahead of their opponents.
  • Mental competing happens during the 50 minutes per hour in a match, when the ball is NOT in play.
  • Learn the Methodology that has changed thousands of HITTERS into PLAYERS since 1984!

The Tournament Tough Methodology was created by legendary coach Carlos Goffi, former coach of John and Patrick McEnroe.  

Josh Goffi has worked closely with his father in refining the methodology and together they are re-launching Tournament Tough in the digital space.

Players who have trained using our methodology have achieved:

  • Grand Slam titles in Singles and Doubles 
  • NCAA Singles, Doubles and Team Championships
  • #1 rankings in USTA, NCAA, and ATP
  • Thousands of college scholarships
  • 50 minutes of the hour when the ball is in play

Become a PLAYER, not just a HITTER, by learning how to be Tournament Tough!

Our digital courses allow you to learn the Tournament Tough methodology of proven success in coaching competitive tennis players.

A mentoring program for junior players and their families

“Positive results happen when there’s a plan and the commitment to see it through!”

The Tournament Tough Player Parent Workshops were a one-of-a-kind, successful program for ranked junior players, their parents and coaches conducted in the early 1990s at all 17 USTA Sections. The concept was developed by Coach Carlos Goffi who believes junior players can benefit from a conducive environment provided by a synchronized Support System.
