Lior Doron (B.A., D.S.A., M.Sc) ldoron@tspa.ca 514-886-9929 

Academy Director 

$70 per hour.

Lior is the Academy Director of TSPA and a certified tennis pro from the Tennis Professionals Association (show me). He carefully plans the hiring of the TSPA Dream Team, is passionately involved in the marketing and is the liaison with the city  / board of directors while planning new advertising and marketing strategies, creating partnerships with local businesses and crafting theme days, special events and much more. 

Lior's education stems with an undergraduate degree specialized in psychology. He then pursued his graduate studies with a sports administration diploma from the John Molson School of Business. His thirst for knowledge led him to apply and successfully complete a Masters in Physical Education with an emphasis in sports psychology. This degree trains students to build sports psychology programs with elite and high performance athletes so that they may create, recreate and maintain flow in their sport. Founded in 2003, Lior is also the president and owner of Flow in Sports. The site is designed and dedicated to help athletes, students and individuals create, recreate and maintain flow or reach peak performance in their lives. Coach Lior Doron has earned certification in the sports of tennis as an instructor, hockey as a referee and coach (intermediate level), baseball as an umpire and was a qualified rock climbing instructor. He also also taught and coached volleyball and basketball.

Lior has taught mainly in the high school system for almost eighteen years. 

Lior  is strictly against an all work and no fun lifestyle. Many a times, he broke free in the summer and worked in camps namely as a counselor, volleyball instructor and a land sport supervisor. Working up the food chain, he worked for international companies such as Club Med as a tennis G.O. during three different seasonal contacts. He lived in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Other contracts included working for Royal Caribbean International aboard seven different world class cruises as a junior cruise animator. This gave Lior the opportunity to travel aboard one of the world's largest cruise ships. Sailing literally all over the world allowed Lior to explore a variety of landmarks while being sensitized to the vast cultural and ethnic diversities that exist among us.
