Here’s an excerpt from this fantastic piece and a link to the full piece:
“David Coffer started the David Squad in 2006 and will train any player, Jewish or Arab, with the potential to excel in international competition…Named after ancient Israel’s King David, the David Squad has become the pre-eminent tennis academy in Israel.

“Not known for producing tennis players, Israel has seen that change slightly in the last few years thanks, in large part, to Coffer and the David Squad. Coffer started the David Squad in 2006 and will train any player, Jewish or Arab, with the potential to excel in international competition and the willingness to abide by a strict code of conduct.”
