Our Junior Tournament Training program is managed by several USPTA Certified and
USTA High Performance Certified coaches. Their goal is to develop young players into
the very best that they can be in all aspects of the game, affording them the best
chance at being successful at the Junior Tournament level, ITF Junior Tournament
level, College level and Professional level. It is a comprehensive program that
starts with developing a student/private coach combination that best suits the
players personality and technical and strategical needs. Guided by his or her
private coach, the player will participate in the appropriate group drill sessions
in order to sharpen their skills and compete against other players in both point
play scenarios and match play.
Each player will also be required to do on site physical training with our highly
trained certified training staff in order to maximize the players physical potential
and prepare the player for the rigors of tournament play. In addition we have a
world renowned sports psychologist that is ready and available for consultations and
often consults with the coaches if they have questions about a particular topic. In
order to fully be able to develop a tournament player various local and national
tournament matches will be attended, analyzed and during(split sets) and after match
coaching will be implemented.
This is an integral part of the developmental
process because it gives the coach a better idea how their student is competing, how
their strokes are holding up under the pressure and gives the coach/player a better
idea on what to work on during their private lessons. In turn this will make the
developmental process more productive.
This comprehensive program has had years of success developing tournament players
and has sent hundreds to various scholarship schools as well as Ivy league schools.
Over 25 of our players are significant ITF ranked juniors and a handful are world
ranked players. These statistics are important, but what cannot be quantified is how
much fun both the coaches and players have when on this journey. We consider our
program to be more than just tennis, we liken it to a home with a big family where
we help our family of players grow as people and help them reach their goals.
