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
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.
will also be required to do on site physical training with our highly trained
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.
