10 And Under Tennis
We continue to emphasize the development of our young players with USTA trained Coaches. Our 10 And Under Tennis Program is designed to start these players rallying and playing right from the beginning in a new, exciting and fun filled environment. Through the use of softer balls of different sizes as well as modified court size and net height, our youngsters are thriving. They are taking fuller swings with racquets of the correct length. Slower balls, smaller courts and lighter racquets enable our kids to have longer rallies. As always, we put a premium on having fun and encourage our kids to love this wonderful game.
Junior Tournament Training
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.
