Coaching & Methodology
Over the last three years I have coached my players at the highest levels of tournaments in the world. I have traveled with my players to more than 50 professional events, 20 D1 college matches between top 20 universities, 30 junior ITFs, and 15 USTA National Level 1s. During this time I have traveled throughout the United States and to 20 different countries for these events. You would be hard pressed to find another coach in the country who has witnessed the progressive levels of development in real time as I have. This experience along with the methodology we implement at the academy is the reason why our players achieve such amazing results.
Junior development is an extremely difficult situation to manage. Great results in the 12s and 14s often doesn’t translate to the higher age groups. Our coaching staff pays strict attention to always making sure our players are optimizing proper technique, professional footwork and tactical patterns that will translate to the highest levels of the sport. You never want to put a ceiling on a young player because he/she is in the wrong grips, or has the wrong swing path on their strokes, or is using incorrect footwork and tactics.
This is the difference in our teaching methodology. We invite you to come and experience the difference.
