Fitness and physical performance training
Our Academy Coaches customize each player's fitness and conditioning program to work on each player's specific individual physical performance needs. This program addresses specific movements required by a tennis player to enhance the athlete's ability to execute footwork and movement through improved endurance, agility, speed, flexibility, core strength and explosive movement. Training sessions target all of the player's strengths and weaknesses in both group sessions as well as private training to ensure that all of our Academy players are improving their physical abilities to ultimately become better tennis players.
With our world class developmental pathway, we pride ourselves on developing players that are not only great tennis players, but wonderfully well-rounded individuals that have all necessary tools to succeed as student athletes. With our college placement program, we have worked relentlessly over the years in building great relationships with hundreds of college coaches. We are proud to say that some of our players have attended some of the very best Universities on both tennis and academic scholarships.
Our college placement program assists our students in every part of the college admissions process, starting with providing our players with an excellent recruiting video showcasing their talents. We assist in communication with college coaches every step of the way. We also prepare our players for their official college visits and interviews, and accompany them if necessary. Academically, our program provides SAT and ACT prep work for all of our players. Instead of the usual stress endured during the college recruiting process, we ensure an exciting and enjoyable experience for the students and parents by taking care of the player's needs on and off the court to make sure the recruiting process is a seamless and rewarding time for the families.
We have placed over 25 young athletes in Universities on scholarships, with some of our players featured on NCAA championship teams. Some of these players have continued on our developmental pathway and further progressed on to the ATP and WTA Tours.
