Our program is designed to suit players from any age group and level of play, whether they are a beginner, intermediate or advanced player. We focus on fundamental skills for beginners and intermediate players by improving their technical and tactical skills. These are the fundamentals of the game, and through a 4 step method used by our coaches starting with ball dropping, hand tossing, racket feeding, and rallies, we develop their skills targeting their errors in specified drills. Each clinic we train our players on a particular skill or stroke, using equipment and the correct court size/ball level in order to give them a chance to hit the ball and work on that given stroke.
With the support of our partners, the USTA( United States Tennis Association ) providing us with training equipment. All tennis courts used for the weekly clinics and seasonal camps are reserved through Facilitron, which allows us to continue developing our players by assuring us the use of the courts we need.
