Academy Program: Offered on Monday through Friday during the School Year

 Our High Performance Tennis Academy has produced many Division I college players throughout the last 30 years. 

This program enables players to get in the extra training they want while still attending school. Players have the choice of training 2 or 3 hours per day and as many days per week as they would like.  Tennis training includes drills, point play and match-specific situations that focus on the development of competitive strategy and mental toughness. Training includes technical, tactical, physical, mental and emotional development. Each player’s speed, agility, balance, and quickness will be improved through the use of tennis-specific footwork drills and plyometrics. This program will be under the supervision of Bill Clark, who will establish the daily lesson plans and developmental programs for each player, as well as goal-setting and tournament scheduling to provide a well-defined developmental pathway. Bill will work closely with our highly-trained, skillful and enthusiastic coaching staff to make sure that everyone is working toward the goal of improving all aspects of the player’s game.

Training hours are:  Monday - Friday;  3:30 - 5:30 or 4:30 - 6:30 or 3:30 - 6:30.  Price is determined by the number of hours of training.

We allow you the flexibility to create your own training schedule.  You many train as few as two days per week or as many as five days per week.  We have players of all levels every day of the week.  There is a two-time a week commitment to attend the academy.
