JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT

SPRING 2018

*All tennis programs are member-only 

Thank you for your interest in our Junior Development Program.

Our coaching staff is fully committed to developing college ready players through a clearly defined training structure and competitive pathway. We teach modern technique through the implementation of a comprehensive teaching and coaching philosophy designed to develop the technical, physical, and mental skills needed to win at any level.

The following groups and times will be offered from April 2 through May 17, 2018. Placement into the College groups will be determined by the Tennis Director and Junior Development Staff based on age, ability and desire of the player. We also offer an Academy Program for players wanting to accelerate their progress by coming four days a week. Please check with Andy Veal for more information and to see if your child is the correct level and there is room in the additional groups.

 

 THE COMPETITIVE EDGE COLLEGE PROGRAM

These groups are for junior tennis players competing in USTA sectional and national tournaments, highly ranked in Tennessee, and looking to continue their tennis careers in college. They are very physical groups, utilizing a college workout format with less time spent on technique and more on point play, point construction, patterns of play, and competing mentally. There will be an on court conditioning program, video analysis when necessary, plus ongoing evaluations for parents and players. Players are expected to compete in USTA tournaments and in additional practices on the weekends. These groups are by invitation only.
