The Afternoon Academy
The Afternoon Academy is geared towards 12-and-under players who are committed to an intensive training program, but are limited due to school schedules. This program is designed for players wanting to develop the fundamentals needed to become world-class junior players, and ultimately college or professional players.
The Afternoon Academy’s main focus is directed towards movement and competition, including technical and tactical elements. The overall speed of the tennis ball is increasing due to equipment technology and athletic conditioning, hence the importance of efficient and explosive movement and footwork.
- The ability to “see” the ball early
- First reaction to the ball
- Contact moves (footwork before, during and after contact with the ball)
The program will provide specific drills and competition to learn these skills.
Students enroll in the Afternoon Academy on an annual or semester basis. We do have a limited enrollment in order to keep the coach-to-student ratio small – make sure to sign-up early to reserve your spot in the program!
Training will start at 3:45PM and it will end at 5:45PM Monday through Friday. In addition we will offer the Developmental program from 3:00PM to 3:45PM for those students looking for one-on-one coaching.
