Goal: Upon completion, players should be able to serve consistently and play a full match. Game on!
Advanced Middle and High School Players 
This program is designed for high school team players and middle schoolers who play regularly in USTA sanctioned tournaments. At this stage of development, opponents are bigger and stronger, thus player fitness and conditioning is a determining factor for success. Classes are structured around a balance of instruction, strategy, drills, point play, and physical conditioning for both singles and doubles play. Players are grouped according to ability and age.
Goal: Students are expected to schedule outside match play, register for tournaments, and participate in off-court fitness conditioning to further the development of their game.

National Level High-Performance Training

Students accepted into this program have seriously committed to tennis, hold a high MATA ranking and compete in USTA sanctioned national level tournaments. Flexibility is developed through pre-and post-practice stretching. Students develop a growth mindset, a concept meaning big results are achieved through hard work. This principle will serve them both on and off the court. Acceptance into this program is highly competitive and requires approval by Damian prior to registration. 
Goal: Students work to play college tennis and beyond. We know dreams come true.
