tennis camp and
weekly programs

Our program has two unique training sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

The morning session includes two hours of stroke production and technique development. The focus of the afternoon session is point development and match play. The students will have one hour of on and off-court conditioning and weight training three times per week. Our method of two training sessions per day will allow the student to assimilate the instruction effectively.

Our high-performance Academy has a track record of helping players reach their potential. In addition to academy training, players will be given a chance to train with the best players and engage in match-play, conditioning, mental training, video analysis, and player analysis.

advantages

ENHANCED SWING

PRODUCTION

We use a proven 6-step systematic training method to establish sound fundamentals in the golf swing. With our biomechanics background, we focus on teaching the student how to properly use their body to build a motion that will last you a lifetime. 

ON COURSE COGNITIVE
STRATEGY

The advantage of our full time program is we have the ability to play on the course 5 days a week over a 10 month period of their stay. This allows us to focus more on the art of golf and scoring. We focus on, course strategy, mental routines, shot making, decision making, and situational shot selection.

DRILLS

We emphasize continual development in each student. Each student is given a personal technique plan or drill card. Drill cards outline specific technique goals along with personalized drills for each goal. Doing this over a 10 month period helps the students accelerate their development. 

COMPETITION

We are one of a few academies that focus on daily competition. We compete on the course against other students five days a week. We are fortunate enough to play 18 holes every Saturday with organized competition. This allows our students to develop their competitive edge further, create a comfort zone in competition, and sharpen their skills under pressure. 

PEAK PERFORMANCE
