Our High-Performance Pathway follows the USTA Player Development coaching philosophy and concepts that are instrumental in long-term development of outstanding players. Our goal is to help players develop tournament mentality backed by solid parameters, fitness, and strategic thinking. By providing an environment conducive to personal excellence and a progression-based teaching methodology, our program focuses on developing and attracting serious junior tournament players with high aspirations, such as college tennis and beyond. Continuation in the program is not guaranteed; players will be held at a high standard in terms of work ethic, coachabilty, and overall level of play, and can be removed if failing to maintain the desired standards. If you would like additional information about our High-Performance Pathway, including try-outs/evaluations requests, please contact our Head Pro Joao Pinho at email@example.com.
