A priority of Jackson-Bridge is developing a CEO mentality of leadership, focus, organization, self-discipline, team building, self-improvement and the daily grind of building something special.
This program is for serious players only! Jackson-Bridge believes that “burnout” is a lack of improvement or a lack of desire to excel in tennis. We are only looking for the highly-dedicated. Love of the game and the process of development is an absolute prerequisite to being a part of the program. We will push you! You will do all of the little things necessary for success. We will invest in your complete development and demand that all of our players “train like pros.”
What We Believe:
(1) Competition is about Execution
(2) Repetition is Mandatory because Proficiency = Results
(3) Our Role is to Manage Players & Educate Parent Managers
(4) Every Player must Improve & has Potential
The Jackson-Bridge method is designed to develop professional level skills by continually evaluating technical, tactical, physical, and mental proficiencies with the maturity of our players. We also work on our player’s overall personal development through education, culture, diet, and social interaction to help build character.
We have created a two-fold development method. The first part is our Performance Evaluation Assessment Key (P.E.A.K.) which assesses our player’s current ability and projects future proficiency to serve as a 360-degree player profile evaluation.
The second component of the method is our Competitive Edge Plan (C.E.P.) which is a roadmap for our players daily training. Players are continually evaluated through P.E.A.K. to ensure a direct training path to their long-term goal.
JBTA Do’s & Don’ts:
DO: We work in Small Groups to maximize development
DON’T: No After-school program to distract Full-timers
DO: Expect Academic excellence On and Off the court
DON’T: Allow Non-Head Coaches to manage players
DO: Require Fitness at every level of development
Jackson-Bridge uses one-on-one and small group training as the primary development aspect of our academy. Personalized information and constant feedback are vital to a player’s daily improvement, and the only way to obtain this at a high level is with excellent, top-level coaches and one-on-one and small group training as the bulk of the player’s training regiment in tennis as well as fitness.
