TENNIS ACADEMY TRAINING
ACADEMY CAREER PATHS
Although each player is unique all player must choose a career path within the two main destinations, College and Professional. JBTA offers training for both paths. Our evaluation method assist players in making that decision.
The Jackson-Bridge PATH-TO-COLLEGE tennis program is for players who attend independent/online academic programs and traditional high schools playing Junior Open to National tournaments. Players in this Path-to-College tennis program are typically ages 10-22, with the program customized for the specific needs of each player.
*Customizable Programs *College placement *Private instruction *Fitness *Tournament Team *Mental Toughness Training *Parent Manager Training
Our PATH-TO-PRO program involves systematic training designed by KEVIN JACKSON and MITCH BRIDGE. The player roster is limited to 4-6 players. Players are typically ages 12-30 years with 5 to 7 years playing experience and are competing in National to ITF tournaments.
*Private instruction *Fitness *Tournament Team *Mental Toughness Training *Parent Manager Training
Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy (JBTA) full-time students receive comprehensive player evaluations to make the development process efficient and effective. Our evaluation method systematically identifies developmental strengths and weaknesses to pinpoint specific skills a player is lacking.
360 Degree Evaluation
Our Performance Evaluation Assessment Key P.E.A.K. assesses our player’s current ability and projects future proficiency to serve as a 360-degree player profile evaluation. All students are rated using a 45-point technical, tactical and mental toughness proficiency metrics.
Individualized Development Plan
The second component of the method is our Competitive Edge Plan C.E.P. which is a roadmap for our players daily training. After reviewing the results from the Performance Evaluation Assessment Key, we are able to define proficiencies and deficiencies allowing us to design a development plan. The plan gives the player 3-9 month goals.
Work The Training Method
There are 4 components in our daily training program (1) Private Instruction, (2) Repetition Drills, (3) Tactics/Competition, and (4) Athletic Development. Since every player has their own unique plan and skills to develop the players learn to increase their focus and time management skills. All players are mentored through the daily mental challenge of intensive training.
Results Review & Plan Modification
Although this is an ongoing process, we review our student’s overall progress every three months. In that review, changes may be made based on what we, the coaching team and the player, quantify as adequate progress. As players develop a mastery in areas that were deficient we re-evaluate to find the weakest areas in their game to begin the process at their current level.
