360 Degree Evaluation
The JBTA 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 proficiency 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.
The Academy Learning Center at Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy provides a structured and supportive learning environment for independent study students. Individualized instruction, program coordination, and student-athlete accountability is our primary focus. Students are attending all grade levels (K-12).
