1. Pro Career Development

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. Training modes include private instruction, athletic development, tournament prep, and mental toughness training.

Tournament and career management is provided with the involvement from parent managers. Since all players have different areas of focus daily training may vary within the time slot (blocks). Typically players will train with 4-5-hours of tennis and 1-hour of fitness daily based on tournament schedules.

On-Court Training Blocks

All Path-to-Pro players receive a 1.5-hour private training block in the morning or evening being designated for technical instruction, technical and tactical drills, situational hitting, topical mental training, serve + return development, and tennis agility drills.

The second 2-hour block is a for competition with sets and point play, match tactics and routine training, and private hitting lessons. Local division one and tour players are brought in as hitting and match play partners for our Path-to-Pro students.

The third block will be fitness/athletic development. Path-to-Pro players will work with our Fitness Manager on specific development needs in a small group (2-4 comparable players). Depending on tournament schedules more or less fitness will be included.
