Final Destination Tennis Academy.
Why Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy?
Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy (JBTA) is an elite FULL-TIME ACADEMY for local, national, and international players. Jackson-Bridge provides their players the vehicle they need to maximize their development with all students receiving individualized instruction in a high-intensity and informative environment.
A priority of JBTA is developing a CEO mentality of leadership, focus, organization, self-discipline, team building, self-improvement and the daily grind of building something special. These elements combined with our comprehensive technical, tactical, physical and mental development systems are what makes us a final destination academy.
Following a Pro Tour model, we believe private instruction and player management should be included in every player’s development plan. All JBTA players are assigned a private coach based on the players game style and training needs. As a part of the individualized instruction, we create cohesion by updating parent with periodic evaluations.
JBTA places a very high focus on overall player fitness for improved performance and injury prevention. Players have to be strong, flexible, and quick to be successful in this sport. Our fitness program is 60-90 min daily and includes strength training, static and dynamic stretching, on-court and off-court sprint work, movement, agility, and body maintenance/physical therapy.
We have a two-fold evaluation method. The first part is our Performance Evaluation Assessment Key P.E.A.K. which assesses a player’s current ability and projects future proficiency. The second component of the method is our Competitive Edge Plan C.E.P. a roadmap for our players daily training. Player Evaluations are updated monthly for review.
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.
College Bound Training
The Jackson-Bridge PATH-TO-COLLEGE tennis program is for players who attend independent/online academic programs and are playing Junior Open to National tournaments. Players in this Path-to-College tennis program are typically ages 11-18, with the program customized for the specific needs of each player. College placement is offered to all of our Path-to-College players starting in Grade 10. Training modes include private instruction, athletic development, tournament prep, and mental toughness training.
On-Court: Mental Training
JBTA’s mental training consists of many parts like habit development (on-court, off-court), mindset training, career-specific disciplines, competitive fairness (no cheating), and on-court presence development. Our players are encouraged to know tennis history and research pro players that share their game style. These are some of the aspects we cover to build a complete player.
The goal of the Academy Learning Center is to provide a structured, supportive learning environment for independent study students. Individualized instruction, program coordination, and student accountability will be our primary focus. By providing individualized instruction and support for each academy student, we seek to provide an optimal educational experience.
Elite Tennis Academy & All Inclusive Multi-Sport Facility: Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy and Los Cab Sports Village have partnered to offer an all-inclusive sports training experience and elite tennis academy.
Los Cab is an ideal venue for total tennis training, and we are looking to make a substantial impact on junior development for years to come.
JBTA owners and directors Kevin Jackson and Mitch Bridge are excited to share a comprehensive tennis experience with the benefits of this facility.
Jackson-Bridge Tennis Academy is one of the few academies in California to offer the safety and comfort of on-site boarding with 24-hour supervision.
Los Cab Sports Village is the first multi-sport facility in SoCal with 23 courts, Olympic sized pool, 2 fitness centers, and on-site tournaments.
Being in the heart of Southern California, this allows JBTA players to easily access every level of tournaments offered from Los Angeles to San Diego.
SOCIAL & FUN
Besides the intensive daily training, Jackson-Bridge players experience a balance of hard work and social fun with team building clinics and match play events. Living in SoCal, there is no shortage of interesting venues to experience.
Events include going to the movies, the many beaches, SoCal landmarks, not to forget amusement parks like Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Six Flags Magic Mountain. To add an educational component, we will visit the many world-class museums like The Getty in Los Angeles.
Our students will also visit prospective college tennis team campuses like USC, UCLA and others with our COLLEGE PLACEMENT.
