The 2015 Academy Summer Training brochure is now available:
The New England Academy of Tennis participants hold a combined total of over 800 USTA tournament titles including 12 sectional championships, 8 national championships, 5 individual state high school championships and 37 regional and national sportsmanship awards. In addition, over 90% of Academy graduates go on to play college tennis. Our coaching staff has over 120 years of combined experience working with competitive junior tennis players.
The Academy provides athletes with a training environment that integrates all aspects of being a competitive tennis player, including modern and advanced technique, tactical development, physical skills, mental skills and nutrition. In addition, we have a resource center connected to our website with on line learning modules, a video library and a parent resource center directed by David Benzel of “Growing Champions for Life”.
New for the 2014-2015 season, the Academy technical training model will feature bio-mechanical advancements in groundstrokes and the serve that are new discoveries and trends in the professional game. Through advancements in high speed and 3D video technology we are able to observe technique at 500 frames per second, far faster than the human eye can observe and process. At the Academy, we work diligently to bring the most current of all trends in the sport to athletes training under our guidance.
Also new for 2014-2015, Academy players can attend the fitness and conditioning program Monday - Thursday either 4:30-5:15 or 5:15-6:00. This will allow players the opportunity to incorporate another conditioning day or two to their weekly schedule.
If you have the commitment and desire to push yourself as an athlete, we will equip you with the tools that will help you achieve excellence on and off the court.
With the ever increasing demand for private lesson time, we have created a new instructional model utilizing video and computer technology. Video packages will be offered in blocks of time. The player will be able to view their lesson on a secure, password protected site.
