A. Kids are grouped by ability and need. We also use Bump Games to allow the players to determine groups based upon results.
Q. How does your program work? (Ratio, techniques, training methods, …)
A. We offer our players the structured ATA training process which includes shot tolerance progressions, game improvement drills focusing on a variety of skills, point play with “bumping”, serving daily and then to embrace some of our Academy offerings we have added a couple of our Full Time offerings. Therefore, an additional hour to Monday’s and Friday’s sessions will be added for set play. We have added a half hour to the Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday sessions for Fitness. The goal is to offer a more well rounded product for those looking to streamline their training without having to “chase/manage” their kids set play, tennis training, fitness and more that we can offer in one program.
