Welcome to the USTA BJK National Tennis Center Junior Tennis Academy.
Our Academy follows the USTA Player Development coaching philosophy and concepts that are instrumental in long-term development of outstanding players. Our goal is to help players develop tournament mentality backed by solid parameters, fitness and strategic thinking. Our High Performance Coaching provides a comprehensive “pathway” to excellence for serious junior tournament players. Our progressive development of physical, technical, tactical, and mental skills, along with appropriate competitive play, are essential in the development of top players.
Academy 3.0 / 3.5 / 4.0 and Up
Tennis Academy is offered as a 2 hour class, 90 minutes of on-court instructional part and 30 minute fitness and conditioning part. Juniors who apply for the Academy must be actively competing in sanctioned tournaments or have appropriate NTC ratings. Player commitment to excellence, an outstanding work ethic, and respect towards fellow students and coaches is expected. Players will be evaluated by our coaching staff and will be placed in the groups according to their level. Further changes in groupings may take place if the players demonstrate substantial progress. It is essential that players recognize the importance of working as a team to ensure the best learning experience.
