Program Highlights:

The Saddlebrook System is a comprehensive program that gives students the opportunity to work on the total game of tennis including: technique, endurance, competition, athlete performance and fitness, and mental conditioning.

Weekly Theme — Students focus each week on a specific theme which can include strokes such as; groundstrokes, net play, and serving or concepts such as; quickness on the court, mental toughness, depth and consistency. Students are grouped based on ability and work on drills, point and match play, all focused on the central theme for the week.

Competitive Environment — Students train with their peers pushing them each and every day to raise the level of their game. They engage in ladder matches as well as practice matches so that they gain experience competing against all different levels and styles of players.

Coaches — Students work with the same core group of coaches every day during each quarter. Their coaches are able to track student progress and focus on improving all aspects of their game with consistency.

Player Accountability — Students have a great opportunity to take their game to the next level but it will be up to them to reach their potential. Starting with their performance profile students must be constantly setting goals for themselves and focusing on achieving those goals. Additional tools such as match evaluations and mental skills training will help players become a tougher competitors.
