Welcome to the 8th year of the Tennis Academy here at Windermere Prep School which runs all year round and is open for all ages and abilities from absolute beginners to State Tournament Players.We are taking reservations NOW (places are limited) for the first summer 2015 program which commences on 6th April and runs for 7 weeks.We will then commence our second program which begins on May 25th until August 14th.Our coaches will be working all summer long whether it be camps(click program menu above for summer camp registrations) ,lessons,or clinics and we welcome all members of the local community and international visitors.
We provide classes for our cute tiny tots in PreK3 all the way through High School. Our Elite Tennis Program (see www.elitetennisusa.com) is designed for tournament players of all ages with college aspirations. We liaise closely with the wonderful college guidance counsellors at WPS to help us create the most effective academic and athletic schedule for each player.
We are thrilled to cater for parents in our Tennis Academy program and currently have two resident WPS ladies teams playing in The WAIT league. For any new WPS moms, our ladies clinics are a great way to meet other parents and get fit in a fun and social environment and all levels are welcome.
The 2014/15 school year sees an exciting advancement in our programming with our “Steps to Success ” pioneered by our Executive Elite Director Howard Jones, which allows a pathway from our youngest beginner players to achieve their ambitions whether it be social, school team, tournament, and college.
Our Tiny tots (PK3) children and our Munchkins PK4/K/1st Graders will now have a detailed training plan to include specific exercises designed to develop hand eye coordination, motor learning, footwork, agility and movement. These are essential skills necessary in enhancing children’s foundational development for tennis and sports in general.
Finally as USTA members we are thrilled and excited with the relocation of the USTA to Orlando and the partnership with UCF and already have developed dialogue to work together.
