Dear Players and Families,
We are excited to start our Fall Program (August 24th- November 1st) after a busy summer on the courts! We’re excited to see our current students again, and extend a special welcome to our new families to the 9th year of the Tennis Academy here at Windermere Prep from our amazing team of tennis coaches.
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 a 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. For those not ready for commitment to a team, don’t worry! We also have a ladies Open clinic! All levels welcome!
The 2015/16 school year sees us continue our tennis curriculum with our ” Steps to Success ” format, pioneered by our Executive Elite Director Howard Jones, which allows a pathway for our youngest beginner players to achieve their ambitions whether it is social, school team, tournament or college.
Our Tiny tots (PK3) children and our Munchkins PK4/K/1st Graders 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.
As USTA members we are thrilled and excited with the relocation of the USTA to Orlando and will be working with the Federation for the development of our players. In addition, we are thrilled to have appointed Etcheberry Fitness to provide tennis specific fitness for our players.
The week of August 16th, our coaches will be available for assessments and meetings with parents to discuss your children’s goals and schedules by appointment -call 407 928 6666
Finally, on Saturday August 22nd from 9.30-11.30am we are thrilled to announce our OPEN MORNING. We will be having fun games for the kids, beat the coach, measure serve speed, complimentary clinics and exhibitions from our elite players. Our sponsor WILSON will be there with the latest rackets to demo, equipment and prizes.
