Advanced Academy recognizes the need for intense training that is conducive to every individual’s progress. We are able to address a student’s “entire game” with a combination of drilling, strategy, mental preparedness, patterns of play, point set up and match play. To ensure a high level of technical development, we utilize soft court training to promote good footwork, sound tactics and a disciplined approach to playing extended points. We have also incorporated a once a week food program where our juniors learn the importance of ‘performance eating’ and have the opportinity to enjoy a prepared healthy meal. One day a week yoga class with a certified yoga instructor is included to teach the juniors how to listen to their bodies, stretch and meditate. In addition to good court performance, we also encourage students to concentrate on their education, develop good character, sportsmanship, and overall integrity. The I’On Club’s goal is to produce well-rounded and educated athletes that are prepared for college and after.
The Advanced Academy is an invitation-only program that runs year-round. By limiting enrollment, we are able to ensure a more personal atmosphere and provided more one-on-one time for each player enrolled in the Academy. It’s our way of affording each student the individual time necessary for his or her ultimate success.
