Apex Tennis Academy (11-18 years old)
At Apex Academy, our mission is to provide you with Maine’s highest quality training environment for the aspiring junior tennis player.
Derived from Polish roots, our balanced coaching style encourages the new student to first develop consistency, situational awareness, and the ability to train well with others. All facets of the game are covered, including proper ball striking technique off the forehand and backhand sides, serve technique and variety, as well as proficiency at the net.
Power will come from use of the entire body, while ball control and placement will be learned from the hands. In time, individual strengths that arise naturally in the student’s game will be recognized, and developed into weapons.
Regular competitive match play (UTR) is strongly encouraged for all Academy participants. Applying learned skills in a competitive match situation will help the student build confidence, understand their own playing style, as well as realize any weaknesses to improve.
Throughout the sessions, much importance is placed on learning correct court positioning, strategy, and tactical awareness in both singles and doubles, as these skills are necessary for collegiate tennis. Fitness will also be included in the sessions.
Like any other sport, emotional control and positive attitude are critical elements for success and will be enforced at each academy clinic.
