Complete beginner-level students will be assigned a beginner NTC rating, enabling registration for an NTC program without the need for an evaluation. Please contact us at ntcprograms@usta.com so our team can assign the NTC beginner-level rating to your profile.

Our Transition Pathway focuses on players who are aspiring to become competitive tournament players but need to further develop before entering our High-Performance Pathway. While further emphasizing fundamentals, work ethic, and overall ball control, players will learn the necessary skills needed to be able to successfully be introduced to local and sectional competition.

High-Performance Pathway

Our High-Performance Pathway follows the USTA Player Development coaching philosophy and concepts that are instrumental in the long-term development of outstanding players. Our goal is to help players develop a tournament mentality backed by solid parameters, fitness, and strategic thinking. By providing an environment conducive to personal excellence and a progression-based teaching methodology, our program focuses on developing and attracting serious junior tournament players with high aspirations, such as college tennis and beyond. Continuation in the program is not guaranteed; players will be held to a high standard in terms of work ethic, coachability, and overall level of play, and can be removed if failing to maintain the desired standards.
