Custom High Performance Clinics (All Ages)

These clinics are by evaluation only. Each group is specifically tailored by age and level with only 3 players per court. By creating custom groupings, players will enjoy a more personalized clinic experience designed specifically for them. In addition, all players and parents will receive a player development plan created by one of the highly trained pros. The player development plan takes the long term and short goals of the player and designs a pathway in which to achieve them. Utilizing the player development app: ACES, parents and players will be able to access these plans, receive weekly performance updates, and track player progress from any smartphone. A 20-30 minute consultation is required for the pro to ascertain the player goals, discuss the pathway, and offer a tutorial on the use of ACES. Maximum of 3 players per court. Contact the club directly (phone, email or in person) for evaluation for the high performance clinics.
