- A systematic/progressive training environment
The purpose of the High Performance stream is to help students maximize their potential as players and individuals. Graduates of the HP stream will achieve a high level of play and potentially go on to securing a U.S scholarship and/or will compete at the professional level.
The High Performance stream consists of 5 programs: Futures, Champions, Provincial, National, and International.
Futures (7-9 years old) Futures is designed for students participating in tournaments and hoping to play at the competitive level. Following the progressive tennis curriculum, the players play at ¾ court with orange court balls, the net lowered and the appropriate racquet sizes (23-25 inches). Students must enroll for a minimum of 2 lessons per week, including 30 minutes for warm up and physical development, 1 hour of tennis and 30 minutes of fitness.
Champions (9-10 years old) Students are now playing full court with green court balls and enroll for a minimum of two lessons a week. These players are already playing tournaments or plan on competing. This program includes 30 minutes of warm up and physical development and 1.5 hours of tennis per lesson.
Provincial (10-12 years old) Playing full court with standard tennis balls, the students are playing in the program 2-5 times per week and are currently competing in u12 events at the provincial level. This program consists of 1-hour physical development and 1.5 hours of tennis per day.
National (12-18 years old) This program provides a whole new level of intensity. Players train in this program 3-6 days per week, including 1 hour fitness sessions and 2 hour tennis training lessons. The main objective for most players in this program is to obtain a United States University tennis scholarship.
International (12 years of age – professional) This full time program is for the most committed tennis players who train up to 2 times a day (5 hours) and partake in 1 hour of fitness for up to 6 days per week. The main objective for most players in this program is to obtain a U.S. University tennis scholarship.
