Designed for tournament level players making a commitment to intensive year round training focusing on player development and competition. TAS has developed a congruent teaching method with set skill progressions for entry level tournament training through professional level training. TAS staff use repetitive drilling to make shot selection and execution second nature. Emphasis on physical, mental and emotional training helps juniors improve performance under stress. Rigorous training on and off court combined with regular pattern/set play develop critical match skills. Through intensive training and competition, juniors learn time management, goal setting, delayed gratification and discipline, life skills that will help them conquer obstacles on and off the court. TAS Academy consists of 2 programs: Performance Academy and High Performance Academy. Performance Academy offers training for juniors 12 to 18 years. High Performance Academy provides more intense training for juniors 7 to 18 who commit to a schedule of tournament play and continuous improvement. We offer both after school and home school options.
