"It's my passion to help players reach their goals and take them to a level that they've never thought they were able to reach."
Founder of Road to Pro. Inc
Director of RTP Tennis Academy
At RTP Tennis Academy, our world-class coaches have the experience to help guide
players and parents through their tennis adventure. Whether it is technique, physical, mental or emotional needs, we can provide the right tools at the right time to help the players breakthrough.
We believe that it is important to have the parents involved in the process of making a great tennis player. Our coaches have been former players, or parents of players, in the past to know exactly how it feels to be in that situation. As a former touring player/coach, we have the luxury to pick and choose the best coaches out there.
Finally, we approach "fun" in a different way than the traditional methods of having fun. We believe that winning is a huge part of "fun" in tennis. Having "fun" can help motivate players the right way. With proven methods and results in the past, we can take players to levels they have never imagined, by unlocking their potential.
