Choosing a Tennis Academy
Share:   

Question:

I have a child who is being recruited by a few tennis academies. As a parent, how do I handle these situations?

 

Answer:

Depending on what you are looking for in an academy, there are some things you should consider first. As in all areas of life, some things are a better fit than others, so do your research. And each academy has something a little bit different to offer than the other.

  • The main area you should look at closely would be to consider the personalities involved - you must find coaches with whom your child can relate.
  • Also take a peak at the other academy students, they will be the kids spending the most time with your child - do you have a good feeling about them?
  • You and your child need to meet any and all of the staff with whom your child willing be working.

If you have a chance, try and arrange to go for a long weekend or a week long training camp during the school year, perhaps fall or spring break. This will help you get a feel for what it will be like there on a more permanent basis.
