Dear Players and Parents;

Welcome back to Saint Andrew’s Tennis.

This year you will notice exciting new additions to our programs.  It is imperative that you set goals and have direction in your tennis endeavors, be it enjoying the sport of a lifetime with family and friends, or playing in USTA tournaments.

Perhaps your goal is to become a member of our Varsity (Middle and Upper School) Teams, playing in College, or going on to become a world class player.  This year in all of our programs (Lower, Middle, and Upper) we are highly recommending that each student sign up for the semi private lesson packages.  These packages are designed to give your child more personal direction and to help in the developmental process of becoming the best that your son or daughter can be.

In our Lower School program your child will establish monthly goals.  These goals will be monitored on a point board.  Players can accumulate points in the following categories; physical, mental, and life skills.  Prizes will be awarded monthly.

Middle and Upper School players will be competing in skills competitions for placement on the “Wall of Fame” board.

To complete our year, we will hold our annual tennis banquet in April.  Throughout the year we will be looking for outstanding Humanitarian, Sportsmanship, Stewardship, Work Ethic, Team Spirit, Most Valuable Player, Most Inspirational Player, and Scots Service Award.

Looking forward to a fun and exciting year!!!

Your Scots Coaching Staff

Scott, Ron, Diego and John

High School Varsity
 
Vision We all know that tennis is an independent sport (one on one or two on two) High School Varsity Season is one of nine opportunities to experience what it is like to be part of a tennis team. The other opportunities typically are Middle School Team Tennis, U.S.T.A. Zonals, Jr. Davis Cup, Davis Cup, Fed Cup, College Tennis, Professional Club Tennis, and various levels of league.
 
High School Tennis provides an amazing opportunity to learn and understand what pulling together on a team can be. This means Serving your team and your teammates first, and thinking of yourself second.
 
We are blessed to be in South Florida where we compete in the toughest Academy Fed District in the United States. Academies that feed players into our district at the state level are: Bollettieri’s, Evert Tennis Academy, Rick Macci’s, and International Notable players that have played in our District our Andy Roddick, Mardy Fish, Vince Spadea, and Corina Morariu. The latter two players are both Saint Andrew’s graduates.
 
College Coaches want to know if you can put not one but two points on the board for their team. Singles and Doubles play is what our team focuses on. We take great pride in our development of successful doubles teams.
 
In High School tennis you play against all ages, sizes and strength of opponents, not just players in your age group.
 
High School tennis gets great press! Win a Super Series or Local tennis tournament and you might get a line. Win your district or pull an upset in High School tennis and you may be featured as athlete of the week. New papers in South Florida cover the game of tennis extensively.
 
Goal - To provide a team experience to our High School students that will help prepare them for life and future college team experiences.
 
A Varsity - We had 93 players turn out for our Varsity Team in 2010!
 
Only the top 8 boys and girls make the A Varsity Team and represent the school for the FHSAA rankings.
 
The A Varsity plays against State Championship teams and District Championship teams from throughout South Florida.

Travel Coaching Program both local and nationally
Parent-Coach Association
 
The game of tennis at this point in time is such an athletic and demanding game. Players must commit to an injury prevention workout program and a fitness program to become faster and stronger than their opponents. You can no longer be, one-dimensional on the tennis court. You have to learn to play the game outside the lines and have the ability to hit different speeds and spins as well as being more consistent than ever before.
 
As coaches we will offer a more complete program to help our Student Athletes become champions PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND SPIRITUALLY.

Lower School Tennis I (Grades K-2)
 
Vision: To develop a life-long passion for the game of tennis
 
Goal: To create our Varsity Players of tomorrow
 
Themes: Here is where the journey of developing a passion for tennis begins! Each “theme” week (i.e. Movie week, Character week, States week, etc.) provides students with a variety of challenges that develop their basic motor skills of movement, catching, and throwing. These skills are transferred to rallying, forehands, backhands, volleys, overheads, and serves. This is accomplished while learning how to compete against one another over mini nets on 36’ courts using foam balls. Students can play their way up into Level II.
