SPORTIME Randall's Island Adult Tennis Kinetics (ATK) Group Programs

Program Image 93
TENNIS KINETICS is an important component of SPORTIME’s approach to teaching the sport of tennis. This philosophy is based on the belief that the best way to learn the skills needed to play tennis requires the development of the essential movement skills that relate to them. Players learn how to strike the tennis ball as part of a sequence of reactions and movements that begin when their opponents strike the ball. Having players develop and execute the entire sequence for every shot in the game accelerates the learning process, and players quickly become capable of combining these sequences to play successful points.
Program Benefits include: 
  • ATK Launch Party:  All players enrolled in ATK programs are invited to join us for our ATK Launch Party. Meet the SPORTIME/JMTA coaching staff and other ATK program participants. For ATK players who sign up after the Launch Party, or who are unable to attend, simply contact Jason about getting rated. Keep an eye out for an Evite with details!
  • ATK Video Analysis:  Using video analysis software, a SPORTIME/JMTA Director will take video of you in action and tag feedback to your video clips. These videos will then be emailed to you and your SPORTIME private coach, if you have one. ATK players signed up for 34 weeks will receive a minimum of 4 videos during the season; those signed up for 17 weeks will receive a minimum of 2 videos during the season. Not included in ATK Competitive League.
  •  ATK Dynamic Warm-Up:  Jumping out of a car and immediately onto the tennis court without warming up substantially increases the risk of injury. And while we have terrific athletic trainers and physical therapists on staff, we prefer that you not have to avail yourselves of their services due to injury! So, at the beginning of each ATK session, coaches will run players through a Dynamic Warm-Up, including stretching and other movements, designed by our Performance team, and based specifically on the curriculum planned for that day.
Check out our full ATK Program menu and for more information about specific programs, call our ATK Director, Jason Shkodnik at (212) 427-6150, or email Make sure to look for our upcoming Mixed Doubles parties, Round Robin mixers and other special events, which round out our adult schedule throughout the year.
