SPORTIME RANDALL’S ISLAND and the JOHN MCENROE TENNIS ACADEMY
Performance and Athletic Training for Adults and Juniors
SPORTIME Randall’s Island and the John McEnroe Tennis Academy provide a unique Athletic Development model for adult and junior players that encompasses all elements of strength and conditioning, sports science, sports medicine, and nutrition and hydration, to deliver a personalized program to meet each adult or junior player’s individual goals - from the professional athlete, to the JMTA student just beginning tournament play, to the deconditioned adult.
Our Athletic Development coaches, in cooperation with SPORTIME/JMTA tennis coaches if the player participates in group tennis programs and/or private lessons, identify fundamental movement faults, as well as physical, nutritional and other deficits, that may negatively affect a player’s performance or increase his/her injury risk.
Detailed Injury Risk and Performance Screening: Performed by a physical therapist or certified Athletic Trainer to ascertain areas of increased injury risk and those in need of improvement.
Detailed Performance Screening: Assessment of an athlete's movement competency, including on-court speed, strength and power production
Athletic Training: One-on One-Sessions
A Detailed Performance Screening is required prior to the first training session. If certain injury indicators are present, a Detailed Injury Risk and Performance Screening may also be required. After the applicable screenings are conducted, a training program is then designed to address any deficits or movement faults identified by the screening process, to improve performance, to decrease injury risk and to build the foundation for long-term athletic development on and off the court.
While technique and training are vital to the success of any player/athlete, nutrition, hydration and the ability to recover are keys to success both on and off-court. Program includes:
