JMTA Tennis Training Camp
John McEnroe Tennis Academy Summer Training Camp
At JMTA, we train 52 weeks a year. Our intensive camp is designed for players competing in or striving to compete in Sectional, National and ITF tournaments, and those interested in playing high-school tennis, college tennis and beyond. Players, at any level, who simply want to be the best they can be, are also welcome!
JMTA Tennis Training
The JMTA Training Camp curriculum features a combination of drills, technical and tactical coaching, match play, and off-court athletic and cross-training, specifically tailored to the ages and levels of each JMTA player group. Our world-class directors carefully evaluate students, place them in small age and level-appropriate groups, and customize programs to meet their developmental needs.
JMTA Athletic and Performance Training
JMTA’s APT program is designed to help tennis players improve their on-court performance through increased strength, flexibility and mobility, and to reduce the risk of injury. New this summer, Sports Vision Training with Dr. Anne Hanna.
JMTA Mental Toughness Training
We believe that our capacity to determine an individual player’s on-court stress patterns, and to provide him/her with the tools to better manage stress at times of on-court adversity, to prepare to mount a comeback, or to remain calm when in the lead, is crucial to giving each JMTA student an “edge”. JMTA’s Mental Toughness curriculum is developed by JMTA Directors and coaches, and implemented on and off-court.
Our supervising coaches take videos of JMTA students in action, using video analysis software, provide verbal feedback tagged to the video clips and use annotation tools to highlight the verbal analysis. These videos are then emailed to the players, parents and coaches. JMTA coaches review and analyze practice and match play video, both of JMTA players and of professional players, with students, in individual and group settings. New for summer 2019 are PlaySight “smart courts” on courts 1-5.
