randy pate tennis academy
We are a comprehensive tournament training program for players who want to compete at the collegiate level or higher. Less than 3% of junior players go on to compete at the collegiate level. For 28 years 100% of RPTA graduates have gone on to compete in collegiate tennis.
Coaches focus on building techniques, improving conditioning, and simulating match play through points and games. Each court is monitored by a coach and advancement is based upon on-court performance.
Coach Randy will work with each player in a semi-private setting each week on long-term development. The focus will be on developing weapons and game style that will translate to the collegiate level.
A private coach is provided for each athlete. The coach will work on tournament to tournament adjustments with students. For example, your coach will focus on correcting a weakness before the next tournament.
Coaches can learn as much or more about athletes in one weekend of competition as they can in a month of clinic. Coaches travel with athletes to tournaments to provide pre-match instructions and post-match analysis.
Athletes participate in yoga classes twice a week for one hour sessions. This time focuses on flexibility, relaxation, and stretching centered around the core muscles used in tennis.
