The Blackman Tennis Academy is a full service tennis company that provides on court and off court tennis services for players, families, coaches and programs.
We specialize in high performance training for junior players. Our training is based on a deep understanding of stages of development and parameter-based teaching. At BTS, we believe that every practice must have clear objectives, and every player needs to follow a developmental plan in order to maximize their training.
A player’s competencies – technical, footwork and tactical, will dictate whether their training should have a teaching, training or competitive focus. All players should be developing in all three areas, but the progression should be from Fundamental parameter-based teaching, to Training sound stroke production using comprehensive footwork patterns, and then using those technical and footwork skills and applying within a tactical context in match play.
Becoming a great player takes a commitment from the both the player and the coach, to long hours of detailed, intentional and structured practice –in conjunction with appropriate competition. There are no short cuts, and stages cannot be skipped.
Players who commit to our training, will see themselves developing life skills that will enable them to become Champions on and off the court.
