DEVELOPING SCHOLAR ATHLETES THAT CAN NAVIGATE THE WORLD! 

Hello parents and players!

 

We have officially outdone ourselves. In our quest to provide multi-dimensional experiences to our budding tennis champions, we have crafted the ultimate cultural & high-performance tennis experience - we call it LEAPFROG - because your kids jump over all the hurdles to access the perfect summer athletic and cultural experience. 

 

There are TWO TRACKS depending on the competitive level of the player - allowing us to craft an insane experience for both nationally-ranked competitive U14 players as well as more novice competitors from 12-15 years old.  As you will see, the tennis we have lined up is literally the best in the world, but we didn't stop there.  There will be cultural field trips to Versailles / Eiffel Tower / Louvres / Arc de Triomphe / and more, an official UNESCO Cultural Training, amazing food, and exposure to 60 different countries for worldwide friendships (all speak some English.)  Plus, parents can decide to join the fun too if they like!

So if this sounds like a great way to train your emerging scholar-athlete to navigate the world both in tennis and in culture while making international friendships, keep reading!

Travel to Paris

Lifetime Opportunity

Instead of grinding in tournaments in the middle of nowhere every weekend, SKIP THE WAIT – JUST LEAPFROG straight to the international level overnight.  Exponentially improve your tennis and competitive skills by playing on different surfaces, against different styles of play, and in STIMULATING environments.

SOLUTION

FRICTION #1

Wasted Time

For a young player to access endorsed international tournaments through the typical US route takes years of accumulating points by grinding through Level 8s, 7s, 6s, 5s, Regionals and then Nationals. Let’s not even talk about the family sacrifices that need to be made for this outcome to become a reality and the educational voids that will be created during the process.

Tennis is a World Circuit with 196 countries represented. Each country has its own cultural style of play. To MASTER tennis you need to be exposed and play all these different styles...why not start when they are young?

BOOST your child's education tenfold through real life experiences with foreign languages, social studies, and international cultures while accelerating their tennis improvement  AND having the time of their lives. . 

 

BOOST the brain AND the game!

SOLUTION

FRICTION #2

Wasted Brain

Developing into a world class player often means choosing tennis over education. Summers are filled with tournaments and athletic activities that are so demanding that they leave no room for culture and education.  It seems that it always this friction between "training" and "learning".  As parents you see the value of both sports AND education, but there are not many options for combining both. 

 

Why jeopardize intelligence for your sport of choice?

NO COMPROMISE – HAVE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE traveling historic locations and enjoying exclusive experiences while your champions compete. 

Make lasting family memories that all with enjoy

SOLUTION

FRICTION #3

Wasted Family Memories

Parents and siblings must sacrifice their family and leisure time to facilitate one child’s progression.  This creates hard decisions and compromises that are often heart breaking.

insanetennis

Here is the deal. we have secured an exclusive partnership with the PARIS OPEN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, the Premiere ITF tournament in the world for players under 14. This is an ITF Level 1, the equivalent of the “World Championship” for this junior category and attracts some of the best talent from around the world. Virtually all the top players in the world have played it for the last 30 years.

 

HINT: You can't even get invited into the tournament unless you are top 5 in your country.

Past players include the current break-through youngsters Zverev and Svitolina, but also include the likes of Kyrgios, Monfils, Ostapenko, Halep, Murray, and so many more.

Because of our unique connections and constant desire to improve and innovate the tennis experience, TENNIS CENTRAL is able to LEAPFROG a total of 8 US Nationally Ranked players into the qualifying rounds for what can be defined as the World Championship for U14.  A total of 4 boys and 4 girls that are deserving of such an honor can join the trip of a lifetime.

PLAYING EXPERIENCE

The tennis experience will be second to none. The agenda provides the structure of a world class camp in an exclusive country club setting in the historical Park de St Cloud in Paris' 16th Arrondissement during the world championships of 14U.

The coaching experience will be unmatched with the highest-grade Tennis Central coaching staff on deck. The ratio will be 1 coach for 4 players. Coaches present will all have experience with ITF grade tennis player development.  Think of them as Professional, Experienced, Certified, and Responsible.

 

Participants will play at least one endorsed red-clay tournament at their level of play and get a first-hand look at the exciting and inspiring international side of tennis. 

FITNESS SUPPORT

Serious players condition their bodies seriously for events of this caliber. For this reason, we will expose each player to what a true tournament preparation looks like with a careful and methodical process to help players peak at the right time.

 

The entire process will last 10 days. 

ACCOMMODATION

We have secured rooms at a 3-star hotel that is priced right and convenient for all aspects of our activities. It is 10 minutes from our training location in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. Since 80% of our activities will be spent off premise, we saved on the accommodation to splurge on the cultural and athletic piece. Each shared room has a private bathroom, cable television, and high speed fiber optic wifi.  They get special praise for their extensive breakfast buffet.  All meals are included.

 

CULTURE & EDUCATION

We spend our youth reading books and learning about historic places we never go to until later in life. What if we chose to experience our books’ content in real life? This is how we see the world, learning through real life experiences.  After 10 days in France (including our own UNESCO cultural training), your school should give you extra credits for all that you will be exposed to!

 

family activities

Why not make it a family trip combining sports, culture, food and entertainment in one of the most beautiful cities in the world?

 

Think cultural exposure through art, history, food, shopping, and any other request you may have.

 

For Parents who wish to experience Paris by night, let us supervise your kids while you enjoy your trip to the fullest.
