ON OUR TRAVEL TEAM

INTRODUCING THE BEST SOLUTION FOR YOUTH TENNIS

TENNIS CENTRAL TRAVEL TEAM

Our Motto is “Practice and Competition Make Perfect”.  Our organization is focused on one goal: To bring out your child's best potential in every tennis category.

My name is Yann Auzoux and I am Tennis Central's CEO and Master Pro.  Let’s talk about my tennis track record because the ONLY truth I care about are results.  I have coached countless players and teams, and they have all achieved phenomenal results. On the ATP tour I coached both men and women. In college I coached both a women's and men's Div 1 Team.  For the last 17 years I have also been coaching a high school team that has been ranked #1 during the season and/or for the final league championship for 16 of those years.  Our juniors have and continue to leave their mark on every level of the tennis rankings.

We are proud of our record and can confidently say that we know how to coach winners.  We are not shy or humble about it. 

Here it is.  Every year I get a group of players that are eager to make the varsity travel team but most of them have never competed.  This is by far their #1 Achilles heal. As soon as we start the tryout matches, the inexperienced players that haven't been exposed to competition fold, and it is sad to watch them (and their parents who have invested lots of $ and time in tennis lessons) wonder what happened. 

 

The answer is so simple, it pains me to say it. No matter how good you may be at playing tennis, lack of competition WILL inevitably be the barrier to achieving any real success in tennis.  The sooner kids and parents realize the magic formula of PRACTICE + COMPETITION, the sooner they will hit their winning stride - and have real potential in both high school varsity as well as college.

So there you have it. It is such a simple formula but only about 5% of junior tennis players are implementing it!  Crazy, right?!   So, for the first time, we are making our unmatched winning expertise available to a select few that are committed to becoming better competitors.

 

So check out the options and lets start WINNING!

aboutus

We believe that competition trains winners and we want to make all our students experience the thrill and confidence that comes from winning and the tenacity and grit that comes from losing and getting better.  If kids spent even a fraction of the time that they "practice", competing in tournaments, they would exponentially increase the level of their tennis game.  

As a parent, you are busy with work and family responsibilities.  Committing to a consistent tournament schedule is nearly impossible if you have one child and let alone if you have multiples.  Plus, how do you figure out which tournaments are worth it? At Tennis Central, we understand your dilemma and have the perfect solution for you - one that is a WIN-WIN for everyone!

THE

FRICTIONS

  • My child loves to play tennis but in matches he loses to players that aren't as "good"

  • With tournaments lasting all day and often two days, I just don't have the time to commit the whole weekend to tennis

  • I already have to take brother/sister to their events and can't be two places at once

  • How do I know what tournaments to enrollment them in?

  • The tournament schedule is inconsistent and incohesive

  • The time between a match and their next lesson is too long so there is never a feedback loop that allows them to grow from their losses. 

  • I don't know what to tell them when they lose to help them improve

  • There is little connection between Competition/Instruction/Correction/Improvement (Developmental Loop Efficiency operates at 5%)

  • I don't feel that my TIME and MONEY are leading to sufficient IMPROVEMENT 

THE

BENEFITS

  • Kids are exposed regularly to competition in an empowering coached environment

  • Kids learn how to WIN

  • Parents drop off kids in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon - we take care of the rest

  • Development is maximized, accelerated, and consistent

  • Kids are coached through their losses by their coach as soon as they finish their match so they can immediately grow and learn

  • We provide a cohesive and intelligent tournament schedule

  • We maximize the symbiotic connection between Competition/Instruction/Correction/Improvement (Development  Loop Efficiency at operates at 100%)

WHERE IS IT?

From January 5 - March 17 the Tennis Central Travel Team will have weekend team matches as part of the Montgomery County Winter Tennis League.  All matches are held at local indoor clubs throughout Montgomery County.  Players do not need to be residents of Montgomery County to participate.  Starting in April, we will focus our energy on USTA tournaments in the Mid Atlantic Section.

We do have the option to take a team of players to Florida and Paris in the Spring and Summer of 2019.  

WHO IS IT WITH?

Celebrity Coach Yann Auzoux, Swedish National Champion Arijana Korac, and French team captain Alexis Baguelin, along with other high performance tournament coaches on our team. 

WHO IS IT FOR?

Girls and boys, ages 10 to 16 who are committed to competing 2 to 4 times per month.  Players will be assigned to groups based on their level of play. There are tournaments for all skill levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced) so we encourage you to apply.  There are only 28 spots available for this program, so we reserve the right to choose the final roster to guarantee a great experience for all.  The deadline to register the team is December 20th. Feel free to invite friends!

WHEN IS IT?

The Tennis Central Travel Team will start in January, 2018 and go through June, 2019. The team will meet weekly for competitions from Jan-April.  Starting in April, the team will meet twice a week at Holton for team practice and compete in up to 2 USTA and UTR tournaments per month based on the USTA schedule.

WHAT IS THE FOCUS OF THE COACHING?

We will address the following topics in our competition coaching:

 

1. Moving Flawlessly and Efficiently with Dynamic Fluid Footwork

2. Serving and Returning with Power, Variety, and Precision

3. Building a Tennis Player's Flexibility and Strength

4. Mastering Strategy and Mental Acuity

5. Owning the Transition and the Net Games

6. Exuding Fearlessness and Confidence

7. Playing with a Free Deliberate Mind

8. Decoding and Detering any Style of Play

9. Welcoming the Competitive Challenge

10. Activating the Warrior in You!!
