Witt Tennis is a comprehensive junior tennis developmental program for all kids, from beginners through NCAA™ collegiate level. Our focus is to provide a pathway for success allowing each athlete to develop a passion for the sport of tennis and to help them achieve their own individual goals.
Witt Tennis developmental programs are offered for kids ages six and up. Each athlete is evaluated and placed in a group that will best serve their individual development and meet their needs and level of commitment. We create a positive and fun learning environment which will challenge each athlete out of their comfort zone and assist in improvement.
Although we are a localized program, we welcome players from out-of-town as we typically have students join us during vacations and family visits to the area. We will be able to meet your needs as we have a wide variety of players training in our program at all levels.
Another integral component of Witt Tennis is our school tennis enrichment programs. These programs allow us to introduce tennis to kids on campus as an after school activity. We are currently running these enrichment programs at The Bolles School Ponte Vedra, Beaches Episcopal School, St. Paul's Catholic School, and Palmer Catholic Academy.
Our program utilizes the Quickstart method of learning with compression balls and modified court size which has a proven rate of success and creates an optimal learning environment. An integral component of our program is giving the athletes playing opportunities through the Jr. Grand Prix Circuit, Jr. Team Tennis, USTA™ Tournament play, and informal play days throughout the year.
Philosophies/Values (A, AA, AAA levels)
We strive for the students to first, HAVE FUN while learning to play the game of tennis. We help them to become better athletes by focusing on FUNamentals and the ABC's (Agility, Balance, Coordination). Each athlete through a progressive pathway will be challenged as they will move onto the orange and green dot ball building an athletic base along the way developing sound footwork and ball tracking skills. We will keep an emphasis on technique while improving rally skills and implementing strategy, tactics, and patterns of play. There is also a focus on learning life skills and building character.
Philosophies/Values (Majors, HP levels)
We still want our students to HAVE FUN at these higher levels while being more focused, disciplined and giving 110% effort at all times while learning how to compete. We want each athlete to practice and play at a high level while focusing on improving all technical skills, emotional / mental, and athletic / physical aspects of their games while keeping results and rankings secondary. Our goal is to create an environment of hard workers who understand that a strong work ethic will pay dividends. Teaching life skills is a key component for these groups as well.
We offer adult private, semi-private and private/team clinics. Danny Witt has a vast amount of experience and a passion for helping players of all levels improve their games and get to the next level. Please contact us for pricing and scheduling.
Outside of group programming, we also offer private instruction with coaches on our staff. This is an integral part of a player's development. Please contact us for pricing and scheduling.
Our Florida weather can be very unpredictable. All classes are "on until they are off." Coach Witt is at the courts prior to all classes so please text if you are unsure of the playing conditions. We will always try to hold classes as consistently as possible.
