This innovative program is designed to introduce youngsters to this lifetime sport. All of our professional staff teaches this class keeping the emphasis on fun and learning.

This program focuses on taking our juniors to the next level. The objective is to continue learning the basic fundamentals and techniques of the game and develop those skills to attain a national ranking and college scholarship. The player will be consistently pushed with regard to his/her fitness and their mental toughness within competition. We will focus on improving stroke production and tournament preparation. We introduce match play and encourage these children to start playing USTA tournaments. We support all the local middle and high schools and encourage USTA Junior Team Tennis participation. A player may participate in our academy for 2, 3 or 4 days per week.
DTA is a unique program. All of the players physically train together and travel together to tournaments or special events to create a sense of community and responsibility. Each player will feel they are part of a team. This is very important in what is a very individualistic sport. Our older more experienced players are expected to mentor their younger counterparts. Run alongside them in fitness, hit the occasional ball with them and generally show an interest in their tennis. We, DTA, are a family and all members take pride in themselves and their team mates.
