High Performance Program

The Green Belt Tennis Club high-performance program offers an “athlete centred” approach, where we provide the environment to help each athlete reach their tennis goals. We aim to give each athlete the feeling of success through a stimulating program focused on discipline, determination, and dedication to skill development. Players in this program will be striving from an early age to become strong provincial, national and even international level players. The program will also encourage and assist in the pursuit of an academic / athletic NCAA scholarship upon completion of their senior year in High School.

MINIMUM PROGRAM ELGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS:

  • Must be a member in good standing with Tennis NL for all event registration
  • Must commit to the high-performance program for the entire2020-2021 training season (September – June)
  • All players must be evaluated and placed into the appropriate program by the coaching staff

PROGRAM CONSISTS OF:

● Training with some of the best players in Atlantic Canada
● Ongoing video analysis with athletes and coaches
● Psychological, tactical, technical, and physical training incorporated to ensure a global approach to success
● Focus and Motivation - ongoing evaluations among coaching staff during the year to ensure this is instilled
● On-court fitness testing and training
● Player plans based on Tennis Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development model (LTAD)
● Options for team travel and/or competitive trips

PROGRAM EXPECTATIONS & REQUIREMENTS:

  • Exhibit a high level of intensity, focus and respect at every practice
  • Attend all training sessions (unless previously discussed and approved by Head Coach)
  • Part of training as a student-athlete is learning to manage off-court time efficiently. As an athlete gets older, those skills become more and more important. As we strive to help develop future student-athletes, we ask for parent support in encouraging players to schedule their study and homework times around tennis as would be expected in a collegiate setting. We will work with all athletes when this may not be possible. Please discuss your concerns with the head coach.
  • Follow suggested tournament schedule as proposed by the coaches
  • Players are expected to complete their player journals on a weekly/daily basis
  • Players are expected to play outside the program ie: match play, serving practice and / or private and semi –private lessons

As part of the suggested development of each player, we will be encouraging weekly matchplay outside of structured group and private lessons. Matches are played without a coach’s feedback, so the only way to foster good decision making and to ease game-day nerves, is to play more matches. We will encourage each high-performance athlete to also have a club membership to arrange their own matches outside of program times. We will also host a staff organized match time on Sunday’s where players will continue to gain match play experience.
