ABOUT THE ACADEMY
Programs For You
Today’s game requires top physical and mental conditioning to effectively compete at the highest level. Our program is designed to address the tennis-specific needs of junior players looking to maximize their tennis skills.
Our trained and certified Ivan Lendl instructors will teach you to become a better, more knowledgeable player. Improve your serve, returns, backhand, court management, and mental side of your game.
A balanced social life is essential to a successful experience at Ivan Lendl IJTA. On the weekends, students have numerous options; beach, bike rides, tennis, horseback riding, relax by the pool, or go on one of our many planned and supervised outings.
Heritage Academy is dedicated to providing progressive differentiated instruction for students who are pursuing an extra-curricular passion, fostering within them responsibility, motivation for learning, and personal dignity.
“My son, Kameron, is 12 and had just finished playing in the USTA 14 & Under Co-ed Nationals in South Carolina. We then attended the Ivan Lendl IJTA and he had a blast. All the staff had great energy for the kids who live and train there year round as well as those who were there for a short period of time. The training was very specific to individual needs and in small groups. The match play opportunities allowed each player to progress and begin competing against higher level players.” - Ken DeHart, Parent (PTR & USPTA Master Professional USA High Performance Coach)
