“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)
