Tennis Academy of California
With a little hard work and intense focus, look at what the Tennis Academy of California kids have accomplished.
Our Success Stories
Casie is the Tennis Academy of California’s first enrollment. Casie always comes to training with a smile, ready to play and give her all. Although she has been relatively highly ranked throughout her So Cal Jr career (G10’s #5, G12’s #19, G14’s #36, G16’s #1, G18’s #3), she is always striving for improvement and helping the other players around her to improve. She has won some of So Cal’s most prestigious junior tournaments (Woody Hunt, Ojai, JP Yamasaki 2x’s) and participated in almost all of the significant National Tournaments (Easter Bowl – Doubles Quarter Finalist, Winter Nationals – Singles Quarter Finalist, Indoors and Hardcourts – Doubles Semi-Finalist). As the end of her junior career approaches, we are actively helping her explore her NCAA Division 1 opportunities. Update ~ She has committed to play tennis at Wake Forest University! Congrats! Go DEACS!
Emily graduated through our Development 1 (green ball), Satellite and Open development programs to reach a top ranking in the So Cal Girls 12 of #49. She is quickly moving up in the G14’s rankings.
Melanie is a long term player at the Tennis Academy of California. Although she has had a rough road, battling various injuries, she emerges as a member of the 2 time CIF Tennis Champions South Torrance High School and will be playing tennis at Maryville College (D3) in Tennessee in the fall of 2019. Congratulations! GO SCOTS!
Erica came to us about a year and a half ago. She always comes to training with a smile and ready to try her best. She has had a bit of a breakthrough and is currently ranked #36 in So California G12’s.
Sidney relocated to So Cal during the summer of 2018. In 9 months she has become a top 100 player in the So Cal G12’s. She finished her 12’s career at #90, and we look forward to what you will do in the G14’s.
Former Success Stories
Ben was also one of our early enrollments. He came to us ranked in the high 100’s of the So Cal Boy’s 12. We got him down to the low 30’s. He has played in many National tournaments and represented So Cal in the 2016 USTA 12’s Zonals in AZ.
Nnena had previously trained with Lizardo Tennis Academy – Cerritos and had developed into a very good player but unfortunate circumstances took her away from competitive tennis. At the time, Nnena had been out of competitive tennis for a couple years, but after connecting with Coach Dan Wooten, her high school team coach, she decided to train with us for a while and re-enter competitive tennis. Subsequently she earned a full tennis scholarship to San Diego State University (D1). Go Aztecs!
Sarai graduated through our Development 1 (green ball), Satellite and Open development programs to reach a top ranking in the So Cal Girls 12 of #34. She has played in many National tournaments and represented So Cal in the 2018 USTA 12’s Zonals in AZ.
Sundeep was also one of our early enrollments. He came to us ranked in the high 100’s of the So Cal Boy’s 12. He was a pleasure to help develop. He came to training with a great work ethic and was very coachable At his departure he was ranked in the Top 10 B12’s in So Cal.
After only 11 months of training, the Tennis Academy of California has already surpassed our expectations! TAC was exactly the tennis training program that our ten-year-old daughter needed to get to the next level. TAC trains players that are intending to have a solid foundation in tennis technique and fitness.
Consistency training and footwork are also major developmental areas that coaches drill. Coach Dan and Coach Pat are patient but firm and are equally nurturing to their male and female players. Be prepared to hit lots of balls with no waiting in lines.
Training sessions have a one on one customized feel, and Our daughter loves going to practice. TAC is her happy place!
Our son, Dylan, has been attending TAC for over two years. He’s loved it and we have too. Coach Dan and Coach Pat are experts in all facets of the game of tennis. And more importantly they are fantastic with the kids.
They teach their lessons in a manner that your child can easily understand the lesson being taught and they are extremely patient.
I truly believe the coaches monitor the strengths and weaknesses of each of their students so that they can adjust their lessons and teaching accordingly.
The TAC tennis sessions are fun, challenging, educational and more importantly, the kids hit a ton of balls.
If you want your kid to become a high level tennis player and you want them to love the experience in becoming one, I can’t recommend TAC enough.
