Academy level players are the top players in the program! These players are high level players in the area that are qualified to be in the class according to the professional tennis staff. These players are JV, varsity, tournament or collegiate focused and are committed to tennis and determined to put the time and effort into improving their game.

Elite-1 (Ages 13 – 18):
The Academy enrollment is limited and participants must play UTSA tournaments and/or be members of their High School Varsity or Junior Varsity team. Academy selection is based on ranking /tryout /invite criteria. This level is open to collegiate level players.

Elite-2 (Ages 10-14):

Each player will have progressed through the junior program and then based on player objectives/ skill level advance into the Academy. Participants in Elite Academy II are becoming actively engaged in their tennis development, are fundamentally sound with their tennis movement, and have the ability to hit topspin. There will be an emphasis on advanced patterns and footwork to utilize the full court.
