X-Factor Performance Tennis

Designed with the sole objective of developing junior players beyond Intermountain tennis, competitive at the national level and into collegiate tennis scholarships. More than 15 years of success developing top national and ITF ranked junior players, awarded scholarships to the NCAA’s best college tennis programs.

Student Mission Statement:

“Create a sense of urgency and hold yourself accountable for how you commit to your sport. Own your practices and training. Own what you do in tournaments to move yourself ahead as a player and competitor. Develop your style of play and execute relentlessly. Live in the moment and try to get better with every ball. Aim high and be specific in your ambitions. Control only what you can and don’t worry about the rest of it. Do this and great things will happen!”

Each student will be guided and directed through daily drills and practices allowing them to develop these athlete intangible characteristics. Over the years, parents have asked me this question the most; What does it take to achieve a scholarship at a NCAA major-five conference tennis program? The above is the best I can answer that with a short response.
