Society loves competition. Its healthy spirit motivates almost everything we do - achievement on the playing field, debate amongst fans, growth in the business place, personal expansion.
In the fiercely competitive world of big time junior tennis, there is competition for wins, rankings, wild cards, endorsements, scholarships and more. Nowhere else do all the prizes become more relevant at one time than at the summer National Championship events – USTA National ‘Hard Courts’ and ‘Clay Courts’.
For this reason, internationally respected coach, Nick Saviano, has invited tournament-level junior players to participate in his proven program for players and families desiring to maximize their National Championship opportunities. Saviano High Performance Tennis (SHPT) focuses on "excellence in personal and player development," and having coached his students to 25 USTA National Championship singles titles, Saviano's reputation is unrivaled.
“I have been a student of Nick’s since I started the sport at 9 years old. Nick is a person of great character and integrity, when combined with his technical acumen, psychological understanding, tactical expertise, and developmental knowledge creates an unmatched ability to develop and nurture talent,” said Justin Gimelstob, TV Analyst, Member ATP Board of Representatives, Retired ATP World Tour Player
The spotlight at ‘Hard Courts’ and ‘Clay Courts’ is intense as the stakes are high – One ‘off-day’ can drop a player on a depth chart while performing at full potential can open the next door. Just as an Olympic athlete trains four years leading up to the Summer Olympics, junior tennis players train year-round and intensify their schedule once the school year ends in preparation for the summer National Championship events. Choosing a high performance training program becomes critical – not just for entry into these events, but for ultimate success.
Nick Saviano shares: “What motivates me is helping students strive for excellence, using tennis as a vehicle by which this is accomplished. Our core belief at SHPT – my personal core coaching philosophy – is working with young people bears a sacred trust. It is an enormous responsibility when a young person looks to you for guidance and is willing to follow your instructions implicitly. When you are able to help that tennis player strive for excellence while simultaneously teaching fundamental life skills, the rewards and personal gain are comparable to none. I wake up in the morning fired up and ready to go whether I’m working with an extremely young player or an established professional - the excitement of helping them strive towards achieving their potential motivates me every day.”
For most juniors, the ultimate prize is a college scholarship. Training from an early age, developing as a player and a person through each division – 12’s, 14’s 16’s 18’s – is part of the evolution in becoming a valuable member of any team. An effective, respected tennis mentor combined with nurturing camaraderie amongst peers paves the way to scholarship opportunities. SHPT can proudly boast a 100% college scholarship success rate for their full-time students. College Placement Record
