Nick Saviano Tennis Academy
 
I searched and read some old stuff by I want some fresh posts. Does anyone have any experience with this academy?

Yes, Nick is a great guy and a great teacher. He works with Sloane Stephens, a great young player. He gets many kids into college.

Before you go grab his book called Maximum Tennis. You can get a used copy in great shape for under $10.00.

The book gives you the details on his teaching philosophy so you can be sure it sounds like what you want.

Academy is run at Sunrise Tennis Club - where I play a lot -It is a nice facility

Nick Saviano used to be a national coach and really knows his stuff. I agree with getting the book, one of the best tennis books ever.

I played there for six weeks as a junior over the summer. It is an excellent camp with many top players and college players. Nick is an excellent coach and so are all of his assistants. The only problem I had was that there is no boarding, so I had to stay in a hotel. The camp is all business, meaning very serious, but can transform your game.

Yup - although it is about 30 minutes from my house, I play there because I like it even though there are a number of places closer to me.

Yeah, I think they could help me there a lot more than they could at IMG

But i looked on the site and they only have a full time program and an after school program, nothing in between.
It would be better if they had a weekly program like a lot of the other academies.

babolat15 02-05-2010 06:54 AM

They do have a weekly program, they just dont really describe it well on the website. The weekly price for the summer is the same if you come a week during the school year.

I agree - really a good program.
Here is another one 10 min away http://synergytennis.org/about/

Now Saviano understands player development. Great coach with big passion for the game.

Will check his place out in our next trip to South Florida - thanks for the info.

FloridaAG 04-30-2010 01:33 PM

Post when you are going to be there -

Great coach with older kids , well run Academy. But I dont think Nick has the patience with younger kids that Rick Macci has - I would recommend his Academy for 12 years upward, Rick's for kids younger than that.

chalkflewup 05-05-2010 02:36 AM

I'd like to know what Macci charges per hour but, I honestly have no idea. I've heard some absolutely insane fees. Anyone know?

flat 05-05-2010 03:03 AM

Per my other thread (which didn't get a response)...still looking for an summer academy (for ~ 2 weeks) in FL or Austin area that plays predominately on clay.

Any info would be appreciated.

chalkflewup 05-05-2010 03:06 AM

What part of FL? Or does it matter? And how old?

You are spot on. Rick is great with the very young ones. Nick can get a little short with them! Both know the game inside and out.
