Request for Academy Information
 
Hi
I am new to this forum and new to North Georgia. Have two kids who play under 10 and under12. We have a good coach but looking for a good academy program in the Johns Creek/Duluth/Cumming area.
Any advise will be appreciated.

Thanks much
Grace

Yes, you are definitely new here. I will let GATennis handle this one. He should be here momentarily...

GATennis is the guy to ask.... He is inbound.... Or at least he should be....

call Torrey Hawkins at Windward Academy. also, call Bill Ozaki at USTA Southern - he knows all the top coaches and will be able to point you in the right direction.

thank you all for your advice. I have two options now - should I put them in a tennis academy like windward or ACE there they can go twice a week or should I put them in a small tennis club where they can hit 4 days a week. In the smaller club my 11 year old gets to hit with kids much older than him so he gets good experience. What do you all think? The price is the same for both - 2 days at windward = 4 days at smaller academy.

Without a doubt STRIVE TENNIS ACADEMY!!! Heath and Lindsey are incredible!! He has 5 students now and im sure he would accept one more if the child is committed to being great.I promise that you will not find anything better anywhere.If you need his number let me know.

If he or she is with Heath he or she will 100% get a college scholarship. Unless they decide to play on the tour.

I wish i could afford to train with Heath full time. I have to only get lessons every other weekend. The homeschool academy is 3200.00 a month.
