TVS Aces (ages 4-6)

Fall 2016 program
Begins September 12 for 12 weeks

Monday or Wednesday, 1 lesson per week
2:45-3:30    45 minutes per week               $215.00

TVS Aces provides the perfect start to get your child ready for learning tennis and a lifetime of active fun. The program focuses on learning through play and developing active habits that help your child build the skills that they need for starting school. Every lesson includes key skills around literacy and numeracy, called Set 4 School skills such as letter sounds, numbers, rhyming, shapes and colors. 

After tennis class, the Set 4 School skills are repeated in a take-home activity sheet and bedtime story. Children learn as they play, draw, and listen, and TVS Aces provides the perfect environment for pre-school learning. The program is based on six broad concepts so that children develop more than just tennis. 

Body and Movement: They learn fine motor skills, which are the basis of all athletic endeavors. 

People: They learn about the existence of others, learning to cooperate, play, and compete. 

Objects: Having mastered space, we start to control objects within it. In tennis this is usually a ball and racquet, but we include a variety of other equipment such as balloons and scarves. 

Brain: We develop our Set 4 School skills to get a head start on school. 

Space: Tennis is about keeping a ball in a given space, and we learn to make the ball go over nets and barriers, changing ball height and understanding in and out. 

Tennis Staff: This program is led by TVS’s Myron Grunberg, who has a particular aptitude for developing younger players, and is assisted by Manish Bhatt.

There will be no lessons the week of Thanksgiving and school holidays. 

Inclement Weather: In the event of class cancelation due to inclement weather, GST will make every effort to reschedule class before the conclusion of the 12-week session. 

Cancellations and Withdrawals: Refunds or credits cannot be issued after a program has begun, except for medical reasons. Doctors' report is required. 

Payment: Full payment must be made at the time of registration. Payments will be processed through the school system. All payments are to be made by check (made payable to TVS). Registration forms can be found at the Central Admin desk.


TVS Hot Shots (ages 7-8)

Fall 2016 program
Begins September 13 for 12 weeks

Tuesday or Thursday
3:35-4:35          1 hr. per week.              $264.00  

TVS Hotshots follows the progressive tennis system of scaled training for kids. It is an exciting format designed to bring kids into the game by utilizing modified equipment, shorter court dimensions and modified scoring, all tailored to age and size. The program uses 75% slower tennis balls that bounce at a level proportionate to a child's height. We stress the importance of rallying with partners, and players develop sufficient consistency to sustain longer rallies. The coaching emphasizes a focused approach to the game with a fun and encouraging environment.

In keeping with TVS’s outstanding academic and athletic accomplishments, we are proud to introduce Progressive Tennis to our TVS families.  The program is led by our very own Myron Grunberg, who is a certified USPTA  Progressive Tennis (quick start) teacher, and is assisted by Manish Bhatt.

In the last several years a revolution has started to take hold on the tennis courts around the world. Most commonly called “Progressive Tennis,” it is a natural application of the game-based approach (form follows function) as it applies to junior development.

Pioneered in European countries like France and Belgium, it is now the development method of choice for the majority of the world’s leading tennis nations including the United States. None other than the likes of Roger Federer is the spokesperson for Progressive Tennis in his home country of Switzerland. Belgium is recognized as the world leader in Progressive Tennis development with their program spawning players like Justin Henin and Oliver Rochus.

First and foremost, Progressive Tennis is a system of scaled competition for students. Along with the competition come development methods, drills, organization, etc.  Click here to read more about Progressive Tennis.

A Tennis Experience Tailored to Fit Individual Needs
Coach Grunberg has adopted the philosophy that there is no cookbook of coaching techniques that applies identically to each player. We emphasize the development of life skills and educate our players to understand that the ideas and concepts learned on the tennis court apply to their lives outside tennis. We take a global approach by addressing the physiological, psychological, tactical and technical skills each player needs to reach his/her full potential. 

High Performance Coaching
High performance tennis coaching is an art. Some tennis academies imitate other coaching philosophies they have heard or read about, neglecting the fact that no program is one-size-fits-all. This is where coaching ceases to be a science and becomes an art. By operating on such a small scale, we are able to provide each of our players the proper training program that suits his/her individual needs.

Fitness Philosophy
Our fitness training program is structured in terms of competency over capacity. We evaluate each player individually in order to reveal dysfunction and asymmetry and we carefully customize training programs based on tournament schedules. Above all, we set up for success by precisely evaluating movement systems, instantaneous levels of preparation that we can use heart rate variability for, and the sensory systems, in terms of vision and touch.

We strongly believe that tennis fitness development encompasses three main segments of athletic training:


1) Improving and maintaining fundamental movement skills of mobility and motor control

2) Increasing strength, speed, power, and endurance


3) Mastery of technical and strategic tennis skills

The above principles of the program are graded and prioritized by the Functional Performance Pyramid. The most caudal and widest portion of the pyramid is Functional Movement (3), which includes mobility, stability, and motor control. The central portion of the pyramid, which should not exceed the caudal portion in width, is Functional Performance (4), which includes limit force, rate of force development, and endurance of all qualities. The cephalad portion of the pyramid, not to exceed the Functional Performance or Functional Movement in width, is Functional Skill (5). 

Prioritizing or improving any of the components of the qualities above begins with systematic evaluation of the body's movement spectrum, the body's constant state of preparedness and recovery, and the body's sensory systems. Utilizing best practice of science and practical experience, evaluating these categories allows for manipulating the training program for efficient and expansive windows for recovery and technical skill sessions.
