Ivan Lendl International Junior Tennis Academy Announces Fall 2013 Class  |

(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.) – Ivan Lendl International Junior Tennis Academy (Ivan Lendl IJTA) – led by the former No.1 player in the world and coach to Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray – announces a fall class from seven states and three countries.

 

The full-time program (grades five to 12) at Ivan Lendl IJTA is based on philosophies Lendl followed to become one of the greatest players in tennis history and capture eight Grand Slams. The Academy focuses daily instruction on classic fundamentals, leading-edge biomechanics, strength training / fitness and mental preparation.

 

Lendl and his staff subscribe to a hands-on approach with juniors, instilling dedication, focus, hard work, motivation and overall preparation.

 

“Our Academy offers an exclusive opportunity to train daily with passionate players from around the world while following a personalized performance plan to reach individual academic and athletic goals,” says Rob Castorri, Executive Director of Ivan Lendl IJTA.

 

The new semester began Aug. 19. Students hail from Germany, Mongolia and the U.S. (Alabama, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina).

 

For half of the day, students attend Heritage Academy, a progressive and diverse academic institution for adolescents pursuing extra-curricular passions. The school boasts 100 percent college acceptance rate for all students.
