The ultimate opportunity to take your tennis game to the next level

 

At Smith Stearns Tennis Academy, we’re proud to prepare athletes for the highest level of competition possible in both collegiate and professional tennis through our full-time academy. Our track record speaks for itself, as we’ve developed hundreds of state, sectional, national, and international junior tennis champions, as well as having the best college placement program in the country. Students join us from all around the world to be trained by our top notch coaches and to be a part of our elite junior tennis academy experience on beautiful Hilton Head Island at The Sea Pines Resort.

Our goal in our Full-Time tennis academy is to have a strong focus on individual junior tennis player development, by taking a personal approach to meeting each player’s training and fitness needs. With a passionate commitment to excellence, we help students achieve a well-rounded lifestyle so they are better prepared and poised for success in all areas of life.

Smith Stearns offers two types of Full-Time Tennis Programs. The Full-Time – PM ONLY Program is for students who attend school in the morning and complete their training in the afternoon. The Full-Time – ALL DAY Program is tailored to accommodate our online school students needs, or our Hilton Head Prep mid-day program students, who are looking to play in two sessions per day. Both programs run for 9.5 months during the academic year. The majority of our players will continue to train with the Academy during the summer months as well in our summer camp.

Please note for rain delays: we’re fortunate to live in a beautiful Lowcountry sub-tropical climate. When rain does occur, it’s usually for short periods of time and has a minimal effect on our training schedule. During such rainy weather, our students train at our Smith Stearns Sports Performance Center and participate in a combination of educational tennis workshops and physical fitness exercises. No refunds are given for suspension of on-court play due to rain. Our gym workouts and fitness are a part of the Smith Stearns tennis program.
