Program Supplements


All-around fitness for better athletic performance.

In addition to world-class tennis instruction, Smith Stearns makes daily fitness training an integral part of its programs.

Each full-time student receives a full fitness assessment, baseline fitness testing, a personal fitness manual, and professional guidance. All test results are confidential, used only by the Academy for the student’s benefit.

Our fitness curriculum includes the development of functional strength training, speed, agility, motor control, balance, first-step quickness, core strength and dynamic flexibility. Students are also taught sport-specific testing, psychology, sports nutrition and the care and prevention of athletic injuries.

A staff of physicians, sports physiotherapists and orthopedic surgeons coordinates training and medical requirements, including Sports Medicine, Physical Therapy and targeted post-rehabilitation exercise.

Many of our athletes take advantage of private and semi-private sport enhancement sessions, focused on improving specific aspects of their performance.
