Our mission:
            By focusing on play, building character, and championing individual development, we empower our players to grow and develop at their own pace.

How we operate:
            Using proven methods we offer (3) three levels of instruction.
Level 1:
Starting with basic motor skills we teach the fundaments of movement, hand/eye coordination, communication, boundaries, and play.
Level 2:
We introduce proper techniques for hitting the ball as well as grips, serving, scoring, playing and teamwork.
Level 3:
The where’s and why’s of placement and control needed for efficient playing skills are introduced by using play and practice coupled with instruction.

Levels 1 and 2 are played on smaller courts and level 3 is a full 78 ft court.

FKCC Junior Academy located at 4000 Sombrero Blvd consists of tiered groupings at multiple times and days and includes high school and middle school players as participates and mentors. Our program also offers 3 camps per season: during school breaks at Christmas and spring times. The cost per participant will be $0. Donations however will be accepted with all donations being used to purchase supplies, racquets and equipment for needy students. 30% of the net donations would be paid to FKCC monthly for facility usage. All remaining funds will be donated to the Marathon High School Athletic Fund. The academy will also be offering scholarships to aspiring players good for private lessons. To help promote synergy for children as they develop from the park and private programs to high school athletic participants I also donate my time to the Marathon Park Department for tennis instruction as well as continuing as the Marathon High School tennis coach.
