The CCAS, together with Gosford District Tennis Association (GDTA), have developed a pre-elite junior development program, the program includes on court and off court components. The major emphasis is on individual skill development and game sense.
Nathan Healey the Head Coach of the program is very excited about the program and said: “The athletes chosen will gain a real competitive advantage over other boys and girls their age. Six (6) months of skill and game sense training, as well as gym and education sessions will give these athletes an invaluable kick start to their tennis development. I have seen first hand, how a high performance program can pave the way for athletes to reach higher levels of competition, and I’m looking forward to being involved with our first intake of athletes.”
The Central Coast Academy of Sport Tennis Program is a gender neutral program.
Interested athletes must register via the online application form or by contacting Gosford Tennis Club on 02 4325 2921 by Monday May 15.
Registered athletes will then trial for positions at Gosford District Tennis Centre on (Trial Date 1) Thursday 27 April and (Trial Date 2) Tuesday May 16 both commencing at 5:00pm. Each trialist will be reviewed by a selection panel of CCAS coaches and independent coaches, assessments will be based on both objective and subjective measures.
The CCAS will select a squad of pre-Elite Tennis players, committed to advancing their game both physically and mentally. 100% commitment to the outlined schedule is expected of all selected athletes, so that they fully benefit from the professional programming.
The CCAS decision regarding athlete selection is based on objective and subjective measures and the CCAS holds final responsibility for the selection of athlete’s into this high performance program.
