Our Coaches

*Please note that coaches pay for / reserve court time and commit to being at the facility for any scheduled private lessons. Not showing up for lessons costs the coach money, and with many of the coaches having a wait-list for private lessons, a young lady likely misses a window for instruction. With the exception of emergencies, you are responsible for paying for private lessons unless you notify coaches 24 hours in advance.

If you email a coach regarding a private lesson and do not hear back from them within 1-2 days, please email
